Acupuncture for Weight Loss

acupuncture for weight lossAre 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? Acupuncture is a safe and effective approach that can support your body with weight loss and help you break those negative cycles of cravings and addictive habits.

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.

How does acupuncture support weight loss?

Acupuncture influences the delicate balance of hormones (chemical messengers) relating to hunger, satiety (the feeling of ‘fullness’) metabolism, cravings, and addictions. As a holistic acupuncturist I also consider wider issues influencing your health such as stress, sleep quality, and other disease conditions.

For example, if you have an underactive thyroid and are experiencing ongoing stress, these factors will be stopping you losing weight. I can address these issues with acupuncture and support your entire system to rebalance.

To further complement the acupuncture, I will discuss nutrition and relaxation with you, as these are vital aspects of healthy weight loss.
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.

What my clients are saying about acupuncture for weight loss…

I was feeling very stuck in my life and weighed down by menopause and weight gain. Tiziana’s treatments had a profound effect, way beyond my expectations. I feel like my old self again, re-energised, more balanced and with a new vigour for life.

– Amanda McKee

First time I’ve had acupuncture. I felt very comfortable with Tiziana and am now a total convert! I will be continuing to maintain my treatment with York Traditional Acupuncture.

– Kirsty

I have been a patient of Tiziana’s for some years now. She has successfully treated me for various problems and I am now at the stage of receiving ‘maintainance’ every few weeks to continue this progress. Tiziana is at all times professional and has a friendly and cheerful disposition. She keeps detailed records and is extremely thorough in her approach and practice. I feel most fortunate to have found such a good practitioner.
