Weight loss is achieved by stimulating specific acupoint to modulate the meridian system, which, in turn, suppresses appetite. In this way, patient feels satiated with less food. The meridian system also regulates metabolism and promotes calorie burning to remove excessive fat and edema. In addition, acupuncture can normalize visceral function and unblock meridian in various parts of the body, as a result it is effective in localized weight loss.

Besides weight loss, World Health Organization (WHO) also recognized acupuncture’s therapeutic effects for 63 widely varying conditions, including pain syndromes, stroke, hypertension and rheumatic diseases. Its therapeutic effects are achieved by stimulating specific acupoints with acupuncture needles.

TuiNa combines massage, trigger point, and other manual techniques to stimulate acupoints, meridian, muscles and/or nerves, in order to unblock the flow of Qi (vital energy), improve circulation, regulate visceral function and boost immune system. TuiNa for weight loss common focuses on the abdominal region to improve circulation and eliminate toxins.
