SomNext, body points
would be selected based on the diagnosis. The needles would be kept
in place for around thirty to forty-five minutes. After the needles
are removed, ear tacks with adhesive on them are often placed to
continue the stimulation between treatments. When the patient feels
an urge to eat, s/he applies mild pressure to the point or rubs
it back and forth for about 20 seconds. This type of acupressure
stimulates the point, causes a mild endorphin release, relaxes the
patient and helps them to regain their willpower or resolve about
resisting the temptation to eat.
The number of acupuncture treatments necessary depends on the patient's
goals for losing weight, the speed at which they want to lose, and
their commitment to keeping the weight off. For the average patient
who wants to lose between five to ten kgs, one treatment every once
or twice a week until they reach their goal is appropriate, and
then a booster treatment once every two weeks is optimal. After
a few booster treatments, the patient and practitioner will mutually
decide when to terminate frequent treatments and then can aim to
meet approximately four times a year.
