How does acupuncture help?
It stimulates the breakdown of fat.
It release endorphins into the blood stream. Endorphins relax you, and reduce your stress, so you have less appetite, and you can better resist the urge to eat.
It improves your metabolic rate/digestion. Sometimes your organs work too fast, but if you are obese they work too slow. Acupuncture is good at rebalancing your organism.
It lowers cholesterol.
It keeps your blood sugar level stable, thus reducing the need to eat a lot of sweet food.
It increases perseverance and willpower.
It gives you more energy, and so, because you feel fitter and happier, you find it easier to achieve the goals you have set yourself so reach your target weight.
It stimulates your digestive fire. Since it brings balance to all your body’s systems, your digestion will function better, which is essential for a healthy body.
In addition, we will look at your nutritional habits, how active you are and the state of your emotional life. According to Chinese Medicine, certain foods are healthy for one person but not for another, depending on their constitution. So we will conduct an extensive survey to decide on your type and the treatment you need.
Unlike many “miracle drugs”, acupuncture is totally safe, easy to apply and does not have side-effects. It is certainly worth trying. Moreover, you will be given personal advice, which will increase your chances of success compared with general treatments that work for everyone.
