Smokers Take Note: State-Wide Smoking Ban Coming Up, But Acupuncture Can Stop Your Habit

June 18, 2010

News Release

 

 

 

With Wisconsin’s state-wide smoking ban going into effect July 5, Milwaukee area

 

residents who want to kick that insidious smoking habit that they've nourished all these years can look

 

to Dr. Arthur Rapkin for help. He suggests that acupuncture can do the job. He’s a local practitioner of

 

acupuncture and oriental medicine at the Kindo Center, 890 Elm Grove Rd., in Elm Grove.

 

"If you've ever tried to kick the smoking habit yourself, you know how difficult that can

 

be," says Dr. Rapkin, who has practiced acupuncture for more than 25 years. "Our acupuncture

 

treatment is an intensive, but effective way of doing it.”

 

According to the National Institute of Health, acupuncture has been proven effective in

 

stopping smoking, eliminating cravings to smoke and stopping withdrawal symptoms associated with the

 

cessation of smoking. “Our experiences with our patients verifies that fact,” Dr. Rapkin says.

 

"Acupuncture guides the movement of the body's vital energies and positively influences

 

the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems," he says.

 

According to Dr. Rapkin, an acupuncture treatment does not work by simply taking

 

away nicotine cravings or by mitigating the side effects of withdrawal. Instead it teaches the patient’s

 

body how to overcome these symptoms on its own. “For this reason, people who overcome a tobacco

 

addiction with the help of acupuncture often will emerge stronger than they were before becoming

 

dependent in the first place. A person who has been free all his or her life can not possibly appreciate

 

freedom the way a liberated nicotine slave can.”

 

A widely experienced practitioner of oriental medicine, acupuncture and Chinese

 

herbology, Dr. Rapkin serves on acupuncture boards and advisory committees for the state of Wisconsin

 

and national health organizations.

 

More information can be obtained by contacting him at the Kindo Center, (262) 827-

 

4000. ###
