One study conducted at the University of Oslo, Norway, found that Acupuncture significantly reduced the desire to smoke five years after the initial treatment. The study subjects also reported that cigarettes tasted worse than before treatment and that the treatments had effectively reduced their taste for tobacco. Acupuncture has helped turn a growing number of cigarette smokers into permanent ex-smokers. Our treatments take all of your symptoms into account and balance the energy/dopamine within the body to optimise health and emotional stability.
The length, number, and frequency of Acupuncture treatments will vary to stop smoking. Our typical treatments last about an hour, with the patient being treated once a week. Some withdrawal symptoms are relieved after the first treatment, while some heavy or long term smokers may require multiple treatments. The Acupuncture Stop smoking program will often consist of 1 – 6 treatments scheduled in the first few weeks, followed occasionally by monthly treatments if you need them.
