Stopping Smoking or Alcohol

Acupuncture can help!

The first and foremost aim of acupuncture is: to  promote a person’s maximum state of well-being.

Acupuncture seeks to balance a person, not only physically but on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

It strengthens the will (kidneys); detoxifies the body and eases stress (liver); gives determination (gallbladder); relieves cravings (spleen); calms the mind and heart (pericardium and heart); promotes good sleep (heart);  promotes good appetite and good digestion (spleen and stomach); promotes good elimination (intestines); it eases emotional disturbances such as anxiety, overthinking, worry, grief, fear, anger and frustration.

Used consciously as a tool to see you through the tough process of stopping smoking or drinking acupuncture, given by a caring practitioner, can be of great benefit and even solace. Together with acupuncture you should exercise – walking is sufficient in the beginning – and do some deep breathing.  Deep  breathing, relaxation techniques and reiki are included during my acupuncture session and these can be practised at home.

Giving up is not easy.  It requires determination, fortitude, self-love and patience.  It requires new attitudes, new ways of behaving and new practices to prevent relapse.
