Struggling to quit smoking? We can help!

Have you been a smoker for too long and tried to quit numerous times?

If the answer’s yes, then you know it’s not easy. In fact, it’s not easy for most people who want to quit and there’s actually no one way to quit smoking that works for everyone. Most people will try and quit many times before finally being able to let it go for good.

One thing for sure is that you have to be ready both mentally and emotionally. You have to want to quit smoking for yourself, not because you feel pressure to quit from family or friends.

If you find yourself struggling to quit smoking perhaps it’s time to try low level laser therapy (LLLT).

Laser therapy is safe, easy, affordable, and effective. Low level laser therapy doesn’t involve needles as used in acupuncture, and is ten times more effective than patches, gum or hypnotherapy, according to a couple of recent trials in Scotland. At Calgary Laserworks, we focus on treating the three most common symptoms associated with withdrawal:

  • Block the need for nicotine
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Suppress your appetite

We are all about helping people empower themselves succeed in ending your addiction to nicotine. Why not give us a call today! For more information, contact 403-301-3750.

Choose healthy goals & feel amazing!

You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health, you have nothing.”

All it takes is one extended bout on the sidelines of life and you understand the truth in that expression.

Studies have shown that any number of things can have a detrimental effect on your health. Smoking is HUGE factor in the state of your health. It has been proven to cause lung disease, cancer, emphysema and coronary breakdown, to name just a few. Stress and worry can lead to immune system breakdown and heart-related issues.

Studies also show that being thankful and happy can reduce stress. Research shows that 50% of our inclination to be happy is genetic, something you can’t effect very much, 10% is based on surroundings (job, money and family), and 40% is “deliberate action”. Deliberate actions are things we can control through behaviour.

So how can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?

We can help you take deliberate actions! We’ll help you stop smoking, reduce stress and anxiety, and help you relax, all which can improve your immune system and much, much more.

Call 403-301-3730.  You’ll be so grateful and proud of yourself for taking the steps to improve your health and well-being!

Secondhand smoke – smoke you don’t mean to breathe in

Non-smokers are constantly aware of secondhand smoke – smoke you don’t mean to breathe in, smoke that you inhale accidentally (called passive smoking) when you are near sources of tobacco smoke.

There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. In fact, non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke absorb the same harmful chemicals as smokers. Studies show that even low levels of secondhand smoke exposure can be harmful causing numerous health problems including increasing your risk for lung disease, heart disease, heart attacks and stroke.

Secondhand smoke effects everyone and everything around you. Children, pregnant women, people with breathing issues, your family. It’s never too late to do something for yourself and those around you.

Please call the office 403-301-3730 to book your appointment or to find out about current Covid-19 health guidelines and what to expect when you schedule an appointment. Generally, we will do a COVID-19 pre-screening, a temperature check will be taken upon arrival, and masks and hand sanitizer will be supplied. Please note that currently we are not accepting walk-ins.
