Smoking Cessation

Acupuncture can assist you in quitting smoking by helping reduce cravings, balance your body systems, and reduce stress.  You will probably need to incorporate some additional tools for complete success. The plan includes:

  • Acupuncture
  • Reprogram your brain using visualization/meditation
  • Focus on eating a healthy diet and drinking enough water
  • Adaptogen herbs

Acupuncture to help you physically withdraw from smoking 

You can use acupuncture while you go ‘cold turkey’, or in conjunction with the patch or gum, or you can gently reduce the amount you smoke by half each time you come to an acupuncture session until you are able to quit completely.  This can be accomplished in about 5-6 appointments (alternating full appointments with brief appointments) over about two – three weeks.

Example:

Session 1 – full session            20 cigarettes

Session 2 – brief session         10 cigarettes

Session 3 – full session            5 cigarettes

Session 4 – brief session         2 cigarettes

Session 6 – full session            non-smoker

 

Brief sessions are 30 minutes for $35 and must be combined with full sessions.
