Most people associate acupuncture with pain relief or relaxation, however, acupuncture can actually be used to help people to quit smoking! There are specific acupuncture points located near the wrist that can be targeted to effectively reduce cigarette cravings by actually changing the way cigarettes taste to the person. This acupuncture point is known as “Tim Mee” and is very powerful.
Acupuncture can also help people to quit smoking in a number of other ways such as reducing cravings, stopping jitters associate with withdrawl and aiding in cleansing the body.
Studies have proven the beneficial effect acupuncture can have on those looking to quit smoking. Specifically, one study assessed more than 800 patients trying to quit smoking and found that acupuncture and hypnotherapy were effective means of smoking cessation.
One of the most powerful benefits of an acupuncture session is the way it calms your mind and eases anxiety. People often smoke to mask feelings they don’t wish to feel or face. Acupuncture helps to safely move these feelings out of the body. People comment that they have more restful sleep, fall asleep easier and sleep longer after acupuncture.
Finally, acupuncture helps to physically remove tar and nicotine residue from the body. This allows the lungs to feel lighter, the voice less gravely, helps stop coughing and improves digestion. There are helpful herbal formulas that your acupuncturist can prescribe for helping heal the lungs and refrain from smoking. One formula that all smokers, ex-smokers and those working on quitting should take is called ‘Yang Yin Qing Fei’. This formula is a perfect balance of herbs to clear out the lungs and stop coughing while moistening the dryness of the lungs and sore throats that many smokers experience.

let me give a HUGE thankful wave of gratitude for Westfield Health and Rehabilitation!! Shana my acupuncturist , after 5 awful years of being in pain with injuries and crazy new symptoms , tons of nerve burns, minor surgeries, useless highly addictive pain meds with terrible side effects, painful PT and all things unsuccessful, acupuncture has improved my life dramatically!
Shana is highly knowledgeable , well trained , excellent at what she does. She also is stellar with her bedside manner, actually everyone there is! To find a health practitioner that actually listens and is genuinely concerned about your quality of life in itself is priceless and makes a HUGE difference. By recommending homeopathic treatments, giving me the information to also add amino acids and other vitamins to my daily regimen is so beneficial. I notice small improvements. While I still have bad days, they haven’t been as debilitating as I have had in the past! So a huge THANK you for changing and improving the quality of my life!*

Dr. Todd & his staff are the best! As an RN for nearly 40 years, I am very selective in who I trust my healthcare to. Dr. Todd’s staff are friendly, professional, & all work together as a great team.
