Melbourne: A bit of psychological acupuncture might help you to reduce your food cravings and lose weight, according to a Gold Coast-based Bond University researcher.Clinical psychologist Dr Peta Stapleto’s new weight-loss method uses needle-free stimulation of pressure points..Known scientifically as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), or psychological acupuncture, the practice involves tapping pressure points on the body while a person concentrates on not giving in to temptation.Dr Stapleton said food and weight issues were usually "deeply emotional and rarely physiological". "Many current weight loss programs don`t place emphasis on the psychological element of addictive behaviour. In fact, the more time that elapses between the end of a diet and the follow-up, the more weight is regained," the paper quoted her as saying.
