I Quit Smoking's R.I.S.E. (Reflection Instrument Scanning Electro-pulse) technology was developed as a result of the company's commitment to creating a quick, natural and pain-free program. The IQS system takes approximately 1 hour and is administered by an IQS-trained therapist.
Prior to beginning the session, the smoker's personal data (i.e., age, sex, number of years as a smoker, quantity of cigarettes per day, type of tobacco, etc.) is entered into the "No Smoke" software, which personalizes the session. The next step is to assess the smoker's motivation to quit through a variety of physical and psychological tests.
Once this step is completed, the IQS-trained therapist stimulates the auricles' (or ear's) reflex points with a Pod, while the customer remains comfortably seated in the chair. The R.I.S.E. device is equipped with a LCD monitor indicating the path to follow during the treatment, calibrating the personalized sequence of stimuli for each individual subject, with regard to power, duration and frequency of the electric stimulus.
The electrical stimulation helps to break up the poisonous substances of tobacco accumulated in the organs and increases the release of endorphins in the system. This release of endorphins covers the nicotine molecules and the receptors relevant to tobacco addiction, thus reducing the craving for nicotine.
