How it works

How it works
Our quit smoking therapy is a form of laser acupressure which targets the same points as acupuncture does, but without the needles.   Focusing the laser beam on these energy points stimulates the nerve endings and causes your body to release endorphins which help to reduce nicotine craving and withdrawal symptoms. Endorphins are the natural chemicals in your body that have a calming, relaxing effect. Current medical thinking is that smokers have higher levels of endorphins than non-smokers, which they stimulate artificially by tobacco smoke. When you stop smoking, the sudden drop in endorphin levels leads to withdrawal symptoms and physical cravings. Laser therapy helps address this by generating replacement endorphins. Some laser therapy clients may even report a feeling of euphoria following a smoking cessation treatment with the laser.

STEPS to quit smoking

Other benefits – detoxing, preventing weight gain
The laser stimulates your body’s natural ability to detoxify the nicotine, getting you through the nicotine withdrawal more quickly.

 

At the same time the treatment targets other points that are thought to suppress appetite, in order to help prevent the weight gain that often comes with quitting smoking, and to promote relaxation.

The session
laser-sessionYour initial session consists of a half hour laser treatment administered by one of our trained staff which includes an assessment of your history and requirements.

You will then receive two further 30-minute treatments over the next 2 consecutive days. You may elect to have 6 sessions should you require the additional support (3 consecutive treatments then have a rest over the weekend, and followup with 3 consecutive treatments.

Our laser
We use a state-of-the-art low-level, non-thermal laser (also called a “cold” laser). Cold lasers do not significantly heat or damage tissue. They are very different than the cutting lasers used in surgery or hair removal.

laser-treatmentLow-level laser therapy has been used in Europe and the UK for decades, and more recently in China and North America. It has been used on conditions ranging from osteoarthritis, wounds, back pain, neck pain, muscle fatigue, and peripheral nerve injuries.

Doctors use the comparison of taking a sick plant and putting it out in the sun in describing how they believe laser light helps to heal human tissue. Laser light penetrates the body and is thought to stimulate metabolic process, promoting tissue regeneration, reducing inflammation and relieving pain.

Additional (optional) acupuncture points
acupointsYou may opt for a complementary acupuncture body balance treatment to help reduce the symptoms of giving up, which include the coughing and mucus that increase as the lungs start to clean themselves. This acupuncture helps improve circulation, cleanses your organs including removing toxins from the lungs.
