Cape Gazette BUSINESS &amp; REAL ESTATE FRIDAY, JANUARY 3- MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014 35 Acu-Weight Loss and Fitness opens in Lewes Specialist says acupuncture can reduce anxiety, depression By Molly MacMillan mollymac@capegazette.com Acupuncture therapy can help clients detoxify and lose weight, says Les Binnix of Acu-Weight Loss and Fitness. Binnix is a licensed clinical therapist and resident acupunc- ture specialist. By inserting tiny, minimally in- vasive needles at defined points on a client's body, Binnix said, a trained clinician can change the flow of energy, reducing stress and the desire to misuse food or drugs. A practicing mental health counselor for nearly 20 years, Binnix said since he began of- fering acupuncture therapy in addition to traditional individual and group therapies, hehas seen clients reap physical and mental rewards, drug-free. "When people take medication for anxiety or depression, they are changing their chemical pro- cess so they feel better," Binnix said. Acupuncture does the same thing, he said. The treatment changes the chemical processes so patients feel better, he said. Acupuncture, a traditional form of Chinese medicine, uses thin needles, inserted at specific points along the body, to realign energy flow, he said. Binnix offers detox acu-ther- apy sessions in Lewes and at a satellite office in Bethany Beach. His practice includes mental health, anxiety and addiction re- lief as well as the recent addition of treatments to improve weight management. During weight-loss sessions, the specialist said five acupunc- ture points are activated by the insertion of painless, sterile nee- dles along meridians, or energy channels, in the ear. These points are activated to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, which are often the same triggers that accompany overeating and food addiction, Binnix said. "Unlike medications and appetite suppressants that people take," he said, "acupunc- ture does the same thing, and there's no side effects." Drugs and food can activate endorphins, the neurotransmit- "UNLIKE MEDICATIONS AND APPETITE SUPPRESSANTS THAT PEOPLE TAKE, ACUPUNCTURE DOES THE SAME THING, AND THERE'S NO SIDE EFFECTS. - LES BINNIX, ACUPUNCTURE SPECIALIST AT ACU-WEIGHT LOSS AND FITNESS ters that register excitement, stimulation and pleasure, some- times leading to abuse. In a state of addiction, Binnix said, the brain no longer registers natural endorphins released by the pituitary gland, instead seek- ing out the addictive substance. He said acupuncture therapy can change the body'sflow ofen- )For more information: www. acu-weilbssandfibless. con1 . ergy, enabling an addiction to be resolved and allowing the body to restore the natural production of endorphins. "The reaction has been really, really awesome. People notice a huge change in their stress and anxiety level, and the emotion- al part changing is what really needs to happen first," Binnix said. "Acupuncture is all-natu- ral." For more information, visit www.acu-weightlossandfitness. com or call 302-344-5609. The Lewes office is at 1682 Savannah Road, Suite 5.
