Dr T. Voronina combining established treatments such as Intermittent Hypoxic Training (IHT) with Su Jok acupuncture as well. This type of acupuncture stimulates the part of the brain that is the "problem-zone" or pathological dominants. In this way improved circulation in the "target-zone" is provided.

How it works
Acupuncturists see weight gain as a sign that the body’s energy (known as qi or chi) is out of balance, they will aim to balance your qi by pinpointing (sorry !) the exact places along the meridians (energy pathways of the body) that need stimulating.
What happened ?
“Dr Voronina put needles in various parts of my body and also some in my ears; the needles in my ears were left in. They didn’t hurt at all. I had a toxic headache after 48 hours, but that was the only side effect. The acupuncture simply made the hunger pangs go away - in fact, I couldn’t even bear the smell of alcohol (and I love wine). I lost a pound a day for the first ten days followed by a slower weight loss.”
Most suitable for:
Those who like swift results - acupuncture can have almost immediate effects. Although the procedure isn’t generally painful, it’s not suitable for the needle-phobic.
