Acupuncture for Weight Loss

Are you trying to lose weight? AOMA Acupuncture Clinics offer acupuncture for weight loss. Being “overweight” or “obese” is defined as having an abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. Maintaining a healthy weight can help control cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar. It might also help prevent weight-related conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and some cancers.


A combination of traditional Chinese medicine, making healthy lifestyle choices, and evaluating stress patterns can improve a patient’s chances of successful weight loss. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can also affect the digestive and hormonal systems to help suppress appetite, boost metabolism, and re-balance the organ systems that govern digestion and metabolism. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, excessive weight gain can be caused by imbalances in the Spleen and Liver organ systems, which acupuncture works to correct. It also causes the release of endorphins which relax the patient, making it easier to cope with stress. Auricular acupuncture, needling points on the ear, can also help control food cravings. It has been used successfully to help cigarette smokers and heroin addicts kick their drug habits; when properly administered, this technique may also help some patients lose weight.


Acupuncture, the most well-known traditional Chinese medical procedure, is the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture triggers spontaneous healing reactions in the body, and scientific studies have proven its efficacy for treating inflammation, pain, depression, and a host of other disorders.
