Everything You Need to Know About Acupuncture and Weight Loss
By Kristina Kawas May 12,2012
Acupuncture has been persisting as a treatment for weight loss, especially in Western countries. However, it’s important to understand that acupuncture alone will not magically help you shed pounds. Acupuncture reduces levels of anger, depression, and anxiety, so in turn you relax and collect your emotions. It’s this increase in self-control that acupuncture offers that may help control eating habits. Additionally, it can aid in suppressing the appetite. While acupuncture is meant to serve as a support system and extra push for those who are trying to lose weight, not as a means to an end; people who used acupuncture in this way stated that it did make their struggle to lose weight easier! So if you’re looking for a little boost to help you along, give acupuncture a shot (pun totally intended).
