FDA supervised laser smoking cessation program comes east


    TORONTO, April 6 /CNW/ - Canadian Laser and Pain Therapy (CLPT) Canada's
first low intensity laser therapy (LILT) pain and stop smoking solution
clinic, announced today that their QUICK STOP SOLUTION(TM), currently
empowering patients to break free of smoking at several locations across
Canada, has expanded east. THE QUICK STOP SOLUTION smoking cessation program
is now also available at Truro, Nova Scotia's BellaSanté Holistic Health
Centre and Spa.
    The BellaSanté Spa, located in the downtown Truro location of Prince and
Pleasant, is the first Atlantic location to offer the QUICK STOP SOLUTION,
with many more locations set to open across the country.
    Utilizing an FDA approved low intensity laser, THE QUICK STOP SOLUTION
stimulates acupuncture points on the ear, hand and knee to dramatically reduce
nicotine cravings in chronic smokers and help reset their metabolism to
minimize the unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal. Low intensity laser (LILT)
treatment is FDA approved in the United States to treat a variety of chronic
pain conditions including osteoarthritis, lower back pain (caused by
inflammation), rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis etc. The program is
conducted under strict FDA guidelines and CLPT reports patient results on a
monthly basis.
    BellaSanté Spa will also utilize the LILT Laser for pain and weight loss
treatments to be rolled out over the next 6 months.
    "Thousands of Canadians will struggle to quit smoking this spring. We can
make it significantly easier by offering a painless, effective and proven
technology to curb smoking cravings," said Dr. Paul Ziemer, President and CEO
of Canadian Laser and Pain Therapy. "We've seen consistent success rates of
85-95 percent and many patients require only two QUICK STOP SOLUTION sessions
to break free of their habit, regardless of how many years they have been
light or heavy chronic smokers."
    At a cost of $395, the QUICK STOP SOLUTION is partially covered by many
employee health plans.
