Unique Programs from Solea Wellness

Weight Loss

Acupuncture – $89 for an exam (diagnostic) + personalized treatment plan + diet plan + detox (Hyper T) + 1 acupuncture session.

Weight loss refers to the reduction in weight and fat volume, as well as the stimulation of the body’s natural detoxification process. All of these benefits are bundled in a single acupuncture procedure.

How does it work?

  • You sign up for a session with our Chinese expert.
  • During the first visit, they take your pulse and analyze it to determine your health condition (detecting inflammation and potential causes of obesity, such as overeating). This isn’t fantasy — it’s reality! Come and see it for yourself.
  • They then immediately devise a personal program (treatment plan), outlining step-by-step what to do to lose weight (Vitamin IV Therapy, HyperT Pro, dietary recommendations).
  • Afterwards, they conduct an acupuncture session. This helps to curb your appetite, burn fat, and jumpstart your metabolism.
  • After the session, the specialist may recommend HyperT Pro to reinforce and sustain the effects.
  • Visible results, in the form of reduced fat volume, can be noticeably seen after just a few acupuncture sessions.

Anti Aging

Acupuncture – $89 for an exam (diagnostic) + personalized treatment plan + detox (Hyper T) + 1 acupuncture session.

Anti-aging is the best solution for smooth skin after 35. You won’t need to regularly get injections, the effects of which disappear after the treatment dissolves. 

Thanks to our procedures, your face will appear more toned, youthful, and well-groomed. How do we achieve this? Through improving blood and lymph flow, and naturally stimulating collagen and elastin production. Say goodbye to signs of aging and hello to a rejuvenated appearance. Schedule your appointment today and discover your natural beauty.

How does acupuncture therapy work?

Acupuncture is the oldest method of Chinese traditional medicine, used to treat many diseases without pills or side effects.

Acupuncture needles

The World Health Organization has officially recommended acupuncture as an effective therapy for over 100 diseases. The effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of 29 listed diseases has been confirmed by clinical studies following all the rules of modern evidence-based medicine. In other cases, the positive results of acupuncture have been confirmed in practice but require additional research.

The essence of acupuncture is the influence of the finest sterile needles on the biologically active points, which triggers regenerative processes.

What is the therapeutic effect of acupuncture?

The ancient Chinese teachings state that energy meridians run through the entire human body. Life energy Qi circulates through them. Stagnation occurs when the energy flow is disrupted. The disease begins to develop in the organ closest to the meridian in the area of stagnation.

1. Pain-relieving effects

Acupuncture stimulates the endorphin production by the cerebral cortex, which gives an analgesic effect. The effect of acupuncture is equal to pharmacy analgesics.

2. Anti-inflammatory effects

Acupuncture triggers the production of natural corticosteroids, which have powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic effects.

3. Improvement of the psycho-emotional state

Acupuncture increases the production of serotonin and dopamine—natural hormones of happiness and pleasure.

The needle points are selected by a health care practitioner based on the diagnosis results.
