How does acupuncture work for Weight Loss?

Acupuncture can help in a number of ways.

  1. Because acupuncture helps change brain chemistry, it changes cravings and can change emotional attachments to food. This helps eliminate eating for reasons other than hunger. Acupuncture also helps willpower/determination making sticking to a diet easier.
  2. Acupuncture can improve metabolism and, therefore, can help a person burn more calories.
  3. Acupuncture can improve digestion/absorption of nutrients from food-this lessens the physical drive to eat.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
