Metabolic Acupuncture Q&A

Whether this is the first time you have struggled to lose weight or you’ve battled it your whole life, the Metabolic Boost and Metabolic Repair packages pump up your body’s response to weight loss efforts.  Our holistic approach combines elements of both Eastern and Western nutrition with specialized abdominal acupuncture and herbal medicine to stimulate the metabolism and burn fat.

To be clear: this program will not make the weight magically fall off of you.  You still have to exercise and eat healthy. This program maximizes your ability to lose weight so that your efforts actually work and last.

Metabolic Acupuncture helps with:

Benefits include:

Here’s how it works:

During your consultation, we will do a full assessment to identify imbalances that are contributing to your inability to lose weight and/or constant creeping weight gains. Your metabolic acupuncture specialist will then make recommendations for which program is right for you and schedule your treatment sessions.

We have two programs designed to help two different types of weight loss patients.  Both programs include:

Program Options

Metabolic Boost

Metabolic Boost is a 6-week jump-start for metabolisms that are just starting to lag. People who need to lose 5-10 pounds and are struggling with losing the weight for the first time are perfect for this program!  Stubborn baby weight, middle age hormone shifts, and stress-overwhelm weight gain are well within this program’s scope.  This program is a quick six weeks of acupuncture treatments twice a week.  Metabolic boost packages start at $1600.

Metabolic Repair

Metabolic Repair is a 12-week program for people who have struggled with weight for a long time.  Their metabolisms are far off track and usually complicated by other health conditions.  Metabolic Repair aims to repair the deep underlying patterns of imbalance by first rebuilding the foundations of the metabolism and THEN revving things up for some weight loss.  This program starts with acupuncture once a week for six weeks, and then shifts into high gear with treatments twice a week for another six weeks.  Metabolic repair packages start at $2400.

A note on clinic accessibility: our location requires climbing a flight of stairs to our second floor clinic space.

Metabolic Acupuncture Q & A

Q: How long will the benefits last?

A:  The goal of these programs is to repair the metabolism to the point that it is able to maintain and continue weight loss under its own power.

Q: How often do I come in for treatments?

A: The Boost protocol calls for 2 treatments per week for 6 weeks. The Repair program is a bit longer because it has deeper patterns to address; 6 weekly treatments followed by 6 weeks of 2 treatments per week.

Q: What’s the cost?

A: The cost varies by practitioner and starts at $1600 for the entire Boost package, and $2400 for the Repair package. Herbal supplements are included in the cost.

Q: Does it hurt?

A: Most patients report little to no pain at all.  And believe it or not, acupuncture is actually incredibly relaxing, which helps with stress and emotional eating.

Q: What results will I get?

A: Our patients report successful weight loss and a new attitude about food! Plus they tell us they sleep better, have more energy, and a better digestion. We’ll take body measurements, before and after pictures, and weigh-ins for you so you can see for yourself!  Boost patients can expect to lose 5-10 pounds in the six weeks.  Repair patients can expect to lose 10-20 pounds in the 12 weeks and can repeat the Repair protocol for continued weight loss.

Q: Who should not have metabolic acupuncture?

A: It is unhealthy to lose more than 10 pounds a month, so our metabolic acupuncture packages are designed for people who are looking to lose no more than 40 pounds in three months.  Metabolic acupuncture cannot force your body to go under a healthy weight, so this is not a good option for a patient who hopes to be a runway model. Uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure, bleeding or bruising disorders are not good candidates for these programs. Metabolic acupuncture should not be performed during pregnancy. We’ll evaluate all of this during your initial consultation.

Q: Are there side effects/risks?

A: Side effects are minimal. Occasionally there may be light bleeding or bruising after a needle is removed.

Q: When is a good time to get Metabolic Acupuncture done?

A: Heading into spring and through the summer are excellent times for weight loss.  These are the times of year that the body is more naturally inclined to drop excess weight.


“After having my second baby, my body wasn’t re-setting and my blood pressure was high.  Heart disease runs in my family and my doctor wanted me to go on meds but when I talked to Senia she suggested that I lose weight and she could help. She had already helped boost my energy and balance my thyroid with acupuncture and herbs so I decided to go for it! Besides the acupuncture, we started with a cleanse which was really hard work, but by eliminating foods that weren’t good for my body my weight dropped more easily. I also identified that sugar was really bad for me—whenever I ate it I had terrible anxiety and more sugar cravings. About two months in, I noticed a big shift in my energy levels and my relationship with food. Others said I look lighter and there was a calmness about me.

“Now three months later, I lost 15 pounds, 2.5 inches of baby weight off my waist, and my blood pressure is down to 114/73! But most of all, I’m more positive at home and work. I feel like I can handle life easier. I own a business and I was able to manage it while my business partner was away on maternity leave. I’ve also been able to manage my life with kids and my husband and his busy schedule since he owns a business too.

“If you’re considering this program, it’s SO worth it! Think of it as a weight loss season so it’s not forever, and then it’s all about maintenance and being in touch with your body again. It’s a new way of living for me and I’m so much happier, calmer and less stressed!”


“The herbal support and acupuncture reinvigorated my efforts for fat loss after feeling that there was no hope.  I have a broken metabolism and it takes me longer to see results, but they are happening!  This program is showing me how good I can feel and I see that this should be a new lifestyle and not just a quick fix. Quick fixes never worked for me anyway.”


“I visited Senia because I was tired of going from doctor to doctor and not getting any answers. She put me on Chinese herbs to strengthen my Qi and digestion since my body was weak. She provided nutritional guidance on foods that would be easy to digest and therefore absorb nutrients and improve my energy. I’ve lost 30 pounds since starting treatment with her!”
