Weight Loss

Dr. Barrett's Weight Loss Program is about Optimizing Lifestyle not Deprivation!

Weight Loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy is Proven and Evidence Based by Thousands of Years of Knowledge.

There are thousands of weight loss programs available. Why chose Weight loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy? Too many weight loss “fad diets” ignore the basics of human biochemistry. Many are designed by poorly qualified people without any medical training. These programs are designed to make money. They also take advantage of people desperate to lose weight over night. Many of these methods leave people weak and undernourished. The first thing to consider when looking at any weight loss program is the credentials of the people behind it. Weight loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy is backed by thousands of years of knowledge and experience. Dr. Barrett has the experience and expertise to make sure it works for you.

Dr. Barrett offers a most comprehensive Weight Loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy program in Los Angeles CA by combining the wisdom of Traditional Medicine with the Science of Modern Biochemistry.

Having trained is both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Modern Western Medicine, Dr. Barrett’s weight loss program gives you the best of both worlds. Weight loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy focuses on two basic fundamentals:

  1. Minimizing Stress
  2. Maximizing Loss of Body Fat & Weight
  3. Body Contouring with Cupping Therapy

Most fad diets focus on quick weight loss that causes loss of water weight and lean muscle matter. The water weight comes right back. But the lean muscle matter will only return with exercise. Most people will quickly return the same weight but with a higher body fat index. Higher body fat indices mean slower metabolisms. Slower metabolisms mean more weight gain by eating the same amounts of food before the diet. Dr. Barrett states, “This is a quick path to depression and not the happy, healthy life people are looking for from a weight loss plan.”

Dr. Barrett will teach you the basics of stress management. He will also teach you proper dieting habits. With Weight loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy, Dr. Barrett’s will rejuvenate your health while preparing your body for weight loss. The results are more energy, less stress, a faster metabolism and less body fat while maintaining lean muscle matter. The result is permanent weight loss and a happier, healthier life.

How Does Body Contouring with Cupping Therapy Work?

Cupping Therapy will increase blood circulation and lymphatic drainage in those “difficult to lose” spots. The mechanics of cupping therapy was proven to increase fat metabolism in targeted areas and some modern applications of the mechanics of cupping have received FDA approval for the process. Areas most frequently targeted are:

  • Gluteal Femoral Folds
  • Thighs above knees
  • Lower Backs
  • Stomachs
  • Upper Arms

Testimonials for Weight Loss w/ Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy

Gregory, Age 54: To Whom It May Concern: I was 6′ 3″ and weighed 300 pounds. As a former athlete, I used to be in decent shape. Then middle age and a sedentary lifestyle added 80 pounds too much to my large frame. Failing at every diet that I had tried, I remained overweight for over 10 years. Then I had a heart attack. Obviously, a change in lifestyle was needed. Then I met Dr. John Barrett and he introduced me to his weight control system. In 6 weeks I lost 16.5 pounds while not having hunger pains nor any other diet related problems. Dr. Barrett explains to you so well, that he in fact teaches you a lifestyle so that you can control your diet. Thanks to him, I now know how to eat properly for weight control.Thanks a million John. Sincerely, Gregory”
