“On July 14, 2014, I was a heavy smoker, one to two packs a day and drinking 8 to 10 large coffees a day. I needed to quit as my health and finances were deteriorating. Tina at Just Quit Laser gave me 3 laser treatments and I haven’t smoked since. Over 3 years smoke free. Amazing.

Thank you Tina! Brian Cormier, Sackville, N.S”


JustQuit provides you with a quick method to quit smoking. Low-level laser therapy stimulates the body with endorphins to help eliminate the cravings caused by nicotine withdrawal. The treatment is quick, easy and not only painless, but calming and relaxing. And best of all, it really works!!

HOW DOES IT WORK?:

Smoking causes your body to increase it’s level of “endorphins”– the body’s natural calming chemicals. When you stop smoking, the endorphins drop suddenly, causing the “craving” you experience. Laser therapy promotes the release of endorphins for the first three to five days of nicotine withdrawal, reducing your cravings during the most stressful period associated with quitting smoking.

WE FOCUS ON THE FOLLOWING:

  1. The desire to quit
  2. The physical
  3. The habit
  4. Getting rid of nicotine.

IS IT SAFE?:

The entire procedure is external, totally non-invasive and painless. During the procedure, energy points on your hands, face, arms and ears are treated. Some people feel a calming sensation and a sense of well-being. After your treatment, the physical desire for a cigarette is gone.
