Quit Smoking

"I’m quitting!" An important decision that you’ve made yourself and where acupuncture can offer assistance. Acupuncture is used successfully as a support to stop smoking. As the physical need for nicotine disappears, withdrawal symptoms are kept to an absolute minimum. In addition, we also deal with "emotional" points related to, for example, depression and gluttony, so that a cigarette is not subsequently replaced by something else such as sweets.

In the first few weeks your body is busy adapting to the new situation. Your oxygen intake improves, and so does your physical condition, you feel clearer, et cetera. However, you may still have to deal with old habitual behavior. To be able to handle this properly, it is important that you yourself remain motivated not to light up again! If there are other complaints related to smoking, we can also discuss these and help you resolve them. As you know, Traditional Chinese Medicine covers more than just stopping smoking treatments.

How can acupuncture support?

The treatment starts with an intake where you will go through a questionnaire. After this interview, treatment starts according to the ChinaMedic Approach. Five treatments on average are sufficient. If you are having a hard time however, there is of course the possibility to get more treatments. Finally, we will give you advise on how to deal with this in the best way.

Frequently asked questions

What exactly can acupuncture help with?

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to remedy and improve a wide range of diseases and complaints. For an acupuncturist, the approach is simple: energy flows or it doesn't flow. The symptoms show where there may be a blockage in the body and this affects the rest of the body. In addition, the acupuncturist is about activating the self-healing capacity of the body. This makes acupuncture applicable to both sleep disorders and skin problems, allergies, addictions, depression, menopausal symptoms, burnout, rsi and so on. If you want to know how far acupuncture can help you, make an appointment for a 1st consultation and have yourself fully examined. The acupuncturist can then immediately tell you what we can do for you.

How many times do I have to come?

To give you a reliable and accurate estimate of the number of treatments you need, it is best to discuss this with your acupuncturist. If you have never been to an acupuncturist, you can make an appointment for a first consultation with possible treatment. The acupuncturist can then give you an estimate based on your complaints and the consultation.

Is acupuncture painful?

We use extra-thin needles for Abdominal Acupuncture. The punctures are hardly noticeable. People sometimes don't even feel where they are. Occasionally, someone may perceive a strange feeling, also described as nagging, numb, upset or painful. This feeling is often over.

The LaserNeedle that we often use in combination with puncturing needles is invasive and you don't feel it. The LaserNeedle is ideally suited for those who are afraid of needles and small children.

What does an acupuncture treatment cost?

A 1st consultation with subsequent treatment costs € 75.00. Each follow-up treatment costs € 60.00. ChinaMedic is affiliated with the NVA (Dutch Association of Acupuncture) and treatment is reimbursed by most insurers in the supplementary. It is advisable to contact your insurer what exactly this means for you. For a full price list of all our treatments CLICK HERE
