Acupuncture for Nicotine Cessation: Safe and Effective

Studies have shown that acupuncture stimulates the release of pain-relieving endorphins and mood-regulating neurotransmitters. These endogenous substances help to alleviate the symptoms of withdrawal from Nicotine. By combining acupuncture with patient education, counseling, and support groups like Nicotine Anonymous, a higher success rate is achieved. 

Preparing to become Nicotine-Free:   

  • Develop a clear intent to stop using nicotine.   
  • Observe what role nicotine products play in your life.  
  • Understand that addiction requires a comprehensive approach.   
  • Please schedule an appointment with our acupuncture practitioners by choosing one of the two treatment options listed below.  

Option 1: Treatment Plan:   

Initial Consultation and 1st treatment-Monday 

2nd treatment-Tuesday   

3rd treatment-Thursday   

Option 2: Treatment Plan:   

Initial Consultation and 1st treatment-Friday   

2nd treatment-Saturday   

3rd treatment-Monday 

Helpful Hints while becoming Nicotine-Free:   

  • Drink plenty of filtered water during the process.   
  • Eating vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and healthy fats in small but frequent meals improves mood and prevents weight gain.   
  • Observe your cravings: they will fade within a few minutes. When they arise, observe the situation around you; before you know it, the craving sensation will pass.   
  • Scrub your skin with a dry brush or loofah to facilitate the cleansing process and help blood circulation.   
  • Avoid alcohol and spending time with other nicotine users so that you are less tempted to use nicotine.   
  • Enjoy a daily walk outside and take deep breaths. When exhaling, gently place your teeth together and exhale with the sound of “sssssssssss.” This sound stimulates the lungs. 

Some possible stumbling blocks to becoming nicotine-free are stress, anxiety, increased food cravings, and depression; acupuncture treatments calm and relax the mind, reducing anxiety and alleviating depressive feelings. 

Congratulations! You are coming back to life more fully!   

Over the next few weeks and months, you may become aware of new smells and tastes, fuller, deeper breathing, and overall wellness and joy. Rejoice in your accomplishments.
