Acupuncture for weight loss can be very effective for shedding weight gained by overeating. Acupuncture is an ancient form of treatment in which needles are used to stimulate the release of hormones from endocrine glands such as the pituitary gland. The hormones released, also known as endorphins, make you feel good. Acupuncture helps you to stop overeating, reduces stress and treats any digestive problems that could be the cause of weight gain.


However, acupuncture is an ADJUNCT therapy. It is not a wonder cure in the treatment of weight control. But, acupuncture is effective in making it easier to lose and maintain that loss if the patient is willing to change their lifestyle.


It’s important for the acupuncturist to ascertain the state of your overall health before starting treatment. Most acupuncturists examine the patient’s tongue and check the pulse rate. This, together with your known eating habits, can help the acupuncturist decide where the needles should be injected in the body.
