Zerosmoke™, based on Auricular Therapy, the stimulation of acupressure points on the ear, utilizes the therapy with two small magnets, placed back to back on the ear. The pressure-applying effects of the two biomagnets stimulates the release of neurotransmitters in the brain that, in turn, may lead to a sense of well-being and also decrease or eliminate cravings and withdrawal symptoms experienced with smoking cessation. The magnets are placed on the ear for up to four hours at a time and, studies have shown, smokers kick their habit within one month " without the need to quit cold turkey or the use of pills, gums or chemical components.
