hi

Acupuncture can assist with weight loss by balancing the 5 elements. If you "spleen" is out of balance then you will crave more sugar, have problems with digestion like belatedness, diarrhea etc. By using the appropriate acupuncture points it will help balance this element and weight can be restored. Treatments usually includes looking at the cause of weight gain. If for e.g. thyroid is part of the problem this needs to be addressed as well. A suggested diet plan might as be used in conjunction. Weight loss will be gradual.
