Stop Smoking With Auriculotherapy
Every year, millions of people try to quit smoking. And every year, millions fail. Most smokers try nicotine gums and patches, or just cold turkey to kick this addictive habit. Nicotine patches and gums simply replace one form of nicotine with another. Not a good idea.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, most relapses occur within the first three months. Quitting smoking can be challenging and stressful. Smoking is an addiction that is hard to break.
Dr. Harpal (Bobby) Gill D.C. of Align Health and Wellness in Naperville has a solution that can help people quit smoking with the use of Auriculotherapy treatments. With as little as (3) 15 minute treatments you can finally quit smoking for good!
Auricular Therapy is FDA-approved as a method to help smokers quit smoking. A practitioner pinpoints exact spots in the patient’s ear that have been demonstrated to help suppress the sensation of the cravings.
The treatments balance brain chemicals, that when out of balance, can lead to addictions. Auriculotherapy triggers the release of naturally occurring substances, endorphins, which eliminate symptoms of withdrawal and craving for nicotine. Instead of using needles to apply to the pressure points a handheld probe delivers a micro-current to the specific ear points. It is both a diagnostic and treatment device.
We need approximately 72 hrs to break the cycle because this is the time it takes to get the nicotine out of your system. The reaction for each individual varies. However, for the majority just three treatments is sufficient to get you through the 72 hrs and breaking the addiction.
We offer 6 additional "boosters" over the period of the 6 weeks following your treatment available for a small fee, but is seldom required. It is our agreement together that you remain nicotine free in order to be entitled to continuing with the program.
In the rare event that you relapse and start using nicotine again, you will be recommended an intensive 30 day program.
You have to be motivated to quit smoking. Once you have that motivation the Auriculotherapy and torque release treatments can offer permanent results with
up to a 80% success rate.
Our goal is simple, to see you succeed in eliminating your craving and dependency from nicotine. We want to add years to your life… and life to your years. Health is a choice.

What is Auriculotherapy?
Auriculotherapy is FDA-approved as a method to help smokers quit smoking.
Auriculotherapy is similar to ear Acupunture but it uses no needles. A micro-current stimulator is placed on reflex points on the outside of the ear. These points then send a message to the brain based on the location of the reflex points being treated.
Most people feel only a tiny tingling at the ear reflex points during treatment.
Imagine your brain as a computer. Inside this computer is a “map” of the entire body. This map is projected onto the ear through the body’s nervous system. Accessing the points on the map is like using a computer’s keyboard or mouse to gain entrance into the system. With this system we are able to directly treat a number of problems & conditions through the “brains computer.”
Research demonstrated much better retention rates in drug rehabilitation rates with the use of Auriculotherapy. Long term follow up of drug related offenders showed amazing reduction in the number of re-arrests in those who received Auriculotherapy as part of their rehabilitation.
Your treating practitioner will deliver a Torque Release Technique Adjustment. This part of the treatment will only take 5-7 minutes. We will be checking your spinal column for areas were the nervous system is being irritated and will deliver an adjustment using the Integrator instrument. This sounds like a staple gun and will feel like a quick impulse into the muscle.
You will then receive an Auriculotherapy treatment. This can take 10 -12 minutes. You will be lying on your side. The practitioner will be running a small micro-current device around your ear. You will hear a quiet, high-pitched noise coming from the instrument. When the practitioner treats an active reflex point that was located, you may feel a sensation of a light pulse or a pin-prick: This sensation will only last 30-60 seconds.
