In plain English, Laser Therapy follows the basic theories of acupuncture or acupressure. These same points are stimulated with a low level (cold) laser. The proper combination of points can have a wide variety of therapeutic effects. The laser is particularly effective with addiction treatments, weight management, pain management and treatment of soft tissue injuries.
Alberta Laser Therapy specializes in the treatment of Nicotine Addiction with Laser Therapy. With 15 years of experience, we have helped a few thousand people to quit smoking. While there are notable similarities between laser therapy and acupuncture, Alberta Laser Therapy does not employ an acupuncturist or offer needle acupuncture treatments.
Over the last 30 years, low-level lasers (laser therapy) have been developed as an effective tool for the treatment of smoking cessation, weight loss, pain relief and many other conditions and is now gaining widespread international recognition.
The use of laser therapy is safe, painless, drug free and highly effective. After 30 years of use, there are no known side effects associated with laser therapy. The benefits of laser therapy are well documented and over 2500 research reports have been published world-wide. Studies show that up to 80% of people who have received laser therapy have responded positively to the therapy (Laser Therapy – Clinical Practice & Scientific Background: Tuner & Hode, 2002).
