According to Chinese Medicine, excessive weight gain is believed to be caused mainly by an imbalance due to a malfunction of the (TCM) spleen and liver organ systems.
When acupuncture treatment is combined with dietary advice and appropriate physical exercise, an average result of losing ≥ 0.5 kg is expected between 6-8 weeks of a weekly treatment plan.
How does acupuncture address weight loss?
Please note: acupuncture should be viewed as a weight-loss support system.
Acupuncture will help the body return to homeostasis, but you will still need to take responsibility for eating habits and physical exercise for the best outcome.
Like other therapies, acupuncture achieves optimal results when maintained regularly and consistently.
At the beginning of treatment, the frequency of treatments might range from one to two visits per week, to address your specific concerns.
In certain cases, a combination of herbs, tuina or cupping may complement the acupuncture regimen.
During your initial consultation, we'll explore your requirements and preferred treatment frequency, allowing a tailored plan suited to your needs.
