Acupuncture for Weight Loss, Yes Really.

If you are like most people in America trying to lose weight, you’ve tried every diet, exercise program, and supplement on the market.  But the likelihood is that you are still struggling with the weight.

The question you have in your mind is, I’ve tried everything else, can acupuncture work?  The answer is yes, but it is important to understand that it is not a magic bullet.  You still have to make lifestyle changes, and dietary changes to lose that weight and keep it off.  But once you make that decision to step forward and really dedicate yourself to being the best version of you that you know you can be, then come see us.  This is the turning point, the point at which dynamic change can happen.  We will work with you on building a customized plan for a new healthy lifestyle.  We will help you choose exercise, and a diet that works with your life, and your tastes.

How can acupuncture help?  Consider it like the training wheels on your bicycle when you were first learning how to ride.  Acupuncture will regulate your metabolism, and hormone activity to make it easier for your body to shed that weight once you have the momentum going.  Acupuncture will also help calm your appetite, and stress levels as you adjust to changes in your diet, so that you don’t get “thrown off your bicycle.” 

In the paradigm of Eastern medicine we work off of the idea that there are usually multiple causes for the same imbalance or disease.  For some, psychological stress could be the source of overeating.  For others weight gain could be due to menopause.  Still others could be struggling with metabolic fatigue.  The strength of acupuncture and Eastern medicine is that it recognizes and targets the root cause of the problem for YOU.    Acupuncture is the original "functional medicine" so your acupuncture treatment will always be customized to be the most effective for you and your specific condition.   If you would like to know more please give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
