How can Acupuncture Help with Smoking Cessation?
Acupuncture treatment has been found to be a very useful tool for fighting smoking addiction. Throughout the course of treatment, we use acupuncture points located in the ear (although several acupuncture points in the hands and feet are also utilized) to stimulate the body to produce natural steroids and release endorphins, helping to curb cravings associated with smoking cessation. Additionally, through regular treatments with our New Jersey medical center, our acupuncturists have found that acupuncture helps patients succeed in quitting by keeping withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, headaches and chills, at bay.
Our Approach to Acupuncture Treatment
At Atlantic Medicine & Wellness, our NJ acupuncturist strives to address the underlying causes of smoking so that we can treat the body accordingly: stress, habitual behaviors, social triggers, and addictive compulsions are often alleviated over time by using acupuncture treatment alone or in conjunction with other pain relief treatments. By integrating multiple modalities, we are able to treat many aspects of smoking addiction. Quitting smoking can be life changing for our patients and their families, and acupuncture has been shown to be an effective alternative for many patients that have unsuccessfully tried other methods.
