What is AcculaserUSA?          

AcculaserUSA is a therapeutic program that combines the ancient art of acupuncture with the modern technology of laser therapy to help with weight management and smoking cessation.

What exactly does the laser do?

The laser probe is programmed to detect certain acupressure points.  Using a low power (cold) laser and bioelectricity, these points are stimulated to release endorphins and serotonin (the “feel good” chemicals in the brain).  When these chemicals are released, they provide the feeling of wellness to replace the “wellness” often associated with nicotine or certain foods.  Each of the two programs also targets specific points for the following:

  • Smoking Cessation:     In addition to the release of endorphins, the points used in the smoking cessation program help to control cravings for nicotine, help reduce stress and help balance normal organ function
  • Weight Management:  In addition to the release of endorphins and serotonin, the weight management program focuses on helping to reduce food cravings, helping to control appetite and help stimulate normal metabolism.

How long does the procedure take?

The initial consultation and first session can take between 1-1½ hours.  A follow up or booster session will usually last about 30-40 minutes.

Do I need to do anything prior to my first visit?

There is no preparation necessary prior to your visit.  You should wear loose fitting clothing; you will need to remove your shoes and socks, roll your sleeves up past your elbows and roll your pant legs up to the knee.

What can I expect when I come for my first visit?

When you arrive, you will fill out an intake form and meet with a Certified Laser Technician who will discuss the procedure with you.  The procedure is painless and non-invasive.  The laser probe is used on the skin surface – no needles are used in this program.

The laser will be used on points in the ears, on the arms, legs, and feet and in some cases on the face.  For all points on the head (ears and face) you will feel nothing; the laser is cool and the electrical stimulation is kept to a minimum.  When the probe is used on the arms and legs, the electrical stimulation will be increased to a comfortable level.  Many people describe the feeling as being similar to “pins and needles” when your foot falls asleep or a small pin prick.  You will always be in control of the amount of electrical stimulation that you will experience.

During the procedure, your Certified Laser Technician, who is also trained in Natural Health and Nutrition, will review the details of the program with you.  You will be provided with techniques to help you achieve your goals. In each of the programs, dietary supplements are suggested and will be made available to you, as well as informative hand outs for you to take home.  An audio cassette or CD will also be provided for continued support when you leave.

What happens after I leave?

You can expect the endorphins to build up over the first 24 hours and stay elevated for approximately 2-4 weeks before subsiding.  You will receive tools to help ensure you achieve the results you seek.  One of our consultants will contact you within a few days to check on your progress and set up a follow up appointment if necessary.

Can this program interfere with anything I am doing now for my health?

This program has been used successfully for over twenty years with NO reported negative effects.  It is completely safe and non-toxic.  If you are pregnant or nursing, please consult your health professional before seeking ANY therapy.  People taking photosensitive medications, undergoing cancer treatments or those who have a pacemaker should notify the laser technician prior to your visit.  Certain aspects of the program may be contraindicated with those conditions.
