Quit Smoking with Acupuncture Now

Why it is SO important to Quit Smoking NOW!…

Because we find ourselves in the middle of a PANDEMIC Now.


Pandemics can be difficult times to break bad habits because,

well we want to make ourselves feel better

by Self-Soothing.


Yes, I agree.

By the way, it is my opinion that we need to find a replacement addiction (that is healthy)


It is still important to stop smoking now rather than putting it off until later because


Smoking Lowers Your Immunity.

Your Body Has a First Line of Defense against inhaled pathogens and particulates.

They are tiny Hairs called Cilia.

These Beauties are in Your Lungs.


Cilia filter the air We Breathe.

Think of them as an Extra Face Mask of Defense

that Your Lungs are Constantly Wearing!

They Dance in a Rhythmic Waving Motion, back and forth to Protect Us…


Unless You Smoke.

Then these Poor little Cilia are Matted Down with the Tar from Tobacco Inhaled in Your Lungs.

Cilia try to break free from the tar that is sticking to them (but eventually cannot).


This failed filtering system opens you up to being invaded by pathogens.

We are in the middle of a Pandemic.

Now is a GREAT time to Quit Smoking.


The good news is, Acupuncture Can Help You to Quit Smoking

and to Continue to Quit Smoking.


Acupuncture helps with:

  • Craving
  • Detox
  • Mood
  • Relaxation


How Many Treatments are Typical for Smoking Cessation?


Typically my patients are smoke-free within (3) acupuncture sessions.

Some need more.

Most need about (3) treatments with acupuncture.


How Long Does an Acupuncture Session Take?

Acupuncture is about 20-30 minutes of you lying there with needles in.

First appointments take about 60 minutes with some questions and answers

to be sure we are both on the same page about expectations from you and me.

Return appointments last about 30-45 minutes, again 20-30 minutes of actual acupuncture needles in.
