Traditional Chinese Medicine and Weight Loss

As Chinese medicine dates back thousands of years you can be certain that a weight loss program based on Chinese Herbal Medicine doesn’t involve a lot of calorie counting or other modern obsessions. What it does do is take a holistic approach that is tailored to the individual. That typically includes dietary modifications in the form of recommended healthy foods as well as a list of foods to be avoided. Lifestyle changes are also recommended. Binge dieting is simply not part of the traditional Chinese Medicine approach to weight loss and control. Instead, every effort is made to alter the client’s attitude to embrace the notion of food as nutrition rather than food as simply something to eat.

The Role of Acupuncture in Weight Loss

It may surprise some to discover that acupuncture has been used for centuries to aid in weight loss. In traditional Chinese Medicine it is believed that excessive weight gain is the result of imbalances in the endocrine system and kidneys. Skilled acupuncturists like those at Richmond Hill Acupuncture & Natural Therapy Clinic target specific areas of the body including the thyroid, spleen, adrenal gland and ovaries to effect a rebalancing of sugar and hormone levels and effectively reset the body’s mechanisms for processing food.

Tui Na Massage and Weight Loss

Both traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine recognize there is an emotional component to weight gain as well. That is why we often recommend traditional Tui Na massage should be a component of any comprehensive weight loss program. Imbalances in the Oi the body’s essential energy flow) often lead to emotional disturbances and Tui Na massage, like acupuncture, can be utilized to restore balance to the Oi. When Tui Na massage is used in concert with a targeted acupuncture regimen as well as dietary and lifestyle modifications long term sustainable weight loss for Richmond Hill clients becomes an achievable reality.
