Does research support acupuncture for weight loss?
Research suggests that acupuncture can help to reduce Body Mass Index (BMI) and body weight by reversing mechanisms that link to appetite and energy metabolism.
A 2021 study concluded that acupuncture therapy for obesity targeted the region that controls the body’s energy homeostasis and appetite.
A 2020 review comparing the effects of acupuncture with “sham acupuncture” for obesity showed that acupuncture significantly reduced body weight and BMI compared to sham acupuncture.
A 2017 study reported that acupuncture, whether alone or with lifestyle interventions, significantly reduced BMI.
A healthy lifestyle is critical to a healthy body and that includes regular acupuncture sessions.
