When a third of Americans - 65 million people - are considered obese, there is clearly something wrong on a national level. Without doubt, proper diet and exercise play a pivotal role in avoiding obesity. And both of those are deeply rooted in Chinese culture, where obesity is rarely an issue.
However, the Chinese also understand the role of acupuncture in fighting obesity. Traditional Chinese Medicine uses acupuncture to normalize your body’s inner flow, so that it’s easier and more natural for you to lose weight.
The effectiveness of acupuncture in cases of obesity has been shown well beyond China. For example, multiple studies of obese children found regular acupuncture treatments normalizing blood and serum levels, decreasing overall body mass and fatty tissue content, and increasing exercise performance abilities. Other international studies offered conclusive evidence of acupuncture lowering appetite, increasing satiety with less food, lower insulin, and lower lipid levels.
By creating a balanced system, acupuncture improves the circulation of blood and nutrients to the muscles, bones, and tissues. This helps you exercise longer, burning more fat in the process.
