Using Acupuncture to Treat
Addictive Behavior

Addictions, by their nature, have great power over us. Ceasing an addictive behavior can provide some of our most challenging healing work. Acupuncture can help, by alleviating cravings and withdrawal symptoms, increasing relaxation and decreasing stress—helping to lessen the chances of relapse.

Many facing their addictive behavior uncover deep underlying emotions. Acupuncture is not a substitute for counseling, but because it can help to smooth the emotions and provide an increased sense of well-being, works very well in conjunction with counseling, and can often decrease the amount of time needed with a counselor.
