12 Sep 2023

Dr Jerry YEUNG, Management Committee Member of the Research Centre for Chinese Medicine Innovation (RCMI) and Associate Professor in the School of Nursing (SN), was featured in RTHK’s TV programme “Healthpedia”, sharing traditional Chinese medicine perspective on sleep and insomnia.

Dr Yeung mentioned that Chinese medicine believes in the connection between emotions and organs, and five organs (heart, liver, spleen, lung and kidney) are linked to five basic human emotions (anger, joy, anxiety, sorrow, melancholy, fright); insomnia is most closely linked to the heart, and is also related to the liver, spleen and kidney. Dr Yeung also explained the relationship between dreaming and insomnia, and introduced the traditional Chinese medicine herbal formulae, acupuncture and acupoint massage that can effectively relieve insomnia.
