About the LCH Technique

about lch technique 2

It has taken years of research, training and clinical experience to develop our exclusive laser therapy treatment system known as The LCH Technique®.

The LCH Technique utilizes the same acupressure points and meridians (also known as energy lines) identified in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The laser therapy component of the treatment is sometimes also referred to as laser acupuncture, or acupuncture without needles.

During treatment, a low-powered laser is applied to specific acupressure points on the body. Areas may include the ears, face, neck, shoulders, hands, legs, and/or, feet, depending on your treatment. You will feel a mild tingling or pulsating sensation.

This laser stimulates a powerful surge of natural 'feel good' chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins help you to relax, to feel good, and to experience a natural high. This feeling mirrors the rush you get when you indulge in an addiction, craving, or habit. The LCH Technique also helps to calm your nervous system and to establish balance and control in your life. Because serotonin and dopamine levels are elevated, you feel an increased sense of wellbeing.

You maintain this natural high for up to six weeks. During that time, all of our clients learn how to overcome negative thoughts and triggers, and to make healthy lifestyle choices. Addiction therapy clients also detoxify addictive substances from their bodies. Cravings and withdrawal are eliminated because of this mirrored high, which helps to end a physical addiction.

Stimulating this massive release of endorphins — combined with lifestyle counselling, detoxification, printed and audio materials, and ongoing support — has proven to be highly effective in overcoming addictions to smoking, nicotine products, street drugs, prescription medication, alcohol, gambling, and more. The LCH Technique also produces excellent results for those wishing to help accelerate metabolism for weight loss, or to overcome chronic pain, insomnia, depression, stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, or panic attacks.

Treatments take less than 90-minutes, and are completely non-invasive. There are no side effects; patients report feelings of deep relaxation and contentment. You can return home or to work immediately after treatment. 

Treatments are conducted by highly trained staff, in professional outpatient clinics in Victoria and Nanaimo, BC. All treatment and patient information is strictly confidential. We offer long-term support, whenever you need it, long after your treatment is over.

Please note: Detoxification is integrated into many of our treatments, and is optional for others. The optional supplements that compliment treatment help you to feel more calm and relaxed, to improve your quality of sleep, and to enable an overall feeling of wellbeing. They can be effective in protecting the body from stress, reducing high blood pressure, alleviating insomnia, aiding nerve and muscle function, and regulating the heartbeat. We recommend that you consult your doctor or healthcare practitioner to ensure these supplements will compliment your existing health program.

Our programs are tailored to each individual and results vary accordingly.
