If losing weight is one of your goals, you may want to try acupuncture. Let's face it, everyone is looking for the secret to weight loss. But many fall victim to the latest gimmick.
With so many different opinions about how to lose weight, it can be difficult to tell what will really work.
Fortunately, there is a technique for weight loss that has been tested for centuries: ACUPUNCTURE. This technique is safe, sound and reliable. And, even more exciting, our weight loss comprehensive care program can help you shed the weight AND become the healthiest version of you in the process.
Acupuncture addresses both the physical and mental aspects of weight loss.
Very specifically, acupuncture for weight loss is a multi-pronged approach that helps to decrease cravings, regulate digestion, reduce stress, balance hormone levels and control appetite.
How we get stuck in old patterns:
When we are under constant stress, our body releases an excess amount of a hormone called called cortisol into the system and keeps our body in a constant state of fight-or-flight.
Over time, too much cortisol throws blood sugar levels out of whack, interrupts sleep and leads to anxiety and depression. As you can see, chronic elevated cortisol levels can cause us to age quicker. Yikes!
The good news:
Acupuncture helps to soothe the sympathetic nervous system and reduce cortisol production which then results in regulating insulin.
Acupuncture stimulates specific areas in the brain to release neurochemicals and hormones that are specific to curbing food cravings and elevating mood. This can be particularly helpful for those who deal with emotional eating.
Acupuncture can also help tone the stomach muscle. This helps you feel full faster. Overeating can leave your stomach “stretched out”. Regular acupuncture treatments have been shown to help tone and shrink the stomach muscle.
For optimal results, our weight loss treatment protocol is twice weekly for 8 to 12 weeks or until you reach your desired weight.
These treatments may include a combination of auricular (ear) and body acupuncture, ear tacks or beads to leave on in-between treatments, herbal formulas and supplements, B12 Lipotropic injections, localized homeopathic lipolytic injections, ATP Bioresonance Therapy, and food and lifestyle recommendations.
In addition to touting acupuncture’s efficacy on weight loss, scientists have now provided explanations on just how acupuncture promotes weight loss:
