Practicing Gratitude this Holiday Season
Wednesday, December 4, 2019
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Edward Hospital Education Center Auditorium

If we let them, the holidays can become a time of stress and anxiety. We have social commitments, holiday cards, gift purchases and gatherings to plan. We all want to remember the “reason for the season.” Todd Fink, CADC, musician, author, speaker, counselor and lifelong student of meditation, will lead this discussion about how you can navigate your December with a more grateful and open heart that will lead you to a greater sense of joy throughout the coming year.

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

On-going 4 week program
Wednesdays 9 am – 5 pm

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). For pricing and more information, please click here.
