National Quit Smoking Day 2011 is March 9th.
Is this your year?
You already know how smoking can affect your health, and you have probably heard that acupuncture can help you quit smoking. It's true! Acupuncture is used with good success to help people stop smoking, and is often a court-mandated treatment for drug addicts because of its ability to reduce cravings and alleviate withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, anxiety and difficulty concentrating.
While no acupuncturist can actually make you quit smoking, they can use what is known at the NADA Five Needle Protocol to help you deal with the stress, cravings, and discomfort that can come with the process of quitting. Katelyn Decker, L.Ac.is now offering a ten treatment package at Zama, which includes ten thirty-minute treatments for $280. Also available is a five-treatment package for $160.
You'll need to come in twice a week for five weeks for the best results, with occasional follow-up treatments depending on your individual needs. The treatments, which serve to readjust the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, will support you to naturally overcome the addiction and move towards a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. The tiny needles are left in the ears for about fifteen to twenty minutes, while you relax in a chair or on the treatment table and listen to peaceful music.
Katelyn may also prescribe Chinese herbs in order to help you cope with the physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. You'll love the feeling of accomplishment and improved well-being!
