Ask Nurse Colleen: Quit smoking with acupuncture?

Absolutely, you can quit the habit and become smoke-free and healthier using painless acupuncture.  Smoking is one of the hardest addictions to kick and sometimes it takes several attempts before you actually give up the habit, for life. As you are already aware, there are many reasons to quit.

Some of the largest stumbling blocks to becoming smoke-free are the stress, anxiety and depression associated with quitting. Fortunately, acupuncture treatments are quite successful at calming and relaxing the mind, reducing anxiety and alleviating depressive feelings.  To help you succeed I use laser points on the arm and beads applied to the ears which requires no needles.

After assessing each individual, additional acupuncture points may be included which help suppress appetite, repair and heal organs and reduce cravings. Acupuncture is an effective strategy to help you kick the habit forever as well as yielding enormous benefits to obtain balance and well-being.
