Weight loss and acupuncture Success Can Be Yours!

The Weight Release & Acupuncture Connection

It is a fact that over 30% of American adults meet the criteria for obesity.  Along with the increasing weight problem, many quick-fix weight loss plans have popped up on the internet and other social media.  This has lead to much confusion. Are any of these programs healthy and effective?  What will work for me? The search for health can feel overwhelming.  It is no wonder many give up before they even get started!

A NATURAL PATH TO WEIGHT RELEASE. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offer a safe, natural and effective approach to the release of extra weight, by improving health and the body’s ability to regulate weight.  What’s different about Balancing Point Acupuncture and the TCM system for weight loss? :

1) Every person is unique and has specific nutritional requirements.  Stressors like emotional health, excessive work, social activities, exposure to allergens, poor nutritional choices, and physical trauma are just a few of the circumstances that may be factors complicating ideal body weight. The treatment plan for improving your metabolism will be specific to you.

2) The root cause of the problem is addressed, so instead of just alleviating symptoms, Qi (CHEE), the life energy of the entire body benefits.  What this means is, after consistent Acupuncture, you should experience overall health improvement.  At Balancing Point Acupuncture we always use a comprehensive diagnostic physical exam and detailed health history to discover the “root” cause(s) of your problems, which means that other concerns may also be addressed.

3) Several techniques may be used to help you: Acupuncture uses fine, sterile needles, gently applied to very energetic points of the body.  The points are selected to target your specific needs and assist your body to optimize physiological functions. Auricular (ear) acupuncture, a very powerful micro-system, is a relaxing form of treatment and beneficial to the entire body.  TCM Nutrition is based on your body’s innate ability to restore its constitutional balance.  We design a customized program to optimally balance your Qi, increasing your energy and releasing fat, while building lean muscle. Only at Balancing Point Acupuncture do we offer this effective, holistic system in conjunction with the finest organic, all-natural nutritional products from Isagenix Isagenix offers only the finest ingredients and is the new standard for modern research and nutrition.  Your customized nutritional program will be carefully designed to give you optimized results and health, including simple and effective maintenance.  The Isagenix meal replacement systems are available for purchase, exclusively through our acupuncturist, at an additional cost. Tuina, a form of Asian bodywork, feels great and complements acupuncture. TCM Body Movement is encouraged in the forms of Tai Chi and Qi Gong.  We have instructional information to get you moving and improve your Qi. Herbal formulas may be recommended to improve recovery time and overall effect but most importantly, to expedite renewed balance of Qi.  We do what it takes to help you feel better, with no hidden fees.  Herbal formulas are available for purchase, if indicated.

4) We work with you as a team to help you reach your goals.  That’s right, now you have guidance and support in making choices that really make a difference in how you feel.  At Balancing Point Acupuncture we believe that through discussion, teaching tools, counseling, and targeted information, we offer supportive services unique to our acupuncture clinic.  Our acupuncturist takes the time to listen and work with you. Your health is a precious investment in your future and we honor your commitment, by our commitment to you.

OUR ACUPUNCTURIST — USES a holistic approach to nutrition, weight loss goals and overall wellness. It is important to understand that Acupuncture is not a “quick fix”.  Your constitution and health will affect weight loss and other changes. Whether only a few visits for acute issues, or several visits for more complicated or chronic problems, your acupuncturist will create a treatment protocol that will maximize your healing potential.  What are you waiting for?  Celebrate your success and finally reach your goals now with acupuncture!  After all, the point is health… your health!
