Smoking is a strong, complicated addiction with three parts: addiction to nicotine, habit and emotions. You need the best tools to help with the physical and emotional symptoms. Acupuncture for quitting smoking is a great resource to help you succeed.
Acupuncture has been used to help smoking cessation for a long time. Many people have had success and research is also supporting these claims. Acupuncture is a technique derived from traditional Chinese medicine that uses tiny needles to stimulate certain points on the body. It helps with quitting smoking by stopping jitters, curbing cravings, lessening irritability and restlessness, increaseing relaxation and helping detoxify the body.
Although acupuncture for smoking cessation makes it easier to quit on your own, you will still need to make a strong commitment to quitting as the effect may take a few sessions to build up. Once your course of treatment is complete, you should not feel physical cravings and you may notice a rapid improvement in your respiratory health.
We have grasped a set of acupuncture points which are particularly effective at helping to quit smoking. By stimulating these set acupuncture points, we improve the circulation and the ‘ying and yang’ balance, as well as promoting the flow of ‘qi’. A specific Chinese medicine formula is also used to eliminate toxins within the body and increase treatment success. A typical course of treatment requires 4 to 10 sessions, 2 to 3 sessions per week.
