How Acupuncture Can Help Quit Smoking, Manhattan, New York

Quitting smoking can be an incredibly frustrating challenge; fortunately, you don’t have to attempt it alone. Acupuncture is a painless treatment that offers a natural solution to reduce the craving to nicotine. For centuries, acupuncturists have been helping their clients reduce anxiety, manage pain, and develop healthy behavior. Read on to learn how the ancient practice may help you win the battle against your smoking addiction.

What Is Acupuncture?

AcupunctureThe natural system of medicine uses hair-thin filaments to gently stimulate certain points in the energetic system. Stimulating these acu-points, correct imbalances and remove blockages thereby helping the body and mind to function in a more healthy way. The procedure is pain-free and relaxing.

How Does It Reduce Cravings?

The treatments help to reduce the cravings and create a feeling of relaxation. Using specific points on the ears trigger the cranial nerves which causes a release of endorphins that reduce stress. Lowering your emotional and physical stress helps you quit smoking. The better and happier you feel, the less likely you are to seek relief and comfort in bad habits. 

How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

Frequent visits to your acupuncturist, especially in the first few weeks, achieve the best result. Over time, your cravings will subside and eventually vanish, but while they are strong, regular sessions are needed. Start by booking an appointment for a consultation; during that visit, the acupuncturist will recommend an appropriate and effective course of treatment based on your unique situation.
