Is there any one in this forum who has well experienced in increasing weight/appetite by acupuncture (in persons without any hormonal/metabolic abnormalities). I will appreciate if you share your experience and knowledge in this respect.

Good appetite and normal weight are some of the marks for good health and balanced metabolism. If this is not the case, restoring the balance, harmonizing the organs and the emotional state usually results in improved appetite and gaining weight - for those who have lacked it in the first place. However, if you wish to amplify this specific aspect in your treatment (along with restoring the overall balance of your patient), you could consider tonifying the spleen and harmonizing the stomach using such points as:
B-20/ St-36/ Sp-3 and Ren-12
