Weight management is an important aspect of ongoing health and can help prevent the development of various diseases and conditions. Though weight management may be challenging as we age, acupuncture can give your body and mind the additional support to help you reach your healthy weight goals and maintain them. Acupuncture is used to help weight management by regulating hormones, improving digestion, reducing inflammation, reducing water retention, improving metabolism, regulating appetite, diminishing stress eating and improving overall mood. Furthermore, acupuncture has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for obesity via neuroendocrine regulation.
