Consultation and Diagnosis
The first step is to understand the cause of weight gain. If you have sluggish digestion or hormonal imbalance it could not only affect your ability to loose weight effectively but can affect your ability to keep it off. Diagnosis will take a range of lifestyle factors into account and will consist of a full tongue and pulse assessment. Our practitioner will advise you on the best treatment plan particular to your individual circumstances. We offer a Free Consultation and it should take no longer than about 15 minutes.
Treatments; acupuncture. acupressure, cupping, moxibustion
Acupuncture and acupressure are the main form of treatments offered for weight loss in our clinics. TCM usually focuses on three main areas, the kidney, the spleen and the liver meridians. The kidney meridian relates to the endocrine system and facilitates re-balancing hormone levels and reduction of water retention. The spleen is treated to regulate sugar metabolism and the liver meridian is targeted to reduce stress and the effects of stress, as stress can lead to depleted hormone levels that are related to metabolism in the body The cause of weight gain, the length of time you have been overweight and a number of other factors will determine how many sessions of acupuncture our practitioner will recommend.
We will incorporate some deep breathing techniques and some gentle exercises to compliment your treatment. The techniques we use will help to utilise energy channels (meridians) in the body to stimulate relaxation and digestion. They are very easy exercises based on the Tao and Qi Gong and will naturally assist the body by improving circulation, kick starting stagnant energy, building core strength and returning the body to balance.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and food intake go hand in hand. Hippocrates famous quote, 'let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’ is prevalent in Chinese medicine practices. The best diet for weight loss consists of eating simple foods, those that are easy to digest and are high in nutrients. We will give advice on which foods may be beneficial to you and which to avoid based on each individuals particular diagnosis.
Auricular acupuncture has gained acceptance in the last number of years after a number of studies showed weight loss following auricular therapy. The ear is one of the densest areas of our body for nerve endings that are linked throughout the body. It is one of the various micro-systems of the body which contains all points relating to all major organs and body parts. Before leaving our clinics our practitioners will place small seeds into specific acupuncture points on your ear. Pressing these points at particular times throughout the day can help curb cravings, aid digestion, and reduce hunger.
Chinese Herbs are very effective and can work in numerous ways to aid weight loss including, increasing metabolism, stimulating the digestive system and fat elimination. They are most often prescribed as an accompaniment to treatment because the Chinese medicine practitioner will know which herb will be most effective in relation to your particular condition. We also sell specific blends of Chinese tea and make our own weight loss teas in our clinics using dried herbs. All our herbs are completely natural with no chemical constituents. For more information about our herbs visit our Herbal Remedies page.
Our weight loss treatments are suitable for all men and women. Whether you are carrying a lot of extra weight, a small amount or have weight gain without obvious cause, acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help.
The best thing to do is avail of our Free Consultation and discuss things with one of our practitioners. There is no obligation to follow through with treatment after the consultation. Because acupuncture and TCM aim to treat the cause of a problem the amount of sessions needed will vary from person to person. Each acupuncture and/or acupressure treatment (these are often given together) will include exercise and diet advice, and auricular therapy. Herbs are highly recommended as part of treatment because of their effectiveness and are charged separately.
Free consultation in all our clinics.
