Did you hear that? There’s an acupuncture treatment that reduces cravings, controls your appetite and helps with overall weight loss? Yes there is, but the needles may be placed in a spot some may not guess…
At DASHA® we believe in treating the whole self and not just your symptoms. DASHA®’s Acupuncturist will ask you a series of questions regarding your lifestyle, emotions, sleeping patterns, eating habits, medical history and a hands on thorough examination to gain a better idea of the overall functioning of your body.
If your goal happens to be weight loss, lucky for you DASHA® offers Auricular Therapy.
Now, while this treatment has been around for some time, it recently has become increasingly popular by many struggling with their weight loss journey and/or want to maintain their healthy weight.
During auricular therapy tinny acupuncture needles are instreated at acupuncture points in the ear for about 15-30 mins. Yes, you heard that correctly. There are hundreds of acupuncture points in the ear that are linked to about every organ, hormone and body system. That’s why specific parts of the outer ear are linked to hunger, appetite and those late night cravings!
Herbal ear seeds may also be used to maintain acupuncture benefits between treatments. These help with reducing anxiety, depression, headaches, stress, seasonal symptoms and digestive issues amongst many others.
DASHA® believes strongly in the practice of “Clean Needle Technique,” in which all needles are sterile, single-use, and properly disposed of after treatment. Acupuncture has no significant negative side effects and is, as a result, extremely safe and effective medicine.
