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.

Dr. Todd Carnucci is one of the most caring people I have ever met. My family and I have been patients of his for nearly 15 years. He and his staff are the best at that they do.*
Dr. Todd helped me get through my first and only marathon. Not being a runner, he helped me with all of the aches and pains associated with the pounding on the back and joints!*
Westfield Health & Rehabilitation is the best multifaceted center I have ever been to! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. You definitely get the feeling that Dr. Carnucci and his staff personally care about your wellbeing. I highly recommend W H&R for anything from minor aches and pains to post-surgical rehab!*
AMAZING SERVICE.they make me feel so comfortable and every visit is like a relaxing vacation! Definitely recommend.*
Dr. Carnucci has a really great practice. His staff is extremely friendly and took the time to make me feel like they truly cared about me. I grew up in Cranford and whenever I travel back home I make sure to stop to see Dr. Carnucci’s for an adjustment. I highly recommend his practice to anyone who needs chiropractic care or physical therapy.*

This is a one stop wellness center. Dr Todd is outstanding. They now offer acupuncture ( I was a skeptic…no longer). Their physical therapist is excellent. As needed you can get an appointment with several pain management specialists. The office staff is friendly and will try their best to make appointments to fit the lives of the busy man or woman. They have the spinal decompression which will offer tremendous relieve to lower back pain, bulging discs, herniated disc, and sciatica…and I am a walking testament to that. I highly recommend this Doctor and the entire staff.*
My husband and 3 boys are all patients. I highly recommend and trust Dr. Todd Carnucci.*
Dr Todd has changed my life. I’m pain free and could not be happier. Friendly and personable office team makes every visit comfortable and efficient. Could not be happier with Westfield!*
The healing that Dr. Todd and his staff have done not only for me but my family, my grandchildren ages 10, 9, 9 and 2, my daughters, my brother and mother of 82 is AMAZING.*
