Many people struggle to lose weight and keep it off. We are intimately acquainted with the difficulties of weight loss and proper nutrition, having experienced our own journeys with food and health. Garden Acupuncture co-founder Alex Goldberg successfully used Whole Systems Traditional Chinese Medicine (WS-TCM) to lose over 100 pounds and maintain his new weight over many years. He is the co-author, with Mikhail J. Artamonov MD, of Your Health, Your Weight, Your Life, a weight loss guide grounded in WS-TCM.
We work with clients on an individual basis to address nutrition, emotions, and stress in tandem. We do not promote a diet, but a lifestyle change. Demanding immediate results of yourself is unfair and ineffective. For this reason, we provide a 3-month program of support and counseling including:
Individualized Attention and Instruction
36 Acupuncture Treatments
6 Chinese Herbal Formulas
Gua-Sha, Tui Na, Cupping & Ear Seeds
Nutritional Support, Information and Education
Our Weight Loss Book
For thousands of years, acupuncture has been used in China to treat weight loss and maintenance. Combined with nutritional counseling, acupuncture addresses imbalances in the body to increase energy, improve sleep and reduce food cravings. Herbs effectively stimulate metabolism and diminish appetite, making it easier to lose and maintain weight. Your consultations include discussions of your particular pattern of overeating, as well as a unique treatment plan designed for you.
