Welcome to Acu-Thin at Westport Chiropractic and Acupuncture
The Acu - Thin program is a system of weight loss based on the principle of auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture) used to decrease the desire for food. It can be done with needles or can be done without needles. For several years, this program has been shown to be effective without increasing exercise or involving extreme changes in diet. Results are usually noticed quickly and loss of appetite can be felt immediately!
The Acu - Thin programs requires just one weekly visit to the office. At the end of each of your weekly visits, the doctor will apply Acu - Thin Pressure Point Patches, to maintain acupressure on the ear points until your next visit, greatly magnifying the effect. During the week, Acu - Thin can also be done at home without needles by using the Acu - Thin Pen, a piezo electric device which emits a small charge, stimulating the ear points. In combination with minimal herbal and nutritional support you will find that "Hunger stops and weight drops…almost like magic," says Dr. Guerin. Even after one treatment, Acu - Thin users can usually feel the difference.
Dr. Patrick Guerin has created a personalized program of Auriculotherapy (acupuncture to the ear), herbs and meal supplementation that help control his clients' without hunger, cravings or calorie counting. "Acupuncturists have known for many years that there are specific points in the human ear that can be stimulated to help dramatically control various addictive behaviors. These treatments are well documented and are in use in clinics throughout the world to aid recovery from all sorts of addictions by relieving cravings. I have been using several points in my treatments, which have resulted in appetite suppression without side effects. This, in combination with minimal herbal and nutritional supplementation, has given my patients more than enough support to become successful in losing weight."
