 How Does Acupuncture Help you Stop Smoking?

Acupuncture takes all of your symptoms into account and aims at balancing the energy within the body to optimize your health. 

The acupuncture treatments look to help with cravings and withdrawal symptoms, anxiety, insomnia and restlessness. All symptoms that people commonly complain about when they quit. It also aids in relaxation and detoxification.

Usually a combination of points in the ears and body points will be used. In between treatments, small seeds can be taped to the acupuncture points in the ear. When a cigarette craving hits, gently pressing on the seeds stimulates the acupuncture points to calm the mind and eliminate the craving.

New Research – Acupuncture for Cigarette Smoke Lung Damage

New research finds that acupuncture heals injuries to the lungs due to cigarette smoke exposure. Acupuncture demonstrated a significant reduction in anti-inflammatory biochemicals suggesting that it may be effective in treating the resultant COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The study discovered that acupuncture reduces levels of inflammatory related cytokines, immunomodulating cell-signaling protein molecules. The researchers suggest that the anti-inflammatory effects of cytokine regulation and concomitant antioxidant effects may be responsible for prolonged clinical benefits from acupuncture.

  1. Hi
    I am trying very hard to find an acupuncturist who uses one session to insert a number of needles for the first session, then I walk away with a tiny drawing pin like thingy stuck in the inside top part of my right ear. When I want a cigarette I just twiddle it and the need for a cigarette disappears instantly. This is kept in for two weeks, then removed with the last session where a number of needles are inserted about my chest, that’s it. I have done this twice in the past. the first was successful for 10 years, then the second for 17 years. Can you help me this way please. I know it works.
