How does quitting smoking work via acupuncture?

When it comes to quitting smoking through acupuncture, both the physical and psychological aspects of the addiction are considered. Typically, the withdrawal symptoms experienced during the period of quitting smoking are the reason why people reach for a cigarette again. These withdrawal symptoms manifest as overeating, irritability, sleep problems, and stress. Acupuncture for quitting smoking aims to reduce these withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to persist. We advise quitting smoking at least one day before the treatment. The acupuncturist uses small needles placed on acupuncture points on the body. For extra support, you will be given stay-put needles in the ear. The treatment is painless and helps you continue your smoking cessation journey with full energy and perseverance.
