Weight Loss Q&A

What is weight loss?

Weight loss is the process of reducing body mass. If you carry excess weight, particularly around your midsection, sustainable weight loss can improve your health and well-being. 


Losing weight can be challenging. While it may seem as simple as eating less and exercising more, many factors can inhibit weight loss. Jeanine and her North Shore Acupuncture and Wellness team understand the obstacles you may face in your weight loss journey. That’s why they work with you to develop a personalized plan that helps you lose weight and keep it off.


While many healthcare professionals prescribe medication that results in short-term weight loss, Jeanine and her team use alternative therapies to support your long-term goals.

Why is weight loss important?

Carrying excess weight can affect your physical and mental health. Losing even 5-10% of your body weight can positively impact your overall well-being. Important benefits of weight loss include:

Reduced risk of chronic diseases

Maintaining a healthy weight reduces your risk of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), and arthritis.

Increased energy

When you carry less weight, your body expends less energy moving around. It also improves oxygen efficiency, allowing you to conserve more energy.

Improved mental health

Weight loss allows you to participate in the activities you enjoy and enhances your mobility, which can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Better sleep quality

Losing weight relieves sleep apnea symptoms and other sleep-related disorders to help you feel refreshed in the morning.

Can acupuncture help with weight loss?

Acupuncture may facilitate weight loss. This traditional Chinese medicine technique involves inserting thin needles into specific points throughout the body. Traditional Eastern practitioners believe acupuncture helps promote energy flow or Qi. By supporting your body’s energy flow, acupuncture may boost your metabolism, lower stress, and reduce your appetite.


Acupuncture also helps relieve musculoskeletal pain, which can improve your mobility and help you stay active throughout your weight loss journey.
