Cold Laser Therapy
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy or cold laser, is a painless, non-invasive, drug-free modality that is used for a variety of conditions, including acute and chronic pain.
During a laser treatment light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by a particular receptor within the cells of your body (mitochondria). This stimulation promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. Increased blood flow reduces inflammation that can cause pain.
Low Level Laser Therapy is FDA-cleared to successfully treat many conditions such as acute and chronic pain reduction, repetitive use disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, soft tissue strains and sprains, inflammation reduction, enhanced tissue wound healing, and cell regeneration.
What to Expect in Your Session
"Laser therapy is not an event, it is a progression." -Racheal
We start by discussing your areas of concern, overall health, and pain to determine the level and time with each laser treatment. You receive treatment on a massage table or chair. You most likely will not feel anything, sometimes a soft buzzing, cooling sensation, or an energetic wave can be felt. Since the laser is repairing at a cellular level, it takes time for body to create anew - and takes multiple sessions to reach the required results.
Cold laser therapy addresses:
• Acute and chronic pain
• Back pain
• Carpal tunnel
• Sprains and strains
• Soft tissue injuries
• Tennis elbow
• Skin conditions i.e. psoriasis, eczema
Many patients find that this solution is a much more effective alternative to traditional pain medications.
Cost & Session Packages:
Depending on your overall health and how chronic your pain is, the laser works best in multiple successive treatments. Usually 6-15 treatments are needed, 2-5 minutes is spent on each area of concern. Please contact Racheal to purchase a custom package or discuss adding laser treatment to your massage sessions.
