Yes, acupuncture used with herbs, and sometimes massage, can help regulate metabolism by rebalancing or re-harmonizing your systems.

Yes, acupuncture can regulate metabolic rate. Many patients experienced weight loss with acupuncture management. The mechanism is very complicated. Each acupoint can acts on multiple organs at the same time. In modern words, acupuncture can regulate and adjust the level of multiple neurotransmitters and hormones synergistically, resulting in profound effects on nerve system and multiple other organs at the same time. Usually, heavy individual can loss about 2 lbs per week with treatment of acupuncture twice per week; about reduction of 6 to 8 lbs per months in the first two months.
Of course.

Hello, acupuncture can regulate metabolism.
In a roundabout way, yes. We have some excellent studies that show acupuncture regulating blood sugar and insulin levels, hormones used to signal hunger and fullness as well as the release of digestive enzymes. We also know that acupuncture promotes the parasympathetic "rest and digest" portion of the autonomic nervous system. We also know that acupuncture tends to promote homeostatic mechanisms in the body and acts to normalize lots of different functions.

Is acupuncture going to directly increase/decrease metabolic rate? There's no evidence that I'm aware of which would indicate this is the case.
