  • Safe
  • Easy
  • Affordable
  • Effective

If you’ve tried to quit smoking you know how difficult it is. Few people ever succeed with things like gum or the patch because they are still putting nicotine into their body. Laser therapy treatments can help manage nicotine cravings, keeping you calm and relaxed during the first crucial weeks.

Laser therapy uses “cold lasers” instead of needles in an acupuncture-like treatment. The procedure is non-invasive, non-thermal, safe, pain-free and is considered a non-medical procedure. It helps with the physical part of the addiction by stimulating key pathways on the ears, nose, fingers and wrists (acupuncture points). This stimulation provides a natural high by sending a signal to your brain to produce large amounts of pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. This flush of endorphins leaves you with a feeling of overall well-being, while greatly alleviating most, if not all, of the cravings for nicotine, withdrawal symptoms, and the temptation to smoke another cigarette.

Don’t delay. Quit today.

We will support you and work with you when you need it the most. During this time you will be making changes both physically and habitually. Calgary Laserworks will:

  • help you understand these changes as this is the key to success
  • provide information to help you change your behavior, make smarter choices, and of course, live a healthier life
  • help you kick the nicotine addiction because we know quitting can be difficult, a bit frightening, and stressful

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!

Cold laser therapy – alternative method of pain relief

Cold laser therapy or low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been used for years on patients seeking effective, alternative methods of 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 has been used to treat a broad range of both acute and chronic conditions including migraine headaches, neck, back and knee pain, arthritis, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome, to name a few.

Cold laser therapy does not mask pain or only address the symptoms of the disease like many pharmacological treatments. It treats the underlying condition to promote healing. This means that the benefits of cold laser therapy gives maximum opportunity for repairing damaged tissue in the shortest amount of time.

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!

Please note that cold laser therapy has definitely shown major benefits for chronic pain sufferers, but the healing response time may not be as quick as when compared to acute sufferers. 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 eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality, thereby relieving those pain-filled days and sleepless nights, ultimately giving you your life back.

Call us here at Calgary Laserworks today to discuss how we can help alleviate your pain.

In Remembrance…

On Wednesday November 11, 2015 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.

Fall back on Halloween night…

As the saying goes, spring forward, fall back…

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 1, at 2:00 a.m.

And, Happy Halloween…

If you’re a kid or a kid at heart who gets an adrenaline rush out of being scared to death, check out Fright Nights Halloween Events Guide. You will experience haunted houses, Halloween themed carnival games, creepy and disturbing entertainment, and FEAR.

International Day of Peace

Monday September 21, 2015 is International Peace Day.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. It is sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day. The day was first celebrated on Tuesday 21 September 1982. The theme of the first International Day of Peace was the Right to peace of all people.

International Peace Day is dedicated to world peace, and The United Nations “invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day.”

As individuals we can take a moment on Monday to do a random act of kindness, simply something to brighten someone’s day. Speaking a kind word, writing a note of gratitude to someone you love, holding a door open for someone, lighting a candle, buying a coffee for the person in the vehicle behind you at your local cafe drive-thru, or simply acknowledging someone with a smile, are things we’re all capable of. The smallest act of nurturing inner peace can change the world one person at a time.
