Acupuncture to Quit Smoking

Using acupuncture to quit smoking is a technique that people are trying to use to kick the habit of smoking altogether. Acupuncture is a technique that was developed in China more than 2000 years ago.

It is basically the insertion of needles into specific body points, which helps improve one's health. Laser therapy is based on the same acupuncture principles where the pulsating light of the laser is applied to acupressure points of the body. No needles are used.

This technique helps those coming from surgery and chemotherapy by reducing nausea and vomiting. It also helps relieve pain.

Many people are still looking at the effectiveness of this method in helping smokers quit. It was used to try to help reduce withdrawal symptoms from the nicotine addiction.

But so far, studies are showing that a sham acupuncture (placebo) works as well as the real acupuncture for smoking cessation. So that means that acupuncture doesn't do anything to help you quit. It only helps you relieve pain and nausea.
