Stop Smoking Today
Smoking Cessation (Nicotine Addiction)
The addiction to cigarettes has been compared to the dependency of cocaine and heroin. Over the years there has been many stop or quit smoking programs with varied results. Most of these programs, including the “gum” and the “patch”, have been drug (nicotine) based. Common sense dictates that replacing an addictive substance with another addictive substance is not an effective form of treatment.
Ontario Laser Health Centres program includes a two sided approach. We deal with both the physical and psychological sides of the addiction. First we deal with the physical side , the nasty withdrawl symptoms of the drug.
The Physical Side: The laser therapist uses a soft laser to target energy points on the body. Focusing the laser beam on these areas causes the body to release natural chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins have a calming, relaxing effect on the body that helps to reduce nicotine craving and withdrawal symptoms. Some clients report a feeling a euphoria following a smoking cessation treatment with the laser. In addition to stimulating an endorphin release, the laser stimulates the body's natural ability to detoxify the nicotine, getting the ex-smoker through the nicotine withdrawal more quickly.
The Psychological Side: The therapist will educate and counsel you on techniques, tips and helpful hints on how to beat the psychological issues. We will discuss the differneces between physical and psychological craving, how to break the habit, detox and supplements in order to succeed as a non-smoker. All clients will receive a smokers handbook, a relaxation cd and 2 months of followup.
Follow-up: Ontario Laser Health Centre will track your progress and followup with you on a regular basis. In order to assure your success, we offer 2 months of followup. This includes free boosters in order to keep your successful!
