12 on Health: Bronx woman sees weight loss transformation with acupressure

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

A Bronx woman says she has experienced a weight loss transformation through acupressure therapy.

Francis Belen says she lost 98 pounds in just her first eight months on the program.

Acupressure is a technique similar to acupuncture, but less invasive in that it only involves hands rather than needles.

She enrolled in a program at Infinite Possibilities in the Bronx.

The program includes a combination of a natural diet consisting of whole foods like fruits, vegetables and fish—along with acupressure sessions.

At her heaviest, Belen says she was 260 pounds, and she needed help to stay focused and keep her food cravings at bay.

Now, she’s a size 6, and it’s something she says she never imagined possible.  

Infinite Possibilities director Eileen Connolly says clients like Belen often see results within the first week.
