Can acupuncture help you lose weight? A new study suggests it can.

A study conducted last year in Hong Kong suggests that acupuncture may have an effect on the body's ability to lose weight.

The mechanism of acupuncture may be that the stimulation to the serotonin and beta endorphin will suppress appetite and increase lipolysis activity, resulting in weight loss."
