For example, one full year after their LCH Technique  treatment to quit smoking, 94% to 98% of our clients are still non-smokers, without the use of nicotine replacement products or medication.

There are no side effects; clients feel calm and relaxed, with an overall sense of wellbeing. Since 1999, Laser Centers for Health has helped more than 20,000 people quit addictions, improve their health, and enjoy a happier, healthier life.

We treat all types of addiction, such as to cigarettes and nicotine, alcohol, drugs (street & prescription), gambling, gaming and food products. Health issues related to lifestyle and the nervous system, such as stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia, can also be overcome, or dramatically reduced and managed, through LCH Technique programs. 

History of Laser Centers for Health
In 1998, Registered Nurse Sheila Baxter attended a medical conference that featured addiction treatment using newly developed laser therapy technology. Baxter enlisted the help of the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC) now known as the BCCNM to determine the legitimacy, effectiveness, and future of this technology.

With RNABC support, Baxter embarked upon intensive training with the developer of the laser therapy technology. After training as a Laser Therapist, she launched negotiations to open a laser therapy clinic on Vancouver Island.

In March 1999, Total Health Lifestyle Centres opened its doors on Central Vancouver Island, in Nanaimo, B.C. Canada, delivering treatments for smoking cessation and weight loss. For the next three years, Baxter returned to Ontario for further training in laser therapy to provide treatments for drug and alcohol addiction, gambling, insomnia, stress, nail-biting and chronic pain.

The Nanaimo clinic continues to serve the residents of the Central and Northern areas of Vancouver Island; both clinics serve residents from Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, northern British Columbia and Alberta.

Laser Centers for Health also provides mobile services to remote B.C. destinations for large groups and corporate clients who support employees in optimizing their health.

Baxter has drawn on decades of experience as a Registered Nurse, combined with 15 years as a Laser Therapist, to completely revolutionize Laser Centers for Health's treatment packages into the powerful LCH Technique. Each component of this package has been augmented to maximize her clients' success. It is this level of care and attention that has helped Laser Centers for Health treat all types of chemical and behavioural addictions, such as addiction to nicotine, all forms of drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, sugar, caffeine, energy drinks, internet, and gaming. Laser Centers for Health also provides effective relief for those suffering from chronic pain, stress, insomnia, obesity, anxiety, panic attacks and depression.

Since February 2004, Baxter trained as a Clinical Nurse Instructor in Laser Therapy. Baxter offers training for others who want to expand their existing business or open their own laser therapy clinic. test
