Acupuncture and Weight Loss:
Acupuncture will assist in weight loss in several ways. 1. often a sluggish metabolism is a factor in weight gain. We use methods to boost the metabolism causing the body to burn more calories. 2.overeating and cravings are essentially addictions, acupuncture can help break the cycle of cravings and overeating. 3. acupuncture balances the hormones, which is often a factor when weight loss is stubborn. 4. acupuncture is used to balance and strengthen the digestive system causing the body to eliminate excess fluids. 5. stress is often a factor in the body retaining weight. Acupuncture naturally reduces the effects of stress on the body. 6. it is often necessary to modify the diet to promote sustained and permanent weight loss.
