Laser therapy has a 12 year history with constantly high success rates for smoking cessation. Clinics regularly report in excess of 70% for initial smoking cessation with sustained levels a year later being around 40-50%. Latest medical research has shown that a 4 treatment programme results in a 79% initial quit rate of which 51% are still smoke free 6 months later. This compares extremely favourably with other methods (nicotine replacement therapy for example offers a success rate of just 17%).
The Strawberry laser smoking cessation treatment works by stimulating acupuncture points which work directly on how the body processes addiction. In addition, laser therapy has been independently proven to elevate endorphin levels (as does nicotine), thereby minimising the irritability which often accompanies nicotine withdrawal. Together these effects from the treatment reduce or eliminate cravings and improve the smokers mood, which when combined with willpower gives the smoker a fighting chance of quitting for good.
Treatments involve the smoker visiting the clinic over 2 weeks for around 4 treatments for just 30 minutes. To administer the treatment, the clinician positions the laser’s probe against the relevant acupuncture points (located in the ears and hands). It is advised that laser therapy for smoking cessation is combined within a broader support framework to include counselling. By addressing social and psychological factors simultaneously, the smoker is able to take full advantage of the craving free opportunity laser therapy provides.
