Sacmi’s employees say no to cigarettes with acupuncture

Thirty-seven percent of smokers take up the company’s offer of free anti-smoking therapy.

Spaces set aside for smokers, yet also a much-needed helping hand when it comes to giving up smoking in the form of a free course of auricular acupuncture for all employees who want to say goodbye to cigarettes. Both these initiatives are designed to safeguard workers’ health in factories and offices at Imola, where, during May and June, an internal study of the effects of passive and active smoking was carried out.
The course of treatment – part of a joint project with the University of Bologna – offers workers a properly qualified acupuncture/auricular acupuncture therapist. Already, the idea has aroused considerable interest, with some 70 employees (about 37% of smokers) having signed up. As part of its workforce health policy, Sacmi is, together with the Imola Local Health Authority, also taking part in a regional tobacco-dependency study.
New laws that encourage companies to limit the damage caused by passive smoking have provided us with a valuable opportunity to safeguard the health of Sacmi’s employees and improve their quality of life: the company has always been very attentive to health matters, as this innovative plan to provide non-conventional acupuncture therapy clearly illustrates.
Acupuncture, or, more precisely, auricular acupuncture, consists of inserting very thin disposable sterile needles in the outer ear. Unlike medicines, which can have side effects, this form of therapy stimulates the body’s immune system and causes it to react against physical and psychological nicotine dependency.
