• Nocturnal enuresis or bedwetting is defined as emptying the bladder during sleep in children with a frequency of at least 2 times a week at the age of at least 5 years in the absence of congenital or acquired defects of the central nervous system. • Three commonly proposed mechanisms for nocturnal enuresis are: excessive urine production at night, bladder hyperactivity and inability of the child to wake in response to the bladder sensations. •With acupuncture stimulation, the levels of enkephalins and endogenous opioids are increased in the plasma and in the central nervous system.
