Acupuncture Weight Loss Program

Acupuncture Weight Loss Program Acupuncture is a safe and time-tested therapy that has been used in Asia for thousands of years as an effective method for weight loss.

Unlike many other methods of weight loss, the Acupuncture Program for Weight Loss utilizes a highly individualized approach. It tackles weight problems by getting to the root cause of the issue - whether it be slow metabolism, excess water retention, poor digestive function, stress related eating, lack of energy, or all of the above. By treating an individual's unique imbalances, lasting weight loss is achieved and overall health is improved.

Our comprehensive weight loss program utilizes acupuncture and its adjunctive therapies to optimally help you lose weight safely while promoting balance and vitality. In other words, this holistic program is designed to not only make you look better, but make you feel better too. As with any effective and lasting weight loss program, these therapies work best in conjunction with a smart diet and exercise program.

The Acupuncture Weight Loss Program includes:

10 Acupuncture Treatments

These treatments are aimed at rebalancing the body's energy and addressing the underlying causes of weight gain while promoting overall health. By affecting the digestive and nervous systems of the body, metabolism can be boosted and willpower can be increased. Additionally, strategically placed acupuncture needles with electrostimulation can help to shape problem areas and reduce cellulite.

4 Cupping Treatments for Cellulite Reduction/Detoxification

A special massage cupping technique with herbal cream is used to effectively break up fat deposits under the skin while draining toxins and excess fluids in the area. A course of treatments with cupping therapy can smooth out lumps and bumps and create a more toned look. Please note there is a small additional charge for this type of cupping technique.

If cellulite is not a big concern, more generalized cupping treatments can be used to detoxify the body, relax tight muscles, and promote more effecient digestive function.

Auricular Ear Seed Therapy

Adhesive ear seeds are strategically placed on the ear as a method of continual treatment between visits. Stimulating the ear seeds causes a mild release of biochemicals, such as endorphins, by the brain and nervous system to reduce anxiety, curb the appetite, and boost willpower.

Herbal Therapy

If desired, a suitable herbal supplement is added to the program to work in conjunction with the acupuncture treatments in treating the underlying cause of the weight gain.

Energy Work

Instruction is given on how to utilize special breathing techniques that promote relaxation as well as curb hunger cravings.

Nutrition/Exercise Counseling

Adopting healthy eating habits is important in any good weight loss program. We can help provide general but individualized dietary recommendations to our patients based on goals, constitution, and dietary restrictions. However, if more complex or detailed guidelines are needed, we would suggest seeing a dietician. We encourage our patients to track daily food intake and activity levels.
