Auriculotherapy
Auriculotherapy is a needle-less form of traditional Chinese acupuncture. It is the stimulation of the auricle, or external ear, using an electrical probe to stimulate the central nervous system through the cranial nerves/spinal nerves. It is a proven effective tool to enable one to quite smoking by minimizing cravings, calming the nervous system and strengthening will power.

“Auriculotherapy has been show to be 75-80% effective”

We simply apply a very light stimulation to precise points on the external ear. By stimulating these specific points, we can intercept, messages sent by the brain to the body to demand more nicotine, thereby disrupting the addictive process. In most cases, relief of cravings are noticed immediately after just one treatment. One treatment is usually enough. We offer boosters if you are smoke free after 30 days and feel you need one.
