Physical nicotine addiction is based in the brain. The nicotine rush or "hit" received from smoking is amplified by the presence of ammonia in cigarettes. This surge of nicotine releases endorphins that satisfy you temporarily. Typically after 20 minutes the levels drop substantially causing you to "crave" more nicotine. At this point a smoker will start to feel physical stress and aggitation, and the desire to have the endorphin levels restored (cravings).
A laser therapy treatment stimulates the body to release natural chemicals called endorphins that saturate the serotonin receptors in the brain. The endorphin levels will gradually decrease over the next 30 days following treatment. This eliminates the rapidly fluctuating levels of serotonin and alleviates the physical stresses of the nicotine addiction ( stops the physical nicotine cravings).
The therapist will apply infrared laser light to specific acupuncture or energy points located on the ears, wrists, hands, legs, and feet with a laser probe. We call this Acu-Laser.
Your Acu-Laser treatment has a calming, relaxing effect on the body and some clients report a feeling of euphoria following a treatment. A typical session takes between 45 and 60 minutes.
The therapist will educate and council you on how to beat the psychological issues. We will discuss the difference between physical and psychological cravings, how to break the habit, and offer advice on detoxification and supplements in order to succeed as a non-smoker.
