Weight Loss

A Natural Approach To Healing

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a holistic, natural approach to health and wellness by working to restore the balance and flow of the body’s Qi. According to Chinese Medicine theories, there are numerous reasons why people gain weight, or have difficulty losing weight. Your practitioner will take into consideration the factors that may have led to weight gain, such as, your emotional and mental well-being, as well as your lifestyle.

Exercise is a key component of any weight loss program, and your exercise plan can be tailored to fit your needs, as well as your weight and health goals.

Your diet is another important area to consider, as a healthy diet and nutritional counseling can help you achieve your health goals. Stress management and activities that help to reduce anxiety include meditation, gentle exercises, and breathing exercises.

Acupuncture and Weight Loss

  • Support Digestion: Acupuncture supports the body to help generate an efficient digestive process.
  • Release Endorphins: When changing your diet, may people experience cravings, which can result in binge eating. Cravings in the body are often due to a lack of endorphins. Acupuncture can help to balance out the cravings by helping the body to release endorphins.
  • Reduce Stress: When your body begins to increase production of the “stress hormone,” cortisol, it can begin to alter the metabolism. However, by releasing endorphins, cortisol can be neutralized.
