Addiction is described as a compulsive physiological and psychological need for a habit-forming substance and is an increasing problem for many adults who develop an involuntary dependence on these substances. However, acupuncture provides a new hope for people suffering from harmful addictions. Acupuncture can provide you with a foundation for recovery and social rehabilitation, as well as being a supportive component to recovery.
Acupuncture aims to address addiction through needling specific acupuncture points around and on the outside of the ear which correspond to the organs in the body. When these points are stimulated, they help to replenish the organs and help with detoxification. But specifically for addiction, the stimulation of these points will aid in suppressing withdrawal symptoms and increase the feeling of relaxation and a positive mind-set.
If you are suffering with an addiction problem, Acupuncture That Works are able to offer a range of options which could help. If you would like to find out more and to make an appointment for your free initial consultation then please call us on 0800 051 76 88.
