In recent months, we have received many phone calls about using acupuncture to lose weight.

In an ideal world, patients would come for full body acupuncture 2-3 times a week for 3 months to help them rebalance their bodies’ metabolism to lose weight and keep weight off.  However, if money and time is an issue, we recommend that patients use ear needles.

Ear needles are put in place at specific acupuncture points on the shell and lobe of the ears to decrease cravings and increase the body’s production of norepinephrine, a hormone that could help your body burn more calories.

Because these needles can be left on the ear for up to a week, they provide long lasting appetite control and are a fraction of the cost of full body acupuncture.
