Weight Management / Reduction
Our unique package will help you achieve your health/weight loss goals through utilizing a range of skills, including lifestyle advice, hands on therapies and herbal supplements.
Our bodies are all uniquely different and diverse, and here at Newtown Acupuncture we celebrate every-bodies individuality! Some people want to loose some weight in order to feel and look they way they want, while others have health conditions that they know are complicated by carrying extra weight. We like to know the needs of our patients, ensuring we can offer them the right support to see their goals achieved. The following therapies are offered to help you on your weight loss journey.
Weight reduction massage
Our massage therapist trained in weight reduction massage in Chile, South America. The treatment manually stimulates the fat cells, breaking fatty accumulations down so that they can be eliminated from the body more easily. This technique is combined with lymphatic massage to encourage broken down fat tissues to be moved through the lymphatic system and out of the body. Hernan also applies special thermal gel at the end of the treatment that causes the body to 'turn up the heat' in the area it is applied to, increasing circulation to the area.
Centuries of knowledge have accumulated in the tradition of Chinese medicine. It is often prescribed to address the health needs of the whole person to support their weight goals, be it emotional instability and food craving, hormonal imbalances, fatigue and low motivation, stress/ tension, chronic digestive issues etc. We use top quality modified classical formulas that have shown their efficacy and safety over decades of use.
Acupuncture is applied with a similar focus to Chinese herbal medicine, as they share the same diagnostic system. Acupuncture however also allows for that deep relaxation and time out here at the clinic. The needles are placed at acupuncture points that match the needs of the individual. A 2017 systematic review and meta analysis found that acupuncture appeared to be an effective treatment for adult obesity. Go here
Sauna's are a great way to help with circulation and detoxification. The sauna induces a sweat, and people report a similar relaxation response as after moderate exercise.
Movement is important in so many ways. It helps with stress and mood disorders, promotes circulation and cardiovascular health, it also increases our joint and muscle conditioning.
Exercise can feel like a chore, but it should also feel good and be sustainable. We run both yoga and martial arts classes at NAC. Our teachers are supportive, motivated and kind. Shaolin Kung Fu creates agility, flexibility and strength, a bit of a boot camp! Our yoga classes encourage physical conditioning and strengthening, but with a strong focus on our relationship to our body and mind, and practical ways to calm down and feel centered.
