Beneficial Role Of Acupuncture In Curbing Smoking Habits


Quitting or curbing the menacing smoking habit is one of the hardest things to do.  Nowadays there are so many options to get rid of this detrimental habit which could turn out to be fatal in most cases. In this respect, acupuncture proves to be highly beneficial and effective in helping break this addictive smoking habit.

Acupuncture involves insertion of very fine, thin needles into body’s specific points, stimulating flow of qi (chee) energy throughout body and regulating body’s natural mechanisms. Needles are inserted very superficially in skin and retained in body whilst patient is taking rest. Acupuncture carried out at Acupuncture Perth, regulates body’s natural energy flow for reducing cravings of nicotine withdrawal, calming mind, easing out anxieties, and for strengthening and benefitting lungs, clearing phlegm, tar and nicotine residue out of lungs.

Smoking cigarette draws warm air deeply into lungs, nicotine hitting bloodstream and working its way into brain enabling us to experience relaxation from stress, anxiety, anger, grief, etc., momentarily though. Acupuncture aids in regulating stuck-up energies and emotions, drifting them along in same manner that deep breaths or few moments of meditations will do. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), emotion pertaining to lungs is grief, and this heavy, melancholic, stuck energy or grief is mitigated by lungs movement as we take a drag off cigarette. It’s imperative to find other ways to move this stuck-up qi, and Acupuncture done at Acupuncture Perth is the only obvious answer and solution!

Acupuncture, specifically ear or ‘auricular acupuncture’ done at Acupuncture Perth, helps to minimize nicotine cravings by stimulating brain receptors that nicotine generally binds to, acting as barrier to cravings for smoking. Ear acupuncture is performed by certified acupuncturists working at Acupuncture Floreat, Perth, or one can buy ‘ear seeds’ which’re tiny morning glory seeds on medical tape stuck on specified ear points. Research auricular acupuncture charts online for knowledge, authenticity and effectiveness, or find out if your community offers an addiction clinic, which’re often free, providing you with short acupuncture session or ear seeds application for dealing with varied conditions.

One of the most significant benefits of an acupuncture session is the way it soothes nerves and minds easing out worries and stress. Acupuncture removes negative feelings like grief, sadness, anxiety, anger out of the body making way for peaceful and restful slumber, falling asleep easier, and sleeping for long duration.

Lastly, acupuncture aids in physically removing tar and nicotine residue from body, enabling lungs to feel lighter, voice less gravely, helps to stop coughing and improving digestion. There’re herbal formulas recommended by acupuncturists at Acupuncture Floreat to heal lungs and abstain from smoking. One of the tried-and-tested formulas embraced by all smokers, ex-smokers, and those on the verge of quitting smoking, is called ‘Yang Yin Qing Fei’. This’s a perfect blend of herbs for clearing out lungs and preventing coughing whilst moistening lungs dryness and treating sore throats experienced by many smokers.
