Addictions


Discover How our Traditional Chinese Treatments Can Help With a Variety of Addictions

Acupuncture helps to facilitate drug withdrawal by calming the nervous system, improving mood, restoring appetite, reducing irritability, relieving headaches and body aches, and accelerating the detoxification of drug compounds.

Withdrawal from nicotine as well as other drugs (alcohol, speed, cocaine, heroin, narcotic pain killers, anti-anxiety drugs) can be facilitated and eased by acupuncture.

Empirical, clinical research has shown that the most effective acupuncture points for facilitating and accelerating withdrawal from addictive substances are located on the external ear. And when the ear point treatments are combined with body points, the results are even better.

For smoking cessation, about four to ten treatments, administered every other day, are usually adequate.
