Lose Weight in Palmetto
Lose Weight in Palmetto at the Longevity Wellness Acupuncture Clinic by Dr. Cynthia Clark. She will prescribe a program that is based upon your specific needs. Many clients in Palmetto that struggled to lose excess pounds find that Dr. Clark’s treatment has made a great difference helping them to lose weight safely.
Acupuncture targets specific body points or “energy pathways” by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural “feel-good” hormones. This creates a calming, relaxing effect, which counteracts the need for excessive eating brought about by increased stress, frustration or anxiety.
Several studies have shown that when acupuncture is combined with traditional methods of weight loss, patients lose more weight. In these cases, one to three acupuncture weight loss sessions can be safe and effective in helping people achieve reasonable weight loss goals.
Excessive weight gains are caused mainly by an imbalance in the body due to a malfunction of the spleen and liver organ systems. Dr. Clark will zero in on specific body areas to affect weight loss. Among these are the endocrine system and kidneys, which are addressed to treat water retention and to stimulate nerve and hormonal rebalance. The spleen and thyroid gland are also targeted to affect sugar and hormonal rebalancing. Finally, the adrenal and ovary glands are included to treat weight gain due to menopause or Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some people notice the effects of acupuncture fairly quickly and only require treatments every other week.
At the Longevity Wellness Clinic, we go through your health history, observe your symptoms and signs, ask about your stress level, emotions and take into account your absolute uniqueness as an individual. With this information, we can determine the underlying imbalances you and your body are experiencing. For the best results, treatments should be combined with a reduced calorie diet and appropriate physical exercise. The critical point to be made here is that acupuncture should be viewed as a support system not a sole modality.
