Are you struggling with an addiction that’s spiraled out of control, or worried about a friend or family member’s substance abuse?
You are not alone. People who are addicted feel an overwhelming, uncontrollable need for drugs, alcohol or cigarettes, even in the face of negative consequences.
The good news is that you or your loved one can beat the problem.
Acupuncturist from Diamond Bridge Clinic Celia Xie said acupuncture was increasing in popularity as an effective aid in the control of many addictions.

“Acupuncture can raise the level of endorphins in the nervous system, which alleviates the cravings and withdrawal symptoms experienced by adults giving up alcohol or smoking,” she said.
“In traditional Chinese medicine when the yin and yang energies in our body are in balance then emotional and physical health is in check. Addictions and substance abuse deplete the yin (contentment with self) causing the yang (mental anguish) to flare.
“Acupuncture can help relieve the withdrawals and cravings (yang aspect) and Chinese herbs nourish the yin aspect, which holistically enables the system to start flowing again.”
“This can be compared to a highway system (yin) that is always congested or blocked leading the drivers (yang) to frustration or even anger.”
Following many years of research and practice, the seven practitioners at Diamond Bridge Clinics have formulated a unique system in the treatment of addictions that is customised to suit the individual.
“The success of the program is due to the flushing out of the chemicals in the body,” Ms Xie said.
“Our program is different to other programs that offer a chemical derivative. Patients who follow our treatment protocol always have a high success rate.
“All of our practitioners have formal qualifications and, most importantly, many years of clinical experience.
“We also specialise in treating chronic pain, trauma injuries, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, headaches, depression and stress.”
