Registered Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy decreases stress and help control pain. Perhaps less known is the effectiveness of massage therapy in treating deeper structures of the body such as ligaments, bones and joints, fascia, blood vessels, organs and other soft tissue of the body. Massage therapy can provide relief for many common conditions such as migraines, pregnancy, sports injuries and arthritis.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of Qi energy that in traditional Chinese medicine is considered essential to health. When the body is healthy, Qi, flows smoothly through the meridians that make up a conceptual network of pathways throughout the entire body. Therapeutic effects include pain relief, increased energy, improved mood and improved body function.

Laser Therapy

image38

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation.

It helps reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing— both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, or even bones. It utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity.

What does it feel like?

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy creates a gentle, soothing warmth. Many patients receiving LightForce Laser Therapy treatments report enjoying the experience, especially when a massage-ball treatment head is used to deliver what is often referred to as a “laser massage.”

Patients receiving treatments with higher-power lasers also frequently report a rapid decrease in pain. For someone suffering from chronic pain, this effect can be particularly pronounced.

How Many Treatments does it take?

Many people experience pain relief in 1 treatment. Recommended dosing is 2-3 times per week for 5-10 treatment sessions. Acute injuries usually require fewer treatments, while chronic conditions may need more. Laser treatments initiate the healing process and can continue to reduce inflammation for 24-72 hours after treatment. Laser Therapy is treatment that accompanies Physiotherapy, a Physiotherapy assessment is required to access Laser Therapy.
