Want success in achieving your weight goals?
Acupuncture is a natural and safe means of getting you to your optimum weight!
There are many reasons people become overweight – lack of exercise, overeating, hormone imbalances, slowed metabolism, and poor nutrition are a few of the most common.
Acupuncture is a great alternative treatment for establishing a healthy weight. It works as an appetite suppressant, aids in digestion, helps boost metabolism and enables relaxation. It also strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients and breaking down of fats.
Best of all, with acupuncture, there are no harmful side effects and no possibility for addiction.
Acupuncture affects both physical wellness and mental aspects of weight loss. An increased level of endorphins is helpful in curbing your cravings, and this can be particularly helpful for those who deal with emotional eating. Acupuncture will leave you feeling calm and relaxed and often less hungry.
Regular acupuncture treatments have also been shown to help tone and shrink the stomach muscle, and this helps you feel full faster.
Along with a healthy eating plan and appropriate exercise, acupuncture is a wonderful way to help you lose weight.
What if I want to gain weight?
Some people also struggle with maintaining a healthy baseline weight, especially those who are dealing with continued high-stress situations, may be undergoing chemotherapy treatments, or suffer from an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia.
Acupuncture treats the whole person. We understand there is a connection between the mental, emotional and physical aspects of each patient, and acupuncture treatments are tailored to treat the individual. Many studies have shown that acupuncture can help those with generalized anxiety and depression, two conditions often diagnosed in eating disorder patients.
Acupuncture also can work to stimulate the appetite, give you a sense of well-being and relaxation, and allows the body to get back into balance.
