Laser therapy is a new and controversial treatment mode for smoking cessation. Also called low-level laser therapy and cold laser therapy, it is not unlike acupuncture; in fact the principles are the same except that, laser beams are used to stimulate acupoints on the body where an acupuncturist would apply needles. The treatment is alleged to stimulate the release of endorphins in the brain, which help to alleviate withdrawal symptoms.
Absolutely no credible, scientific studies exist that can support this notion.
In fact, the Cochrane Review, an exhaustive analysis of numerous studies on acupuncture, laser therapy and electro stimulation as smoking cessation aides concluded that there was “no clear evidence that … laser therapy is effective for smoking cessation.”
