We offer a laser therapy treatment to help you quit smoking cigarettes
On the Sunshine Coast 17% of people are smokers, which is the same rate as Queensland. Overall in Australia 16.1% of people are cigarette smokers.
The AcuQuit® treatment is Laser Acupuncture (without needles) designed to reduce your cravings for cigarettes and stop the addiction.
AcuQuit® is performed by AcuQuit® specialists 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.
Early research showed that Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate in a preliminary report conducted on heavy smoking patients.
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.
This external research suggests that Laser Acupuncture treatments and protocols may be effective 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.
