February is Heart Month

Smoking is a major risk factor for heart disease. Smoking harms nearly every organ in the body including the heart and blood vessels. The nicotine in smoke raises your blood pressure, speeds up your heart rate, harms the inside of your blood vessels and reduces the amount of oxygen your heart gets.

Every cigarette you smoke makes you more likely to get heart disease. Any amount of smoking, even light smoking or occasional smoking does damage. Roughly 1 out of 5 deaths from heart disease is directly related to smoking.

How does quitting smoking help?

Your odds of getting heart disease or high blood pressure will drop. After 1 to 2 years of not smoking, you’ll be much less likely to get heart disease. You’ll feel so much better physically and psychologically and, you’ll be so proud of yourself for breaking the habit.

Isn’t it time YOU considered quitting?

There are alternatives to the traditional ways of breaking the habit. Laser therapy has proven to be a highly effective, non-invasive and safe method.

We will support and work with you when you need it the most. Call Calgary Laserworks today for options and information about how laser treatments can help you quit smoking.

Happy Holidays!

One of the real joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to say thank you and to wish you a Merry Christmas and the very best for the New Year.

Christmas-Card

Give Yourself the Gift of Laser Therapy!

The Christmas season can be such a beautiful time, but is often crazy hectic and filled with much pressure and unwelcome stress.

Most of us have many responsibilities during the holiday season, which if we don’t manage well, leave our emergency stress response turned “on” most of the time. The more your body’s stress system is activated, the harder it is to shut off.

Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body and can lead to serious health problems. It can raise our blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, and suppress our immune systems. Not to mention it can speed up the aging process, and really, who needs that?!

Managing stress in our lives is all about taking charge and being in control of our thoughts, our emotions, our schedule, our environment, and the way we handle our issues. The mind is so powerful no matter how we choose to use it and we always have a choice about the way we respond.

Give yourself the gift of Laser Therapy and sail through the Christmas chaos this year.

Calgary Laserworks is all about helping people empower themselves to live a healthier, happier life…including reducing stress!

  • Laser therapy targets key energy points on the body helping patients heal more quickly and with longer lasting results. It is a safe and non-drug alternative for pain control, including the oftentimes debilitating pain that comes with migraine.
  • As a weight loss treatment, laser therapy activates cells effectively jump-starting the body’s metabolism and suppressing the appetite and controlling food cravings.
  • Reflexology can assist in reducing stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.

In Remembrance…

On Tuesday November 11, 2014 we pay tribute and remember those members of the armed forces – some who selflessly sacrificed their own precious lives in the line of duty — who have served their nation in war, in armed conflict, and in the effort of sustaining world peace.

Past, present and future we salute those who have served and those who continue to serve at home and overseas. Without them there would be no freedom.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, during this very sad and difficult time.

“Wishing you strength for today and hope for tomorrow.”

Fall Back this Weekend!

As the saying goes, spring forward, fall back…
daylight-savings

Don’t forget to turn back your clocks this weekend and enjoy that extra hour of sleep Saturday night!

“Daylight Savings Time” is a way of making better use of the daylight in the evenings by setting the clocks forward one hour during the longer days of summer, and back again in the fall.

Daylight savings time will end with a “fall back” to standard time on Sunday November 2, at 2 a.m.

Does Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Work?

Low level lasers have been proven to be a remarkably safe, effective, painless, and medication-free therapy option for many decades now.

With low level laser, a visible coherent light is applied to specific acupuncture points of the body (ears, hands, feet, etc.). Acupuncture points are access points to the body’s energy path ways called “meridians”. This light energy passes through the layers of the skin at these points and is received within the cell membrane by specific receptors. This causes an increase in the energy in the cell which jump-starts changes that positively stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to restore energy and re-balance the body.

Low level lasers are also known as “cold” lasers, meaning that they do not have a thermal effect and are used to stimulate tissue rather than destroy it. The “cold” laser does not cause any tissue damage because healthy cells exhibit weak or no effects from the low-power laser while unhealthy cells exhibit strong effects. Low level lasers have been in use since the 1960’s to help relieve a variety of conditions and no adverse side effects or negative impacts have been recorded.

Low Level Laser therapy promotes healing. It’s as simple as that!

Call Calgary Laserworks at 403-301-3730 to discover how low level laser therapy can be put to work to improve your health!
