Similar to the principle of acupuncture, but without needles!

Here at Calgary Laserworks we thought we’d revisit the fundamentals of low level laser (cold laser) therapy and how it targets 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.

How does low level laser therapy feel?

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.

Where do you place the laser?

The laser is placed on the body around the ears, nose, hands and wrist.

How long is the first appointment?

The first appointment takes approximately one hour, however if you have any questions it can take a little more than an hour.

How long does each subsequent treatment take?

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.

How do you feel once you are treated?

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.

Are these results permanent and when will you feel the results?

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.

How many treatments should you undergo?

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.

Is it guaranteed?

We guarantee that we will provide our services as promised, however, we DO NOT offer a money back guarantee.

Stop chewing tobacco habit

Using chewing tobacco is not a risk-free alternative to smoking. It’s an addictive, harmful habit just like smoking and can take a toll on your oral and overall health.

Some of the irritants in chewing tobacco can cause:

  • tooth decay (cavities)
  • staining of teeth
  • abrasion of teeth
  • bad breath (halitosis)
  • receding gums
  • gum disease
  • bone loss around roots
  • tooth loss

Nicotine Treatment Package

Quitting tobacco is one of the best changes you can make for your health. At Calgary Laserworks we want to help you make the best choices possible to become tobacco free. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange an appointment.

Choose healthy goals & feel amazing!

You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health, you have nothing.”

All it takes is one extended bout on the sidelines of life and you understand the truth in that expression.

Studies have shown that any number of things can have a detrimental effect on your health. Smoking is HUGE factor in the state of your health. It has been proven to cause lung disease, cancer, emphysema and coronary breakdown, to name just a few. Stress and worry can lead to immune system breakdown and heart-related issues.

Studies also show that being thankful and happy can reduce stress. Research shows 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.

So how can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?

We can help you take deliberate actions! We’ll help you stop smoking, reduce stress and anxiety, and help you relax, all which can improve your immune system and much, much more.

Call 403-301-3730.  You’ll be so grateful and proud of yourself for taking the steps to improve your health and well-being!

Vape-free & lovin’ it!

Make the decision to quit vaping today. You won’t regret it.

There’s now evidence that vaping is not a safer alternative than tobacco cigarettes. Not only does vaping have nicotine health risks, but the vapor contains harmful chemicals and very fine particles that are inhaled into the lungs and exhaled into the environment. Learn more about the side effects of vaping.

Quitting vaping can be difficult, just like trying to stop smoking, because both are addictive.

Here at Calgary Laserworks 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. We 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

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is an effective, safe, and well-tolerated treatment that leaves you with a sense of well-being. The sooner you avoid e-cigarettes, the healthier your body will be.

Call us at (403) 301-3730 to arrange an appointment. We’re truly here to help you succeed and we want to help you make healthier choices and become vape free.
