Weight Loss & Acupunctur​​e?!

Did you know that Acupuncture can help with weight loss? Acupuncture is more than just pricking someone with a needle. Our bodies work in strange ways that cannot be explained through simple science. Depending on the site of acupuncture, it can bring many beneficial & therapeutic effects. 

For example, there are points on the body when triggered, releases heat beneficial for those with fevers or a point combination that can help with constipation or dysmenorrhea (aka painful menstruation). 

Our ears are used for more than just listening, you can also treat the entire body by stimulating specific points on the ear. The ear houses points that can stimulate the parts of the body, the nervous system and organs. 

A randomized study conducted in 2013 showed that a treatment regime that consisted using ear acupuncture points for 8 weeks showed reduction in body mass index. 

Heechan will also be using different kinds of diagnostic methods to identify the root of the problem and guide you through recommendations in the form of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
