Weight loss

Americans spend billions of dollars annually on weight loss products, but obesity is still on the rise. People are even turning to
surgery as a weight loss option. This is a drastic measure and can cause unwanted side effects.

Unfortunately, excess weight is not just a cosmetic issue. Being overweight is a risk factor for many conditions such as high
blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. The good news is that maintaining a healthy weight can reduce your risk, and it's
never too late to get started. People seeking to address their weight concerns are turning to acupuncture as a natural and
effective way to approach weight loss.

A traditional approach to healing Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) take a holistic, or whole-body
approach to health. This ancient form of healthcare works to restore the balance and flow of the body's Qi (pronounced
“Chee”), or vital energy. According to TCM, the reasons why people gain weight, or find it difficult to lose weight, are
numerous. Acupuncturist is well versed in uncovering the root cause(s) or imbalances that have affected your weight.

Acupuncturist will also take into consideration other factors that may have led to weight gain, including your lifestyle, and
emotional and mental well-being. By taking your whole self into account, your and your acupuncturist can get to the root of your
health concerns, rather than just treating the symptoms.

What will my acupuncturist do? During your first visit, your acupuncturist will take an extensive health history and perform
various exams. At the completion of your first visit, your acupuncturist will provide you with a comprehensive diagnosis and an
explanation of your treatment plan. Your treatment will focus on correcting any underlying imbalances in your body, and will
also help to support you in reaching your weight loss goals.

Based on your unique symptoms, your acupuncturist will choose to concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific
organs. For example, restoring balance to the flow of Qi in the Stomach can help promote good digestion and suppress an
overactive appetite. Emotional issues, such as anxiety and stress both of which can lead to overeating, can be addressed by
balancing the Liver.

A partnership for better health
It is important to remember that acupuncture is not a “quick fix.” By working with your acupuncturist, and committing to long
term goals, you will experience positive changes in your overall health, including maintaining a healthy body weight.

In addition to acupuncture treatments, your practitioner may also recommend other lifestyle changes. Whether you want to
lose a few pounds or a significant amount, people are turning to acupuncture as a natural and effective way to approach
weight loss. By working together with your practitioner, you can help your body regain its natural balance-and start taking
steps toward true health and vitality.

Other ways to support your path toward a happier, leaner you!

- Exercise is an important component of any weight loss program. Adding aerobic exercise, weight training, and other
types of exercise to your daily routine will have a positive effect on your weight and general health.

- Diet is another important issue to consider. In general, a health diet is made up of unprocessed, organic foods,including
a wide variety of whole grains and vegetables. Your acupuncturist may offer nutritional counseling designed for your
specific needs.

- Stress relief may also be a part of your treatment. By learning to lower stress and anxiety through techniques such as
breathing exercise, mediation, or gentle exercise, you may lose weight more easily, and possibly stop destructive
habits such as overeating.

What is Lipoderm ?
Lipoderm is an ideal non-invasive ultrasound cavitation system for the
destruction of adipocyte by generating a very deep cavitation action via
28KHz frequency ultrasound. Micro-bubbles caused by the deep cavitation
will help make an emulsification of fat to remove the liquid substance through
urine and the lympathic method for long-lasting effect.

Advantage
1. Non-invasive cellulite & Fat treatment
Permanent Cellulite Treatment effect: Once the fat cell is broken,
the fat cells won’t be regenerated(
NO Yo-Yo effect)

2. Short Treatment( 30 min for abdomen) for drastic result!
Average waist
size reduction is
about 0.7 inches PER TREATMENT.

3. No-pain, and no side-effect

4. It breaks the fat cell using Ultrasound waves without damaging other
inner organs.
How does it work?
Technological advances have made it possible to use low-frequency ultrasound for localized fat reduction,more
often known by the popular names of love handles, love handles or jowls.
This also led to increasingly more popular names such as cavitation or ultracavitacion. The low-frequency
ultrasonic waves are useful in combating various effects fatty accumulations.
It produces lipolysis of fatty acids from adipocytes (fat-laden cells) due to a phenomenon known as stable
cavitation, and increased cell permeability of the adipocytes. You get an increased flow of triglycerides.

Finally, some content of adipocytes is metabolized by the liver and eliminated in the urine, so it’s always
recommended drinking plenty of water both the day of treatment and subsequent days.
Cavitation by Ultrasound
Ultrasonic felt like internal explosion. It means that the expansion and compression of the wave produce a lot of
tiny space inside the liquid. The gas and vapors exist in these tiny space. In the compression of cycle,
supersonic wave impose a positive pressure on liquid molecule, whereas a negative pressure will be created
through the expansion cycle. There is a cohesion effect inside the liquid or biological tissues. Inside the low-
density lipocyte, the cohesive effects are comparatively weak Before During treatment After Liquefied fat cells
