Acupuncture is effective for assisting in weight loss

Acupuncture for weight loss

There is no fast and easy way to losing weight. It takes mental and physical determination. However, with acupuncture, herbal medicine, supplements, diet and lifestyle advice we can assist you in getting to your ideal weight sooner.

Along with choosing to eat right and exercise, there are a few things that you can do to boost your weight loss and increase metabolism.

How does acupuncture help with weight loss/obesity?

Acupuncture is an old form of healing that has been around for over 5000 years. Acupuncture is used to stimulate the body’s metabolism and help decrease fat stores. By increasing metabolism and the function of the Spleen and Stomach it is able to reduce fatty deposits and assist in more muscle tone. Several studies show that acupuncture has positive effects on obesity in adults (Zhang R.Q et al 2017, “Acupuncture for the treatment of obesity in adults”.)

With regular treatments, clients may notice symptoms such as better digestion and metabolism, more regular bowel motions and increased energy. With the right individualised treatments including combinations of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet, lifestyle advice and supplements patients will see a decrease in weight over time.
