Are you or someone you know having trouble quitting smoking? Are you tired of trying expensive patches and programs that don’t work? At Activa Clinics we offer you a drug free, patch free and pain free Smoking Cessation Program. Using the latest technology, in just a few short sessions, we can help you stop smoking.
Many stop smoking programs such as nicotine gums and patches are drug based. We believe that replacing one addictive substance with another does not make sense. Our Smoking Cessation Program uses Theralase cold laser to help you deal with the physical side effects of quitting such as withdrawal symptoms.
Using Theralase cold laser, we target energy points on the body, which stimulate the body to detoxify nicotine and cause the body to release endorphins. Endorphins are natural chemicals produced by the body, which have a calming and pain reducing effect. These endorphins replace the nicotine triggered endorphins that smokers are addicted to, thereby reducing the craving for nicotine and withdrawal symptoms. The endorphins also assist in sleeping, reduce stress and give you a general sense of well being.
Laser therapy also causes a change in taste thresholds or the perceived taste of tobacco, making it less desirable and even objectionable. This lowers the overall desire to continue smoking.
Activa practitioners are there every step of the way to educate you on techniques to beat the associated psychological issues by giving you helpful hints, discussing the differences between psychological and physical cravings, so you can break the habit and detoxify.
The program includes Cold Laser Therapy, one-on-one session with your health care provider to monitor progress, stress-reduction home exercise program and take-home kit, and nutirional guidence sessions.
