Weight Loss – A Key Area of Specialisation

Traditional Chinese Medicine treats weight loss holistically with great success. It sees weight gain as a symptom of an underlying health problem, generally a deficiency of Qi, the vital energy which regulates your health and flows around the body. Symptoms of Qi deficiency include weight gain, bloating, low energy, tiredness, sugar cravings, bowel irregularities, food intolerances, pale complexion, dull and lifeless skin and low immunity.

GinSen's Weight Loss management programme is highly effective in achieving weight loss quickly whilst maintaining good health. Your treatment plan will be tailored to suit your individual constitution and internal imbalances, drawing on our range of weight loss therapies:

  • Gentle, draining lymph pressure
  • Deep manual friction to break down fatty deposits
  • Long, gentle sweeping strokes to relax you and boost your energy
  • Spleen, stomach, kidney and liver meridian and acupoint massage to boost internal Qi

You will also receive advice on general health, diet and exercise. This will ensure a treatment plan that is safe, effective and healthy for your body. Acupuncture is particularly effective in treating weight loss. Our Practitioners look for signs of dysfunction paying particular attention to symptoms, medical history and your general constitution. Acupuncture removes blockages in the flow of Q and restores body balance. A well balanced, healthy body is essential for weight loss to be effective and lasting.

Herbal Medicine aids body balance, treats specific disorders, promotes good health and disease prevention. It strengthens and enhances normal body functions and boosts the immune system. If your TCM Practitioner considers Herbal Tea should form part of your weight loss plan, you will be prescribed a customized formula. Progress is monitored through regular consultation.
