Quit Smoking


Auriculotherapy is a smoking cessation technique that uses small, precise amounts of stimulus to the nerve endings on the exterior of the ear.

The Treatment

The treatment researched at UCLA has been refined and developed in to a painless, rapid procedure that takes just minutes to perform. A desire to discontinue nicotine use is necessary for a successful result.

It is common knowledge that the period following the elimination of nicotine intake is difficult to endure. For the average smoker, this treatment eliminated the extreme cravings and agonizing symptoms associated with withdrawal. The majority of clients state, without hesitation, that they are amazed at how little they even want to use nicotine in any form...and how easy it is to stop.

Even though the treatment will make quitting seem easier, there may still be times when you are either tempted to smoke or are just habitually drawn to think about smoking again.

80% of clients will need only one treatment. Occasionally, a second treatment is beneficial. There is no additional charge for this post treatment service, provided the client has not had any nicotine.

  • "I was referred to Dr. Coogan from a friend of mine, Laura, and patient of Dr. Coogan. I am currently recovering from breast cancer. The chemotherapy, surgery and hormonal therapy have had a big impact on my body. Chiropractic has helped me loosen tight connective tissue, increased function in my joints and reduced pain and inflammation in several parts of my body. Doc and the whole team at Old Mill Chiropractic are always so friendly and helpful. Thank You!!"
