Break the Cycle and Quit Smoking Forever

Are you ready to quit?  We can help!  Our quit smoking acupuncture or laser program will help cure your body's reactions associated with nicotine withdrawal.  Our acupuncture treatments can help by minimizing your physical and emotional discomfort and stop your cravings.  Acupuncture and acupressure intercepts messages sent by the brain to the body that demand more nicotine, thereby disrupting the addictive process.

Smokers who go without a cigarette will often have many strong physical and emotional reactions to nicotine deprivation, which can be treated successfully with acupuncture. Do you suffer from:

Anxiety
Irritability
Restlessness
Nervousness
Difficulty Concentrating
Poor Sleep
Cravings
Appetite
Headaches
Fatigue
Night Sweats

What are your options ?

Our acupuncture program is designed to overcome these powerful "side effects" of nicotine withdrawal by stimulating greater relaxation, increased energy and a balanced regulatory system using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, ultimately increasing your resolve to forgo tobacco and improving your health.

We now offer LASER acupuncture !  Laser acupuncture is a natural way to help curb the cravings for nicotine.  It offers relief while you are struggling with the cravings and fatigue, and unlike prescriptions acupuncture has no side effects such as nightmares or depression.  The laser and ear pellets will target the craving centers of the brain and help you access your natural endorphins.  Acupressure is often utilized during the quit smoking program and we focus on 5 specific acupuncture points on the ear.  One affects the parasympathetic nervous system and the others affect the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys.  By activating these 5 points through acupressure, your body will become more relaxed, while also becoming more effective at cleansing your system of any toxins.

The program has a very good success rate. Most smokers become ex-smokers with 1 - 2 acupuncture treatments weekly over a 1 - 3 month period. Determination is key, of course, but the right help can be the determining factor.  Direct billing is available for select insurance plans.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine not only reduces the craving for cigarettes, but it minimizes the anxiety, stress and discomfort of nicotine withdrawal while improving your lung function.

The multitude of health risks to smokers and to those around them is well documented. There are proven claims that smoking is responsible for more than 400,000 + deaths each year, resulting in cancer and a huge list of lung illnesses.

Despite these deadly consequences, every smoker can attest to the great challenge in overcoming nicotine withdrawal. In Canada, millions will try to quit smoking this year, many will fail, help is just a phone call away.
