WEIGHT CONTROL


Many "weight loss" diets require you to sacrifice physical comfort, make you feel constantly hungry and emotionally deprive you by not allowing you to enjoy the foods you love.

The result is often only temporary weight loss, as most of us soon resume our old eating and activity patterns.

There is no such thing as a "magic bullet" in the fight against obesity, aside from the surgical or pharmaceutical alternative with its side effects and temporary relief.

As with any legitimate, non-drug weight control remedy, acupuncture is a program that supports your commitment and self-discipline.

Regular acupuncture treatments can help curb food cravings, just as it has been proven to help cravings for other addictive substances like tobacco and alcohol. Support from acupuncture helps to eliminate cravings and increases the will power to overcome them.

We offer 12 sessions:
