Nicotine Addiction

Smoking Cessation

Nicotine Addiction

If you’ve had difficulty quitting smoking in the past because of withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting cold turkey (irritability, anxiety, tension, nervousness, inability to focus, short-tempered) or side effects or a dependency on nicotine replacement therapies (patch, gum, inhalers) and drugs (Wellbutrin, Zyban, Chantix), laser therapy can help!!

For the treatment of smoking cessation Global Wellness utilizes a low level laser to stimulate specific energy points located in the ears, face and hands. These contain the nerve endings directly connected with nicotine addiction. Treatment with the laser helps to promote the release of endorphins, which are the brain's natural feel good chemicals that relieve stress and anxiety making it easier to cope with the addiction, withdrawal symptoms, and cravings most commonly associated with quitting. As one patient explained, it’s a lot easier to quit when your body isn’t screaming for nicotine.

When addressing the addiction, it is important to remember that the human body works in conjunction with the often forgotten psyche. Global Wellness programs are designed to address these aspects and integrate a 'Mind and Body' approach to therapy. We use the CSA and FDA approved laser to treat the physical aspect of the addiction, and to enhance overall success, Global Wellness certified technicians will incorporate a behaviour modification program to help treat the habit aspect of the addiction; which assures a smooth transition to a healthier way of life.

Our highly trained staff will help to educate and counsel you during your treatment session. You will be given the knowledge and skills necessary to live a smoke free lifestyle. Essential topics such as, nutrition, detoxification and overall health will also be discussed; helping you remain smoke-free once and for all.

With over two decades of research and development, the Matrix Laser Therapy Systems have achieved one of the highest success rates of all stop-smoking programs. Treatments are safe, painless, drug free and highly effective. Available exclusively at Global Wellness Chiropractic & Laser Centre. We take a multi-disciplined approach to therapy addressing the following components.

  • Relieving the physical need for nicotine without the use of a drug
  • Supporting an addiction-free lifestyle by implementing specific behaviour modification techniques
