Weight Management and Control
Program and Treatment
People will go to drastic measures to lose or manage weight. Fad diets ask you to eat an unnatural and unhealthy diet, such as a meal plan thatconsists of low-calorie food items. They may work in the short term because of the low caloric intake, but most likely there is no way you can keep it up.
The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of the individual patient. Acupuncture points on the body will be chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood (stimulating the metabolism) and calming the nervous system. From a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, the acupuncture points, foods and herbs that are chosen to assist with weight loss directly influence the Qi (or energy) of the spleen and liver systems to treat the root imbalances that are causing the weight gain. From a Western perspective, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine have been proven to energize the body, maximize the absorption of nutrients, regulate elimination, control overeating, suppress the appetite, and reduce anxiety.
