Cold Laser Therapy


Cold laser therapyCold laser therapy is a treatment whereby a cold laser is utilized to treat chronic and acute pain.
Cold lasers treat the same meridian points that Acupuncture, with laser beams stimulating the body's acupoints rather than needles.
The laser mimics solar radiation, producing collagen and Vitamin D, and increasing epithelial cell activity and capillary blood vessel formation at the treatment site. The electric pulse increases serotonin levels and thus the body is guided towards healing, and pain is alleviated.
