Discover the Anne Penman Difference
The Anne Penman Program is the most advanced treatment available for Stopping Smoking:
Most Anne Penman clients are smoke-free after their first session. Other modalities can take weeks or months before taking effect.
The Anne Penman Program is free of nicotine and harmful pharmaceuticals. Gum and patches contain nicotine and many people simply exchange one addiction for another. Pharmaceuticals can take weeks or months to be effective and can have harmful side effects.
The Anne Penman Program treats everyone as an individual. Because each person is unique, the program is tailored to everyone’s individual needs. That means that no matter how much you smoke or how often, the Anne Penman Program can help you achieve your goal of being smoke-free.
The Anne Penman Program provides multiple laser treatments. Some laser centers only provide a single treatment. An Anne Penman Quit Smoking Package includes up to three treatments. Nicotine detoxes from the body within 48 hours. Even though most clients are smoke-free after the first session, the Anne Penman Method provides a second treatment 48 to 72 hours after the initial session to help address any physical symptoms that may arise from the detox period. A third session is available to the client at any time after the second. Most clients never need the third session, but it is available should anyone desire more support.
The Anne Penman Program is more than Laser Therapy alone. The laser will help deal with the physical addiction and withdrawal. There are other reasons for smoking. The Anne Penmen Program provides person-centered guidance and support to help each individual address the habit of smoking and to find healthier expressions and new lifestyle behaviors. There is also a 24-hour helpline available to all stop smoking clients to provide advice, guidance and support at any time.
Anne Penman has been a leading light in Laser Smoking Cessation for over two decades. Her innovations have taken laser therapy to new levels and spread it to over ten countries. Many other laser therapy systems are embellished copies of Anne’s Program. Anne Penman Laser Technicians are trained and certified personally by Anne Penman and have the continuous support of the Anne Penman International Organization.
All Anne Penman Laser Therapy Centers in the U.S. operate under an Independent Investigative Review Board (IIRB). In the U.S., laser therapy for smoking cessation, weight loss and stress relief have to operate under an IIRB. Some laser centers avoid the expense and work required by this process and operate outside the legal framework. Ask to see the center's IIRB Notice. It should be displayed prominently on the wall of every laser smoking, weight loss and stress management center.
Always look for the Anne Penman logo to ensure effectiveness, safety and expertise.

When you smoke tobacco, the nicotine causes your body to release endorphins. These endorphins are what give you the feeling of calm and relaxation. That is why they are sometimes called the body’s “feel good chemical”.
After a time, endorphin levels drop and withdrawals set in, causing the cravings for another smoke. Over time, the body creates new chemical receptors and the original amount of nicotine is no longer enough to satisfy the cravings. Thus, smokers need more and more tobacco/nicotine to get the same effect.
Your body gets on a see-saw of endorphin production and withdrawal with spikes while smoking and drops between cigarettes.
Laser Therapy consists of applying a cold laser to energy points (similar to acupuncture points). Unlike acupuncture, there is absolutely no pain or discomfort. Cold lasers are completely safe.
The healing light of lasers stimulates the energy points, causing your body to increase and balance endorphin production. These endorphins bring a feeling of peace and relaxation, helping you to get off the see-saw once and for all. The cravings, bad temper, jitters and other effects of nicotine withdrawal become a thing of the past.
The only side effect you will feel is a sense of deep relaxation and well-being. In fact, many clients become so relaxed they fall asleep in the chair during their session. We look upon that as a great compliment! Carbon Monoxide will detox from your body within 24 hours, allowing you to breathe more easily. Nicotine will be gone after 48 hours. That is why the Anne Penman Program includes a booster laser treatment 48 to 72 hours after your initial treatment. The booster will rebalance your endorphin levels once more and give your body the support it needs to adjust to life without nicotine. This booster treatment helps prevent physical cravings and allows you to relax into your new lifestyle.
A third treatment is available as part of an Anne Penman Stop Smoking Package, but it is rarely necessary.
