Weight loss with acupuncture
Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for more than 2,000 years. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a field of acupuncture used earlier by the Chinese Empress and Emperor’s concubines in Sung Dynasty (960AD – 1270AD). It promotes not only cosmetic benefits but also the health of the patient as a whole.
Cosmetic acupuncture is somewhat a non-invasive procedure and has really impressive results – improving your health as well as treating your beauty demands. Healthy ‘side effects’ include better quality sleep, less anxiety and good digestion – critical factors in weight loss.

In 1998, a research of the University of Adelaide pointed that 95% of the participants receiving electro-stimulation on acupuncture points reported appetite suppression. The acupuncture group was more likely to experience a reduced appetite and to lose weight than the control group.
How does acupuncture works in weight loss?
Acupuncture decreases appetite and food intake reducing the calorie consumption. In addition to this, it increases the metabolic rate of the body and stimulates the release of endorphins, a hormone that helps to reduce the body fat and insulin levels. Endorphins also have a relaxing effect, decreasing stress and anxiety levels.
