Chinese needles may help regulate and enhance the metabolism processes in the body, by regulating the digestive process and some hormones such as insulin and other hormones, which leads to accelerating the process of burning fat.


*** Regulating appetite hormones.


Acupuncture sessions help to suppress appetite and regulate digestion by stimulating the hormone ghrelin, which is responsible for controlling appetite, and leptin, which is responsible for the process of storing fat and also which contributes to slimming and weight loss.


*** Reducing mood and stress hormones.


Chinese needles can help lose weight by affecting the level of cortisol, a hormone whose levels rise in cases of stress and anxiety, and its increase leads to weight gain. Chinese needles help reduce the level of this hormone, which contributes to reducing obesity. On the other hand, the benefits of Chinese needles for slimming may be achieved by stimulating the nervous system to secrete endorphins, which in turn contribute to suppressing appetite and improving mood.
