Kick the habit with acupuncture

Acupuncture treatment is a very powerful tool for removing smoking addiction. It is a very effective and reliable method for quitting smoking, which has no side effects at all.

Millions of euro are spent every year on different types of medications for smoking cessation programmes. However, not all these programmes are beneficial. This is because they do not provide any incentive to quit smoking. Acupuncture provides the extra impetus to the smoker to quit smoking for good. But how does acupuncture really work?

Acupuncture uses small needles of different lengths and sizes to stimulate the skin in a particular area of the human body. The area for stimulation is chosen corresponding to meridian or pathway that provides energy to the affected body field or area. In the case of smoking cessation, needles are inserted in the areas that will affect energy flow to the mouth, lungs, and respiratory system as well as parts of the brain that generate cravings for tobacco smoke.

It is proved in studies that smokers who are given acupuncture treatment have less desire to smoke and their smoking actually decreases after the treatment of acupuncture. It has been proven over and over again that people who receive acupuncture treatment are twice as likely to quit smoking.

But, it is also important that you follow some simple things to receive the full benefit of the acupuncture treatment.

They are:

1 ) A smoker receiving acupuncture treatment to kick the habit must get it twice a week, for three weeks without any gap, for the treatment to be fully effective.

2 ) The smoker getting the medication will be taught to do self acupressure on ears in order to reinforce the treatment and help cravings to pass.

3 ) It is always better to use this method with other therapies such as nicotine replacement therapy or support groups.
