Lose weight with low level laser therapy

The things that we do have precise and predictable effects on our bodies, including losing weight. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also called cold laser therapy, can enhance the effectiveness of weight loss for those who are willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes such as developing healthy eating and exercise habits.

LLLT uses infrared or near-infrared light energy to penetrate the skin tissue and stimulate (accelerate) the skin cells. It operates on the principle similar to the 5,000 year old ancient Asian healing art of Acupuncture. Certain pressure points are targeted by the laser lights, emitted by a hand-held device, to trigger shifts in the patient’s inner energy. As a weight loss treatment, the activated cells effectively jump-start your body’s metabolism and suppress the appetite and control food cravings.

Low level laser therapy is considered a non-invasive, safe, easy and painless alternative weight loss method. As an added bonus, while you may feel a slight tingling during treatment, in most cases after treatment you’ll notice a calm and relaxed sensation. This is because LLLT reduces the level of anxiety and eases stress. Who in the world wouldn’t want to feel like that?! Ahhh…

Calgary Laserworks will help to empower you to live a healthier, happier life. If you have questions, or would like more information, call 403-301-3730 today.

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!

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

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.

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.

The Reflexology Option

The origins of reflexology can be traced back may thousands of years. Many civilizations and cultures have used this ancient form of healing throughout history. The main principle of reflexology that has evolved with time and research is that the feet mirror the body.

In the early 30”s, Dr Riley had a physiotherapist in his office called Eunice Ingham. Dr. J. Riley taught the reflex technique to his wife Elizabeth and Eunice Ingham. Eunice Ingham became engrossed in zone therapy. With the aid of visiting Chinese doctors, who gave her documentation illustrating how the Chinese perceive the feet to mirror the body, she started equating areas on the feet with the anatomy of the body and drew up detailed foot charts.

Eunice Ingham’s work became more and more reflex based but, confusingly, she continued to use the term “zone therapy” for some time. She found that not only did “zone therapy” relieve pain but it also promoted healing. Over the course of her work she changed the term from “zone therapy” to “compression massage” and finally settled with “reflexology“.

Benefits of reflexology include:

Stress Reduction

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.

Improved Circulation

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.

Increased Energy

Reflexology revitalizes energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up the energy pathways.

  • Pain relief
  • Relaxation
  • Assistance in getting rid of the body’s toxins
  • Decrease in the number of headaches
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Relief of allergy symptoms
  • Lessened fatigue, feeling energized
  • Healthier immune system
  • Insomnia
  • Sense of well-being

Relief is only an appointment away. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange a reflexology appointment.

Does Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Work?

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

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 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.

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