The use of Acupuncture as an alternative approach to smoking cessation has been increasing rapidly. Acupuncture works with other addictions as well, such as alcohol, heroin, crack, drug addiction in general. In fact, acupuncture is often a court mandated treatment for drug addicts because of its ability to reduce cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, anxiety and difficulty concentrating.
Acupuncture is not a magic cure in the treatment of any addiction, including smoking. But, acupuncture is effective in making it easier to quit and remain smoke-free/addiction-free for good.
How Many Treatments Will I Need and How Long Do they Take?
The length, number and frequency of treatments will vary. A typical Acupuncture stop smoking program will consist of three treatments per week for three-four weeks, when the withdrawal symptoms are the strongest. Thereafter once or twice a week for three weeks. In order to insure long-term effectiveness of the treatments, we recommend monthly follow-up visits for four-six months after the initial series. Some symptoms are relieved after the first treatment, while more severe or chronic will require more treatments before the symptoms are relieved.
