Lose Weight

"Overweight" and "Obesity" refer to body weight that is greater than what is considered healthy for a certain height. Millions of Americans and people worldwide are overweight or obese. Also, beginning overweight or obese will puts people at risk for many health problems. For example, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and gallstones etc.

We apply acupuncture, ancestral traditional Chinese herbal formula combined with infrared lamp as natural and side-effect-free treatment to help our patients lose weight, and they are normally able to lose 2-3 lbs. per week. 

How acupuncture promotes weight loss:


  • Increases metabolism: Auricular (ear) acupuncture has been shown to temporarily increase basal metabolic rate and suppresses appetite via effects on the autonomic nervous system.

  • Improves insulin resistance: There is some data supporting acupuncture’s effectiveness on addressing a condition called insulin resistance, which is associated with metabolic syndrome. This is done by altering activity of the sympathetic nervous system and possibly correcting the insulin signal defect.

  • Decreases abdominal fat: An MRI study demonstrated a decrease in abdominal fat storage after acupuncture treatments.

  • Appetite suppression: In the rat model, electro-acupuncture influenced the hypothalamus and obesity-related hormones to promote appetite suppression.
