Acupuncture and Weight Loss
The ancient practice of acupuncture helps to
heal a host of ailments, but many people don’t know it can also help with
weight loss. When fine needles are barely inserted into the skin along
strategic points on the body it can restore balance to the flow of energy along
rivers of Qi (pronounced chee), or life force.
Highlights of Acupuncture
To pinpoint the Qi for effective weight
control, acupuncturists take aim at 4 acupuncture points on the ear - the
hunger point, Shen Men point, stomach point, and endocrine point. A few tiny
sterilized needles are inserted along these invisible channels to decrease the
"heat" generated along these meridians and to stimulate centers that
trigger the release of neurochemicals and hormones.
During some courses of treatment, the needles are covered with tape so that they can be left in place for a few days. Patients later remove them at home or during follow-up visits to the acupuncturist. Some practitioners may also use "ear seeds" that patients wear home that can be massaged periodically to help with difficult-to-control urges.
