Laser Auriculartherapy or Ear acupuncture using laser is effective to reduce withdrawal symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, alcohol, and food addiction. Acupuncture and laser therapy help to release endorphins and enkephalins which act as analgesiacs or pain- relievers.
Laser acupuncture is done on the ear predominantly as it is the best connection to the central nervous system. When you receive treatment, it supports your body while quitting smoking. The laser treatment will help your body release natural occurring feel-good chemicals like dopamine & serotonin, that are soothing and help you feel more at ease and calm.
