Maintain your motivation


Create impactful lifestyle changes

We support your journey to stop smoking, first with a combination of acupuncture and ear seeds for symptom relief. Once you detox the nicotine, we look at behavior modification, habit changes and how to access social support. We set you up to handle any temptations that will invariably come your way.

This combination of support and acupuncture treatments is highly effective, even for those who have tried and failed to quit smoking in the past.


There is a moment when you feel in your bones
that you are no longer addicted to nicotine…
a genuine sense of freedom in body and mind.
I am committed to helping you get there.

- Melissa Toyoshima


Acupuncture to Quit Smoking

When you quit smoking, the hardest part is the initial two-week period where you experience the bulk of the physical effects of withdrawal.

This can include:

  • Cravings
  • Feeling irritated, anxious, or restless
  • Insomnia
  • Hunger
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Trouble concentrating

Fortunately, acupuncture is a very effective treatment for these side effects.

We recommend you book a minimum of three acupcunture treatments within the first seven to ten days, with a further two treatments for the following week.

Depending on your body’s reaction to the treatments, you may need more or less – there is no prescribed number – but three is the ideal starting point and then we go from there.

We work with your needs to customize your quit smoking treatments specifically for you.

How does acupuncture help with quitting?

It decreases the side effects of withdrawal so you can get through the first two weeks while your body detoxes from the nicotine.

We will help you with modifying behavior, setting up plans during the times you have the most cravings and help create healthy lifestyle habits to aid in quitting.

What if I have a cigarette in between treatments? Will it still be effective?

Yes, some people find it more difficult to quit and slowly wean down during the treatment process.   

Where will the needles go?

Usually the needles are placed on the hands, feet and ears. We will often add electrical stimulation to aid in the treatment

Do you service the Battle Creek area for smoking cessation treatments?

Technically we are located in Portage, but we do offer smoking cessation treatments for Battle Creek residents.
