CALL IT QUITS! – A Smoking Cessation Program
This smoking cessation program uses acupuncture to break the physical addiction to nicotine and promote detoxification of the body. Participants will understand the physical and psychological nature of nicotine addiction and nutritional supplements will be recommended in order to facilitate the detoxification process.
The acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles. The needles are sterilized and disposable being used only once and discarded. There is nothing injected into the body, the needles are placed in specific points that produce the desired effects.
