With the heat rising and the gorgeous Florida sun beaming, many of us are reminded that summer is just around the corner!
For most, it is a time for fun, going out on the boat, and spending loads of time at the beach. For others of us, however, the impending swimsuit season places added stress on our health and weight loss goals. And we know it’s not just women who face these challenges… In fact, “more than four in five men (80.7%) talk in ways that promote anxiety about their body image by referring to perceived flaws and imperfections, compared with 75% of women. Similarly, 38% of men would sacrifice at least a year of their life in exchange for a perfect body – again, a higher proportion than women.”(1)
We at Chah Acutherapy believe your body is a temple, and you should never feel you need to change its appearance to please anyone else…
Even with a positive body image, however, there are still those of us who cherish our vessels and understand the importance of keeping it fit and healthy to ensure a long life full of vitality! And sometimes, that means getting real on our weight loss goals. Because of that, we understand that sometimes the reward of stepping out in your favorite summer-wear with confidence and a sense of achievement is what makes summertime activities that much more fun… and there’s nothing wrong with that!
With this all in mind, studies have shown that auricular acupuncture has been successful in helping people to achieve their weight loss goals. How does it work? In short, the specific points stimulated during this set of therapy sessions eases stress and increases relaxation and a sense of well-being, which in turn helps to mitigate stress-induced eating and those moments of feeling overwhelmed by your goals. This puts you in a position of power to keep your commitments to yourself, and allows you to begin seeing real results.
Auricular acupuncture involves stimulating specific points on the ear, so a treatment can be completed fairly easily and quickly, and you can have it done while simply sitting in a chair. This is great because many of us have busy schedules to begin with, so to be able to step in for a treatment that only takes a few moments out of your day is a perfect way to step up your game and commit to your goals.
