Acupuncture - auricular (ear)
Acupuncture is a balancing and centering process which reduces stress and cravings and promotes a sense of calm so that one gradually becomes more receptive to cessation. Acupuncture reduces withdrawal symptoms and increases energy levels.
The acupuncture will be performed by an Acupuncture detoxification specialist.
This program is a walk in clinic, free of charge which is offered weekly on Mondays from 3pm - 5:15pm.

"What I take away from the acupuncture sessions here is a great sense of calmness, serenity, peace. It's amazing, just the sense of relaxation and wellness that I get from just a 45 minute session. It's an amazing program. I would encourage anybody to at least give it a try to see how you react with it. I know it's worked fabulously for me"
Anthony E. Vukusich
The Jumpstart program was EYE OPENING! To be honest, I did the program out of solidarity with someone else, and I was curious about what going completely plant based for 10 days could do for me. I had NO IDEA how good (after a short sugar detox for the first few days) I would feel, how much my body would change in just TEN DAYS, and how much my blood work would reflect that. In just 10 days, I dropped six pounds, my total cholesterol went down 26 points, my HDL cholesterol went down 7 points, and my LDL cholesterol went down 21 points. Absolutely incredible. I felt so amazing that I decided to continue on with the plant based/vegan lifestyle after the program ended!”
