Acupuncture demonstrates clinical efficacy for the treatment of obesity

Obesity is a chronic disease brought on by the confluence of genetic, lifestyle, environmental and dietary variables. It presents as an increase in the amount of body fat stored. In the last decades, there has been a dramatic rise in the obesity rates of children, adolescents and adults. 

Many people struggle to manage their weight solely through an increase in physical activity and dietary changes. While there are pharmaceutical treatments for obesity, their success is limited by the side effects that they also bring. Alternatively, acupuncture is a relatively affordable, easy and safe treatment for obesity that has been used clinically in China and other countries. 


Release Endorphins

With diet changes, many people experience cravings, which can lead to binge eating. Cravings in the body are often due to a lack of endorphins. Acupuncture can help to balance out the cravings by helping the body to release endorphins.


Support Digestion

Acupuncture can support the body to generate an efficient digestive process.


Reduce Stress

An increase in the “stress hormone” cortisol can alter the metabolism. Through the release of endorphins, the “stress hormone” can also be neutralized.


Yes, it is very safe. Acupuncturists use individually wrapped, single-use, sterile needles for each treatment.

Acupuncture can cause minor bruising and tenderness around where the needles are inserted. This bruising will go away within a couple of days after your treatment.
