A study published in The International Journal of Neuroscience concluded that acupuncture treatments for weight loss showed significant reductions in the subjects' body weights. Individuals' metabolism increased, their apetites were suppressed, their intestinal mobility improved, and it mobilized the body's energy depots. A 2003 study published in The Journal of Medical Acupuncture found that participants receiving acupuncture lost more than three times more weight than the control group. In a study conducted by the University of Adelaide in Australia, 95% of the participants receiving electro-stimulation on acupuncture points reported appetite suppression. The results showed that the acupuncture group was more likely to experience a reduced appetite and to lose weight than the control group.
Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) address both, physiological and psychological, aspects of weight loss. A comprehensive therapy for weight issues rooted in TCM promotes better digestion, smooths emotions, reduces appetite, improves metabolism, and eliminates food cravings.
