What Is Laser Therapy To Quit Smoking?

Laser therapy is a safe and effective way to help you quit smoking by reducing nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms — making it much easier for smokers to quit.

The treatment involves the use of sophisticated European low-level laser therapy technology to specific points on the ears, face, hands, and feet in order to boost endorphins and break the cycle of nicotine withdrawal. This technique is rooted in medical acupuncture and auricular therapy with the advantage of using no acupuncture needles.

Laser therapy is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), cold laser therapy, laser acupuncture and photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT).

About Nicotine Withdrawal

Nicotine withdrawal has been said to parallel that of cocaine and heroin. The partially due to the availability of tobacco and the dependent nature of nicotine. Over the past two decades, stop smoking programs have come and gone. Most of these programs or strategies, including nicotine gum, the “patch” and others show a success rate of only 30-35%. Moreover, the patch and gum are nicotine based – common sense dictates that you should not use nicotine to overcome nicotine!
