According to Chinese Medicine, when a person is dependent on a substance, we call it addiction. The addict is unable to control his/her desire. Desire belongs to the heart system and to the spirit. Phlegm accumulates and disturbs the mind. These are the emotional damages. There is also the physical damage. Smoking creates heat that damages the Yin (fluids) and the Qi (energy). Acupuncture can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, which are common symptoms associated with quitting. Specific acupoints in the ears and the body are used to balance the nervous system and reduce nicotine and food cravings. Chinese herbs are used to detox and rid off toxins.

CHINESE MEDICINE NUTRITION CONSULTATION
The good news is that there is no need to starve your self when loosing weight. In order for the metabolism to work properly we need to eat. Balancing the Spleen and the Stomach is our main target in losing weight. By eating properly, we can strengthen the spleen and stomach to properly digest the food we consume. Thus, sending it to the intestines to be absorbed within the body and used for active and stored energy. Eating a balanced diet according to Chinese medicine, including carbohydrates, proteins, fruits and vegetables, is an essential step you want to take when trying to loose weight. Carbohydrates are energetically sweet and warm, and important for the build up of Qi (energy). Proteins supplement the Qi, blood, and hormones, and are warmer than carbohydrates. Fruits and vegetables are cooling in nature, and balance the other groups. By assessing each patient individually by taking pulse, observing the tongue, and taking a complete medical history, we advise the right proportion from each nutritional food group.
By inserting needles into specific acupoints in the body and ears, it addresses not only the physical aspect of losing weight, but the psychological and emotional aspects as well. Certain acupoints reduce the sense of hunger by slowing down the absorption of the nutrients inside the intestine, leading to a longer satisfied feeling in the stomach. Other acupoints will target the reduction of sugar cravings. Acupoints to strengthen the willpower will be used, along with points to stimulate the release of Endorphins (natural pain and stress fighters).
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Beautiful skin begins with good circulation and healthy blood and Qi flow. Your face is a road map of energy and emotions, and according to oriental medicine, skin issues are caused by internal organ imbalances that manifest as dark circles under the eyes, pale skin, acne and excessive wrinkles. According to Chinese medicine, ”Where Qi goes blood flows”. In examining meridian flow, all the yang meridians rise up to the head. Because of this meridian connection, the face remains warm on a cold day when the rest of your body requires bundling in a thick coat. Therefore, the face reflects the body’s vital Qi, and the stimulation of the face, via treatment modalities such as acupuncture, tuning forks, micro current and tui-na, affect the meridians. Because the majority of the channels pass through the face it is justly regarded as the seat of emotions and spirit. In addressing emotion and spirit, a sense of self worth can be achieved, along with joy and radiance. Cleansing herbs are used to clear the skin; their properties include diuretics, laxative, anti- inflammatory, antibiotic, and blood and lymph cleansing.

ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE & CHINESE MEDICINE
Chinese medicine is an ancient and exact medicine, which offers the entire world the potential to treat and ease suffering with the most basic understanding of the connection between the human body and nature. The Chinese believed that everything comes and manifests from a vital force they called Qi. This vital force runs through our entire body in meridian pathways. We cannot see or measure it, but yet it exists. We cannot see the wind, but we know it exists because it moves the leaves.
With a minimal amount of tools, namely acupuncture needles, herbs, moxabustion, tui na and qhi gong, the ancient Chinese created a medicine that was born, according to texts between 2,000 and 5,000 years ago. We, the practitioners of this medicine, have many ways by which to diagnose, and the diagnosis is based on which element in our body is out of balance. Through an insertion of hair thin needles, acupuncture stimulates specific points on the skin, which correlate to internal organs and bodily function. It is used to reduce pain, remedy acute and chronic conditions, strengthen the immune system and reduce stress and tensions. In addition acupuncture uncovers the underlying root cause of what might have created the problem in the first place.
