This program is designed for new patients and those new to acupuncture. You will receive an initial 90-minute appointment followed by two additional 60-minute appointments. We recommend treatments be cumulative, 3 treatments should be enough to notice some type of change in your health conditions. In more chronic conditions, it may be that only secondary issues are seeing improvement at this point in the treatment progression. After the third appointment, our acupuncturist re-evaluates you to determine the best course of treatment.
This program combines 6-weeks of 60-minute clinical acupuncture treatments with three 60-minute bi-weekly orthopedic massage therapy. After the conculsion of the sixth week, our medical providers will re-evaluate the patient to determine the next course of action.
Acupuncture can aid with weight loss by stimulating the body’s energy flow (chi) to impact factors that can reverse obesity by increasing metabolism, reducing appetite, lowering stress, and influencing the part of the brain that feels hunger. This plan is two 90-minute acupuncture sessions for 8 weeks, plus nutritional coaching, and daily journaling. The patient will undergo weekly weigh-ins to ensure nutritional goals are on track. Optimal weight loss goals are intended for 10-15 pounds.
