Lose inches with our effective Acupuncture Treatment Plan


Physicians’ Choice Acupuncture offers a comprehensive program, acupuncture, along with the appropriate dietary changes and exercise is the answer. Regardless of what you may have heard, acupuncture is not magic, you don't receive merely receive treatment and watch the excess fat fall off. The patient has to make the commitment to actively participate in a program. That individual must have the desire to learn how to select the appropriate foods and to avoid foods which are not conducive to their weight loss goals. We have worked with thousands of individuals over the years, as a result, we have learned, most people do not understand how to prepare their meals. It is the preparation that determines whether or not it should be included in your program. An excellent example is chicken, fried with the skin on and breaded, is not acceptable, roasted skinless, is an excellent choice. The same is true with a wide variety of foods, participants in our program learn how to make the wise choice.

The acupuncture procedure provides several benefits. Acupoints are selected to tonify the digestive system, eliminate carvings, regulate the appetite and support water metabolism. Another very important issue is the effect the program has on mental activity. A common cause for eating disorders is process occurring in the mind. The phrase "comfort food" describes it best. And it is the comfort food that is detrimental not only physically, but mentally. By attempting to comfort yourself you have actually destroyed the discipline needed to achieve your weight loss goals. In fact, once you realize what you’ve done, you feel worse than you did before. Each time you surrender to that urge, you have stalled the momentum toward you goal.

Acupuncture treatment entails the insertion of very fine (38 gauge) sterile needles into select area on the ear and body. As a result, the brain releases endorphins, serotonin and other neurotransmitters producing a natural sense of well being, providing the focus and mental clarity necessary to avoid those times to veer off course. Additional benefits of the chemicals released during treatment aid in digestion, assimilation and elimination. This includes the breakdown of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. More efficient absorption of nutrients results in a healthier, leaner body. Other benefits include improved control over the appetite, cravings and attachments to particular foods.
Dietary guidelines are established, to educate the patient on the proper preparation of foods they consume, as well as the types of foods the must avoid. Patients disciplined enough to follow the program enjoy a high rate of success.
