TESTIMONIAL: ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT FOR SMOKING
Gary W., Accountant (age 56)
I’d been smoking 5 years when Andrew first
treated me for the 2nd time in 1989 with acupuncture to
help me quit smoking, he asked me why I picked up another cigarette
after stopping only for 6 hours the first time. He was incredulous
when I told him that my destiny was to smoke for 21 years, just like
my Dad, but that being able to remember what it was like to be a
non-smoker, even for just 6 hours was wonderful.
So, for the next 16 years, Andrew and Jannie
treated me, adding needle treatments for sinusitis and bronchial
problems with herbal oils and herbs. And while they did get a bit
frustrated with my inability to stay off cigarettes, they never
became angry or went over the line; they stayed supportive and
hopeful the whole time, even when I suffered from the most rancid
breath ever, a strong allergic response to smoking.
Whenever I’d suffer from stress problems and my
smoking went up from 11 cigarettes to a pack or a pack-and-a half
(11à20, 30) a day, I’d
come see them, get acupuncture, and drop back down to a 9-11 a day.
And the relaxation benefits of needling lasted me at least 3 days,
improving my home and work life.
I finally quit smoking August 13, 2005 at
8:20am, after seriously planning the event for a year. Over a 3 week
period, I cut the number of cigarettes down and down, I took off a
couple of days from work, did some yoga and lots of deep breathing,
and then got acupuncture, kept my hands in my lap, took a bit of
aspirin, did a lot more deep breathing, smoked my last one, and
didn’t buy any more ever again. Smoking impulses came and went as
chemical processes rebalanced themselves. Retraining the hand-mouth
neural pathways was very challenging, as was throwing away cigarette
lighters. I went on a week long vacation to Missouri to break free
from the patterns associated with work, convenience store, etc. I
developed tools of the imagination to help free me from the smoking
burden, like imagining a Samurai Warrior in front of me with a sword
parrying away, defending me against, and rejecting unhealthy
thoughts…bap, bap, bap, just like I did when I was a child.
And more than a year later, the smoking impulse
still occasionally hits, but the smokers’ areas outside my building
stinks worse and worse, and the attraction continues to lessen.
My body loved the way acupuncture made it feel
from the very first time. Meditative, forced to be still. Attentive
to relaxation responses and breath releases. Aligned inside and
outside. Like 2 yoga sessions back to back. Or a couple of hours of
massage. Nice, very nice.

Acupuncture has proven very effective in
helping people to quit smoking. Our program consists of acupuncture
treatments plus herbs. We insert needles in the body and ear. After
each treatment, we may place "seed needles" in one ear, and instruct
the patient to press the seeds quite hard to relax the diaphram and
reduce the desire to smoke.
Frequently, with nervous smokers, we may
recommend herbs to calm the mind.
Of course, we do not guarantee your success,
but our percentage rate of smokers who quit and remain free of the
addiction is quite high. Many people are able to greatly reduce or
quit after only one treatment, but our experience is that it is very
easy to pickup the habit again within a couple of weeks. This is why
we recommend a minimum of three treatments, with herbs.
The first few days after the initial treatment
are crucial to quitting. If the desire to smoke becomes unbearable
during this period, we recommend you call us immediately for an
appointment for acupuncture.
Excess coffee and alcohol play a part in the
smoking addiction, and we recommend that smokers seriously consider
cutting down or stopping this use also to facilitate their quitting
