How it works
To pinpoint the Qi for effective weight control, we will focus on 4 acupuncture points on the ear:
1. The hunger point
2. Shen Men point
3. Stomach point, and
4. 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.Needles are left at these points for about 20-30minutes, and replaced with "ear seeds" at the end of the session so that patients can wear home. These "ear seeds" should be massaged periodically to help with difficult-to-control urges.
Acupuncture for weight loss is best achieved with 10 treatments delivered over a few weeks.
Acupuncture should be used alongside a comprehensive weight-loss plan
