About Nicotine Addiction...

Smoking addiction has been said to parallel that of cocaine and heroin. The psychological dependency is even harder to overcome due to the availability of tobacco and its lethal, addictive drug, nicotine. Over the past two decades, stop smoking programs have come and gone, with little impact on the addiction. Most of these programs, including nicorette gum, the "patch" and medications show a success rate of only 30-35%. Moreover, the patch and gum are nicotine based - common sense dictates that you should not use the addictive substance to overcome the addiction!


Dave’s Approach To Helping You Quit Smoking Using Laser Therapy...

Most important is your desire to quit. Subsequently, Dave subscribes to a 2 step approach in helping people overcome nicotine addiction using laser therapy:

STEP ONE
Use laser therapy in combination with auricular (ear) therapy points in order to break the physiological addiction to nicotine.

STEP TWO
Second, address the psychological dependance to develop an addiction-free lifestyle. Easy to follow ground rules will help you break the habit of smoking and establish new behaviour patterns that support a permanent smoke free life.






Benefits Of Laser Therapy To Stop Smoking...

There are numerous benefits of using laser therapy to quit smoking with Dave Hanemaayer:


  • REDUCED Withdrawal Symptoms - laser treatments reduce nicotine cravings, irritability, anxiety, insomnia, mild depression, agitation and other common symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal.
  • Painless – though the treatments are based on theories of acupuncture, no needles are used to pierce the skin or tissues. Only gentle, low-intensity laser is applied over tissues.
  • Safe - Any serious contraindications to treatment, risks or side effects are addressed beforehand with each patient to facilitate informed consent. Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options (like acupuncture needles), laser therapy is non-toxic and non-invasive.
  • Limited Risk Of Weight Gain - Your laser treatment includes using appetite suppression points to discourage your desire for food as a substitute for cigarettes.
  • Reduces stress - laser therapy usually improves mood, reduces feelings of anxiety, depression and other negative emotional factors that affect a person’s stress levels. Most leave their treatment with a general sense of well being.
  • No Pharmaceuticals - since no pharmaceuticals are used, nasty side effects like nightmares, insomnia, agitation, and anxiety are limited. These side effects are often associated with stop smoking methods like "Zyban" and "The Patch", among others.
  • Motivation – because your nicotine cravings are diminished, patients often discover they have more motivation to make other positive lifestyle changes (healthier diet, more exercise, etc.).

  • Instant Results After Just One Treatment - Most patients experience a large degree of relief from their withdrawal symptoms after just one treatment.
  • EFFECTIVENESS RATE - Dave utilizes the LAZER DAVE ADVANTAGE approach, which has an 70-80% success rate.

What To Expect On Your First Laser Treatment To Stop Smoking...



When you come for your first laser to stop smoking treatment with Dave Hanemaayer at his clinic (101 Lydia Street, Kitchener), you will relax by lying down on a comfortable massage table while listening to relaxing music. Dave will explain the procedure to you and ask you to wear protective eyewear. Up 10-12 individual laser diodes will be simultaneously applied to various "acutherapy" points on the wrist, arm, feet and lower leg. Ear and face points are stimulated individually. You may feel a slight warm or tingling sensation through your body. As the points are stimulated with the laser light, your body should begin to release endorphins and other powerful neuro-chemicals which promote a pleasant sense of relaxation.

What to Expect After Your First Laser Therapy Treatment To Quit Smoking...

After your first Kitchener-Waterloo laser therapy treatment for quitting or stopping the habit of smoking you will likely feel relaxed, calm, and best of all your desire for nicotine will likely have diminished. In addition to treating you with laser, Dave will also review behavioral modification practices to increase your chances of quitting smoking for good.

While a small percentage of patients do require a second or more treatments, most are satisfied with one treatment. The Laser Stop Smoking Program includes a second "booster" treatment (Day Time Program available for 2 weeks from initial treatment, VIP Program 4 weeks).




How Effective Is Laser Therapy For Smoking Cessation ?



Despite what some skeptics say, there are 3 scientific studies/reports that support the efficacy of laser therapy for smoking cessation. However, individual people do respond differently to laser therapy treatment so results cannot be guaranteed.

Dave uses the LAZER DAVE ADVANATAGE approach which has an 80% success rate. This is significantly higher than other traditional methods like the patch, gum and medications which have an effectiveness rate of approximately 30-35%.




Is Laser Therapy Safe ?

Any potential contraindications to treatment, risks or side effects are addressed during the email consultation process to facilitate informed consent. Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options (such as needle acupuncture), laser therapy is non-toxic, drug-free and non-invasive.




"I can't believe how EASY
it was to QUIT SMOKING
using LASER THERAPY !"


K.S. from Kitchener




Are There Any Side Effects ?

Serious side effects are very uncommon. Usually, patients report that they continue to feel relaxed and slept more than normal following treatment. Most are surprised at the ease in which they are often able to quit smoking with laser therapy.




How Does Laser Therapy Help Me Stop Smoking ?

Based on auricular therapy, low intensity laser is applied to specific ear points in order to stimulate the pleasure centres of the brain and release neurotransmitters such as dopimine, serotonin, and endorphins - which help to break the addiction cycle to nicotine.

The end goal is to drastically reduce nicotine cravings, giving you an edge over all other options to quit smoking for good.




Is Laser Therapy Painful ?

No. Most patients describe the treatment as extremely relaxing and pleasant. Some people feel no sensations, while others feel light pressure, tingling or a "heaviness" in their limbs.




Will I Gain Weight ?

Your treatment includes the stimulation of appetite suppression points to discourage your desire for food as a substitute for cigarettes.




How Many Laser Treatments Will I Need ?



People utilizing Dave's Kitchener-Waterloo Stop Smoking Laser Therapy Program receive the initial treatment plus an optional "booster" treatment. Thereafter, a small number of people require additional treatments in order to stay quit.




How Much Do Treatments Cost ?

The entire Kitchener-Waterloo Stop Smoking Laser Program costs $250 (including HST). This entitles patients to an initial treatment plus an optional "booster" treatment.




Can You Charge Laser To Stop Smoking As Massage Therapy ?

Dave DOES NOT bill laser to stop smoking treatments as massage therapy for the purposes of insurance coverage. These treatments are offered separate and individual from Dave's massage therapy practice. However, some workplace insurance plans do provide quitting smoking coverage - you may be able to claim your treatment as such. Even if you have to pay out-of-pocket, the cost savings from quitting will add up quickly, not to mention improve your health and increase the chances considerably of living longer.






YOUR INVESTMENT INCLUDES...



  • Laser Dave's Guide To Quitting Smoking
  • Custom designed suggestions and strategies
  • Initial laser treatment
  • One follow-up booster treatment if needed




When Is The Best Time To Book ?

When you want to quit. There is never a "perfect" time to quit as it is easy to come up with excuses to put off your desire to quit. Nicotine addiction is serious and for most, laser is the best way to quit and STAY QUIT. However with this being said, Dave will evaluate and assess your individual situation based on a detailed email consultation after signing up for the Kitchener-Waterloo Laser Stop Smoking Therapy Program.
