Acupuncture & Addictive Behaviors

Acupuncture & Addictive Behaviors

Postgraduate Webinar with Dr. Konstantina Theodoratou on Sunday, May 12, 2019 (10 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

In modern science we are no longer talking about addictions but about addictive behaviors. Stress reduction, smoking cessation, weight correction, internet addiction, at work, etc. are some of the forms of addiction we encounter most often in our daily lives.

These behaviors are related to changes in the function of the central nervous system and the brain that are similar in all dependencies. Acupuncture has been shown to help with all stages of addictive behavior. It improves the symptoms of detoxification and deprivation, calms the central nervous system, relieves stress and normalizes the system of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, etc.

In the seminar we will learn all the ways that acupuncture can be applied to all stages of detoxification. The therapeutic protocols of acupuncture, ear acupuncture and electroacupuncture as well as the way we use them will be described: how many times, each time and their combinations.
