Can acupuncture help with weight loss?

Did you know?

  • According to the Department of Health around 60% of UK adults are either overweight or obese, with an increased risk of developing health problems such as Type-2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and certain cancers.
  • The National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence advise that weight loss drugs and surgery should be a last resort, and lifestyle interventions must be the primary option for tackling obesity.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture: a safe, effective, and proven method for supporting weight loss.

How acupuncture supports weight loss:

Are you struggling to lose those last few pounds, no matter how much exercise and dieting you do?

Or do cravings and addictions sabotage your best efforts to lose weight?

Can acupuncture give you the weight loss results you’re looking for?

Acupuncture can help with weight loss by:

  • Acupuncture influences the delicate balance of hormones (chemical messengers) relating to hunger, satiety (the feeling of ‘fullness’) metabolism, cravings, and addictions.
  • I also consider wider issues influencing your health such as stress, sleep quality, and other disease conditions.
  • Ear acupuncture (or auricular acupuncture as it is also known) is particularly beneficial for dealing with cravings and addictions and can be incorporated into your treatments.

Individualised acupuncture plans to help lose weight

  1. In addition to a personalised acupuncture plan I will discuss nutrition and relaxation with you, as these are vital aspects of healthy weight loss.
  2. Acupuncture has a cumulative effect so whilst you may feel a little better after the first couple of treatments, the full benefits really become clear after several sessions.
  3. Most clients start with a series of six sessions taken weekly or bi-weekly according to your needs.

What our patients are saying

I have really enjoyed my experience and feel it has been really beneficial in kick starting a healthier journey for me.

The wider lifestyle advice struck a chord with me and I’ve embraced it fully, and it’s now just part of my day to day.

After a course of treatment for both my eyes are so much better and my weight is starting to go I could not recommend Tiziana enough she is very knowledgable and good at what she does, I’ll definitely keep going with the maintenance appointments thank you!

Nikki Wynn

A friend recommended Tiziana Bertinotti. After dietary advice and a course of Acupuncture covering 2 months together with her recommendation to consult Annie Milles regarding Chinese Herbal Medicine, I found a marked improvement in my energy levels and general well being and I have now been able to return to my regular fitness programme and am more able to keep pace with my Grandson!
