Finding the root

Unlike conventional medicine that treats symptoms and specializes in different areas, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine look at patients as a whole system and finds the origin of imbalance to correct problems from the root.

Retrain your body

It is crucial to have a series of treatments for your body to reset how to function correctly. Just like training a muscle, it needs repetition and persistence. Acupuncture stimulates your body´s power to heal, avoiding the use of medications that, most of the time, are just covering symptoms.

Auricular acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture
It is a form of therapy, also called Auricular Therapy, Auriculotherapy, or Ear acupuncture, and part of Traditional Chinese medicine; it distinguishes by the insertion of needles, placement of magnets, or seeds into particular areas on the ear.

Auricular therapy aims to stimulate specific parts of our ear that reflect and connect to organs in the whole body. It’s also a method to diagnose and treat several illnesses and conditions.

Uses of Auricular acupuncture

Acupuncturists stimulate some points in the ear to influence the nervous system and normalize most body functions; that way, help cure many symptoms and diseases. Ear therapy has proven especially useful in pain relief, calming the mind, and enhancing general well-being.

Why should I lose weight?

Overweight and obesity are serious health issues in the U.S. Obesity affects over 70 million adults, while 99 million are overweight; now, children and teens are increasingly becoming obese at younger ages.

The prevalence of this condition differs by sex, race, and educational level of the affected population, but all weight problems result in numerous diseases and health issues.

But weight issues go more in-depth. Most conclusive obesity facts and statistics show that the two striking causes of obesity involve over-consumption of lousy food and lack of exercise. Overweight and obesity bring on several malfunctioning of internal organs and other related problems, such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease, including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and stroke.
  • Type II diabetes.
  • Increased risk of certain types of cancer, kidney disease, liver disease, and arthritis.
  • Breathing problems like sleep apnea.
  • Depression and stress.
  • Increases in early mortality and low life expectancy.
  • Increased health care use.
  • High economic costs to society regarding treatment services and working issues.

Is acupuncture effective for weight loss?

Since 2004 several medical societies classified obesity as a chronic illness. Scientists have begun to understand the potential and real benefits of Traditional Chinese medicine approaches to manage weight issues.


Researchers have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss and its positive impact on all body systems. This ancient therapy, part of TCM, is now a standard method to relieve pain and treat several illnesses and conditions, including weight loss.

Chinese explain that complementary life forces yin and yang exist as energy –the “qi”– affecting both nature and human beings. When working together in harmony, they promote wellness, but disruption in the energy flow causes imbalance and illnesses.

Conventional medicine treatments include changes to diet, exercising, medication, and even surgery for severe cases. Oriental medicine offers a natural, less invasive healing approach, and a long-term solution to deal with weight problems.

TCM treats the human body as a whole, focusing on regulating and improve essential bodily processes more than curing illnesses. Treatments aim to achieve balance and restore health by correcting the energy flow.

Acupuncturists insert thin needles through the skin or use their hands to stimulate pathways in the human body called meridians; by pressing these acu-points, they restore energy flow and balance, boosting the proper functioning of all body’s systems.

    How can acupuncture reverse the impact factors causing obesity successfully?

    It affects your hormones, by influencing both insulin and leptin hormones; these appetite-regulating neuro-chemicals help maintain normal glucose levels and keep a healthy weight. That can be a significant issue for people with diabetes.

    It reduces appetite, cravings, anxiety eating, and addictions, including addiction to food.
    It strengthens the functioning of the liver, kidneys, and the digestive system; this promotes healthy digestion, and consequently, weight loss.

    It reduces inflammation, one of the most common related-conditions to overweight, obesity, and diabetes.
    It helps reduce stress, depression, and anxiety; these emotions may often arise due to changes in diet, lifestyle, habits, and weight-loss expectations.
    It promotes better sleep. Restful sleep allows your body’s metabolic processes to normalize and work more efficiently, helping weight loss even when sleeping.
    It boosts your energy. The improvement in your energy flow reduces stress-related hormones and increases endorphin and serotonin levels, both “feel-good” hormones. Feelings of happiness have a positive impact on the mind and body, improve your mood, and ease the loss of weight.
    It’s a cost-effective solution. Whether alone or with other techniques, acupuncture can be a less invasive way and long-term solution to help you lose weight. It may even help avoid nasty side effects of medication and costly or unnecessary surgical procedures.


      Considering acupuncture for weight loss? Here are FOUR tips to help you lose weight

      1. Choose a qualified acupuncturist.
      Sanar Healing offers you well-trained and experienced acupuncturists that can better suit your needs and expectations. Your first visit consists of evaluating your current condition and diagnosis to suggest an individualized treatment plan.


      The method, frequency, and the number of sessions may be different for everyone.

We offer free consultations and discount packages; we also take PPO insurance plans if covered.

      However, we make sure the recommended technique and intent of the treatment fit for your unique condition, diagnosis, and criteria. You also can discuss any concerns about the procedure before the treatment begins.

      2.. Change your lifestyle.
      A comprehensive weight-loss plan increases effectiveness when combined with healthful habits, including diet and regular physical activity.

      Acupuncture restores the balance of qi in the body, positively impacting the mind and body. General well-being promotes natural healing, which provides extra energy to support your weight loss efforts easily.

      3. Get commitment.
      Weight loss isn’t a single-day work but a process that requires consistency and will power; insist on losing weight can lead to frustration when results don’t come off quickly.

      Sticking to your weight loss plan and new routine changes will gradually come, allowing yourself to experience wellness in time. Acupuncture for weight loss help keep a positive attitude by promoting your mental and physical health; that way, it’ll improve your mood to undertake lifestyle changes gladly, thus enhancing your quality of life.


      4. Get medical assistance.
      Your health care provider can determine the severity of your problem; some cases might require treatment of previous conditions or even surgery.

      Although Oriental medicine is not a cure-all science, it works better when combined with other medical procedures, increasing effectiveness.
