Weight Loss

Acupuncture for Weight Loss

Extra kilos are a concern for many people, and something that can be difficult to achieve. Acupuncture weight loss is one treatment that may be helpful. It has been found to reduce both the number on the scales and (critically for heart health) cholesterol levels by mobilising energy stores. Studies into the connection between acupuncture and weight loss have shown that people receiving acupuncture lost twice as many kilos as those who were on a diet alone. In addition, those receiving regular treatments decreased their levels of total cholesterols, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol. This suggests that it is not just an effective treatment, but also a safe choice for those with other health problems.

We use acupuncture to restore the balance within the body, improve circulation. Chinese herbal medicine may be used concurrently to improve the digestive functions to achieve more effective results, in combination with a healthy diet. A typical course of treatment may require 10 sessions, 2 to 3 sessions per week. To target post-pregnancy accumulation of fat in the abdomen area, acupuncture for weight loss combined with pinch fat massage can be very effective in restoring the pre-pregnancy physique. After treatment, you should notice a decrease in both weight and body fat percentage. You may also notice reduced waist, hip and thigh measurements; this depends on your overall approach, including exercise.
