 Do Chinese needles help you lose weight?

A reader asks: Does Chinese needles have a role in weight loss? Dr. Nevin Helmi Abu Al-Saud, professor in the Department of Research and Applications of Complementary Medicine at the National Research Center, replied: Chinese acupuncture is one of the areas of alternative medicine, which falls under chinese people's treatment, which also includes cupping, herbal therapy, massage and food, an ancient treatment. It dates back about 5,000 years, and after it disappeared it re-emerged to become one of the most popular remedies.
