This time of year we are getting more patients wanting to lose weight. Here is an overview of how acupuncture can help with this: 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. We combine our knowledge of eastern and western dietary theory into a effective and sustainable weight loss plan. We also often prescribe a Chinese herbal formula that we have had great success with in helping to lose weight. We currently are offering a weight loss package at a discounted rate.
