WHAT TO EXPECT
A brief medical summary will be conducted by a professional staff member who will also explain details of the iQuit Treatment.
The treatment is totally painless and entirely safe. Suma Wellness Center's “iQuit” plan utilizes a low-level laser which works on specific points of the body. Laser therapy is considered a highly effective contemporary form of acupuncture. A cold, soft light contacts specific points of the body, which aids in controlling addictions, enhancing relaxation and creating a state of well being while combating nicotine cravings.
Your office visit and treatment will take approximately a half hour. This includes a review of the treatment, addiction, behavior modification techniques and post visit instructions.
WHAT IS LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY
Low level laser or soft laser is similar to the type of laser that is used by surveyors, or compact discs. The soft laser produces a beam of light at a high wavelength and low energy with no more power than a 60 watt light bulb. It is a pure form of light energy of a specific color that has properties which are helpful in controlling addictions and enhancing relaxation. The procedure is painless, yet highly effective.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Some of the largest stumbling blocks to becoming smoke-free are stress, anxiety, and depression associated with quitting. When applied to specific Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian and auricular points, the laser helps to stimulate the production of endorphins which are the body’s natural chemical pain suppressors. The increased production of this chemical suppresses your urge for nicotine. Specific acupoints are selected in the ear and wrist. Points of contact involve craving, withdrawal, anxiety, as well as a number of appetite suppression points that prevent the transfer of addiction to food, overeating, and gaining weight.
Low-level laser treatment calms, and relaxes the mind, reducing anxiety and alleviating depressive feelings, making it overwhelmingly easier to cope with the addiction withdrawal symptoms and cravings, that arise from giving up nicotine.
Additional points may be included to help suppress appetite, stimulate repair and healing of organ systems, and reduce food and nicotine cravings.
WHAT REACTIONS WILL YOU HAVE?
You will feel a sense of relaxation, and it is common for some people to feel sleepy approximately one hour later. Rest is highly recommended after the treatment. Some patients experience drowsiness and/or light-headedness, as a result of laser biostimulation. TEMPORARY weight gain, limited to 3-5 pounds, may be experienced as your body adjusts to a new metabolism, however appetite suppression areas are used in our treatment to ensure weight control.
