Acupuncture to Quit Smoking
Acupuncture is an effective tool to quit smoking by minimizing cravings, calming the nervous system, and strengthening willpower. If you are motivated and ready to quit, the stimulation of special acupuncture points can empower you to take control and begin a healthy, smoke-free lifestyle. The smoking cessation treatment consists of the placement of very fine acupuncture needles to activate four acupuncture points on the ear. Dr. Kowalski combines the ear points with 5 Element Acupuncture body points to restore you to balance as a whole, which assists you in quitting and in better dealing with your stressors in the long run.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number and frequency of treatments will vary from person to person. Typically, a course of treatment is 10 sessions. Each treatment will last 45 minutes, three times the first week, then twice a week for two weeks, then once a week. Dr. Kowalski will develop a personalized program for your success.
