Quit Smoking Laser Therapy is similar to acupressure, except the treatment is done with a small laser point instead of needles making it completely noninvasive and pain free. With Stop Smoking Laser Therapy, a laser light pulse is placed at different acupoints of the hands, face, nose, feet, and ears.
In order to understand how the treatment works, you first need to learn about acupoints and endorphins.
Acupoints: Acupoints are connected points across the body. When stimulated, it balances energy that runs through the body. There are several hundred acupuncture points all over the body
Endorphins: Natural chemicals in your body that allow your system to decrease stress and increase energy.
The Quit Smoking Laser Therapy treatment uses Low Intensity Laser Therapy to stimulate the acupoint points of the organs that are affected by the nicotine.
Cigarettes have over 4000 different toxins that make the body release endorphins which make you feel relaxed. The problem is that the body becomes very used to this relaxed sensation and in order to sustain this feeling, the body urges you to take in more of these toxins by smoking.
With Quit Smoking Laser Therapy we stimulate the proper acupoint points (on the skin) that release a huge amount of endorphins in a healthy way mimicking similar endorphin rush caused by nicotine, and without harmful effects.
The Laser Therapist will place the laser over the skin on 40+ acu-points (on the hands, head, nose, and ears) for a minute at a time.
During the treatment you will hear a CD with some information on the therapy, and how to detox after your treatment. After your treatment your therapist will go over it again. Laser Therapy is painless, and during the laser treatment some clients feels the sensation of euphoria. Others say they feel a warm, pulsating and a tingling feeling. A typical session takes approximately 60 minutes depending on each person’s individual situation, if you would like the weight loss points added with the Stop Smoking Laser Therapy Treatment the total time would be extended accordingly.
