Growing up, my mother was always a heavy smoker, and her addiction to tobacco had a big impact on my health and environment. The whole house smelled of smoke. I was forever coming down with respiratory infections. On Saturdays, she’d throw me in the car for a drive to New Hampshire, where cigarettes were cheaper. Once, the coffee table caught fire from a faulty lighter! We didn’t have a lot of money back then, but cartons upon cartons of cigarettes were a TOP priority. I watched as her chain smoking drained her bank account and prematurely aged her skin. Today, she has COPD and 2 ground glass tumors in her lungs.
For a while in my career as an acupuncturist, I stopped taking on smoking cessation clients. I found it frustrating that seemingly every last one of them would come in for their appointments smelling of smoke, having had that One. Last. Cigarette. In the car on the way over. I had better luck with people coming off methadone than I did with smokers. I knew these people needed something more.
Acupuncture provides a tremendous benefit on the physical level for smoking cessation and all sorts of addictive behaviors. It helps regulate the nervous system and calm cravings and irritability. What it can’t do, though, is change the subconscious mind. There is a physical element to tobacco / nicotine addiction, but there is a major psychological component to it as well. People have many triggers around emotional states and social situations that they use smoking to cope with. Hypnosis helps to completely reprogram the subconscious mind for success, and helps neutralize these triggers.
Over the last couple of months, I have created a smoking cessation program like no other. Combining acupuncture, hypnosis, herbal and nutritional supplements, and MP3s for daily reinforcement and homework. You simply can’t find anything else like it, anywhere.
But wait...there’s more…
This program is also GUARANTEED.
That’s right, I’m guaranteeing it. I expect participants to be all in, and I am 100% invested in your success.
After the initial smoking cessation program is completed, and you have successfully completed your hypnosis assignments (listening to home audio sessions, attending your sessions, etc.) Maverick Wellness will provide FREE REINFORCEMENT sessions at client’s request as needed (maximum one per month) until client is satisfied and has attained his or her desired results. This guarantee applies to smoking cigarettes, cigars, pipes or tobacco chewing.
So, what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Would you take immediate action and set yourself on a path of freedom from cigarette smoking? Our next group will start February 2nd, and space is limited. Take control of your life and your health today, and give us a call to secure your spot!
