How many sessions are required for weight loss treatment?

The Acupuncture protocols for Weight loss increase the amount of weight loss, when combined with calories restrictions and exercise (like walk). There are studies to show that 3-4 sessions of acupuncture during the interval of 3-4 week are effective. No studies are done over 4 weeks. For the best results,my practical recommendation is to use the acupuncture weekly for 10-12 weeks , in addition with ear acupuncture or with magnets which are taped to the ear and squeezed when you feel hungry. Also the efficiency can be enhanced by using Chinese herbal formulas ,which can help the acupuncture to balance the excessive or deficient systems in your body. Not only you can loose weight, but you can start feel much better than before. D. Saxman M. D.
