Most of us have many responsibilities and worries, especially during these uncertain times. If we don’t manage our worries well, we 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 (even in our current circumstances), and the way we react to and ultimately handle our issues.
Calgary Laserworks will help you manage the overwhelming effects of stress and anxiety and empower you to live a healthier, happier life…without meds!

Your hands and feet may be the keys to managing your stress and anxiety. Learn more about reflexology and all its benefits…

Reflexology is a very old practice dating back to ancient Chinese medicine that deals with the underlying principle that we have specific reflex points in the feet (hands and ears) that relate to every single cell of the body. Under stimulation these reflexes can help the body heal itself.
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.

Laser therapy stimulates the release of endorphins, those natural “feel-good” chemicals, creating a feeling of well-being. We can help!
If you’re struggling with stress and anxiety and have tried many different therapies without any success, here at Calgary Laserworks we can definitely help.
Low level lasers have been in use since the 1960’s to help relieve a variety of conditions. They have been proven to be a remarkably safe, effective, painless, and medication-free therapy option with no adverse side effects or negative impacts 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 pathways 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.

You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health you have nothing.” Take it from those who are bedridden or restricted to a wheelchair 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.
Studies also show that being grateful and happy can reduce stress and anxiety. For example, it is known that 50% of our inclination to be happy is genetic (something you can’t affect very much), 10% is based on your surroundings/life circumstances (family, career, finances), and 40% is “deliberate action”. Deliberate actions are things we can control through our behaviour.
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 revitalizes energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up the energy pathways.
By taking deliberate action and choosing reflexology you can begin improving your health today! Give us a call today at 403-301-3730 to discover how laser treatments can help.
Hope you had a wonderful Family Day long weekend and were able to celebrate Valentine’s Day with that special someone : ) The weather here in Calgary certainly lent itself to getting outdoors and enjoying some fresh air, blue skies and Vitamin D!
As beautiful as the weather’s been in our city lately, with the warm Chinook winds rolling in, I’ve had numerous calls about people suffering with nasty “Chinook headaches”.
Even though one of a Chinook’s most striking features is the Chinook arch (a band of stationary stratus clouds) and even gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, these warm Rocky Mountain winds can cause profound weather changes which can set off severe headaches, and even migraines, in some locals who suffer with them.
Headaches are caused when blood vessels in the brain expand and press against nerves. A migraine can have many symptoms characterized by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, auras (light spots), numbness and difficulty in speech. Migraines are definitely known for their severe pain and can last for days, and in some cases weeks, making life pretty debilitating.
If you’re one of those souls who long to enjoy the lovely Chinook weather and beauty that accompanies it, but who suffers badly from these weather-related headaches, relief IS possible.
LLLT is more and more in demand for treating migraine headaches. Low level laser, instead of needles, targets key energy points on the body helping patients heal more quickly and with longer lasting results, allowing them to get back to their daily lives. Low level laser therapy is a safe and non-drug alternative for pain control.

Not all stress is bad. In fact, stressful challenges are necessary to become stronger both physically and mentally. That said, the positive effects of overcoming too much unhealthy stress can:
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. This type of laser treatment involves the application of a cold, soft, non-invasive laser beam to specific energy points on the body (ears, hands, arms, wrist, below knees and feet) which helps increase the endorphin levels, which can ultimately help reduce stress.
Call 403-301-3730 to learn more or to arrange an appointment. You’ll be relieved when you do!
Laser therapy operates on the principle similar to acupuncture, but without needles. Here at Calgary Laserworks we use a low level laser (cold laser) instead of needles to target key energy points on the body. The procedures are non-invasive, non-thermal, safe, pain-free, affordable, and have great results!
Here are the answers to a few common questions asked by first-time laser clients.
During treatment patients always say that they do not feel anything. Low level laser therapy is, in reality, very safe and painless. Low power lasers do not have the effect of warming the skin, but there are few who might perceive a very slight heat during the treatment. Other patients do experience a very light tingling feeling while having the therapy, but these patients usually have a more severe condition.
The laser is placed on the body around the ears, nose, hands and wrist.
The first appointment takes approximately one hour, however if you have any questions it can take a little more than an hour.
Subsequent treatments depend upon the history and severity of the condition. Treatments can be as short as 5 minutes or as long as 15 to 30 minutes. Usually the treatment is being administered in small or short quantities over time.
Most people feel relaxed and calm. The points around the ears, nose, hand and wrist are stimulated, and with stimulation, endorphins are released. Endorphins are the body’s natural feel-good hormones that trigger a positive feeling in the body.
Initial results can be felt hours after each session and you will feel the results for days. With every scheduled visit there is a cumulative effect so a whole new relief will be noticed.
Results are permanent for acute conditions where there is lesser damage to tissues or body organs. However, for some serious conditions, there is a possibility that some symptoms may reoccur. In these more severe cases it is suggested that a booster treatment be given twice a year.
With respect to smoking, because of the complexities of the psychological side of the addiction, no one can force you to stop smoking. We can however, help you eliminate the withdrawal and physical cravings with the use of the low level laser, allowing you to become a non-smoker in the easiest possible way. We will give you information to help eliminate your emotional desire to smoke and some nutritional guidelines to help you body to detoxify quickly. As long as you want to quit we can make it easy for you.
Of course, this depends upon the severity of the condition, your age, your general health and the length of time you’ve had the problem. The more serious the condition is, the more treatment will be required. Each client’s situation is unique and will usually require a number of treatments over a period of time. At the initial appointment and assessment, a number of sessions will be recommended.
We guarantee that we will provide our services as promised, however, we DO NOT offer a money back guarantee.
