Frequently asked questions about this treatment
Q: What is laser therapy? A: It is a process in which an infrared laser linked with biostimulation, which is a low level light beam is used to stimulate the acupuncture points responsible for reducing the physical addiction to cigarettes, curbing the appetite, as well as reducing stress. This has a direct effect on the brain communication with a specific outcome that breaks the addiction to nicotine.
Q: Is it safe? A: Yes! The laser is a laser diode in the visible light spectrum. We use this low level laser so that there is no possible danger or risk involved. The laser is just strong enough to cause mild simulation of acupuncture points – it does not burn, numb or destroy. The treatment is non-invasive and drug free.
Q: Does it work? A: Yes. InCanadawhere laser therapy was first introduced for smoking cessation over twenty years ago, there is a consistent success rate of 80%. Used specific protocols that work.
Q: Is it a reliable method? A: Yes. The method has been proven reliable. However, we are all individuals and the degree of psychological dependence is stronger in some people. The client must have the desire to quit smoking and come for a support booster if necessary.

Those effects can range from binge eating to a feeling of loss even to appoint of anxiety or even panic. These effects have nothing to do with the treatment.
