We're sure you've told yourself "I want to lose weight" which is why we're here to help! The ancient practice of acupuncture can help to heal a lot of ailments. Acupuncture is when fine needles are barely inserted in the skin along strategic points on the body. This can help restore balance to the flow of energy along rivers of Qi (pronounced chee).

The reasoning behind using acupuncture for gaining control of your weight is based on the premise that weight gain could be the result of a disturbed energy flow to and from the regulating center of the brain, called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is the body's dispatch center that regulates hormones and neurochemicals that help control body temperature, circadian rhythm, thirst and hunger.

Research measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight control found that treatments increased ghrelin, a hormone that control meal initiation and decreased leptin, the hormone that regulates fat storage and metabolism.
