Frequently Asked Questions about the Stop Smoking Laser
What is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?
LLLT is the application of a cold "pure" laser light to treat conditions such as smoking, weight loss or stress. Low Level Laser Therapy has been used successfully to treat many kinds of injuries because it promotes healing and tissue repair. It has also been used to treat ulcers and increase healing time in wounds. HLC uses low level laser therapy to treat clients who would like to quit smoking, lose weight or become less stressed.
What makes Low Level Laser Therapy work?
The laser reaches through the skin to stimulate nerve endings. The treatment is similar to acupuncture in that we treat acupuncture meridian points with the low level laser. Low level laser is currently under investigation in the U.S. to see if it boosts endorphin production, which is produced normally by you and is natures own mood lifter and anesthetic. This endorphin production may relieve the cravings and withdrawal symptoms of quitting smoking to keep you calm and relaxed.
Is LLLT safe?
Low level laser therapy is completely non-invasive. We use a cold laser, not to be confused with a hot, surgical laser. The laser is considered a "non-significant risk medical device". It has been used in England, Canada and Europe for over 20 years. There are no side effects associated with our laser treatment to quit smoking. The therapy is completely painless and extremely relaxing. Most clients tend to fall asleep during the treatment.
What type of low level laser do you use?
HLC uses a cold, low level laser for therapy. The laser that we use is imported from Canada and is the best in the business. A low level laser system must have enough power and be calibrated with the right wavelength to be effective for the quit smoking and weight loss treatments. Our lasers are high quality and state of the art. Laser are used by doctors and chiropractors for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis and pain management. You will find other people trying this method using cheap, inferior 5 mW lasers that do not provide enough power for the therapy to work. Our lasers have been designed specifically for quitting smoking or losing weight and they do that very well.
What if I can't be hypnotized?
HALT is an integrated process. Each element by itself can effectively help you stop smoking. HALT uses various protocols that are very safe and thoroughly researched and tested. Even if the Hypnosis or Tapping portion were not included the use of low level laser alone would be very highly effective in helping you eliminate nicotine cravings however bolstered by hypnotic NLP and tapping positive suggestions can help make your subconscious mind even more determined to quit for good!
What if I use chewing tobacco or dip?
HALT treats people who dip, vape, smoke pipes, cigars or even flavored tobacco hookahs. If you have a nicotine addiction, we can help. The process of Hypnosis NLP and EFT with Lasers is very powerful!
How does your clinic compare with other laser clinics?
What separates us from other clinics is that we don't apply the laser for 20 minutes and send you home like others. After extensive research we have developed a combination method approach thatworks to provide you the best possible quitting experience. Our in-depth Hypnosis session can assist with the behavioral aspects of quitting. You also receive a folder and outline detailing exactly what you should expect before and after the treatment. You should expect to spend about an hour with us for your therapy. You will also have the option to receive further coaching, positive hypnotic re-inforcement or receive follow up laser treatments that you can use within a 12 month period to use for youself if you need them. This provides good insurance that you will remain a non-smoker.
We understand what smokers are going through when they quit smoking and we hold ourselves to the highest standards in helping you to quit smoking, dipping or chewing. The laser technique is widely recognized because of the many news stories that were produced about the success of the method and the many media/radio personalities and celebrities that have used it to quit smoking.
Will this treatment hurt?
Most people describe an extremely relaxed feeling after the laser session. The laser is a cold laser and does not hurt. The laser that we use is a class iii cold laser, not to be confused with a hot, or surgical laser. Many of our clients end up falling asleep within minutes of starting the therapy because it is so relaxing.
Will I gain weight?
Weight gain may be avoidable when quitting smoking. Studies conducted in other countries have shown little to no weight gain with LLLT. Drinking water for the next few weeks after quitting will help you to feel fuller. Laser therapy keeps you relaxed so that you don't decide to reach for food rather than a cigarette. We also treat points that boost your metabolism.
What points do you focus the laser on?
We treat points on the ears, face, wrists and hands. We have a 3 step process for this treatment:
1st - We treat points for nicotine addiction to help block the body's need for nicotine.
2nd - We target diet points to control your appetite and avoid excessive weight gain.
3rd - We laser stress and relaxation points to avoid withdrawal symptoms and reducing tension!
Will my medical insurance cover the cost of therapy?
We do not personally accept insurance but many insurance companies will reimburse you for your treatment. We can print out a detailed receipt that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. We also accept flexible spending accounts and can be added to your companies insurance plan. END Smoking Clinics works with many corporations to provide a discount rate to their employees. Inquire with your Human Resources Manager or Benefits Coordinator about getting an employee discount plan.
Are there other approaches I can use to quit smoking besides the HALT method?
Quit Cold Turkey. Regardless of what method you choose, these tips from the Mayo Clinic may help:
Spread the word. Tell your family, friends and co-workers that you’re planning to quit smoking. Ask anyone in your household who smokes to quit with you.
Make it inconvenient to smoke. Keep your cigarettes in the car when you’re in the house or working. Smoke with the “opposite” hand. Buy only one pack of cigarettes at a time. Switch to brands you don’t like.
Cut back. Delay your first cigarette of the day. Smoke only half the cigarette. Trade one smoking break a day for a brisk walk or other physical activity.
Change your habits. Avoid anything that tempts you to smoke. You might switch to water or soda instead of coffee or alcohol, go places where smoking isn’t allowed, or hang out with people who don’t smoke.
Count down to a quit date. Pick a date to quit smoking. Clearly mark it on the calendar. Give yourself a few days or weeks to prepare, but don’t postpone the date too far.
Toss your smoking gear. As your quit date approaches, get rid of your lighters, ashtrays and stashed cigarettes.
Learn from your mistakes. If you’ve tried to quit before, think about what went wrong and what you could do differently this time.
Are there any health conditions for which low level laser therapy is not recommended?
LLLT is not recommended for those who have blockages, tumors, active cancers or for those who are undergoing radiation, chemotherapy or those who are pregnant.
