Weight loss acupuncture: does it work?

Weight loss acupuncture: does it work?

Are you struggling to lose weight even after trying diet and exercise plans? Weight loss acupuncture might benefit you!

There are several reasons for weight gain that you might not be able to address through diet and exercise alone. Some, such as overeating and binge eating, or physical ailments that prevent you from exercise, are easier to spot, but harder to overcome without help. Other challenges, such as a slow metabolism, thyroid issues, stress, or hormone imbalances might be harder for you to identify by yourself and can hinder your success if left untreated. Acupuncture can help address the underlying causes of your weight gain so that you can get your weight loss back on track. For example, if your weight gain is caused by a metabolic issue, acupuncture can help stimulate your metabolism and overall digestion so that your body processes food more efficiently. Or, if you noticed more weight gain near or after menopause, acupuncture can help to balance your hormones.

Weight loss acupuncture can help:

  • Control cravings
  • Reduce your appetite
  • Balance your hormones
  • Stimulate your metabolism
  • Reduce stress levels
  • Improve bowel movements, bloating, and overall digestion
  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Decrease muscle and joint pain

After an initial assessment to identify the acupuncture protocols specific to your situation, sessions typically last about 30 minutes. Treatments are relaxing and pain-free.

Weight loss acupuncture can be used on its own, but, for quicker results, you should combine regular acupuncture visits with a healthy diet and exercise plan.
