Auricular acupuncture was first used in France in 1956 by Dr. Paul Nogier. he started mapping the ear, pinpointing the spots that correlate to various organs or systems in the body.
Acupuncture is effective in making it easier to lose and maintain that loss if the patient is willing to change their lifestyle. The exact mechanism by which acupuncture works is unknown but we know that acupuncture needles inserted into specific points on the body and in the ear release endorphins which have a calming and relaxing effect that makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating and bingeing on fattening foods. Also endorphins affect the digestive and hormonal systems so acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems that are running too fast- or in this case too slow.
Many of the points from both ear acupuncture systems that are important for weight loss treatments are
Stomach – for the person who eats even after they’re full or who’s constantly nibbling
Hungry – for general appetite control
Lung – for food addicts, and people who love chocolate, sweets
Shenmen – a calming point, for the psychology overlay for anxiety, anger, frustration, insecurity
Endocrine – for water retention that’s responsible for some of the weight gain
Adrenal and Ovary – if weight gain is due to menopause or P.M.S.
Spleen – for sugar imbalances and hormonal disturbances
Kidney – for water retention, and nervous system and hormonal imbalances
Thyroid – for slow metabolism.
The practitioner chooses two or more of these points for each treatment depending upon the patient’s problem and personality profile regarding overeating.
Also, Keep in mind that you want to develop lifestyle habits that will help you maintain your weight in a healthy range. A short-term “diet” that you “go on” and then “go off” is not the answer to long-term weight management.
Healthy habits may help you lose weight.
Make healthy food choices. Half of your plate should be fruits and veggies.
Eat small portions. Use a smaller plate, weigh portions on a scale, or check the Nutrition Facts label for details about serving sizes
Build exercise into your daily life.Garden, go for family walks, play a pickup game of sports, start a dance club with your friends, swim, take the stairs, or walk to the grocery store or work
Combined, these habits may be a safe, healthy way to lose weight and keep it off.
- Lack of exercises or activities. Recently people don’t have time to exercise because of long work hours and time spent commuting.
- Oversized food portions. Americans are exposed to huge food portions in restaurants, fast food places. Eating large portions means too much energy IN. Over time, this will cause gain weight if it isn’t following with physical activity.

In my clinic so many patients asked me about Weight loss.
“Eat less and Exercise more” is very simple rule to lose weight, but for the real over weight patients, actually it is not easy. Sometimes, it is impossible. Because patient inside body system already has some broken balance. Here we are going to discuss about Oriental, natural way for Weight Loss without side effect.
In Soo acupuncture clinic, Acupuncture, Acupressure and Herb supplements are very helpful for Weight Loss.
Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin needles at specific body points (Mainly on abdominal area). The inserted needles act to stimulate the release of endorphins, or helping circulation of blood to local needle area. This can reduce the desire for excessive eating brought by increased stress, frustration or anxiety. And it can stimulate some stomach points for helping digestion (don’t let your food and toxic stay in your stomach long time) and burning local fat cells
Acupressure is another way to Lose Weight by stimulation abdominal Points. Acupressure by massaging some points (especially on your stomach) is not only helps to lose weight but also it improves Digestive System, and balance internal body system.
