STOP SMOKING PROGRAM
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE STOP SMOKING?
Acupuncture has been practiced for centuries in Europe and Asia, and is now a highly effective treatment for breaking the smoking habit. Acupuncture is currently being used in several Boston hospitals and clinics for many addictions, and is now available in this area.
The nicotine in tobacco is a Central Nervous System stimulant and is highly addictive. When you stop smoking, uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and cravings occur.
Acupuncture directly treats the brain and nervous system and relieves the withdrawal symptoms and discomfort. Smoking creates tar and nicotine buildup and directly effects the Respiratory System, Heart and Digestive System. Acupuncture corrects the functions of these organs and systems and stimulates the body's own healing process.
ANYONE WHO IS HAVING DIFFICULTY STOPPING SMOKING SHOULD TRY ACUPUNCTURE

It takes 10-14 days to physically withdraw from smoking. Habitual dependence can take longer. Acupuncture helps reduce 75-100% of the tobacco cravings and other withdrawal symptoms.

DO THE EFFECTS ENDURE?
Without Acupuncture, most smokers typically resume the habit days, weeks or months after quitting. Acupuncture helps restore normal health and increase the chances of success.
The ex-Smoker feels more satisfied, balanced, and optimal, without the need for stimulants. There is less desire to smoke and the taste of tobacco becomes unappealing.
