smoking-signThe discomfort of nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as nervousness, irritability, tension and cravings can be effectively treated with Acupuncture. Properly administered Acupuncture in the context of a well planned and complete program is the only therapy which demonstrates a powerful ability to provide relief for withdrawal symptoms allowing the patient to quit smoking naturally.

Safe and Effective

Acupuncture can safely and effectively help you quit using nicotine. Acupuncture stimulates the brain to release endorphins which produce a profoundly soothing effect. The stimulated “endorphins” can help the body system to cope better during stressful situations. Because of this the aggravation of nicotine withdrawal cravings and anxiety can be greatly reduced in intensity, duration and frequency. Thus

getting  through withdrawal, an otherwise impossible task , can become quite  manageable and in most cases, relatively easy. Our success rate is 80%.
