Acupuncture and Weight Loss, Acupuncture for Quitting Smoking
Acupuncture is effective in making it easier to lose and maintain that loss if the patient is willing to change their lifestyle.
Acupuncture for Weight Loss
We treat many people who have had no success in losing weight and achieving their desired body shape and feel. These are patients who have learned that diet fads and pills don’t work and they are tired, frustrated and confused. Acupuncture works by stimulating points that decrease appetite, improve digestion and metabolism, regulate blood sugar and digestive enzymes, and promote relaxation and proper rest. This enables the patient to eat healthier, nutritious foods and focus on exercise and fitness.
Acupuncture for Quitting Smoking
The Acupuncture Center of New Jersey has developed a unique smoking cessation protocol that consists of five acupuncture treatments over 2-3 weeks. We have treated hundreds of patients and have achieved over 70% success rate. Many of these patients have been chronic, heavy smokers for years who have tried and failed with other stop smoking methods.
Acupuncture for Alcoholism, Drug Addiction and Other Addictive Diseases
Acupuncture initially was used in the U.S. and other western countries for treating alcoholics and drug addicts to help them overcome their substance abuse problems. The acupuncturists at the Acupuncture Center of New Jersey use an ear acupuncture technique developed by the National Acupuncture Detox Association (NADA) that has proven very effective for the treatment of alcoholism, drug dependency and other addictive disorders.
