Weight Loss

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.

“My husband was the first to go, wanting to get some help for weight loss. After a few visits and hearing about how much he enjoyed it, I went in for a consultation. Alex saw me and sat down with me for 90 minutes! He taught me so much about my body, diet and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) it blew my mind. He asked me to make a few changes in my eating habits, take Chinese herbs and see him twice a week. I have to tell you that in the first week, I started feeling like a completely different person, like the person I am supposed to be!”
