Auriculotherapy (also called Auricular Therapy) is a proven, effective
tool to help you quit smoking by minimizing cravings and calming the nervous
system. This tool works on any nicotine related habit. Chew, nicotine gum,
e-cigarettes (they contain nicotine) etc. Nicotine is an addictive chemical
found in cigarettes.
Our Auriculotherapy procedure uses a very mild, electronic stimulation
on the outside of both ears. This treatment is similar to ear acupuncture
but it uses no needles. The actual treatment takes 10 to 15 minutes.
When you first start smoking, your body tells you it's a bad idea
by causing nausea, coughing, and dizziness. As you continue to smoke, the
nicotine causes the body to close down these receptors, creating an addiction.
These points, when electronically stimulated, send a message to the brain
that acts like a reset button for your nicotine receptors. The nicotine
receptors open back up eliminating withdrawal symptoms caused by nicotine
Our procedure makes you feel like you just don't need nicotine. This
allows you to focus on changing your habits and lifestyle effectively.
In order to successfully stop smoking you must break the habits associated
with your nicotine addiction. We teach a very simple and effective method to
overpower the triggers that tell you it's time to smoke. This part of the appointment
takes about 10 minutes. When you leave, you will have all the tools necessary
to change these habits. It takes about 7 days to get a new habit started and
21 days to "lock" it in.
