The term LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. At the clinic, we use a leading laser therapy system known under the name Theralase®.
Laser treatment is the application of a non-invasive laser beam to specific energy points on the body. This is a completely drug-free, non-invasive, safe and painless procedure. The laser treatment session lasts 40 minutes. Although, most patients require only 1 session, occasionally, a patient may feel they require a booster treatment.
The smoking cessation laser treatment is a modern method of therapy. The laser simply converts electrical energy into a form of light energy that is transmitted to the patient by means of specially designed probes. Low power lasers do not generate heat, therefore, when the laser contacts the skin, the patient experiences no warmth or burning.
How It Works
We are using the laser on energy points to help promote the release of neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, serotonins and dopamine, to help smokers deal with their withdrawal symptoms.
During the treatment, most people feel nothing other than a sense of relaxation. The laser procedure involves the application of the probe to energy points on the ears and limbs. When these specific points of the body are stimulated with the laser, it promotes the release of these neurotransmitters into the brain, which results in a calming effect on the body.
Endorphins, a specific neurotransmitter, are one of the body’s own painkillers, an opioid (morphine-like) chemical produced by the body that serves to suppress pain and assists in keeping the body calm and relaxed. The patient experiences a feeling of euphoria and well-being that helps to dramatically reduce the withdrawal symptoms, irritability and cravings, which come with quitting addictive tendencies such as smoking.
What the Program Involves
Addictions involve both a physical and a psychological component. Our smoking cessation programs address both components by using a state-of-the-art laser therapy system to address the physical component of the addiction and counselling guidance to address the psychological component.
The counselling guidance involves practical advice that helps to support the individuals’ efforts to remain a non-smoker.
Start Living Smoke-Free
No matter how long you’ve smoked; no matter how many times you’ve tried to quit; if patches, gum, inhalers or hypnosis haven’t worked for you, then why not try laser therapy with an 85% proven success rate?
