Acupuncture and electroacupuncture techniques to treat obesity are considered complementary to diet and exercise in weight loss efforts.

Recent research indicates that acupuncture coupled with diet is a more effective treatment than diet alone.

Body acupuncture and ear acupuncture are two special techniques that are applied and work as follows:

  • They suppress the appetite, so that the person can more easily reduce the amount of food.
  • They reduce the satiety time and allow us to follow a stricter dietary regime
  • They reduce the desire for sweets
  • They have anxiolytic and calming effects.
