Acupuncture Weight Control Program

Acupuncture is an adjunct therapy to weight control as a weight control program involves with multi factors such as dietary/life style changes, exercises and stress management.  Acupuncture has been an effective treatment for weight loss and the maintenance of the healthy weight. 

In our clinic, we help people who are willing to change their lifestyle.  Acupuncture Weight Control Program is not a wonder cure or brings an instant result but it requires the patient’s strong will and desire to “change” like any other conditions you may have. 

Acupuncture release endorphins which make you calm and relax to help deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating and binge eating on high calories foods.  Acupuncture also aids the digestive and hormonal systems to rebalance the metabolism and the ability to concentrate during the program.   

Treatment Procedure

At first, patients come in for an initial consultation to discuss their particular patterns of overeating, digestive difficulties, stress levels etc.  Then we check the general state of their conditions and constitutions (body type).  There is no single treatment for all.  We believe everyone is unique so the treatment patterns should be tailored to the individual’s. We also check the tongue and pulse which give us some clues as to why they are gaining weight.  

We insert the extreme thin acupuncture needles into specific points on the body and in the ear.  Acupuncture needles are fine, sterile and disposable.  Acupuncture is gentle and safe process without unwanted side effects and discomfort.  If you experience any sensation, it is often described as a mosquito bite and disappears very quickly.  We make sure that the patients are very comfortable and relaxed while the needles are in place.  The more you are relaxed during the acupuncture treatment, the better the results.  Many patients fall asleep during the treatment as they feel a tremendous sense of relaxation and calm.  

In our office, there is a chiropractor and he can check your spinal alignment to find out if there are any misalignments that push the organs which may be interrupting with the digestion or the bowel movement.  A regular spinal check is important for a whole body health as all the organs are laid underneath the spine.  Not to mention, acupuncture and chiropractic are for pain management as well in case the pain bothers you during exercise.
