Acupuncture to Stop Smoking

For centuries, the Chinese have been using acupuncture to bring the body back into balance. Applying small thin needles of different lengths and inserting them into the skin at various depths and precise pressure points, practitioners claim that paths in the body are opened up to free energy and bring the body back into equilibrium. Traditional Chinese medicine has usually been used to reduce pain and distress but because the practice has become more widespread in the Western world, traditional physicians are using it as a supplement to other techniques in the treatment of various conditions and behavioral modifications such as losing weight and stopping smoking.
