Weight Loss Laser Therapy
Weight loss laser therapy acts as a natural appetite suppression, allowing you to eat less food and become fuller faster. This therapy uses meridian point stimulation to naturally suppress your appetite and keep you relaxed. It is a great program for nervous eaters and for late night snackers.
How Does Laser for Weight Loss Work?
The therapy is based on acupuncture using a cold, low level laser. This should not be confused with “hot” lasers that are used for surgery and hair removal. The cold laser is directed at points on your ears, face, hands and wrists. These meridian points are mostly associated with the stomach, intestines and stress points. The process is completely painless and very relaxing as most clients tend to fall asleep during the therapy.
Laser acupuncture has the ability to influence obesity hormones. Research measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss found treatments increased ghrelin, a hormone that controls meal initiation and decreased leptin, the hormone that regulates fat storage and metabolism. Laser acupuncture can enhance any other weight loss program by curbing appetite, improving digestion, regulating hormones, reducing cravings and boosting your metabolism.
The laser acupuncture strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients and breaking down of fats. Acupuncture may also increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach to help people know that they are full.
