Once a smoker with a three-pack-a-day habit, Anne Penman now dedicates her time to helping others kick their smoking habits and conquer weight- and stress-related problems. Anne opened her main Glasgow office nearly 20 years ago; today, her custom style of laser therapy—known as the Anne Penman Method—can be found in more than 30 clinics worldwide. The Ireland native's therapeutic technique is founded on the Thor laser, whose cold, soft beams soak into specific energy points to release endorphins, thus reducing stress and cravings. Paired with motivating one-on-one sessions and a 24-hour support hotline, Anne's laser-therapy program has helped many a patient go smoke-free and overcome the urge to eat every cookbook in sight.
