HOUSTON (PRWEB) September 19, 2018
Representatives with Houston-based Top Acupuncture announced today that it is now offering a weight loss program at it Houston clinic.
“Acupuncture can help you lose weight,” said Sylvia He, owner of Top Acupuncture, a company with memberships with the China General Chamber of Commerce USA and the Texas Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
According to a study published in the International Journal of Neuroscience, acupuncture is effective in procuring weight loss.
In addition, the study pointed out that acupuncture can reduce appetite, the feeling of hunger, and the rate at which food moves through the digestive tract and metabolism.
“Acupuncture also adjust emotions that can lead to weight gain, especially stress,” He stressed.
But that’s not all. Acupuncture, according to He, stimulate the hypothalamus, the part of a person’s brain that controls hunger.
“Acupuncture also increases the levels of enkephalin, beta endorphin, and serotonin – natural substances that make you feel happy and relaxed – in your blood and brain tissue,” He explained, before adding, “Serotonin enhances intestinal mobility, meaning acupuncture helps food move through your digestive tract before your body has time to absorb and deposit fat. Acupuncture also increases muscle tone in your digestive tract so your stomach does not stretch out when you eat, leaving you feeling satisfied after even small meals.”
He went on to note that acupuncture works in other ways to help individuals lose weight and prevent weight gain.
“This approach boosts your metabolism rate in a way that enhances how your body burns calories,” He said.
