Rest assured, implanting acupuncture needles does not hurt! The points where the needles are implanted are the points where the cause of taking kilos is. Successful weight loss therefore depends on the acupuncturist’s choice of point of implantation.
ACUPUNCTURE HAS A CUT-HUNT EFFECT
On weight gain, acupuncture acts on external factors. Efficacy is achieved by acting on stress, feeling hungry or digestion.
Another fact not to neglect: acupuncture can treat the cause before the symptom. This is interesting in terms of weight gain, which occurs in many ways and is different according to each individual.
Indeed, weight gain can be related to a hormonal problem, emotional shock, depression, or stress that causes you to eat too much. Discover how to reduce stress through eating.
In all these cases, acupuncture can be of great help.
For stress especially, acupuncture helps combat it and sessions is to lower the rate of ghrelin, the hormone responsible for hunger. By being more “relaxed”, you will not feel the need to nibble or eat fatty foods.
Acupuncture is therefore part of natural appetite suppressants as well as many foods such as apple and egg whites.
ACUPUNCTURE IN SUPPLEMENT OF A HEALTHY FEED
As we have already explained above, acupuncture changes something that did not work normally. Therefore, it must be accompanied by a balanced diet and the practice of a sport.
The number of sessions depends on the number of weights you want to lose. Each treatment is individual. Each case is unique. We must know the starting weight. But also your motivation and your responsiveness to the method (after a few sessions).
Once the goal is achieved, the weight must be stabilized. A few maintenance sessions are therefore necessary to maintain this ideal weight. The pace and duration depend on each individual. It is always the acupuncturist who decides according to each case.
It is still worth remembering that healthy living (balanced diet and sport …) should not be neglected! Acupuncture will act more as an aid in acting on your hunger or mental state. If some of you think you can locate the fat on the hips by planting needles locally, know that it does not work like that.
ACUPUNCTURE IN PRACTICE
HOW IS AN ACUPUNCTURE SESSION?
The first step is to make an appointment and make an energy assessment. At the same time the doctor must know the expectations of the patient.
The only differences lie in the points of the extremities. An acupuncturist who adjusts the needle accurately and quickly, allows the patient to recognize that acupuncture does not hurt. !
If the doctor “turns” the needle on its point of impact, it is mainly to stimulate the circulation of the breath from said point of acupuncture. He adjusts the needles at each session following the patient’s reactions.
Usually, the doctor explains to the patient what he will do to him. He informs him of the number of needles he will implant. He will also talk to him about the length of the session. This lasts for most of the time, between 20 and 40 minutes. Below, efficiency may not be at the rendezvous. But more than an hour would be just as exhausting for the patient.
HOW MANY ACUPUNCTURE SESSIONS PER WEEK?
Generally, it is recommended to follow 2 sessions per week for 2 to 3 months. A minimum of 10 sessions (in total) are required to have positive results.
In any case the duration of a session varies according to each individual, his temperament and his responsiveness.
Here are the points (which correspond to these parts of the body) that are used most often in acupuncture to lose weight:
The mouth: for all those who tend to overeat
The stomach: to avoid nibbling
Kidneys: to treat fluid retention
The spleen: to solve the problems of sugar
The lungs: to face addictions to certain foods.
ACUPUNCTURE IS NOT PAINFUL: A MOMENT OF RELAXATION
An acupuncture session is most often done on a patient lying down, relaxed. To do this, in addition to acupuncture itself, silence and discretion as well as a soft light and sufficient warmth in the room would be conditions not to be neglected. The doctor can even get out of the room so that the patient is more relaxed.
The relaxation comes from itself, and sometimes the patient falls asleep.
When the acupuncturist removes the needles, redness of the skin can be seen around the point of implantation. This is an indication of too much epidermal sensitivity, which will have to be seen with the doctor.
After an acupuncture session, the patient may experience either relaxation or even fatigue. As if he had just done a healthy exercise or a long walk.
