Years of research and development have allowed Yuva to create an advanced therapy
that will help bring about a new era of healthy living. At Yuva we believe the answer
to combating tobacco addiction is our dynamic three step program!
Laser Acupuncture has been used for more than two decades overseas to help people
quit smoking. Yuva has been established for seven years in Calgary, and we have
helped countless Calgarians quit smoking for life. Yuva uses a three step program
which is designed to support you through the quitting process and to help you remain
a non smoker forever. The three step program starts with a one on one guided consultation
to help our therapist learn about your addiction, and to find a way to break it.
We use computerized, low powered lasers which target 74 specific Acupuncture points.
The laser is completely painless and non invasive. These points have been selected
These strategies and tools will help you break habits, associations and thoughts
of smoking, in the long and short term. In addition, we are available to
offer telephone advice and support after the treatment.
Addiction to smoking can be all encompassing and can dictate the way that you live
your life and arrange your social activities. As a smoker you are essentially a
slave to the addiction. You probably find that you avoid certain situations based
on whether or not you will be able to smoke. You may plan many activities around
smoking. No doubt, you are fully aware that this addiction is both unhealthy and
One of the toxic aspects of smoking is second-hand smoke. Only 15% of the smoke
from a cigarette is inhaled by the smoker. The other 85% goes directly into the
air and is known as second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke is a combination of Mainstream
smoke, which is the smoke, inhaled and then breathed out, and Side stream smoke,
which is the smoke coming from the cigarette between puffs. Side stream smoke
has more tar, nicotine, carbon monoxide, and other chemicals that cause cancer than
the smoke inhaled through the cigarette itself. So, those around you become passive
Smokers are usually well aware of these dangers, but are unable to stop due to their
physical addiction to nicotine. Yuva can help you overcome this addiction once and
Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas which makes it hard to detect. It
is about 3% lighter than air and is poisonous to many forms of life. When you smoke,
carbon monoxide is inhaled along with tar, nicotine, and many other deadly toxins.
After entering the mouth it quickly enters the blood stream which reduces the body's
ability to absorb oxygen. This causes smokers to run out of breath quickly and feel
fatigued. Carbon Monoxide travels to the heart and lungs where it seeps into the
tissue cells. This makes smoking a major factor in lung cancer and heart disease.
Prolonged exposure to this harmful gas can result in death.
When a smoker inhales a cigarette nicotine reaches the brain within seven seconds.
This causes an elevation of endorphins, which are the body's natural pain reduction
and pleasure chemicals produced in the brain. Nicotine causes a person to feel awake
and alert. Over time smoking depletes the body's ability to naturally release endorphins,
therefore more and more nicotine is needed to trigger this response. This leaves
the smoker feeling tired, depressed and craving cigarettes.
More than 4,000 chemicals have been identified in cigarette smoke; of these at least
43 are known to cause cancer. More than 25 other disease are also associated with
smoking, including diseases of the pancreas, kidney, uterus and cervix. Smoking
also increases the chances of developing emphysema and increases the risk of stroke
Tobacco is as addictive as heroin as a mood and behavior altering agent.
A 1-2 pack per day smoker inhales 200-400 times daily for years. This is a constant
intake of a fast acting drug, which effects concentration and performance, eventually
producing complete and total dependence.
Yuva uses a low powered (cold) laser to stimulate 74 Acupuncture points. We use
the most advanced, computerized lasers currently available.
Why we use Lasers instead of Needles
We use lasers, instead of needles, for the stimulation of Acupuncture points for
The laser is placed on the appropriate points. The point is stimulated by the laser
light for up to thirty seconds. The laser beam passes through the skin and reaches
approximately half a centimeter below the surface. This provides suitable stimulation
to the Acupuncture point and the corresponding Acupuncture channel. There is generally
no sensation at all. The laser is used on points of the ear, face, hands, wrists,
knees and feet.
The points which are stimulated during the treatment encourage an increased endorphin
response which helps eliminate cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The session also
includes Acupuncture points which help speed up the detoxification and elimination
process to help rid the body of the harmful chemicals associated with smoking. Another
component of the session will include stimulation of appetite points which encourage
abnormal appetite function in times of quitting to prevent our clients from gaining
weight during this time.
Lasers come in varying strengths and wavelengths. These differences determine what
the laser can achieve. For example, a ‘hot’ laser can be used for hair removal and
skin rejuvenation. ‘Hot’ lasers are literally hot and can therefore burn the skin.
Conversely, a ‘cold’ laser is cold and unable to burn the skin.
There are many reasons why quitting smoking will be one of the best things you have
ever done. The benefits of this decision will last a lifetime.
