Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for
your health and the health of those around you. If you have tried to quit in
the past or this is your first time, you may already know that you can use all
the help you can get.
Quitting can be very difficult due to the
physical as well as the psychological symptoms of withdrawal. Restlessness,
jitters, cravings and irritability are common complaints among those trying to
quit. Many people start smoking again because of these withdrawal symptoms
According to the National Acupuncture
Detoxification Association (NADA), the acupuncture protocol for smoking
cessation was especially designed for smoking cessation and other dependencies.
NADA carefully developed and extensively tested this protocol. It is used
around the world to help people deal with and recover from substance abuse.
The NADA protocol has been shown in a
variety of clinical settings to be beneficial in the process of detoxification
from substance abuse as well as to help with the emotional, physical and
psychological attributes involved in addictions.
We use the NADA protocol in our Smoking
Cessation Program. Additionally, we customize each session by addressing any
individual symptoms you have.
Each session lasts about 30 minutes and is
given once per week for six consecutive weeks. After the six week period, you
may or may not need additional treatments.
Normally, a series of six treatments would
cost $450, but we discount the smoking cessation treatment program to only
$360. That's the same amount you would spend on a pack-a-day habit in less than
two months! The smoking cessation
package must be paid in full prior to receiving the treatments in order to
receive the discounted rate. Any unused sessions will not be refunded. Single,
pay-as-you-go sessions are available, but it is strongly advised that you take
advantage of the discounted six-session smoking cessation program to get the
most out of the treatments and increase your chance of success.
