All the Benefits of Acupuncture- Without the Needles
Laser terapy is a fast and painless therapy, allowing traditional acupuncture needles to not be required.
The use of laser has been found to support the treatment of myofascial pain, and the relief of chronic tension in many areas of the body.
Laser Therapy has become a popular treatment option and is often recommended as part of an overall health and/or pain management program. It works by activating endorphins to provide a natural pain relief while stimulating blood flow to tissues to speed up the healing process.
It is a wonderful way to support facilitated healing, especially with needle-phobic people, young children and babies.
How does laser therapy work?
Using handheld (non-heat: also known as a cold laser) lasers that are pressed lightly against the skin, laser light passes through each layer where it reaches the target structures and is absorbed. The laser activates the targeted cells, stimulating them to become healthy again. On absorbing the laser’s light, the cell starts the healing process, resulting in a normalised cell that is free of damage while leaving the surrounding capillaries and cells untouched with no residual damage.
Some of the more common ailments Laser Therapy can help manage include:
- general pain
- tendon and ligament injuries
- arthritis/joint pain, including degenerative joint conditions
- soft tissue injuries and muscle strains
- neurological pain
- chronic non-healing wounds
- musculoskeletal disorders
- pre and post surgery, including post-operative pain
