Weight Loss

Weight Loss

If you struggle with your weight, you’re not alone. In fact, more than 30% of all Australian adults meet the criteria for being obese. Maintaining a healthy weight can help control cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar. It might also help prevent weight-related diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers. At Acurepoint Health Clinic, our comprehensive weight loss program helps you lose weight quickly and naturally while improving your overall health and well-being using a variety of tools and options.

The Theory Behind Weight Loss Acupuncture

Acupuncture can assist with weight loss by curbing appetite, reducing cravings, increasing metabolism, improving digestion, regulating obesity-related hormones and enhancing the way nutrients are used.  Acupuncture needles inserted into specific points on the body release endorphins.  These have a calming and relaxing effect, making it easier to deal with stress, frustration, and anxiety that can often trigger overeating and binge on fattening foods.  Acupuncture can often help to remove stress from the body which is often the underlying root cause of imbalances in the digestive system and metabolism.

Weight Loss Program

Our Weight Loss Program targets the real issues causing weight gain, based on the principles of Chinese dietary therapy, Western nutrition and provides a structured education pathway to emotional and physical wellbeing. This program is also ideal for people who has the sedentary lifestyle.

During your first visit, your acupuncturist will take an extensive health history and perform various exams. At the completion of your first visit, your acupuncturist will provide you with a comprehensive diagnosis and an explanation of your treatment plan. Your treatments will focus on correcting any underlying imbalances in your body, and will also help to support you in reaching your weight loss goals.

The basic weight loss program runs in an 8-week cycle.  However, the number of acupuncture treatments recommended depends on the individual conditions and weight loss goals. Supplements/ herbal medicine may also be prescribed by the acupuncturist to help to detoxify your body. After a cycle has been completed then we will re-asses the weight loss goals and progress.
