Acupuncture is a very effective method to quit smoking. It can be a very effective alternate therapy in case all other methods have been futile. People who opt for  acupuncture treatment are really interested and desperate to quit smoking. They are truly motivated to kick the habit. They no longer consider the habit as glamorous and worthy of emulating. Cigarette smoking for them is no longer a reason to celebrate.

Acupuncture is a 3500 old remedy, which has its roots in Chinese medicine. This remedy cures chronic smokers. It is usually effective for smokers who have failed with the past anti smoking methods. It works on the human body in a very effective manner.

The basis of acupuncture anti smoking therapy is called chi, a vital energy force. This energy flows through 12 key channels around the body. There are 365 acupuncture points on the body spread over  these 12 key channels. At times, these points get blocked and prevent the free and smooth flow of vital energy. Chronic and undesirable habits may be formed as a result.

There are no magic acupuncture points in this therapy. The therapist simply inserts needles into the ear canal and on the hand and wrist of the patient, after which the patient relaxes from a 30 to 45 minute period. The needles open the acupuncture points, release chi energy and provide relief to the smoker. The patient feels less stress and the craving for nicotine is reduced.
There are a number of sessions, which the patient has to undergo. These sessions also deal with emotional and physical withdrawal symptoms. Generally, these withdrawal symptoms occur in the patient at the time of acupuncture therapy.

The treatment also uses herbs, besides needles. Clove oil is applied on the acupuncture points. The herbal treatment involves application of clove oil and wintergreen oil on the acupuncture points. The therapist also applies extracts of Evodia fruit and Sichuan Lovage Rhizome on the acupuncture points. This treatment gives the patient a feeling of nausea, vomiting, headache and dizziness whenever the use of tobacco is attempted.
