Can Acupuncture Help You Lose Weight?

What does Acupuncture Help With?

  • Acupuncture supports the body in order to reduce cravings

  • Acupuncture reduces irritability, restlessness and body aches you may encounter while changing your lifestyle and losing weight

How Does Acupuncture Work for Weight Loss?

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Food Therapy are used together to support weight loss

  • Acupuncture accesses neuro-pathways to the brain to help ease discomfort during detox

  • Acupuncture increases endorphins (feel-good hormones)

This reduces cravings


  • Acupuncture reduces stress and thus, stress-induced eating


  • Acupuncture relaxes the mind and brings balance to the body
