AcuQuit is a Laser treatment performed by qualified health practitioners which has been designed to help you quit smoking and stop smoking for good. We are Australia’s largest Laser to quit smoking company with clinics available in most capital cities.
The AcuQuit stop smoking treatment is a safe and non-invasive procedure where Laser Acupuncture is applied to the body. Laser Acupuncture is different to regular Acupuncture as it does not involve any needles. During the treatment, laser light is applied by a qualified health practitioner to a selection of Acupuncture points on the body.
The Acupuncture points chosen for our quit smoking treatment are designed to reduce your cravings for cigarettes and stop the addiction through several different mechanisms. The overall treatment time is approximately 30-45 minutes.
There are many different techniques and therapies used on Acupuncture points. We choose to use Laser in our treatment because it provides an easy and comfortable treatment and is great for people who are concerned about the use of needles.
This is the most commonly asked question by people who are looking at quitting smoking with any method. There are many research articles available on Acupuncture for reducing or eliminating addictions. In one study conducted on heavy smoking patients Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate. Another study concludes that laser acupoint stimulation does indeed modify the physical symptoms of withdrawal and makes it possible for motivated persons to succeed in overcoming habitual smoking of tobacco.
