Laser Therapy from your Pelham Chiropractor to Quit Smoking
When you arrive at your first appointment with your Pelham chiropractor, you will be asked to complete basic contact information and information about your smoking habit/addiction. We will then give you an overview of our laser stop smoking program explaining how laser therapy works and what to expect. One of our staff members will then review strategies to help you cope with the following:
While at your appointment, we will give you instructions for supplemental ideas to promote healthy feelings and accelerate healing. We offer you these tools to help you be successful, and they are designed to enhance your laser therapy experience. We also want to improve your chances at long-term success and help you avoid ever wanting a cigarette again.
The laser treatment that is used to help you quit smoking requires that you position yourself on a comfortable chair. You will be in a room with warm colors and calming sounds in the background to help calm your nerves and allow you to be completely relaxed. You will then be asked to wear a pair of protective goggles over your eyes. A total of 33 areas will be stimulated on the following areas:
Each area will be targeted for a total of 30 seconds.
How Does the Treatment Work with a Chiro In Pelham?
The laser will focus on various areas to simulate the calming effect of nicotine on the body. By doing this, it will alleviate the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that many people often experience when quitting smoking such as:
- Inability to focus
- Depressed mood
You will feel the effects of the laser smoking treatment throughout the four to six week physical withdrawal period.
How Many Visits Will You Need With Your Pelham Chiropractor?
Only a single, one-hour visit is necessary to quit smoking with our laser treatment. You are encouraged to return for a second visit, within eight weeks if uncontrollable cravings or feelings surface after your initial appointment.
This visit will re-stimulate the release of the calming neuro-chemicals to keep you on the course and help you stay away from cigarettes. It is vital that you understand that this follow-up appointment is only effective if you HAVE NOT smoked since your first visit. If you find that you need additional help after the second visit, booster visits are available.
Can the Laser Therapy Work For Chewing Tobacco?
Chewing tobacco is just as addictive as smoking cigarettes, and laser therapy can alleviate the discomfort of withdrawing from nicotine in ANY form. Individuals addicted to the following are also appropriate candidates for Laser Therapy:
- Smokeless tobacco products
- Nicotine Replacement Therapies

Will You Gain Weight After Laser Therapy For Smoking?
If you are concerned about gaining weight after you quit smoking, you can try our laser therapy for weight loss as well. You can add this treatment on if you are interested and it was designed to optimize the metabolic rate and suppress your appetite, even while quitting smoking.
What Happens If You Relapse After Treatment?
If you experience a setback by smoking a cigarette following your treatment, another full laser smoking treatment will be needed. This is why you will be encouraged to return for a follow-up appointment so that you can avoid relapsing in the beginning.
Will Treatment Work If You Do Not Want To Quit Smoking?
You will not want to invest in laser therapy unless you actually want to stop smoking. While some clients who not have a sincere commitment to quit have are successful, we do not want you to chance relapsing because you are not ready to quit. We recommend waiting until you are willing to stop before you come to our office for laser stop smoking treatment.
Does the Treatment Hurt?
The laser stop smoking treatment at our office is completely painless. In addition to that, the treatment does not have any known negative side effects at all. In fact, you will not feel a thing during your treatment. The most that you will feel is a gentle pressure from the laser probe against your skin in the areas that we mentioned above.
