Stop Smoking with Acupuncture

Smoking is not only an unpleasant habit, but also a big danger for your health.  Cigarettes contain hundreds of chemicals, including known carcinogenic compounds (cancer-causing) and many other toxins such as: nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, and arsenic.

Millions of smokers attempt to quit on a daily basis.  However, many of them are unsuccessful due to nicotine’s powerful addiction effects.  Most of them are required to attempt several times or turn to conventional methods in using drugs with heavy side effects.

Acupuncture offers an alternative approach to smoking cessation because of its ability to reduce cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms such as: irritability, anxiety, and attention deficiency.  The treatments balance the body’s energy and optimize health.

The needles are inserted into various points on the ears and body.  In between sessions, small pallets are often taped to acupoints on the ear to stimulate inhibition of cigarette cravings upon gentle pressing of the acupoints.

Acupuncture is not a panacea or a magic cure in the treatment of any addiction, including smoking.  However, it does offer an effective alternative supplement in quitting and remaining smoke-free for good.
