Laser therapy is a non-medical procedure that uses low level laser beams to help promote the release of endorphins (brain chemicals) in the body helping to lower tensions and stress levels, as well as eliminate cravings for nicotine.
During the laser treatment energy points on the hands, face, and ears will be stimulated. The treatment is very calming, pain-free and leaves you with a sense of well-being.
Calgary Laserworks will help with the key aspects of nicotine addiction and the common symptoms associated with withdrawal – physical, psychological, appetite suppression and detoxification:
At Calgary Laserworks we do not prescribe, we only suggest. We provide a list of supplements that will help the body eliminate nicotine and other toxins. The sooner all the poisons are removed from your body the sooner any residual cravings will disappear. The first 72 hours of quitting are considered to be a crucial detoxification period.
Technology has improved to the point where laser therapy is a safe, highly effective and affordable way to quit smoking once and for all.
If you long to live a normal, healthy and smoke free lifestyle, it’s never too late to get started. Regain control…call 403-301-3730. We’re here to help you succeed.
Did you know that Reflexology originated just about the same time as Acupuncture?
No one in the West had heard of Reflexology until an American ear, nose and throat specialist named Dr. William Fitzgerald, introduced it at the beginning this century. He took the first steps toward dividing the body into ten reflex zones and 3000 years after its conception Reflexology came to America.
In 1930 Eunice Ingham, a masseur, refined the “zone therapy” developed by Fritgerald, to what is known today as Reflexology. She was instrumental in charting the feet in detail to determine which part of the sole corresponded to which part of the body.
Many conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, diabetes, headaches, PMS and sinusitis to name a few can be helped with Reflexology.
Calgary Laser Works & Reflexology can guide you through the process of discovering this ancient form of therapy.
How can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?
You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health you have nothing.”
Take it from those that are bed ridden or restricted to a wheel chair because of their health that this statement is true.
Studies have shown that stress has a huge effect on your health. Stress and worry can lead to immune system breakdown and heart related issues.
Smoking is another big factor in the state of your health. It causes lung disease, cancer, emphysema and coronary breakdown.
Studies also show that being thankful and happy can reduce stress.
It is known 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.
We asked the question, how can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?
It can help you stop smoking, reduce stress, it can help you relax, it can improve your immune system and much more.
Be grateful you are improving your health.
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.
In the early 30”s, Dr Riley had a physiotherapist in his office called Eunice Ingham. Dr. J. Riley taught the reflex technique to his wife Elizabeth and Eunice Ingham. Eunice Ingham became engrossed in zone therapy. With the aid of visiting Chinese doctors, who gave her documentation illustrating how the Chinese perceive the feet to mirror the body, she started equating areas on the feet with the anatomy of the body and drew up detailed foot charts.
Eunice Ingham’s work became more and more reflex based but, confusingly, she continued to use the term “zone therapy” for some time. She found that not only did “zone therapy” relieve pain but it also promoted healing. Over the course of her work she changed the term from “zone therapy” to “compression massage” and finally settled with “reflexology“.
When we are stressed our body’s defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology can assist in reducing stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.
Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and removing the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
Improved Immune System
Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system thus reducing risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being.
Reflexology revitalises energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up the energy pathways.
In some cases, temporary negative effects of reflexology occur. These include:
These side effects may occur as a result of toxins being emitted from the body. Any negative side effects which occur are not expected to last any longer than 24 hours. Such results may occur in someone who first experiences reflexology, but are unlikely to occur again and are only the result of the positive changes being made in the body.
Things to remember

Did you know that February is heart and stroke month?
One of the biggest contributors to heart attacks and strokes is smoking and second hand smoke.
Are you someone who smokes and is finding it hard to quit? Do you know someone who wants to quit but just can’t get there.
Nicotine is the drug that makes tobacco and tobacco products addictive. The more you smoke or use tobacco the more your body craves it. Cigars, cigarettes, pipes, snuff and chewing tobacco can all lead to heart attack and stroke.
There are alternatives to traditional ways of quitting tobacco.
Laser treatment has proven to be an effective way to break the habit.
Calagary Laser Works can give you all the options and information on how laser treatment can help you quit smoking.
