Earmark Of Acupuncture
To pinpoint the Qi for effective weight control, acupunctrist take aim at 4 acupuncture points on the ear:full.
- the hunger point
- the Shen Men point
- the stomach point
- the endocrine point
A few tiny sterilized needles are inserted along these invisible channels to decrease the "heat" generated along these meridians and to stimulate centers that trigger the release of neurochemicals and hormones.
During some courses of treatment, the needles are covered with tape so that they can be left in place for a few days. Patients later remove them at home or during follow-up visits to the acupuncturist. Some practitioners may also use "ear seeds" that patient wears home that can me massaged periodically to help with difficult-to-control urges.
We look forward to your visit to our office for a free consultation!
