Acupuncture and chiropractic both support proper weight and metabolism because they are holistic programs. Acupuncture uses the placement of small needles along meridians or channels that course the body carrying qi or life energy. The goal of acupuncture is to create the free flow of qi, the result of which is abundant health and well being on all fronts. Weight management is part of this. Similarly, chiropractic medicine strives to reduce impediments to nerve energy flow in from the brain through the spine to all points in the body. When the body and mind function well together in a balanced state, weight loss occurs naturally. A goal of therapy is to balance the autonomic nervous system so that there is less pain, and less stress, better sleep, and improved metabolism. As such, weight loss can occur more readily.
