Acupuncture for Weight Loss

Data from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) indicates that approximately 78.6 million adults (34.9%) are clinically obese. In my clinic I can do acupuncture for weight loss which can help people achieve and maintain the weight loss goals by solving the underlying physical and mental causes. We know that acupuncture can help the body release endorphins. Endorphins affect the digestive and hormonal systems, so acupuncture can help metabolism rebalance. Also acupuncture can deal with stress which can trigger overeating. It treats the underlying body conditions to restore the body’s balance.

There were many studies supports the use of acupuncture in weight loss. For example, a study by Xu et al. (2013) recruited 45 women diagnosed with simple obesity. The women were randomly divided into 3 groups – 2 groups of an acupuncture treatment (abdominal/body) and 1 of a control. After treatment, the BMIs of the women receiving acupuncture were significantly reduced.

The frequency of treatments necessary depends on the patient’s goal for losing weight. The ideal frequency is three treatments every week for 4 to 8 weeks. But for other patients who cannot come so frequently, at least one treatment every week until they reach their goal is appropriate.

I have the experience of treating weight loss in a holistic manner. Call 832-866-2501 to start the new journey.

There are many benefits for weight loss. Here is one example for prediabetes.

Prediabetes is the condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be classified as diabetes, sometimes referred to as impaired glucose tolerance (ICG) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG). Prediabetics are at greater risk for heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, vision problems, nerve damage and high blood pressure. 10% of them will convert to type 2 diabetes annually.The good news is that prediabetes could be revisable, according to the research funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Interventions to reduce diabetes risk should primarily target weight reduction!  (source:
