Addictions and Smoking Cessation

Addictions and Smoking Cessation

Compulsive behaviors occur in cycles and one stress leads to another. Emotionally unhealthy situations contribute to muscular tensions, pressures and pain. People commonly use drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, or overeating to avoid the stress and tension in their lives and to escape from feeling pain in the body. This can lead to addictions or self medication which can spiral out of control if professional help is not found.

How we can help
Complimentary therapies such as Acupuncture and Laser Therapy can break the negative cycle of addiction, since they help to  release pain, stress, and tension, and heightens body awareness. Instead of the numbing affects of drugs, these treatments  increase the circulation, helping to lift the fog of addiction and bringing a person back to the present moment. Complimentary therapies work alongside medical treatments for addictions and can enhance progress.

Acupuncture for Addictions
There are specific acupuncture points for regaining stability, reducing cravings, for heightening morale, self-esteem, and self-confidence, and for boosting will power – all of which are vital for combating addictions.

Laser Therapy for Addictions
 With regular treatments, laser therapy can help in the same way traditional acupuncture does in some people. The light used on the designated pressure points can stimulate endorphins-the chemicals necessary to maintain a feeling of well-being, decrease stress, and reduce the need for what an addiction might help supply. If the stimulation of endorphins is consistent, the cravings that are crucial to maintaining an addiction can be eliminated.
