Stop your cravings and Quit Smoking in Melbourne with Laser Therapy

We offer a Quit Smoking program in Melbourne using Cold Laser Therapy. It could be the support you need for success.

AcuQuit is a quit smoking laser treatment aimed at reducing physical withdrawal symptoms. By reducing these physical withdrawal symptoms it then becomes possible to quit.

The smoking rate of Australian adults has almost halved since 1995. Statistics show that as of 2019, 10.6% of Victorian adults still smoked daily.

Smoking and the use of e-cigarettes (vaping) is prohibited in all enclosed workplaces. It is also banned at certain public spaces where members of the public gather.

In July 2021, the Future Melbourne Committee endorsed the Smoke-free Melbourne Policy. Melbourne is now the first city in Australia to have a comprehensive framework to protect the community from the harms of smoking. This policy will guide the creation of more smoke-free areas and reduce smoking in our city. It will help people to quit and create a healthy and safe environment for everyone.

We do not rely on drugs or hypnosis/hypnotherapy techniques in our approach to helping individuals quit smoking.

Does Laser to Stop Smoking really work?

Many studies are available that explore the part Acupuncture plays in addiction. They also look at Acupuncture’s capacity to reduce and eradicate 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. [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 2008 Kerr study on laser stimulation is strongly positive at both short and long-term outcomes. [3] This was stated in the most recent Cochrane Systematic Review (White 2014).

Earlier research had shown that Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate in heavy smoking patients. [4]

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 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.
