Addictions

 

Virtually any addiction can be treated with acupuncture, such as cigarettes, coffee, alcohol, heroin, methadone, crack and even chocolate! Eating disorders can be treated as well. Acupuncture is not addictive. If acupuncture is included as part of the treatment in a comprehensive drug treatment program, the success rate rises significantly. Acupuncture can help a person relax, and restore one's sense of well-being. Acupuncture does not, however, interfere with the exercising of one's free will. It will not force someone to quit a habit, one must be motivated to quit. Acupuncture can smooth the road one chooses to travel.


If you come to Harmony Acupuncture and Sound Healing, it is quite likely that needles will be inserted in your ears. Auricular (ear) acupuncture has been used and developed by the French and the Chinese as a form of therapy and also specifically by the Chinese, for acupuncture anesthesia. In detox acupuncture, as in detoxification from an addiction, treatments usually involve the use of acupuncture points on the external ear, or auricle. Acupuncture can help with the withdrawal from any addiction, by treating and preventing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Acupuncture also helps smooth out mood swings, which sometimes accompany withdrawal. Mood swings can tempt one to return to whatever one is addicted to. An important component to any detox plan is counseling and emotional support
