Halifax Quit Smoking Clinic specializes in Smoking Cessation Treatment using Laser Acupuncture which involves low level laser beams being used to stimulate acupuncture points. Laser is used both as a non-needle alternative and as a medium in its own right with its own distinct energizing characteristics, and is used for treating tobacco addition.

There is no pain, no drugs to take and no side effects. Laser therapy works on the same principle as acupuncture, but without needles. By stimulating certain trigger points in your body, signals are sent to your Nervous System that release chemicals into your muscles, spinal cord and brain. At the same time, they release other chemicals such as endorphins and encephalin plus hormones into your bloodstream. These influence your body’s internal regulating system and will help you to quit smoking once and for all. Success rate overall for laser smoking cessation treatment is 85-90%


Our Laser Smoking Cessation Treatments at Halifax Quit Smoking Clinic use acupuncture points on your body to release endorphins using low-level laser to simulate your body's endorphin levels and eliminates the need for nicotine fix and avoiding the symptoms commonly associated with nicotine withdraw. The low level laser technology we use in clinic has been used in counties for decades and is painless, safe and effective without the use of needles (as in traditional acupuncture)  and we offer additional pressure points for weight management at no extra charge to help avoid the effects of addiction withdrawal

What is Nicotine + Why am I addicted?

Nicotine is usually a colorless or in some cases yellowish liquid. Small doses of nicotine are used as a stimulant, mostly in tobacco and pesticides, however, higher doses can be toxic and can interfere with the normal functioning of autonomic nerve and skeletal muscle cells.

Nicotine addiction is dependence on the drug nicotine, however, when we say nicotine addiction, we usually refer to the addiction to tobacco products that contain nicotine. Nicotine possesses mood-altering capabilities which give the user a temporary high. This high is extremely pleasing and makes the user want to use it more and more. Put simply, once you use it for long enough, you can’t stop using it. And those who try to quit, have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms which momentarily go away when they get the fix in the form of a nicotine dose.

Although, quitting is not easy, but it’s very much possible. Hundreds of thousands of smokers have done it and, if an addict, you can do it too. The good news according to Centre for Decease Control fact sheet is that today, there are more ex-smokers than current smokers.

How Low Level Laser Therapy Works ... 

Low-level laser therapy utilizes principles similar to the ancient healing art of acupuncture – a technique of inserting and gently stimulating hair-thin needles into specific points of the body to trigger a natural healing response. Laser Intervention’s low-level lasers simulate a very similar response by emitting a fine-point cold laser into your skin which stimulates your body’s endorphin production system

Endorphins are natural chemicals in your body that signal your internal system to decrease stress and increase energy. These are the same chemicals inside your body that nicotine stimulates, and after smoking for a short period, also controls their reproduction.

Our laser therapy at Halifax Quit Smoking Clinic offers Nova Scotians, an easy and non-intrusive process with no known side-effects that allows your body to quickly restore its natural endorphin production. Laser Therapy utilizes a 100% safe, non-thermal, cold low-level laser to stimulate specific trigger points on your body that control the release of endorphins in your system. Over the course of a single hourly Laser Treatment Session, your body will restart natural reproduction of endorphins

This rebalancing of your body’s endorphin levels will allow it to remove nicotine from its system and help you to comfortably ride out the normal “nicotine withdrawal period” of three to five days.
