  SMOKING CESSATION
Nicotine Addiction Program

The addiction to cigarettes has been compared to the dependency of cocaine and heroin. Over the years there have been many stop smoking programs with varied results. Most of these programs, including the “gum” and the “patch”, have been drug (nicotine) based. Common sense dictates that replacing an addictive substance with another addictive substance is not an effective form of treatment.

The Total Laser Therapy program includes a two sided approach. We deal with both the physical and psychological sides of the addiction. First we deal with the physical side, the nasty withdrawal symptoms of the drug.



The Physical Side
The laser therapist uses a soft laser to target energy points on the body. Focusing the laser beam on these areas causes the body to release natural chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins have a calming, relaxing effect on the body that helps to reduce nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Some clients report a feeling of euphoria following a smoking cessation treatment with the laser.

In addition to stimulating an endorphin release, the laser stimulates the body’s natural ability to detoxify, getting the ex-smoker through the nicotine withdrawal more quickly.
The Psychological Side
The therapist will educate and counsel you on techniques, tips and helpful hints on how to beat the psychological issues. In order to help you succeed as a non-smoker, we will discuss the differences between the physical and psychological cravings, how to break the habit as well as detox and supplements.

All clients will receive a smokers handbook, a relaxation CD and 2 months of follow-up.
