HYPNOTHERAPY and ACUPUNCTURE
Including three years of support to ensure you stay stopped
Everything you want to know about our York hypnosis and acupuncture services
Most clients stop in a single session, but a free follow-up is provided within three months in the event that you have a problem. Our York hypnotherapist has bookings from Monday to Saturday, and you can also be seen in the evening.
The fee here is inclusive of three treatments. Many patients stop after just two, but it’s a good idea to have the third one anyway. If you really don’t need it, we can hold it in abeyance in case you come back with a problem.

NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP SMOKING
Sometimes, people come to us not to stop smoking but for smoking reduction. It’s a choice they make, and we publish a book on reduction. ‘No, You Don’t Have to Stop Smoking’ will be of interest even if you want to stop. Take a look at it before you visit our York hypnosis or acupuncture branch. Here is a taster.
….. Now when you are trying to stop smoking the habit is immaterial. Anyone can change their habits, but in the case of smoking the habit is underpinned by your addiction to nicotine. You are addicted, so you are a smoker, and because you are a smoker you develop a smoking pattern, or habit. Some nicotine addicts will develop a five-a-day pattern, some will develop a ten-a-day pattern, or 20-a-day, and so on. This pattern, or habit, has nothing whatever to do with addiction. Remember, it is addiction that makes you smoke AT ALL; how many you smoke is not to satisfy the addictive craving, because, and this is important, the addictive craving requires you to smoke only about four or five times a day. Anything over this number has nothing to do with addiction.
So the big problem when you are trying to stop smoking, the addiction, becomes meaningless when all you are doing is cutting down, because you are not going to break the addiction. You are not going to cross the addiction threshold. If you smoke, say 20 a day, five of those are cigarettes you need to maintain the addiction (to prevent withdrawal symptoms), the other fifteen are just habitual – they simply aren’t needed. You smoke them for no other reason than that they are there and they are there, remember, because you are addicted and need them there. So the addiction is feeding the habit. When you stop smoking, you control the addiction and the habit disappears on its own, with no help from you or anyone else.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our York hypnotherapy branch
Margaret was an unusual case. Most smokers will do well with either hypnotherapy or acupuncture. Although we look at each client’s smoking issues to decide which therapy to recommend, either will help almost anyone to stop smoking, Because Margaret had not seriously tried to stop before, we recommended hypnotherapy.
She happily accepted our advice, and came to see our York hypnotist. We like to speak with clients the day after their therapy, and when we spoke with Margaret we could see a clearer picture than before. She said she enjoyed the experience, felt relaxed with our York hypnotherapist, and felt she had stopped smoking by the time she got home. However, this feeling of euphoria can sometimes be misleading.
The purpose of hypnotherapy is to persuade your brain that the withdrawal symptoms you would normally have when you stop smoking aren’t happening. It’s really good at this. Nonetheless, they ARE happening. The point of the therapy is that you don’t notice them. In Margaret’s case, they were felt, just enough to persuade her to smoke. She regretted it, but having smoked one she smoked another. We were almost there but she needed more.
Margaret wanted to see our York hypnotherapist again, and this seemed like a good idea. However, we felt we should discuss another option with her. We felt that a session of acupuncture would overcome the problem. We explained our thinking to Margaret, and she agreed, because she knew she was succeeding, and making the right decision was critical to her success. She considered the small cost of the extra treatment well worthwhile, and came to see our York acupuncturist a couple of days later.
Margaret, and we, thought she would need to see our hypnotherapist again, but after the acupuncture she didn’t. Cases like this are rare, but having both hypnotherapists and acupuncturists means we can give each client exactly what they need. Sometimes we can’t know what they need until after we have started, but that doesn’t matter. Our York acupuncture and hypnotherapy branches have not had to work in tandem like this since Margaret, but it was a good experience for us and a happy one for her.
TALK WITH OUR ACUPUNCTURIST * FIRST
When you enquire about acupuncture we will discuss whether it’s what you need. If it is, we will have our York acupuncturist phone you, because you will still want to see if you like her. Acupuncture is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will also depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
