DESCRIPTION OF LASER LIGHT THERAPY:

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) uses light to trigger photoreceptors in the cell causing protein and collagen synthesis, resulting in rapid regeneration and healing of damaged tissue. Increased cellular metabolism and improved circulation enable the body to remove toxins and replenish nutrients more efficiently. There are over 2500 research publications confirming the clinical effect of LLLT. We offer specialized treatments using the Vectra Genysis Laser. Five laser diodes treat deeper symptoms and four light emitting diodes treat surface symptoms. This non-invasive treatment is a safe and effective way to temporarily relieve many common problems including aches, pains, muscle spasms and tightness; while improving circulation and healing. A typical treatment session takes 5-10 minutes for a localized area; with 3 sessions per week on average. However, clients with chronic or severe symptoms would benefit from treatments on a daily basis for 1-2 weeks.

BENEFITS OF LASER LIGHT THERAPY:

  • Increased local blood circulation
