What is Anne Penman Laser Therapy?

Anne Penman Laser Therapy combines cold-laser therapy sessions with client-centered advice, guidance and continued individual support provided by a trained staff of technicians. The program involves the application of a cold, non-invasive pain-free laser beam to specific points of the body to stimulate the release of endorphins, which help relieve discomfort and stress associated with smoking cessation. Through guidance and advice, Anne Penman Laser Therapy technicians help individuals focus on the lifestyle changes necessary to help them remain smoke free. Back-up support is in the form of a helpline available 24 hours a day, seven days per week.

How can Laser Therapy help me stop smoking?

It is believed that nicotine releases endorphins, which give the smoker a sense of relaxation. When smoking stops, the sudden drop in endorphin levels can lead to withdrawal symptoms. Laser Therapy helps stimulate endorphin levels to help reduce cravings, stress, and restores balance to the body.

Can Laser Therapy alone help me stop smoking?

Anne Penman Laser Therapy combines cold-laser therapy sessions with personal guidance, advice, and back-up support to maximize your success. The laser therapy helps reduce individual's desire to smoke, while advisors help individuals deal with the emotional, physical and psychological aspects of quitting the habit.

Where is the laser applied?

The laser is applied to several pressure points on the hands, ears, nose and wrists.

Is the laser safe?

The cold-laser used by Anne Penman Laser Therapy technicians is a completely safe, non-invasive beam of light similar to a laser pointer but several times stronger. There are no side-effects resulting from use of the cold laser beam.

How long does the treatment last?

The first treatment lasts approximately one hour, including new client paperwork. Follow-up booster sessions, if needed, lasts 20-30 minutes. The treatment includes life-time 24-hour back-up support though the helpline.

I have been smoking for over 30/40/50 years, will this work for me?

It does not matter how long you have been a smoker or how many you smoke. This program can help. The most important thing you need is to want to give up.

How many sessions will I need?

In many cases, one cold laser treatment is all that is required to help smokers quit; but follow up treatments are welcomed and in fact part of the overall solution package. For many smokers it is not stopping which is difficult but becoming a happy and contented non-smoker. The follow-up sessions are offered to support your lifestyle change.

Will I put on weight if I stop?

There has been no significant weight gain associated with smoking cessation using this treatment. During the last 12 years that Anne Penman has conducted Laser Therapy in the United Kingdom, there have been no complaints of weight gain. Since the laser therapy releases endorphins, individuals don't feel cravings or withdrawal symptoms that usually cause people to substitute food for smoking.

Are there any side effects resulting from the laser therapy?

The laser is completely safe and provides no adverse side effects. Most clients feel very relaxed during and after the treatment. Individuals have experienced side-effects as the nicotine leaves their body, but that is a normal response regardless of which smoking cessation solution is used.

I would like to give the Laser Therapy to my friend/family member as a gift, is that a good idea?

Yes, but allow them to make their own appointment and arrange the best time for them to stop smoking.

Is the process guaranteed?

The Anne Penman Laser Therapy technique is highly successful because it combines a method for reducing physical cravings with the advice and guidance necessary to deal with the psychological and emotional aspects of quitting. But because each client is different, and each person's addiction is unique to them, this process can not be guaranteed. That being said, Anne Penman Laser Therapy has helped thousands of people become nicotine free.

Do you consider your solution better than other stop-smoking solutions on the market (including patches, gums, etc.)?

We feel our combination of cold-laser therapy sessions and on-call advice and support is a highly effective - and proven - method that has helped thousands of people safely break their addiction to nicotine. We have found that our success rates after one year have been up to seven times higher than other methods, but will never discourage people from finding the program that works for them.

There are more than 50 million smokers and only a handful of solutions to help break the habit. And because everyone is different, any one of those solutions may work better for some and not as well for others. We at Anne Penman Laser Therapy applaud all publicly and medically accepted smoking cessation solutions, and we encourage smokers to seek out the solution works best for them.
