What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?
LLLT is based on acupuncture principles but instead of using needles it directs soft laser beams onto specific acupressure points of the body.
How Does It Work?
Cravings, lack of willpower and irritability are the three major obstacles to overcome when stopping smoking and are the main reasons for starting again. Because it stimulates endorphins (in the same way nicotine does), laser therapy is able to suppress physical cravings and enhance willpower, enabling a smoker to Quit for good.
What Does The Treatment Consist Of?
As well as laser therapy, clients receive counseling and back up support. Each client is also given a personalized strategy which helps to avoid relapse, weight gain and the weakening willpower. The program consists of a laser therapy session taking approximately 30 minutes.
How Successful Is The Treatment?
Excellent controlled medical research has shown how effective LLLT is, without the side effects of many other products on the market. You must want to stop smoking, and if you do the laser therapy will help you.
Can Anyone Have Laser Therapy?
Most people can. A full history is taken at the start of the treatment to ensure that no medical reason exists to prevent the therapy from going ahead.
Is It Painful?
No. Some clients may experience a slight feeling of warmth or a tingling sensation but most will feel nothing except for a wonderful relaxed feeling.
Is It Safe?
Laser Therapy has a good track record. The low level laser produces a cold laser beam and has been used for over 12 years for smoking cessation and it is a painless and relaxing treatment. Soft low intensity laser beams have been used for over 30 years to treat a wide variety of conditions from arthritis to soft tissue injuries and now they are used to help people Quit smoking for good.
What Is The Cost Of The Program?
Our treatment cost for one low level laser session is $495. Depending on level of cover, most private health insurers will also give a rebate.
