The Human Mind-Body Connection
Losing weight is not just diet based rather it includes other various health conditions to be resolved that are going on in the body (More Info). Once an amount of weight is lost, maintaining the current weight requires continuation of this lifestyle change the individual has made to initially lose it. In an article published by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine the largest ongoing randomized control trial of an energy psychology intervention was reviewed. In a cohort of adult subjects they were categorized into an acupressure intervention and a self-directed social support group. The acupressure group utilized the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) by self administration. The acupressure group’s results would support positive findings that its use as a weight-loss maintenance tool could be applied in a variety of care settings, control food cravings, and reduce stress levels.
