Laser Quit smoking therapy with AcuQuit

AcuQuit is a Laser Quit Smoking treatment performed by qualified health practitioners.

We have developed a multi-therapy approach to smoking cessation. We aim to reduce physical withdrawal symptoms to allow you to stop smoking.

Laser Acupuncture to Quit Smoking

AcuQuit’s stop smoking treatment utilises Laser Acupuncture therapy. This is a non-invasive approach that does not use Acupuncture needles.

A qualified healthcare professional uses laser therapy on specific Acupuncture points during treatment.

Our treatment goal is to reduce physical withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking. This includes cravings, irritability, and anxiety, while improving health and promoting well-being. This will result in successful cessation of smoking. The total duration of treatment is around 45-60 minutes.

What are the Benefits of Using Laser Therapy for Smoking Cessation?

Many methods and therapies are available for the treatment of Acupuncture points. We use cold Laser therapy as the preferred method in our practice. It is suitable for individuals who feel uncomfortable with needles. Cold Laser therapy does not damage cell tissue. This is because the levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. There is also no penetration or piercing of the skin during our treatment process.

Laser Acupuncture to Quit Vaping and to Quit E-Cigarettes

Our laser acupuncture therapy can help individuals in quitting their addiction to cigarettes. This includes laser to quit vaping e-cigarettes.

The presence of nicotine in vapes is what makes it difficult to break away completely. Moreover, vaping can expose users to higher levels of nicotine than traditional smoking. This is because vaping cartridges often contain concentrated or extra-strength nicotine. By adjusting the voltage of e-cigarettes, users receive a stronger dose of nicotine. Laser acupuncture can help with nicotine addiction in both cigarette and e-cigarette smokers.

Is Laser Quit Smoking Treatment Effective?

Several research studies and reviews have explored the impact of Acupuncture on addiction. These studies have examined Acupuncture’s capacity to diminish and eliminate addiction.

Laser Acupuncture had an 84% success rate in recent research (Lim 2018). Many participants reporting that they no longer had the urge to smoke. [1]

Laser acupoint stimulation does indeed modify the physical symptoms of withdrawal. This makes it possible for motivated persons to succeed in overcoming habitual smoking of tobacco. This was the conclusion of a double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized study. [2]

The most recent Cochrane Systematic Review (White 2014) looked at treatment outcomes. It stated that the 2008 Kerr study on laser stimulation is strongly positive at both short and long-term outcomes.[3]

Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate on heavy smoking patients in early research. [4]

This research shows that Laser Acupuncture treatments and protocols can produce positive results. Conflicting findings from some studies have led to a mixed conclusion on effectiveness

The AcuQuit treatment is unique with regards to it’s treatment methods. Themis means that outcomes may differ from existing research. Please consider this when making an informed decision as success is not guaranteed.
