CORE Treatment Program: Quit Smoking Acupuncture Support

Have you tried to quit smoking? Are you getting nowhere? Can’t manage your cravings with typical stop-smoking aids? Do you help staying motivated to quit? We are offering a unique Quit Smoking, Acupuncture Support Program at Green Apple Health Care in 2016.

What is the CORE treatment program?

Once weekly for 4 weeks you will receive a half hour acupuncture treatment in a quiet, relaxing setting. We will send you home with acupuncture ‘seeds’ over several acupuncture points. These seeds are little round balls attached to a sticker and are left in after the needles so you can stimulate various acupuncture points when you get cravings. At the beginning of the program, you will have a 15minute consultation with Dr. Kirk Westby or Dr. Briana Botsford to set goals and create a stop-smoking protocol that will work for you. At the end of the 4 weeks, you will have a 15minute follow up visit with your doctor to determine your next steps and discuss your success.

How does the CORE Treatment Program work?

You will relax in a luxurious reclining chair in a quite, small group environment. The doctors will insert approximately 10 needles into various acupuncture points located in your ears. The protocol used is well supported by research to help with many different addictions including smoking. The acupuncture needles are very fine and produce very little pain sensation. You will relax with the acupuncture needles in for about half an hour. The doctors will check on you periodically to see how you’re doing.

What happens when I’m finished the CORE Treatment program?

After the program is finished if you would like to continue treatment or pursue other forms of natural medicine to achieve your health goals, you can book an initial, 1-hour consultation to review your whole health history with Dr. Westby or Dr. Botsford for the cost of a follow up visit, only $75. 

Try our 4 week quit smoking acupuncture support program to reduce your cravings and increase your chances of success! We can help you quit smoking for good.
