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.

The researchers suggest that the anti-inflammatory effects of cytokine regulation and concomitant antioxidant effects may be responsible for prolonged clinical benefits from acupuncture.
