Hallo William
Some people believe it does. Most of the studies published used acupuncture in combination with traditional methods of weight loss, like dieting and exercise but the studies were not big enough to give scientific results. If done by an experienced acupuncturist, using only sterile needles, and under sterile conditions you could probably give it a try. I don't think it will work for all people.
