Research has shown that smokers, alcohol and drugs addicts, compulsive gamblers and overeaters have higher blood/endorphin levels than non-addicts. Stimulated by routinely inhaling nicotine, taking a drug or alcohol, endorphin production is constantly being 'nudged up' above normal level. Knowing that endorphin is a pleasure/satisfaction neurochemical, it makes perfect sense that addicts are satisfied until that level starts to drop and out come the addictive substances again. When, for example, smokers just quit smoking their blood/endorphin level drops substantially causing dissatisfaction and in some cases anxiety.
QUIT BY LASER® therapy is a proven way to stimulate endorphin production naturally. The laser beam is applied to various points of the human body. Infrared light is absorbed by light receptors in the cells. The energy is then converted to biochemical energy and dispersed gradually over the next 6-8 week. The points that are chosen correspond with nerve endings that will trigger endorphin release, activate the sympathetic nervous response (relaxation response) and help to cleanse the body.

1. How does the stop smoking treatment work?
We use is a soft, low-intensity cold laser beam. It is non-invasive, and there is no heat or pain associated with our treatment. Some clients experience a feeling of euphoria following a smoking cessation treatment.
We apply the laser to various points on the body. Focusing the laser beam on the ears, nose, and hands causes the body to release natural chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins have a calming and relaxing effect on the body that helps reduce nicotine craving and withdrawal symptoms. Additionally the release of endorphins stimulates the body's natural ability to detoxify and allows the body to rid itself of nicotine more quickly.
2. How long does the treatment take?
The procedure takes about 25 minutes to complete. You will be asked to fill out some paperwork. The total time spent in the office will be approximately thirty minutes.
