Addiction recovery

We take a non-judgemental approach. You set your goals for your health; it’s our job to support you. Acupuncture can be very effective for minimizing cravings and withdrawal symptoms, helping the body detoxify during withdrawal from substances, managing stress during withdrawal, and heal from the effects of addiction. The most common addiction we treat is tobacco addiction, but acupuncture can help with withdrawal from a wide range of substances and behaviours.

Our recommendations for treatment will depend on the intensity of the addiction; if you’re quitting smoking, for example, we’ll probably suggest that you come for two treatments before even quitting, to get your body a little more balanced before dealing with withdrawal symptoms.
