Combining Hypnosis and Acupuncture Can Help Smokers Kick the Habit

Press release from: Advanced Hypnotherapy

Two local professionals offer an Ultimate Smoking Cessation package during the 2010 Great American Smokeout on November 17th

SAN DIEGO (Oct 28, 2011) – According to the American Cancer Society, only 4-7 percent of people who attempt to quit smoking on their own will succeed. This year, in conjunction with the 2011 Great American Smokeout, two local smoking cessation specialists join forces to help San Diegans go smoke- free for life.

“The combination of hypnosis and acupuncture is a powerful and proven treatment for smoking addiction,” said Lynn Whitmire, owner of Advanced Hypnotherapy. Whitmire is partnering with Cheryl Warnke, founder of Silver Sage Acupuncture, to offer a 2011 Ultimate Smoking Cessation package designed to be affordable and accessible for everyday San Diegans.

“Many people who quit smoking experience cravings, irritability, sleeplessness and anxious feelings in the first weeks,” said Warnke. “The combination of acupuncture and hypnosis helps patients deal with cravings and stress, the top two reasons cite for their unsuccessful efforts to quit smoking.”

The Ultimate Smoking Cessation program will be offered from Nov. 14-18 and includes one 60-minute session of hypnotherapy with Whitmire and three 45-minute acupuncture treatments at Silver Sage Acupuncture. Cost of the package is $199.00. “That’s about what an average smoker pays for cigarettes in a month,” said Warnke.

“Statistics show that the combination of hypnotherapy and acupuncture increases the odds of quitting ny 80-90 percent, according to Whitmire. “This compares favorably with the most successful nicotine replacement therapies that have a 44 percent success rate.”

“I have been helping people stop smoking with hypnosis for the last 10 years, it’s my favorite thing to do,” said Whitmire. “Cheryl and I felt it was time to clear the smoke-filled air and remove misconceptions that people have about these two powerful modalities.”

Participation in the Ultimate Smoking Cessation program is limited. To reserve a spot or for more information, call Lynn Whitmire at 858-270-5756 or Cheryl Warnke at 858-576-7243.
