Weight Loss Treatment
Personalized Diagnosis & Body Analysis
An Acupuncturist will start with a comprehensive intake that includes your medical history, tongue and pulse diagnosis, and possibly abdominal palpation. The intake will help the acupuncturist determine which treatment would be best for your health. By specialized questionnaires, we determine your condition level and set up your personalized treatment. Then we analyze your body and fat condition along with body composition analyzer.
Full Body Acupuncture (includes Electro-Stimulating )
Full body acupuncture uses needles in specific points on the body to balance your system. A harmonious flow of Qi in your body will improve its functioning, especially your digestive functions. Good digestion and metabolism are important for weight loss. Acupuncture treatment can utilize point combinations like the Four Gates and Four Doors, which circulate Qi strongly throughout your body and your digestive system. By adding additional points to strengthen your Spleen and Stomach organs, acupuncture can balance your digestive system and improve your weight loss.
Auricular Acupuncture and Ear Seeds for De-Appetite
Auricular acupuncture, or ear acupuncture, is a micro-system of acupuncture where small needles or seeds are used to stimulate points on the ear. Auricular acupuncture has been found to be very effective for weight loss. There are several protocols used, including the five point NADA protocol that is effective for various forms of addiction, including food addiction. Other specific points can be added that enhance weight loss, such as hunger, stomach, mouth, spleen, and thyroid.
You may have ear seeds placed over some of these ear acupuncture points at the end of the treatment. This will allow you to squeeze and stimulate the Auricular acupuncture points when you experience cravings for food or in times of stress. This technique can enhance the effect of acupuncture for weight loss between acupuncture treatments.
