Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for Weight Loss
Acupuncture supports and encourages an individual physically, emotionally and mentally during a weight loss process. It can help you reach your goal weight and maintain it by promoting better digestion, improving metabolism, eliminating food cravings, settling emotions, and reducing appetite. What makes it unique is the individualized and complete program of support it provides. A treatment plan is tailored to an individual’s needs.
From an Oriental medicine perspective, specific acupuncture points, foods and herbs are chosen to assist with weight loss. These directly influence the vital energy “Qi” and blood of the body. Two main organ systems, the Stomach/Pancreas system and the Liver system are treated to re-establish balance in these body systems that most likely are out of balance. As the body returns to balance, digestion and elimination improves, carving are reduced, metabolism increases, appetite decreases and emotions stabilize.
