Acupuncture is successful with smoking cessation and has turned a growing number of cigarette smokers into permanent ex-smokers. Treatments take all of your symptoms into account and aim at balancing the energy within your body to optimize health.
Here at The Holistic Athlete NYC we doubled up the fun and offer smoking cessation treatments in the infrared sauna.
Acupuncture treatments focus on jitters, cravings, irritability and restlessness; all symptoms that people commonly complain about when they quit. It also aids in relaxation and detoxification.
The needles used are hair-thin and are superficially inserted into various points in the ears and body to assist with smoking cessation. In between treatments, small pellets are taped to the acupuncture points on the ear. When the craving hits, gently pressing on the pellets stimulates the acupuncture points to calm the mind and eliminate your cravings.
And sweating is good for you. Seriously, sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. Ridding the body of toxins through a natural sauna detox may help further relieve your symptoms, prevent future illness and increase your overall health and vitality. Far infrared saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. Far infrared saunas are highly effective in detoxification because of their highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon far infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, this sauna detox will heat your core to expel them. 👂🏻🚬🚫📌
