How can weight loss help improve my health and wellness?

Extensive research shows direct links between being overweight or obese and developing serious health issues. Conditions linked to excess weight include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Depression
  • Dementia

These are just a few of the health issues you face when you carry a significant volume of extra weight. Losing even a small amount of weight can reduce your risk of these and other health problems.

Can acupuncture help me reach my weight loss goals?

Acupuncture uses thin, sterile needles to promote changes in your neurological function. Commonly used in pain management, fertility care, and stress management, this treatment can also help you navigate your weight loss journey.

Research also suggests that acupressure, a hands-on therapy that manipulates your soft tissues, can be effective in improving weight loss. Acupressure goes beyond the benefits of traditional massage to create therapeutic results in addition to deep relaxation.

Studies have focused on acupuncture and acupressure in improving insulin sensitivity, controlling hunger, and reducing anxiety. All of these improvements can help you move forward in weight loss.

Of course, losing weight also requires closely examining your diet to find ways to incorporate healthy foods into your meal planning. Increasing exercise is also essential; even something as simple as adding a daily walk to your routine can be beneficial.

How long does it take to see results after starting weight loss treatment?

Many people begin to lose excess weight immediately after beginning a weight loss program. These early successes can motivate you to stay on your path and set new goals.

For others, weight loss can start slowly. Your improvements can accelerate over time, so be patient and stick with your program. Acupuncture and acupressure can help you feel calm and relaxed throughout the process and can also help address post-workout discomfort.
