Dieting alone is not enough for effective weight loss. Focusing on a specific diet with fewer calories and more fiber can achieve temporary weight loss, but diets are not sustainable in the long term. When people go off the diet, they tend to gain back the weight. This is because dieting does not get at the causes of food obsessions, cravings, and stress. Acupressure can help by healing at the deep level of your body’s energy system.
Improving Body Image with Acupressure Therapy
This program is also effective for healing your body’s self-image and restoring trust in its awareness. The nature of giving yourself Acupressure enables you to be more in touch with your body and the messages it’s sending you. Acupressure points release tension, stress, and energy blockages. This cultivates greater awareness and a profound, grounded wisdom for developing a natural intuition about when and what to eat.
Weight Loss & Emotional Healing
There’s a direct connection between weight loss and emotional healing. Another of my Acupressure Self-Care books discusses nutrition and healthy eating. Acupressure for Emotional Healing has three Acupressure Routines for different aspects of eating difficulties.
The Role of Stress
Being under stress worsens eating problems. The Acupressure Weight Loss audio program reduces stress and is easy to practice. In less than a half-hour, once or twice a day, these 12 Weight Loss Techniques can transform your metabolism and appetite, and improve your problems with eating.
One of the 12 Techniques, for example, presses a potent Acupressure point in your lower abdomen, CV6, located three finger-widths below your belly button. This can increase the strength and function of your intestines. This point alone can enable you to lose weight by stimulating your body’s energy to eliminate properly.
This routine also includes massaging key ear points used for eating problems. By practicing this routine once or twice daily, you’ll have less stress, better appetite balance, and a greater sense of wellness.
The Acupressure Weight Loss and body image program provides an easy daily routine to balance your metabolism and appetite and harmonize your body’s energy system. Dieting alone is not the right approach to maintain a healthy weight. Instead, by actually working on your body — through gentle stretches, deep breathing, and self-massage on the Acupressure points — you can reduce cravings and overeating. It is possible to transform your relationship with your body and with food.
How Does It Work?
This weight loss and body image program offers an effective approach to losing weight using three natural modalities:
- Deep Breathing Exercises relax and calm you, gathering healing energy for reducing stress and improving your digestion.
- Movement Stretches stimulate circulation in your abdominal area, helping to regulate your appetite.
- Self-Acupressure on key digestive points increases your body awareness, decreases your food cravings, and balances your appetite.
The postures, movements, and stretches in this program activate specific Acupressure points to release the flow of healing energy through the Stomach and Spleen Meridians. This energy flow balances your appetite and your digestive system, and also reduces compulsive urges to eat.
