Are the holidays already leaving you feeling stressed-out, tense or anxious?

Perhaps a little pre-Christmas treatment will help to ease the tension. Reflexology therapy is based on the principle that specific points and areas on the feet, hands, and ears correspond to specific organs and body systems. It is performed by applying thumb pressure to these points for healing.

Since your body is symmetrical, your left and right feet have reflex points corresponding to each side. For example, the left foot corresponds to the left side of the body and all organs and systems found there. The right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and all organs and systems found there.

By applying pressure to those specific areas, the reflexology practitioner is working to release congestion or stress in the nervous system and balance the body’s energy to promote benefits such as relaxation, improved circulation and normalized function in the related area of the body.

Consider a Reflexology appointment as a relaxing time-out or a preventative measure to support your overall wellness. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange your appointment today.

Achieve Your Optimal Level of Health

Calgary Laserworks is all about helping people empower themselves to live a healthier, happier life including reducing stress…without drugs!

Most of us have many responsibilities and worries, 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.

Responsibilities, worries, disappointments are inevitable, but misery is optional!

Worry and anxiety are the emotions that steal our present moments and quality of life. The mind is so powerful no matter how we choose to use it and we always have a choice about the way we respond.

Migraines are NOT NORMAL headaches

Most of us have experienced a headache or two, but for those suffering from migraine headaches, life can be unbearable for the length of time the attack lasts. In fact for many, these intense migraine headaches can be debilitating to the point of not being able to participate in every day activities because of the severity of the pain.

Migraines are not normal headaches. Migraine is considered a neurological disease. They are caused when blood vessels in the brain expand and press against nerves.

There are many contributing factors and triggers of migraine from certain foods, alcohol (especially wine) medications, and missing sleep, to bright lights, intense physical exertion, weather or barometric pressure changes, and emotional factors such as stress, anxiety and depression, to name a few.

Calgary Laserworks Can Help with Low Level Laser Therapy (Cold Laser)

LLLT is more and more in demand for treating migraine headaches. Low level laser, instead of needles, targets key energy points on the body helping patients heal more quickly and with longer lasting results, allowing them to get back to their daily lives.

Low level laser therapy is a safe and non-drug alternative for pain control! Call 403-301-3730 for relief today.

Give thanks this weekend

Oh my gosh – time sure is flying by at a break neck pace. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already since our homes were filled with family and friends for a festive meal and to give thanks for the blessings in our lives. This weekend we do it all over again.

Calgary Laserworks wishes everyone a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

“Love wholeheartedly, be surprised, give thanks and praise…then you will discover the fullness of your life.”

Lose weight with low level laser therapy

The things that we do have precise and predictable effects on our bodies, including losing weight. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also called cold laser therapy, can enhance the effectiveness of weight loss for those who are willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes such as developing healthy eating and exercise habits.

LLLT uses infrared or near-infrared light energy to penetrate the skin tissue and stimulate (accelerate) the skin cells. It operates on the principle similar to the 5,000 year old ancient Asian healing art of Acupuncture. Certain pressure points are targeted by the laser lights, emitted by a hand-held device, to trigger shifts in the patient’s inner energy. As a weight loss treatment, the activated cells effectively jump-start your body’s metabolism and suppress the appetite and control food cravings.

Low level laser therapy is considered a non-invasive, safe, easy and painless alternative weight loss method. As an added bonus, while you may feel a slight tingling during treatment, in most cases after treatment you’ll notice a calm and relaxed sensation. This is because LLLT reduces the level of anxiety and eases stress. Who in the world wouldn’t want to feel like that?! Ahhh…

Calgary Laserworks will help to empower you to live a healthier, happier life. If you have questions, or would like more information, call 403-301-3730 today.

Suffering from stress & anxiety?

Stress and anxiety can interrupt the smooth flow of energy throughout the body. Low level laser therapy has actually been shown to help energy flow smoothly again, helping to reduce stress and lower anxiety.

The calming nature of laser therapy is known to decrease heart rate, lower blood pressure
and relax muscles. The laser stimulates the release of endorphins, those natural “feel-good” chemicals, creating a sense of overall well-being.

Low level laser treatments involve a cold, soft laser beam applied to specific energy points on the body (ears, hands, arms, wrist and feet). By targeting the energy points associated with stress and anxiety you will feel the tension leave your body.

While everyday stress is part of all our lives, and how we manage it contributes to our quality
of life, sometimes life’s circumstances can make stress and anxiety difficult to deal with on our own. Before your stress becomes chronic (long term) perhaps low level laser therapy is worth
a try. Once the dark & heavy feelings of stress are relieved you will feel more confident in your ability to cope with the challenges of life, and ultimately, a happier, healthier existence will be restored.

Call Calgary Laserworks at 403-301-3730 today so that we can help you jump-start the rest of your life!

Summer – a time for healing, rejuvenation & relaxation

The warm, lazy days of summer can be a time for healing, rejuvenation and relaxation. To really get the most of your summer downtime preventative medicine can be the perfect way to enhance your body’s balance and positive state of mind.

Reflexology is a great form of preventative medicine. Its relaxing and stress releasing effect allows the body to restore energy while being filled/flooded with a general feeling of calm and well-being.

The origins of reflexology can be traced back may thousands of years. Many civilizations and cultures have used this ancient form of healing throughout history. The main principle of reflexology that has evolved with time and research is that the feet mirror the body.

Reflexology is a non-invasive form of healing involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.

Reflexology improves the circulation and nerve supply, and most of all releases physical and emotional stress at the same time. Since many of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress, reflexology is a valuable tool for the support of the well-being of anyone. In fact, you don’t have to be sick in order to benefit from a reflexology treatment.

Reflexology has so many amazing benefits including:

  • Stress Reduction
  • Improved Circulation
  • Increased Energy
  • Pain Relief
  • Relaxation
  • Helps Rid the Body of Toxins
  • Decreases Headaches
  • Nerve Stimulation
  • Relieves Allergy Symptoms
  • Decreases Insomnia
  • Healthier Immune System
  • Instills Overall Sense of Well-being

Consider it as a relaxing time out or a preventative measure to support your overall wellness. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange your appointment today.
