Weight Loss Programme 

Our Weight Loss Programme focuses on treating the underlying body constitution that results in excess weight. According to the TCM theory, overweight is usually due to the accumulation of dampness evil and phlegm that transform into fat tissues. The condition often results from an insufficient Spleen, and is closely related to the functions of the Liver and Kidney.

 

Our Approach

 

At Macpherson TCM, we take an integrated, holistic approach to manage overweight. Our TCM Physicians use Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture to correct the disharmony patterns of the body that results in excess weight. The treatment principle is to expel the excess evils and tonify the internal organs. We take a further step to combine western medical knowledge to identify any underlying illnesses that require more medical intervention, for examples, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hypothyroidism, binge eating, etc. We provide personalised Exercise Training and Therapeutic Tui-na (Chinese form of massage), as well as nutrition counseling based on individual needs to achieve more effective and lasting outcome.

Treatment Methods

  • Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles in specific points (acupoints) on the body to stimulate the flow of Qi (life energy) along the Meridians linking the internal organs, ensuring that the organs are well nourished to carry out their functions efficiently. In addition, special seeds are sometimes placed on certain points on the ears with small plasters to help suppress appetite and curb craving for high-fat, high-sugar foods.

 

  • Personalised Exercise Programme

The key to long term weight loss success is a complete lifestyle change. On top of the TCM treatments, our professional personal trainer will design safe and effective weight loss training programme based on individual needs.

 

  • One-On-One Nutrition Counseling

You will be guided to learn about integrating high nutrients, low calories, less processed food into daily diet without much struggle. A healthy eating habit will help you lose weight, conquer cravings, and boost metabolism.

  • Chinese Herbal Medicine

A Chinese Herbal Formula of 8 to 12 herbs is often prescribed to adjust the body constitution. Depending on each individual’s condition, the herbs chosen aims to nourish the Spleen, harmonize the Stomach, regulate the Liver, tonify the Kidney, and resolve any Dampness Evil and Phlegm.

 

  • Therapeutic Tui-Na

In addition, Tui-na, which is very good at promoting relaxation and rejuvenation, can help relieve stress, and overcome emotional eating. Tui-na is also very effective in relieving muscle fatigue and soreness from exercise. This enables overweight individuals to stick to their exercise regimen without being deterred by the after effect of the work outs.
