HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE HELP YOU QUIT SMOKING CIGARETTES?

Trying to quit cigarettes is one of the most challenging moves you can make. Fortunately, there is an all-natural and effective way to help you ease your nicotine cravings and get over the urge to smoke. Here at Manhattan Acupuncture Clinic, we want to help you quit smoking. 

HOW CAN I USE ACUPUNCTURE TO QUIT SMOKING CIGARETTES?

Acupuncture to quit smoking cigarettes is backed by medical research as a way to combat addiction to nicotine. This treatment modality influences your energy flow and nervous system by regulating your stress, heart rate, and mood. Acupuncture can also release endorphins that act as natural painkillers to help you overcome irritation and tension as you quit smoking. 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF ACUPUNCTURE FOR SMOKING CESSATION?

When you get acupuncture for smoking cessation our licensed acupuncturist, Alida P. van Heerden, will identify the acupuncture point called “Tim Mee,” as well as other points associated with smoking. Once acupuncture is used on this area of your body, it begins the process of helping you quit. However, you will also need to rebalance your body, heal your lungs, and combat cravings, which are associated with routines and habits. To help your body heal after smoking, you can use acupuncture to improve your circulation and increase energy flow.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I VISIT MANHATTAN ACUPUNCTURE CLINIC TO QUIT CIGARETTES?

Alida P. van Heerden, L.Ac. is an experienced drug and addiction specialist who knows personally the reality of addiction.  She will work with you to discuss your addiction to smoking, and develop a treatment plan to stop smoking with acupuncture. You will likely need more than one acupuncture treatment to find balance and healing as you quit cigarettes.
