What is Laser Therapy?
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been used for decades in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. Laser therapy is painless andnon-invasive, using only a handheld low-powered laser for external application. One of the most innovative and promising uses for this technology is in helping people overcome their addiction to nicotine.
How does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy for smoking cessation works by applying pressure to a specific combination of points on the body related to nicotine addiction, similar to the 5,000 year old art of acupressure. Activating these points on the body has demonstrated an ability to end nicotine dependence.
Can I Participate in the Clinical Trial?

The clinical trial for smoking cessation is open to the public and will help in establishing laser therapy as a proven treatment for nicotine addiction.
