Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is also known as cold laser light therapy since it produces no heat. It is FDA approved and has been clinically shown in many studies to be highly effective on a wide range of conditions. LLLT integrates modern science & technology with acupuncture-like treatments using light instead of needles. It's completely safe for all ages, painless, and non-invasive.
Using the Chinese meridian acupoints, low level laser therapy balances the system and elicits the body's own healing mechanisms by promoting ATP mitochondrial bio-stimulation. Our mitochondria are the energy powerhouses of each of our cells, so by stimulating our cellular processes LLLT promotes more energy to become available for our cells. The cells then utilize this energy as fuel to function and operate more efficiently. This process that facilitates healing is done through what's called photobiomodulation - which is essentially using light energy to influence the flow of energy between acupoints and effectively promote healing.
Chronic pain is an epidemic. Many people have heard of acupuncture, but are afraid of needles. Low level laser therapy offers a painless and effective alternative. LLLT is practiced widely in Europe & Asia and is quickly gaining popularity in the US.
The AURA PTL II low level laser is very successful at pain relief as many studies on this type of low level laser therapy (LLLT) have shown. In addition to providing pain relief from it's analgesic effects, it reduces inflammation, swelling, redness and heat. It stimulates the growth of new cells to improve healing time and is excellent for tissue regeneration. It's also been well researched that this specific laser light (which produces no heat) inhibits the growth of most known infection causing bacteria. This 635 nm laser light controls pain & swelling from acute & chronic pain from:
Back, neck, knee pain etc.
Arthritic joint pain
Bruises , fractures, bone breaks
Wounds (post surgical & injuries)
This laser gives what is called "a natural physiological dose of care" which means it is safe and the body takes what it needs. There are no side effects, and you cannot get too much or have any type of dependency issues arise from it. A very safe alternative and complimentary therapy to what many have dealt with trying to manage chronic pain and even short term pain issues.
Appointments are about 30 mins long. The first appointment will be longer, likely up to 45 mins. If your pain is chronic and has been around for a while, it's often best to come 3 times the first week then taper off to once or twice a week, or just when or if pain returns. Many people feel relief very quickly, often from the first visit or two.
Multiple studies have been done showing the benefits of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) as a very effective complimentary therapy for Fibromyalgia. These studies have used low level laser therapy for their analgesic and tissue regenerative effect. The laser is used on the fibro trigger points rather than the typical Chinese meridian system. Visits are usually 30 to 45 minutes with the first appointment being an hour long. Best results occur when people do a 12 visit program where you come ideally 2-3 days a week for the few weeks (or 1-2 times if that's most feasible), then you can come just once or twice a week after that. We also laser specific painful areas for relief on any given visit as well.
For people whose fibromyalgia symptoms are more severe, we can utilize a more comprehensive approach that gets into nutritional coaching and support. Many people with this condition have food sensitivities that they're unaware of which contribute to chronic pain and other symptoms like digestive issues, headaches, skin issues, etc.. There's often a vicious cycle of anxiety, frustration and depression from the toll it can take on your health and lifestyle. In addition to LLLT, we can dive deeper with IgG antibody testing for food sensitivities, take a look at your nutritional status for vitamin & mineral imbalances, neurotransmitter metabolites, antioxidant deficiencies, vitamin & hormone metabolism, yeast & clostridia overgrowth, etc. Our gut health, imbalances and food reactivity often play a major role in our mental and physical well-being. My goal is supporting your pain relief with LLLT and offering a holistic approach to improve your quality of life.
Unique to this specific laser, is the allergy & sensitivity program that utilizes specific frequencies that communicate with the autonomic nervous system. This is what misfires based on inappropriate information it has. The laser quickly balances and retrains the central nervous system to respond appropriately toward normal substances that it has developed a negative response to. How the laser does this, is by giving the body back the appropriate frequency for whatever the substance is, such as milk, egg, pollens, dust, cat, etc. This serves to break any negative association with the substance, and the body can reset itself seeing it as safe when exposed to the substance going forward. It also helps heal associated tissue, and bring overall balance to the body. Additional supportive frequencies in the program work to support the gut and emotions, which are essential for long term healing of allergies and food sensitivities.
The Just Stop! laser program works by using frequencies to quickly train your nervous system to look at the chemicals from smoking in a different way, like it did when you were a non-smoker. When you start smoking there are different receptor sites in your brain that become activated. Those receptor sites match with chemicals and are stimulated when you consume the chemicals in cigarettes. The cravings you suffer from when you’re a smoker are a direct result of these receptor sites. Non-smokers don’t experience these symptoms since those receptor sites have never been stimulated.
We use the laser on specific acupuncture points to help balance the nervous system with the laser to clean out those receptor sites. This will put these receptor sites almost back to your pre-nicotine days and cravings will subside VERY quickly.
Using the laser is a very safe and effective method without any side effects. We also use an herbal and homeopathic remedy as well, These two supplements are safe to take with any medications you may have. The herbal supplement helps to remove toxins (the nicotine and tar created from smoking cigarettes) from your tissues to pull them out of your system and flush them out of your body. Drinking extra water is recommended during this process. The supplements also help prevent nervousness, anxiety and irritability when quitting. They also help to overcome the negative effects of smoking such as cough and shortness of breath, These in addition to the the laser treatments provide a safe, effective and natural way to quit smoking for good.
This smoking cessation program takes just 3 quick visits. You can stop smoking safely and without the usual un-pleasant side effects with a successful, proven program.
