Low level laser therapy aims to “biostimulate”. Because of the low power nature of low level lasers, the effects are biochemical and not thermal thus, cannot cause heating and thereby damage to living tissue. Low Level Laser smoking cessation, like our program in Livonia-Detroit area, has been used for many years in Europe for pain management and sports medicine and lately it is being used instead of needles in Acupuncture therapy for smoking cessation, weight loss and stress relief. Several distinct effects are known to occur when using low level laser therapy:
- Acupuncture point stimulation which results in release of endorphins that help fight nicotine, alcohol and high carb food addiction.
- Pain relief as a result of increased endorphin release and increased serotonin.
