Can Acupuncture Help Weight Loss?
Acupuncture is an effective tool that may assist with weight loss by reducing appetite, stimulating metabolism, decreasing cravings and irritability. Weight gain may be due to an imbalance of hormones, low metabolism, over eating, weak digestion, fatigue or lack of exercise. With the right tools to start your weight loss you will build long lasting results to improve yourself physically and emotionally. A treatment plan customized for your unique needs along with a healthy diet and moderate exercise can make it easier to achieve the best acupuncture weight loss results.
Your acupuncture treatment will begin with an exam reviewing your health history, daily routines and any stressors that may be contributing to your weight gain. With this valuable information in addition to your exam findings, an effective treatment plan will be developed and gone over with you at your next visit. On average most patients will start noticing positive changes within the first 2 weeks. Treatments range from 1-2 times a week for 6-8 weeks. Some patients may benefit further with Chinese herbal medicine as recommended by your licensed Chicago acupuncturist, Sunae Son.
