Cold Laser Therapy
Note: After a year of looking into this therapy, I decided it was finally time to get this! I am so happy that I have this service to offer you because Cold Laser Therapy has worked so well for me and clients I've worked with. After speaking to an Olympian skier who uses this as part of his program in Colorado, I decided it was time. You can sign up for this through several options when you book your appointment.
What is it and why I use it on my clients
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue helping to accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.
The treatments per area are short, 15 minutes per treatment. Through a hand-held device, non-thermal photons of light are emitted from the laser that pass through the skins layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin). This light has the ability to penetrate 2 to 5 centimeters below the skin with programming that focuses that light to go directly to the issues. It works so effectively because the cold laser light can be programmed to the desired depth for treatment.
Cold laser therapy is form of complementary and alternative treatment for numerous conditions including pain relief, treatment of acute injury, pain from edema and swelling, general pain relief and relaxing muscle tissue, muscle spasm, chronic pain and general relief, acute pain and temporary muscle relief, joint injuries and repair, rotator cuff pain, knee injury pain, sprains, Achilles pain or sprain, Calcaneal Spur pain, Tennis Elbow pain, Hip sprain or strain, Tedonitis and other tendon related issues, Sciatic pain and other nerve related issues.
My own testimony from using this on me is that is truly amazing in its effectiveness to heal pain.
Treatments are available in conjunction with massage but may be purchased separately and in packages. I recommend packages because for many treatments it may take a total of 3-5 sessions depending on what the issue is. Most people I've worked on have felt the effects from the very first session but like my massages, sometimes followup sessions are required.
I am happy to be able to provide you with cold laser therapy.
