Nail Biting Success Stories

*Results may vary.

I decided to try laser therapy for my nail biting because I had heard about Laser Centers for Health from my brother-in-law, who had a successful laser treatment for a 35-year smoking habit. He only needed two treatments, and hasn’t touched a cigarette in the five or six years since.

Although my nails weren’t unsightly, I didn’t like that I couldn’t seem to keep them long for any length of time, and that I kept biting them. I was self-conscious of the way they looked, and hid my hands whenever I thought someone might be looking at my nails. 

I have two laser treatments, about three weeks apart. Sheila Baxter and the staff at Laser Centers for Health were very professional, respectful, and courteous. During my visit to the centre, Sheila’s calm and relaxed presence was soothing, and I was immediately at ease when receiving the treatments and having discussions with her.

Since my last treatment, I have not bitten my nails once. It’s interesting that I still have my moments when I unconsciously hide my hands, but then I realize, "Wait a minute, I have fingernails now!" Obviously, the thoughts of hiding my hands have been ingrained in my head after many years of nail biting, but now I feel so much freer knowing that I don’t have to clutter my head with that anymore. I hope to continue along this path for a long time to come. 

My experience with the staff at Laser Centers for Health and with laser therapy for nail biting was a very positive one, and I would highly recommend the treatment for anyone who is considering having it done. 

Just a note to say thank you for the good work that you do to help people quit their addictions and make positive lifestyle changes. I’ve just celebrated my second year free of nail biting. Thanks to your excellent laser therapy treatment. Keep up the great work, all of you. I will continue to sing the praises of Laser Centers for Health to anyone who will listen! Thanks again.

Hello Sheila and Staff,

This month marks the third year since I received laser therapy for nail biting and I am happy to report that things are still going well and I haven't bitten my nails! Thanks Laser Centers for Health for your excellent services, of which many could benefit from!! Keep up the great work!! (P.S. I think it's safe to say I am definitely cured!)*


I decided 25+ years were enough to bite my nails. Since seeing my 3 ½ years old start I knew that I had to do something. I had tried everything under the sun. I saw an ad for “Laser Centers for Health”, and I thought that this is the best bet. Since my first visit I have not had my finger in my mouth, my nails are long and I feel more confident using my hands and best of all my children don’t see me bite my nails. Thank you Laser Centers for Health!*

WOW. I can now open a pocketknife and a canned drink, and remove my watch, without having to reach for a coin. I had bitten my nails for as long as I could remember, and had all but resigned myself to being a biter for the remainder of my days. Then I discovered the LCH Technique. I would like to thank Sheila and her staff for their professionalism and support. I would have no problem recommending their services to anybody wishing to put nail biting behind them. Thanks again.*
