Laser therapy to help you quit smoking and quit for good.
The AcuQuit® treatment is Laser Acupuncture therapy (without needles) designed to reduce your cravings for cigarettes and stop the addiction.
AcuQuit® is performed by AcuQuit® therapists who are health practitioners registered with the Australian Government. They are qualified and experienced to perform this treatment.
For information on how AcuQuit® works click here.
The treatment has been designed to reduce the physical symptoms of nicotine addiction and withdrawal (such as cravings) to enable people to quit smoking. The overall treatment time is approximately 30 minutes.
Our treatment is drug free and we do not use any quit smoking hypnosis or quit smoking hypnotherapy techniques.
There are many research articles available examining Acupuncture’s role in addiction and the potential for treatment to reduce and eliminate dependency.
Laser Acupuncture had an 84% success rate in recent research (Lim 2018) with many participants reporting they no longer had the urge to smoke. 
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, concluded a double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized study. 
The most recent Cochrane Systematic Review (White 2014) states that the 2008 Kerr study on laser stimulation is strongly positive at both short and long-term outcomes. 
Earlier research had shown that Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate in heavy smoking patients. 
This external research suggests that Laser Acupuncture treatments and protocols may provide beneficial outcomes however other papers did not have the same findings so the evidence is regarded as mixed. The AcuQuit treatment is unique and so 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.
