What is laser therapy?

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a safe and effective way to help people quit smoking, vaping nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, drugs, stress, pain, and more. The treatment is a non-invasive, safe, and holistic method for promoting strong healing responses in the body. Low-level laser light is applied to specific points on the ears, head, arms, legs, and other tissues.


How does laser therapy work?

The purpose of laser therapy to help people quit addictions like smoking is to stimulate a strong release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins – the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. This helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms in order to break the addiction cycle to nicotine. The end goal is to drastically make it easier for people to quit addictions for good.


How does laser therapy treatment feel?

Most people find that laser therapy is very relaxing with minimal side effects. Some report that during treatment they feel a warm and pleasant “heavy” feeling in their arms and legs. Many find treatment so relaxing that they may even fall asleep. Lastly, a majority of people report, after laser treatment, positive moods, an increased general sense of well-being, better quality sleep, and more confidence that they will quit their addiction.


Where is the laser applied?

Laser is applied to specific energy points (also called acupuncture points) on the head, face, ears, arms, hands, legs, and feet. If you are seeking treatment for pain, injury, or healing, laser is also applied to affected tissues.


Is laser therapy safe?

Yes. Low-level laser therapy has been utilized for many years with little to no side effects, as reported by many rigorous scientific studies and clinical applications. The main precaution is that clients must wear specialized glasses to protect against laser light entering the eyes. Dave provides protective glasses for every treatment.

Any other concerns are addressed if need be after you fill out the required health history form BEFORE your first appointment.

Is treatment guaranteed?

Because of physiological and psychological variables involved with addiction, results cannot be guaranteed just like a doctor cannot guarantee that medication “will work” for any particular health concern.

However, based on Lazer Dave’s many years of clinical experience and high success rates — he helps the vast majority of people with laser by dramatically reducing the intensity of withdrawal symptoms related to various addictive substances including nicotine.

Results are maximized when laser treatment is combined with the suggestions and information provided in the Laser Quit Therapy Prep Guide (included with the program fee).


Can I try one treatment?

All laser therapy programs include two treatments. They are most effective when followed as designed.


What if I want or need treatment for more than one concern?

If you are seeking laser treatment for more than one concern (stress, multiple addictions, etc.), the order in which the concerns are addressed isn’t something that should necessarily be decided before your first treatment.

Dave often suggests that when a client has multiple concerns, it is best to complete the first treatment and then subsequently see which substance or habit feels easiest for the client to quit first.

Thereafter, the treatment program is tailored to align with your individual response and goals, based on quitting more than one substance and/or habit.

It should be no surprise that you may need extra booster treatment(s) beyond the program you sign up for in order to quit multiple substances, addictions, habits, or especially challenging conditions.


How long is the duration of treatment(s)?

Initial appointments are usually about 45 minutes. Subsequent treatment times are typically around 30-40 minutes.


How do I prepare for my first laser quit treatment?

Preparing for your first laser quit appointment is just as critical as receiving laser treatment itself.

Lazer Dave has authored a short 10-page self-help manual called the Laser Quit Therapy Prep Guide. This guide contains valuable information and suggestions on how best to prepare and maximize the chance of you successfully quitting for good. It really is a critical factor in his highly successful laser quit programs.

Dave strongly recommends you read over his book in its entirety and institute as many of the suggestions contained therein. This ebook is in PDF format and will be emailed to you after you have signed up for a laser quit program and paid the $50 deposit/prep guide fee (which is non-refundable).


Is Laser Quit Therapy Treatment Guaranteed?

Just like a doctor CANNOT guarantee that medication will work, results with laser are also NOT guaranteed. The public, in some cases, has been marketed the idea that laser is almost magical in its effectiveness and that withdrawal symptoms will just “poof” — totally disappear. This is simply NOT realistic.

However, scientific studies and clinical results support the fact that laser therapy is very effective for most people.


Do you offer discounts?

Lazer Dave competes mostly by service and expertise as Ottawa’s Laser Therapy Expert.

He is proud to offer his unique combination of training in massage therapy, medical acupuncture, the latest laser therapy research, and years of clinical success to the residents of the greater Ottawa area.

With this being said, Dave does offer 10% OFF for groups of 2 or more. Dave’s policy on this discount policy is that you must request the group discount when booking the first appointment for the “group”, not thereafter.


How long do results last after treatment?

Every patient has their own unique experience and reaction to laser therapy for withdrawal from smoking, nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, sugar, etc.

However — the majority of clients do experience substantial relief from withdrawal symptoms during the first few critical days after the first and/or second treatment. Many clients report how much easier it is to quit versus other methods they have previously utilized.

Sometimes, results are not tangible or noticeable until after the second treatment included with each laser quit program is completed. In rare cases or for especially challenging addiction concerns, it may take further treatment(s) until satisfactory results accrue and are realized.

