Cold Laser – Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT): Low Level Laser light is compressed light of wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. These properties allow laser light to penetrate the surface of the skin with no heating effect, no damage to the skin and no known side effects. Rather, laser light directs bio-stimulative light energy to the body’s cells which the cells then convert into chemical energy (ATP) to promote natural healing and pain relief. When 3L light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both an anti-inflammatory and immune system stimulating effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effect throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
WHAT IS COLD LASER THERAPY ?
Cold Laser Therapy utilizes the power of light through a low powered or “soft” laser, to stimulate and rejuvenate tissues and cells. It is also used to relax the nervous system and dissolve the long-term effects of stress that prevent the body from healing itself. Cold Laser Therapy is also referred to as “Soft” or “Low Level” Laser Therapy because Cold lasers do not cut or burn. Instead, they donate photons which increase the production of ATP in the cell. ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the energy of the cell and governs 80-90% of all its activities. Cells use this energy to regenerate. The process is very similar to the way that sunlight works on a garden, donating photons (energy) which stimulate plants to grow.
When laser light is absorbed by the skin and underlying tissues, cells regenerate faster and more efficiently, healing enzymes are released by the body and repair mechanisms are accelerated, resulting in:
– Tissue Repair
– Improved blood circulation
– Pain Relief
– Muscle Relaxation
– Reduced Inflammation
WHAT IS COLD LASER THERAPY USED FOR?
Cold Laser Therapy is used to benefit the body through a wide variety of applications including:
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Weight Control
- Immune System Support
- Organ and Gland Balancing
- Scar Reduction
- Relaxation and Stress Relief
- Chakra Balancing
- Laser Light Acupuncture/Acupressure Point Stimulation
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Cold lasers do not cut or burn the skin and the experience is painless. Sometimes you may feel a mild tingling sensation or a mild numbing of the region being treated. This is due to the natural production of endorphins, your natural painkillers. Clients almost unanimously find the experience very relaxing relaxing.
