Acupuncture for Quitting Smoking in Hamilton

Acupuncture for Quitting Smoking In Hamilton

The first thing you need to know about using acupuncture to give up smoking is that it plays a complementary role rather than a leading role.  Smokers must first find answers to the following questions: 

Why should I give up smoking?

What harm is it doing to my body?

What harm is it doing to others?

What good does smoking bring?

Once you have clear answers to these questions and you decide, of your own free will rather than because of outside pressure, that you are determined to give up smoking, then and only then can you successfully use acupuncture to give up smoking.

When giving up smoking you may experience a number of symptoms including irritability, headaches, dizziness, cough, sore dry throat, constipation, increased appetite, runny nose, depression, inability to concentrate or sit still, insomnia and craving for cigarettes.  This is what is known as nicotene withdrawal.  When treating patients to help give up smoking, we use the special acupoint "Jie Yan point" (also known as "Tian Mei point") to help smokers control their cravings.  Then, according to the different symptoms you may be suffering from, we include relevant points to bring relief from withdrawal. 

We are opposed to the use of chemicals.  When necessary we combine acupuncture with traditional chinese herbal medicine in order to enhance results.
