As you probably know, smoking is bad for you. Laser acupuncture is now used to help a person to quit smoking. It is a new approach.
Introduction to Laser Acupuncture To Quit Smoking But if you’ve heard of acupuncture being used to help people quit smoking, you will have an idea of what a laser stop smoking treatment is. Acupuncture is an ancient medicinal art and has been used to assist those trying to kick their nicotine addictions for nearly thirty years; laser stop smoking treatment first appeared in 1989. The theory behind both treatments is that they stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, leaving the patient in a state of deeply relaxed well-being. Laser acupuncture to quit smoking is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. Acupuncture involves needles being inserted into key pressure points on various parts of the body stimulating the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal chord and brain. This will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system
The process is not painful and patients are then left to relax for half an hour or so. The needles are then removed except for two tiny ones, which remain in the ear. The idea is to touch an ear lobe when a craving comes on. There are no clinical tests to prove the effectiveness of acupuncture in helping people give up, but some smokers have found it valuable.
During the laser acupuncture to quit smoking session energy is applied to points on your hands, face, and ears. If a client feels the sensation from the low-level laser, they may feel a warm, pulsating and sometimes-tingling feeling. Some clients may only feel a calming sensation from the laser, or no sensation at all.
Laser acupuncture to quit smoking is a new treatment developed by a former smoker, which uses a painless, low-powered laser to stimulate energy points on the body. These in turn stimulate production of endorphins - the body's natural pain relief chemicals - and, theoretically, relieve nicotine cravings. There are no clinical tests to prove the effectiveness of laser treatment in helping people give up
In other words, the effectiveness of the laser acupuncture to quit smoking treatment has not been officially established, so there is no guarantee it will work for you. But if you don’t mind spending the money, and have tried everything else to quit, you can always take the chance that you will be one of the lucky ones for whom it really works.
