Low Level Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, non-thermal light therapy that gently penetrates the surface of the skin and underlying tissues and cells with safe levels of energy. This FDA approved, class 1 laser light is not focused, concentrated or powerful enough to cut or burn. It is powerful enough, however, to reenergizes your body’s cells by delivering electrons back to the atoms that make up the cells which stimulate natural healing.

Low Level Laser Therapy: Benefits

This is a non-invasive technique that can treat a variety of conditions and promote deep relaxation. The benefits of low level laser therapy include the following:

  • Reduces pain by producing endorphins
  • Reduces inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes and helping with the release of anti-inflammatory enzymes
  • Increases blood circulation by enhancing lymphatic drainage
  • Increases cellular ATP production by providing cells with useful energy
  • Releases tight muscles both smooth and striated muscles
  • Speeds bone repair by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation

Low Level Laser Therapy: Why It Works

Using less than one watt of power, the laser will penetrate the skin and underlying tissues to the body’s cells and stimulate the cellular energy thereby increasing flow and helping your body’s natural healing process.

Dr. Larry Lytle, the developer of the laser I use, has the following to say about why the low level laser works.

As you probably know, everything on earth that has mass is made up of atoms, which make up the cells, which make up the tissue, which make up the organs, which make entire systems – that includes all vertebrates, including humans. The health of all cells is based on cellular energy. If the cells don’t receive enough energy, they will weaken and the organism will become sick. For you or any vertebrate to be healthy, the cells need exactly the right kind and the right amount of energy. Every time you or your pet gets injured or become sick, the energy flow to the cells is disrupted at the atom level. Atomic Healing™ restores that energy at the cell level. If the energy is not restored, sickness lingers longer and it will take longer for injuries to heal. That’s what a low level laser device does. It reenergizes the cells by delivering electrons back to the atoms that make up the cells.

Use of low level laser therapy helps the body get the cellular energy it needs to reduce pain and heal quickly.

Low Level Laser Therapy: History

Budapest university student Endre Mester began experimenting with the effects of lasers on skin cancer in 1967, just a few years after the first working laser was invented. He shaved the backs of mice and found that the shaved hair grew back faster after lasers were applied to the skin. Light therapy has since been used to treat everything from rheumatoid arthritis to the flu. It is often used in acupuncture and other forms of therapy to stimulate the acupressure points of the body, without using needles. It’s also been found effective in treatment of diabetes, prostate issues, osteoarthritis and a number of other conditions.
