TCM Acupuncture In Smoking Cessation

| TCM Body Acupuncture | By: admin

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) maintains that the body’s Qi (vital energy) flows around the body through 12 regular channels, which link the different organs, and each other. The channels form a network, or matrix of channels all over the body. Also eight extraordinary meridians, which interconnect and again connect back to twelve regular channels. They can seen as reservoir for energy the twelve regular channels.

In ill health, including addictions, the body’s Qi is unbalanced, the flow may be ‘irregular’, ‘unsmooth’  and therefore the person experiences various symptoms of body and/or mind.

A very simple description of acupuncture points can be seen as places where the Qi can be influenced; therefore this is why they are needled. The needling helps to influence and correct the disordered Qi along the channel, and regulate the disordered Qi of the organs.

In long term addiction, the body’s Qi is said to profoundly affected. Since TCM understands that imbalance in one channel or organs will over time have an effect on other organs and channels, points on other channels are usually also chosen to reflect the patient’s symptoms and general emotional patterns.

TCM acupuncture clinic sessions may involve body and ear acupuncture needling simultaneously, as neither is contraindicated. Within TCM, the ear would be as theoretically valid as only other place to needle, although it has to be said that lower legs and arms and the back are perhaps most commonly used along with points at or near the affected body part. Interestingly, in modern times, many ear acupuncturist colleagues specialize only in working on the ear, feeling its effects are adequately powerful for their purposes.

Acupuncture generally  involves a health consultation before points are chosen according to the TCM diagnosis. The acupuncturist leaves the room to allow the patient to roll up trouser legs or remove a shirt. Towels are usually left on the couch to avoid them feeling cold or embarrassed by feeling ‘over-exposed’. The practitioner then makes sure the patient is comfortable and inserts the needles. In the West, generally speaking practitioners use sterile disposable fine needles, manufactured specifically for acupuncture. (In Europe these must carry a CE mark on the packaging to show quality control.) The needles are inserted carefully, and then they stay in place for usually around 20 to 30 minutes. Most practitioners leave the patient to relax alone, checking on them periodically. At the end of the treatment, the practitioner removes the needles for disposal into a sharps bin.

A usual course of acupuncture is 6 to 10 sessions, although this will vary from patient to patient and practitioner to practitioner.

Studies On Acupuncture For Quitting Smoking

| Studies | By: admin

Many studies have been conducted in the West into the effect of acupuncture on the people who regularly smoked tobacco products trying to quit smoking. Many of the studies have found that acupuncture positively influenced the number of smokers who quit smoking during the trials. Some have also not found such an effect. Unfortunately, the design of the studies means meta-analysis (comparison of different trial results) is not always reliable. The British Acupuncture Council provides a summary of many research papers on the effects of acupuncture during smoking cessation, many of which demonstrated positive effects (1).

The gold standard of scientific medical research is the randomised controlled trial. Acupuncture does not always lend itself well to the trial requirements. This is because it is not a standardised therapy. In real life, ina an acupuncture clinic patients do not get treated using one point, or one set of points every time, always! A wide variety of acupuncture points are chosen each individual appointment, wheteher by acupuncturist using body points, or by ear acupuncturist. Some standardisation has occurred within ear acupuncture but not to extent probably that randomised controlled trials generate within their methodological approach.

Studies which did find positive effects for acupuncture and smoking cessation maybe good reason for smokers quitting to try acupuncture. One interesting study found motivated smokers did better with acupuncture than without. 46 healthy male and female smokers were recruited and it found the desire to smoke was significantly reduced compared to group who had not received acupuncture (2).
