If you’ve been struggling with migraine pain and conventional medicine doesn’t seem to have any answers, maybe it’s time to try low-level laser therapy (LLLT).
Low-level laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, has been used for years on patients seeking effective, alternative methods of migraine pain relief. In fact, cold laser procedures are an excellent option for patients who require treatment, but who prefer to avoid medication or invasive treatments.
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure meaning that it does not heat or cut the tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. This means that there is no prolonged recovery time. The laser works at a cellular level by utilizing specific wavelengths of light to interact with your tissue which helps to accelerate your body’s natural healing mechanism.
Cold laser therapy does not mask migraine pain like many pharmacological treatments. It treats the underlying condition to promote healing.
Cold laser therapy can be easily administered. The cold lasers are handheld devices often the size of a flashlight. Clinicians place the laser directly over the affected area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the cold laser unit. It is quick and painless!
While each session only takes a few minutes, it may take a series of treatments before you can gauge its effectiveness.
Overall, cold laser therapy can help relieve those pain-filled days and sleepless nights, ultimately giving you your life back.

Did you know that secondhand smoke causes almost 50,000 deaths in North America every year? That number includes almost 1000 infants. Those are deaths of non-smokers.
Isn’t that shocking?
Smokers are at high-risk for many diseases:
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis)
- Lung cancer
- Cancer of the mouth, lip, throat and voice box
- Pancreatic cancer
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Bladder cancer
Just to name a few – yikes!
Secondhand smoke can cause all of these diseases and more not only in smokers, but in non-smokers as well. For babies and children, no amount of second-hand smoke is safe. According to the Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey (CTUMS), 4.5% of children between the ages of 0 and 17 years were regularly exposed to second-hand smoke in the home.
The thought of those stats is staggering. Isn’t it time for you to quit smoking…yet?
Calgary Laserworks is here to help. Take the plunge. Call 403-301-3730 NOW!
“It’s easy to quit smoking. I’ve done it hundreds of times.” – Mark Twain
You know the health risks of smoking but that hasn’t stopped you. In fact, you’ve been thinking and even talking about quitting for years. Well don’t feel guilty. You’re definitely not alone. Nicotine is powerful stuff. Many people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good.
At Calgary Laserworks we use a low level laser (cold laser) instead of needles to target key energy points on the body. These points are found around the ears, nose, hand and wrist, and when stimulated endorphins – the body’s natural feel-good hormones – are released. This endorphin release has a calming, relaxing effect on the body which helps to reduce or eliminate nicotine cravings and the desire for cigarettes, as well as withdrawal symptoms.
In addition to stimulating an endorphin release, the laser stimulates the body’s natural ability to detoxify the nicotine, helping you through the nicotine withdrawal more quickly.
Low level laser treatments are a safe, non-invasive, pain-free, drug-free and highly effective solution that will help you quit smoking for good.
Don’t doubt yourself – set a date to quit in 2017 – you CAN do it!

Why Laughter Scares Depression, Anxiety, Activates Happy Feelings
“Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.” – J. Stanford
The best approach to wellness is to seek options that contribute to an optimal state of well being, not just a state of ‘survival’. Here at Calgary Laserworks we have found great long-term success using Low Level Laser (cold laser) for treatments such as smoking cessation, migraines, stress, anxiety and more. We are 100% committed to helping you reach your goals and in motivating you to live a healthier, happier life.
Laser therapy operates on the principle similar to acupuncture, the 5000 year old ancient art of healing, but without needles. We use a Low Level Laser instead of needles to target key energy points on the body. These points are found around the ears, nose, hand and wrist and when stimulated endorphins (the body’s natural feel-good hormones) are released. Endorphins have a natural calming, relaxing effect on the body which enhance the chance of healing success.
The procedures are non-invasive, non-thermal, safe, pain-free, affordable, and research indicates that Low Level Laser therapy has great results! The number of treatments will vary with regard to the individual problem. Since each patient and condition responds to laser therapy differently, some patients feel improvement right from the start, but it is common that lasting improvement is noticeable after a series of visits.
Contact us today to discuss how we can help you improve your life. We look forward to treating you!
Make 2017 your best year yet!
You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health, you have nothing.”
All it takes is one extended bout on the sidelines of life and you understand the truth in that expression.
Studies have shown that any number of things can have a detrimental effect on your health. Stress and worry can lead to immune system breakdown and heart-related issues. Smoking is HUGE factor in the state of your health. It has been proven to cause lung disease, cancer, emphysema and coronary breakdown, to name just a few.
Studies also show that being thankful and happy can reduce stress. Research shows that 50% of our inclination to be happy is genetic, something you can’t effect very much, 10% is based on surroundings (job, money and family), and 40% is “deliberate action”. Deliberate actions are things we can control through behaviour.
So how can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?
We can help you take deliberate actions! We’ll help you stop smoking, reduce stress and anxiety, reduce headaches, help you with weight loss and help you relax, all which can improve your immune system and much, much more.
Choose healthy goals and feel good about meeting them this year by calling 403-301-3730! You’ll be so grateful and proud of yourself for taking the steps to improve your health and well-being!
