What is Acupuncture and how does it work?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most important treatment methods in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The use of Acupuncture dates back over 3,000 years. It works by stimulating special Acupressure points that are all part of an interconnected network that spans your entire body called the Meridian System. This stimulation helps restore the flow of energy (Qi) and blood through your body, and this helps your body absorb nutrients and remove toxins. Keeping your Meridian System clear helps you keep your body functioning properly, and a functioning body is a healthier body.
How does Acupuncture help with weight loss?
By restoring your body’s natural flow and balance, your organs function more effectively allowing your spleen and kidneys to correctly flush out toxins, and your digestive system to properly break down foods so that you can absorb more nutrition from each meal, helping you eat less.
Why is blood flow so important for weight loss?
Untreated poor blood flow can make problems people commonly face while trying to lose weight even worse, problems like:
Controlling your appetite
If your Qi and Blood isn’t flowing to your digestive system properly, you’re not going to digest as much nutrition causing you to get hungry much faster.
If your body’s natural flow is blocked you’re going to retain more food waste, water and gas resulting in bloating and swelling typically around the stomach and abdomen area.
Burning off fat
If your body isn’t circulating energy ( Qi, Yang, Blood and Yin ) and nutrients properly your metabolism will slow down stopping you from burning through any deposits of fatty tissue.