Similar to a doctor not being able to guarantee that medication will “work”, results for laser quit therapy cannot be guaranteed. However, scientific studies and clinical results support the fact that laser therapy is very effective for most people.


What about medical conditions?

Generally, laser therapy is very safe for the majority of health conditions and medications.

Exceptions to treatment may include pregnancy, cancer, epilepsy, and recent seizure activity. This is why it is important you submit a completed health history form AHEAD of your first appointment. Reception will email you the appropriate link when you sign up for any laser therapy quit program. Please complete this as soon as possible and email it back to reception so Dave can take a look at it well BEFORE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT. If he has any concerns, he will call you BEFORE your first appointment.

1530910 Ontario Limited nor Lazer Dave is a doctor. Neither diagnose illness, prescribe medication, or treat medical conditions. Laser therapy is an adjunct therapy and does not replace the advice of a doctor or other health care providers.

Always consult a doctor regarding any health concerns and changes in medications or similar.


Who Performs Laser Treatment? How Is Service Billed? What Will My Receipt Display?

1530910 Ontario Limited performs all treatments. Your payment receipt will show the service performed by 1530910 Ontario Limited as “Laser Quit ******* (Your Program/Booster Treatment).” Receipts are as is and not issued in any other format.


How much does the Ottawa Laser Therapy Program To Quit Smoking cost?

The total cost of the program is $300+ taxes. This includes the Laser Quit Therapy Prep Guide and two treatments. The second treatment must be utilized within two weeks of the first treatment.


Should I come in for the second treatment?

Even if clients are doing very well after the initial treatment, Dave encourages clients to come in for their second treatment to increase their chances of quitting for the long term. Other clinics generally don’t encourage clients to come back for a second treatment unless specifically requested.


Do you charge an extra fee to stimulate appetite suppression points?

No. Some clinics charge an extra $100 for appetite suppression points treatment. Dave INCLUDES treatment of these points with his program fees.


How much do Dave’s other laser therapy quit therapy programs cost?

The rest of Dave’s Laser Therapy Quit Programs for alcohol, marijuana, drugs, compulsive behaviors, stress, and others cost $350+ taxes. Each program includes two treatments, just like his Ottawa Laser Therapy Quit Smoking Program. The second treatment must be utilized within two weeks of the first treatment.


How much do booster treatments cost?

If required, additional treatments beyond the 2 included with each program cost $85+taxes.


I’m concerned about weight gain after I quit smoking — what can you do?

Unlike the competition which typically charges an extra $100 for treatment of appetite suppression points, Lazer Dave INCLUDES appetite suppression and weight-loss point stimulation with his treatment programs for smoking cessation. The theory and science behind treating these points is to keep your appetite in check and to boost your metabolism after quitting smoking.


How soon can I make an appointment?

Usually within a week or so. Dave generally advises one week to prepare yourself ahead of your first treatment (i.e., your “quit date”). This will afford time for you to complete the health history form and review the Laser Quit Therapy Prep Guide.

Please call our KANATA Physiocare location in OTTAWA at 613-254-5639 to schedule your first appointment.


Do I really need to read the Laser Quit Therapy Prep Guide?

Yes. Preparation and the commitment to change you bring to your first treatment is EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT as receiving laser treatment.

Dave will assume you have read, at minimum, the first two pages of his guide and instituted as many of his suggestions as possible before your first treatment.

Choosing not to read the Prep Guide ahead of time and thereby not preparing yourself before your first appointment means you should not be surprised that it may take extra booster treatment(s) beyond the 2 treatments included with each laser quit program to promote the results you are seeking.

While the results of laser therapy for the purposes of addictions like quitting smoking, alcohol, drugs, and stress are often positive — laser therapy is NOT a magical pill and may actually require some serious effort and preparation on your part to be successful.


When is the best time to book an appointment?

Typically, when you are thinking about quitting, as it is very easy to come up with an excuse to put off quitting smoking, alcohol, marijuana, drugs, sugar, stress, or similar — don’t fall into this trap.

With this being said, Dave generally recommends people schedule their first appointment during a time when their stress levels are not likely to be abnormally high. However, at the same time, and with the way the world is nowadays — there may never be the “perfect” time to book your appointment.

What is most important is your motivation/intent to quit and Dave’s availability, so let that ultimately guide you when choosing your appointment time(s).


Where are you located?

Dave works exclusively from the Kanata Physiocare location in Ottawa at 5035 Innovation Drive. Follow this link for more information: SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT.


What if I am a very heavy smoker or user?

The Ottawa Laser Therapy To Quit Smoking program is effective whether you smoke a little or a lot. Moreover, it does not matter whether you smoke cigarettes, vape, chew tobacco, use nicotine gum, smoke a pipe, consume cigars, etc. laser treatment is typically very effective for all consumption methods.


Can I transfer “unused” treatments to someone else?

No. Treatments are only usable by the original purchaser of the Program.
