Sleep and your weight
Did you know that when you sleep badly, it can disrupt the release of leptin (fullness hormone) and ghrelin (hunger hormone) — which impacts metabolism? These hormone changes increase appetite and food intake because of increased hunger signals and fewer signs to stop eating. Learn what you can do to prevent this from Exercise Physiologist Michelle Lee, BS, Lifestyle Health.
What can you expect at an acupuncture appointment?
At your first appointment, you will meet one-on-one with a licensed acupuncturist, who will use a Traditional Oriental Medical Assessment to explore your health issues in depth and help identify main imbalances. The goal is to help you resolve long-standing, stubborn conditions that have been causing pain or discomfort and have been slow to respond to other treatments.
