According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the root of excess weight is an imbalance within the body caused by malfunctioning of the spleen and liver organ systems.
The spleen is responsible for the proper functioning of the digestive system, ensuring that the food we eat is transformed into Qi — the vital substance of life. Disharmony of the spleen will have symptoms such as fatigue, water retention, slow metabolism, loose stool, and feeling of heaviness.
The liver’s job is to keep the flow of your body’s Qi and blood (as well as your emotions) running smoothly. Our modern, fast-paced lifestyle and stress can negatively impact the liver’s ability to function properly, which, in turn, can cause the spleen and the digestive system to function negatively and decrease your metabolism.

Acupuncture and auricular therapy are effective tools when accompanied with a well balanced diet and exercise.
