Seek wellness…

“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.

LLLT therapy promotes healing – simple as that!

Low level lasers have been proven to be a remarkably safe, effective, painless, and medication-free therapy option for many decades now.

Low level lasers are also known as “cold” lasers, meaning that they do not have a thermal effect and are used to stimulate tissue rather than destroy it. The “cold” laser does not cause any tissue damage because healthy cells exhibit weak or no effects from the low-power laser while unhealthy cells exhibit strong effects. Low level lasers have been in use since the 1960’s to help relieve a variety of conditions and no adverse side effects or negative impacts have been recorded.

With low level laser, a visible coherent light is applied to specific acupuncture points of the body (ears, hands, feet, etc.). Acupuncture points are access points to the body’s energy path ways called “meridians”. This light energy passes through the layers of the skin at these points and is received within the cell membrane by specific receptors. This causes an increase in the energy in the cell which jump-starts changes that positively stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to restore energy and re-balance the body.

Low Level Laser therapy promotes healing. It’s as simple as that!

If you’re struggling with migraines, stress and anxiety, weight control, or if you’ve been trying to quit smoking without any success, we can definitely help.

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.

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.
