Acupressure helps teenagers quit smoking

  • 1 Comment

They compared auricular acupressure combined with multimedia instruction with auricular acupressure alone.

Sixty-four participants were assigned to experimental groups according to their preference.

Group 1 received the 10-week program with auricular acupressure plus multimedia instruction; Group 2 received auricular acupressure alone.

  • your link above does not go to be able to read the study unless you're prepared to hand over cash, were you aware NT? and your picture shows acupuncture, odd choice to illustrate the piece.

    on the subject itself, its no surprise to a naturopath or tcm therapist but interesting as so many 'new discoveries' are being framed in terms of 'reasearch' now.
