Does Laser to Stop Smoking really work?

There are many research articles available examining Acupuncture’s role in addiction and the potential for treatment to reduce and eliminate dependency.

Early research showed that Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate in a preliminary report conducted on heavy smoking patients. [1]

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. [2]

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

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.
