Natural & Holistic Weight Loss Modalities

Acupuncture

Acupuncture Long IslandPeople seeking to address weight concerns are turning to acupuncture as a natural way to approach weight loss.

Based on your unique symptoms, your acupuncturist will choose to concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs. For example, restoring balance to the flow of Qi in the stomach can help promote good digestion and suppress an overactive appetite. Emotional issues such as anxiety and stress, both of which can lead to overeating, can be addressed by balancing the liver.

Auriculotherapy

auriculotherapy - Holistic Weight Loss ModalitiesAuriculotherapy, also called auricular therapy, is a technique of using points on the external ear to treat cravings & food addictions, stress, sleep deprivation, detox, and more.

The stimulation of these acupuncture points can be done manually, with an acupuncture needle, a laser, magnets or ear seeds. Regardless of the means of stimulation, auricular acupuncture can be a very powerful addition to regular acupuncture treatments.

Laser Acupuncture

Low-power laser acupuncture is one of the best options because it is fast, effective, and completely painless. Laser acupuncture uses low-power laser light at specific wavelengths to stimulate acupuncture points and bring about effects similar to traditional needle acupuncture, but without the pain of needles.

Once secured, ear seeds stimulate the points through light pressure. Due to the lack of side effects of treating illness with ear seeds, it can be an excellent choice for patients of all ages. Similar to acupuncture, ear seeds not only treat certain conditions, but they also balance energy and promote an overall sense of well-being.

Massage Therapy

Massage is a very effective technique for relieving pain. How does it work? There are number of ways massage may help in relieving pain: Massage confuses the body’s pain signals. Rubbing may interfere with pain signals’ pathways to your brain, a process called the “gate control theory,” according to experts. Pain impulses run toward the spinal cord and then up the cord and into the brain. It’s only when they reach the brain that these impulses, are perceived as pain. When you rub, it sends other impulses along the same nerves. When all these impulses try to reach the brain through nerves, the nerves get clogged like a highway during morning rush hour. The result? Most of them won’t reach the brain. And if the pain signals does not reach the brain, you won’t feel pain. Thus, massage works by ‘closing the gate’ that pain impulses have to pass through.
