Acupuncture is a great way to aid with weight loss. By stimulating the nervous system with the insertion of tiny needles into the dermis layer of the body, acupuncture can release beneficial biochemicals such as endorphins, enkephalins, GABA, serotonin and dopamine.
These chemicals help to regulate the body's visceral functions, such as heart rate, respiration, digestion and perspiration, and can also stimulate the hypothalamus, which helps to regulate hormones and neurochemicals essential for maintaining the body's "functional balance". As a result, cravings decrease, metabolism increases, and mood improves - all of which can lead to natural weight loss.
