Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese medicine system that has proven its effectiveness in treating a wide range of health conditions ranging from pain, allergies, depression, anxiety, sciatica, autoimmune diseases and infertility. It is based on the fundamental belief that a person is healthy as long as 'qi' or life energy flows freely through a network of channels throughout the body. Any blockages in this flow manifests as illnesses and health issues.
How it Works
For treatment, acupuncturists insert very fine needles at specific points of the body to stimulate nerves and energy centers that lead to clearing of any energy flow blockage. In case of acupuncture and weight loss, practitioners target the mouth, spleen, stomach, thyroid, ears and endocrine glands – the idea being to regulate hormones, suppress appetite, stimulate metabolism and aid better absorption of nutrients. When a person is stressed or anxious, he or she may resort to overeating. Acupuncture can be used to trigger release of endorphins and serotonin that help in reducing stress, thus taking way the need to overeat.
