Stop your cravings and Quit Smoking in Brisbane with AcuQuit Laser Therapy

We offer a Quit Smoking Laser treatment at our Brisbane clinic. Tobacco consumption continues to be a leading cause of preventable diseases in Australia.

We are offering our laser treatment to all Brisbane region residents. Approximately 10.4% of Queensland adults in 2022 smoked daily whilst 4.7% smoked less often than daily. [1] Statistics from 2014 have also shown that 28% of Queensland men aged between 25 and 34 smoke every day. Approximately 16.7% of women in the same age bracket smoke every day. This makes the 25-34 year old age bracket the group with the highest percentage of smokers.

The treatment goal is to reduce physical symptoms of nicotine addiction and withdrawal. This includes symptoms such as cravings, anxiety, and irritability. By mitigating these symptoms, it becomes feasible to quit smoking. The typical duration of treatment is around 45-60 minutes.

We use a drug-free approach in our treatment. There are no hypnotherapy methods such as hypnosis used in our treatment.

Does Laser to Stop Smoking really work?

Many research articles exist that explore the involvement of Acupuncture in addiction. They look at Acupuncture’s potential to diminish and eradicate nicotine dependence.

Laser Acupuncture had an 84% success rate in recent search (Lim 2018). Many participants reporting they no longer had the urge to smoke. [2]

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. [3]

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.[4]

Earlier research had shown that Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate in heavy smoking patients. [5]

This research suggests that Laser Acupuncture treatments and protocols may provide beneficial outcomes. Other papers did not have the same findings so the evidence is regarded as mixed. The AcuQuit treatment is unique. Treatment methods and results will vary from available research. We encourage patients to make an informed decision knowing that success cannot be guaranteed with our treatment.

Brisbane Hypnosis for Quitting Smoking

There is a substantial difference between a Quit Smoking Hypnosis clinic in Brisbane and Laser to Quit Smoking. Our laser practitioners hold recognition from the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency as registered health professionals, whereas hypnosis is not an officially recognized profession by the government.

There is a noticeable distinction between education and training. Our laser practitioners have at least a 4-year Bachelor’s degree, while a majority of Quit Smoking Hypnosis Gold Coast practitioners only possess a 1-year Diploma in clinical hypnotherapy.
