It is estimated that between 80,000 to 100,000 children world wide start smoking daily, and about half of these children live in Asia. It is amazing and shocking to note that every eight seconds someone dies of a tobacco related diseases like lung cancer or suffers a heart attack.

Doctors and researchers have been trying to find out the best cure for this habit and they have during the course of their painstaking research and laboratory experiments come up with many drugs and psychological treatments to combat this menace but not with much success. As statistics show that the addiction to tobacco is more hard to quit than even heroin, and about 95% of the patients after quitting return to smoking again.

It is a clinically proven fact that where all other therapies/treatments, like replacement treatments ( patch, gum, inhalers) and drugs ( Zyban, Wellburtin, Chantix ) have failed and the patients undergoing these treatments have started smoking again, the nicotine laser therapy has by far emerged the most effective treatment to quit smoking.

During this low level (soft) therapy sessions laser energy, which is no more powerful than a light bulb, is applied to energy points of our body. These energy points are on our face, ears, hands and wrists. These energy points have nerve endings directly connected with the nicotine addiction.
