Acupuncture for weight loss
What is Acupuncture and how does it work?
Acupuncture is one the oldest and most important treatment method in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and its use dates back over 3,000 years. It works by stimulating special Acupressure points that are all part of an interconnected network that spans your entire body called the Meridian System. This stimulation helps restore the flow of energy (Qi) and blood through your body, and this helps your body absorb nutrients and remove toxins. Keeping your Meridian System clear helps you keep your body functioning properly, and a functioning body is a healthier body.
How does Acupuncture help weight loss?
By restoring your body’s natural flow and balance, your organs function more effectively allowing your spleen and kidneys to correctly flush out toxins, and your digestive system to properly breakdown foods so that you can absorb more nutrition from each meal, helping you eat less.
Why is blood flow so important for weight loss?
Untreated poor blood flow can make problems people commonly face while trying to lose weight even worse, problems like:
Controlling your appetite – If your blood isn’t flowing to your digestive system properly, you’re not going to digest as much nutrition causing you to get hungry much faster.
Feeling bloated – If your body’s natural flow is blocked you’re going to retain more food waste, water and gas resulting in bloating and swelling typically around the stomach and lower back.
Burning off fat – If your body isn’t circulating energy and nutrients properly your metabolism will slowdown stopping you from burning through any deposits of fatty tissue.
How else can Acupuncture help me?
Acupuncture can be used to target specific deficiencies within your body and help releive problems with your bowels, indigestion or other health conditions. All over the world people continue to choose Acupuncture as a natural drug-free way to restore and maintain their body’s function and help them lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Throughout my life, I have always found exams of any kind extremely stressful. Recently, when I was training to be an aerobics instructor, the thought of the practical examination filled me with dread. I had several acupuncture treatments in the run up to my exam to relieve anxiety and reduce stress. The acupuncture, herbal medicine, breathing exercises and reflexology massages made a huge difference. Although I did still suffer some nerves on the day of the exam, the overall effect was that the stress reduced significantly and I passed the exam. I cannot thank GinSen enough, they taught me to control my nerves, and without them, I am not sure I would have made it through my exam quite so easily
