According to the theory of Chinese medicine, weight gain is caused by an imbalance and the accumulation of fat due to excess or deficiency (if your level of energy is deficient, your body may not be able to get rid of excessive fat easily). We offer acupuncture treatment for weight loss, the aim is to stimulate certain areas of the body to remove the excess or nourish the deficiency. You should consult your treating practitioner about how acupuncture may be able to help you.
What to expect
Each session takes about 1 hour, which will involve an assessment of your current health and weight history. The major modality we use is acupuncture, other modalities like cupping and ear acupressure may be used to support the treatment. Herbal medicine may also be recommended, however, it all depends on the diagnosis after the initial consultation and discussion with you.
How many sessions will I need?
A course of treatment is usually 4 to 8 weeks. However, we do not recommend large reductions of weight in the short term rather we support a steady reduction in weight and help you maintain the weight loss. A dietitian can also provide additional advice about diet and strategies to maintain weight loss.
