How to Stop Smoking by Chiva-Som International Health Resorts

Chinn Neo – a previous guest at Chiva-Som – is very happy. “[Ken Rosen] treated my husband Robert Lau for his nicotine addiction,” she says. “And after having smoked for the past 20 years, he has stopped! This is AMAZING!!”Chinn not only now has a healthier husband, she also has no unpleasant smoke odours hanging around the house. True: nicotine is incredibly addictive. But with the help of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), you too can stop smoking.Ken Rosen is Chiva-Som’s Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. “At Chiva-Som,” he says, “we offer a complimentary half-hour stop-smoking treatment that follows the NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol. “The treatment consists of four or five needles placed painlessly at specific points in each ear. After three to ten half-hour sessions, most people quit, and many report back a year later saying they remain smoke free.”But how does it work? Ken explains: “The ear is a nexus of energy in the body. During the treatment, the body’s nervous energy tries to push the needles out and tunes into itself for healing. When the needles come into equilibrium with the body and mind, the nervous system has been reset in a very profound way. Sort of like restarting a computer.”Another method to stop smoking is offered by renowned therapist Paul Emery. He uses a powerful combination of EFT and other psychological techniques, NLP for instance. “I can often reduce cigarette cravings in a matter of minutes,” he says. “And I provide guests with a quick tool to use if they need to reduce future cravings or stress.” EFT is based on 5,000 year-old Chinese principles. “It’s a psychological version of acupuncture, but without needles,” Paul reveals. “Instead, I tap specific meridian points. The treatment helps guests to quit smoking physically and psychologically, breaking links with associated activities such coffee breaks and meals.”TCM and EFT can be used for any addiction, including drugs, food, and work stress. They both have a deeply relaxing effect on the whole person, complementing other therapies at Chiva-Som.
