Acupuncture is just for pain management right? No!
How does Acupuncture help you lose weight?
- Prevents food cravings
- Suppresses appetite
- Increases metabolism
- Burns fat
Recent studies have shown that when acupuncture is combined with traditional methods of weight loss (reduced calorie diet and appropriate physical exercise.), patients lose more weight. Acupuncture helps give you an extra boost along the way!
Needles act to stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural "feel good" hormones. This can create a calming, relaxing effect, which counteracts the need for excessive eating brought about by increased stress, frustration or anxiety.
