Integrative Medicine

Smoking Cessation (Hypnosis & One-on-One Counseling)

On-going 4 week program
Wednesdays 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Smoking is a strong, complicated addiction. You need the best tools to help with the physical and emotional symptoms. Hypnosis and acupuncture are great resources to help you succeed. During hypnosis for smoking cessation, a patient is often asked to imagine unpleasant outcomes from smoking, which can help later when the desire to smoke occurs. Acupuncture can help stop jitters, curb cravings, lessen irritability and restlessness, increase relaxation and detoxify the body. The Integrative Medicine Clinic, located at Elmhurst Hospital, offers a four-week smoking cessation program by hypnosis, counseling and acupuncture (if you wish). The program can give you the support you need to kick the habit for good. Please call 331-221-6135 to register (sessions available by appointment, at your convenience).
