Acupuncture has a history that goes back thousands of years, but it only began rising in popularity here in the United States in the last twenty years. At first, people primarily sought out acupuncture treatments to relieve pain, but now people flock to acupuncturists for assistance with many ailments. There’s acupuncture and weight loss successes, acupuncture to reduce cravings and addiction, and acupuncture to balance the nervous system and emotions. How does acupuncture work to accomplish healthier goals? Let us explain.


How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture works to correct the source issues that result in food cravings and addiction! It is not a band-aid approach that solves the problem temporarily, but rather is a program of health enhancement that gets to the core issues behind why you gained weight and lost your natural vitality in the first place.

Acupuncture works under the principles of Chinese Medicine, which say that you have:

       * 14 energy channels or meridians that transverse the body

       * Your own unique balance of yin and yang energies

       * Imbalances that can disrupt the relationships between organ systems 

Through the use of acupuncture needles at key points on your arms, legs, torso, and ears, your body is tuned to resonate at the frequency of health and wellness! Acupuncture points are literally the points of least resistance – electrically that is! They are the places on the body that, when stimulated, get past the electrical barrier of the body and allow changes to be incorporated into the electromagnetic circuitry of the system – in other words – all the way to the cellular level!


The Reason Behind This Acupuncture And Weight Loss Trend

Food cravings and addictions, when viewed via the lens of Chinese Medicine, are the consequence of imbalances in the energy of the Liver and Spleen. In the terminology of Chinese Medicine, we would say that the Wood element (Liver) is attacking the Earth element (Spleen). To correct this imbalance the Liver needs to be regulated and the Spleen strengthened. Specific acupuncture points assist to calm the Liver energy and relieve anxiety and others strengthen the Spleen to improve digestion and reduce cravings. When the Liver and Spleen are in balance with each other weight loss is easier to achieve and maintain.
