Tobacco smoking remains the leading cause of death in the United States today. Everyone knows the bad effects of smoking both to the smoker and their loved ones who inhale secondhand smoke. This is one of the main reasons why 70% of adult smokers in America want to stop smoking.

But just like any other addiction, quitting is not that easy since nicotine is highly addictive. Luckily, there is a completely safe and effective way that can help people quit smoking.

Acupuncture has been a tested method that can aid and support patients in their efforts to withdraw from their nicotine addiction. Dr. Dresner is a Chiropractic Physician certified in acupuncture and can help patients who wish to succeed in their goal to stop smoking. He has helped a number of patients in their struggle against their smoking habits by carefully assessing their conditions and determining the most appropriate approach through acupuncture treatments.

When the flavor of tobacco smoke is combined with Nicotine, a highly addictive chemical substance, it becomes a powerful and satisfying oral sensation through cigarette smoking. This makes the habit harder to break. However, acupuncture can turn the taste of tobacco into a bad experience which would make it less desirable.

When a smoker decides to stop, the most common problems he would encounter are irritability, restlessness, jitters and extreme cravings. This is where acupuncture helps the most. The calming effect of acupuncture helps in soothing feelings of anxiety, sadness, agitation or stress. Acupuncture treatments are designed to address a person’s specific needs.

During the first consultation, Dr. Dresner would start assessment by finding out the patient’s history. The specific feelings that prompt the person to smoke, along with other details on the patient’s medical history would help Dr. Dresner in determining the appropriate acupuncture treatment.

During treatments, Dr. Dresner uses clean, sterile needles that are never reused, so patients can be assured of safe procedures. In addition, acupuncture helps calm the nerves and relieve restlessness, anxiety or stress.
