How does acupuncture for weight loss work?
This is an interesting question and like anything to do with acupuncture, science can't answer. What we do know from several international studies conducted over the years, as well as our own empirical evidence, is that it does work. Some of the ways that we believe weight loss acupuncture works is:
- It targets specific zones for appetite suppression. As we all know, weight loss is about burning more calories than we eat. Unfortunately, many overweight people struggle with eating less due to that horrible feeling of hunger. By suppressing our appetites naturally, it can be easier to reduce the amount we eat.
- Acupuncture is all about energy. By using acupuncture you can increase your overall energy levels. This helps in two ways, firstly, we have more energy to exercise, and secondly, the increased energy boosts our metabolism. Back to the 'eat less than you burn' philosophy, if we maintain healthy eating levels we can burn more energy, leading to increased weight loss.
- Common underlying causes of weight gain are anxiety and stress. Acupuncture has been shown to be a great at managing both of these conditions. As per our holistic approach to health, if we can address the underlying cause such as anxiety and stress, we can help with the symptom, in this case, weight gain.
- Lastly, acupuncture is fantastic at assisting with a good nights sleep. Sleep is very important for healthy weight loss, and as we all know every little bit helps.
