The AcuKick program costs £249 which includes 8 treatment sessions and a starter pack full of ideas, coping strategies and equipment to help kick-start the plan.
AcuKick comprises 8 sessions (ideally 2 sessions a week for 4 weeks) during which you will receive all the treatment, help and guidance you need to kick the habit for good and start enjoying all the benefits of smoke free living. The plan manages your withdrawal by steadily reducing the amount of cigarettes you have over the course of the treatment sessions WITHOUT the use of drugs or nicotine replacement. Smoking is both a psychological and physiological dependency. In order to address the psychological dependency we will discuss the key triggers that prompt you to smoke and the coping strategies to employ to counteract and over ride the urge to smoke.
The physiological dependency, exemplified by cravings, discomfort, stress and irritability, will be significantly diminished by the acupuncture treatment, which will simultaneously elicit a feeling of calm and well being, help detoxify the body of the harmful chemicals introduced by smoking, and strengthen your will and resolve to leave the cigarettes alone.
