Quit smoking as a gift to yourself!

If you’ve been a smoker for a long while and have tried to quit numerous times, you know that it’s not easy and that there’s no one way to quit smoking that works for everyone.

In your heart you know that to quit, you have to be ready both mentally and emotionally. You have to want to quit smoking for yourself, not because you feel pressure to quit from family or friends.

Most people will try and quit many times before finally being able to quit. If you find yourself struggling to quit smoking perhaps it’s time to try low level laser therapy (LLLT).

Low level laser therapy can be used instead of needles for acupuncture and is ten times more effective than patches, gum or hypnotherapy according to a couple of recent trials in Scotland.

At Calgary Laserworks, we focus on treating the three most common symptoms associated with withdrawal:

  • Block the need for nicotine
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Suppress your appetite

We are all about helping people empower themselves to live a healthier, happier life and are truly here to help you succeed in ending your addiction to nicotine.

Laser therapy is safe, easy, affordable, and effective. Why not give us a call today!

Too much stress?

“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” – Chinese Proverb

Laser therapy stimulates the release of endorphins, those natural “feel-good” chemicals, creating a feeling of well-being. Stress and anxiety can interrupt the smooth flow of energy throughout the body, but laser therapy has been shown to help the energy flow smoothly, reducing stress and lowering anxiety.

If you’re finding it difficult to manage your stress levels and are concerned that’s it’s becoming chronic (lasting longer than 3 months), low level laser therapy is a very good option.

If you’d like to learn more about how cold laser therapy can help or if you have a question, call 403-301-3730 or email calgarylaserworks@telus.net.

10 Ways Reflexology Can Bring Immense Relief

What is Reflexology anyway?

Reflexology is an ancient Chinese technique that uses pressure-point massage usually on the feet (but also on the hands and ears). It deals with the underlying principle that these pressure points or reflexes relate to every single cell of the body. Working these reflexes restores the flow of energy throughout the entire body and assists it in regaining or maintaining balance.

Did you know that reflexology has been around for thousands of years? It actually originated around 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 of 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 nurse and physiotherapist, refined the “zone therapy” developed by Fitzgerald, 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.

Reflexology was developed into a skillful, manual therapy, bringing many people relief and many benefits in their often fast-paced and stressful lifestyles. It is now considered a great form of preventative medicine. Since at least 75% of all our health problems can be linked to nervous stress, reflexology is a valuable tool for supporting the well-being of anyone.

10 benefits of reflexology:

  1. Improves circulation & nerve supply
  2. Releases physical & emotional stress
  3. Provides pain relief
  4. Helps the body eliminate toxins
  5. Decreases the number of headaches
  6. Relieves allergy symptoms
  7. Lessens fatigue & enhances energy
  8. Stimulates a healthier immune system
  9. Improves sleep & decreases insomnia
  10. Gives an overall sense of well-being

Reflexology is a very gentle, non-invasive form of healing and can bring immense relief and dramatic changes oftentimes in only a couple of sessions.
