Near Infrared Laser Therapy N.I.L.T
When it comes to pain management, Laser therapies are extremely safe and can provide amazing results. It is an effective alternative to surgical procedures, does not require the use of drugs and has virtually no side effects! This N.I.L.T has faster and more effective results than other modalities of lasers because of its ability to reach deep tissues. It simply does what other lasers cannot. This means faster treatments for a greater number of applications. Laser therapy helps to painlessly reset your muscle memory, release tension, and reduce pain instantly. How does it work? Photons of laser light penetrate through the skin and are absorbed by special components in your body's cells called chromophores. Just as photosynthesis creates energy for plants to grow, the absorption of the photons by your cells causes increased production of cellular energy. Another example in humans is vitamin D. Vitamin D is also synthesized via a photochemical process. Using laser light in areas of damage or injury means there is more available energy for accelerated healing. This is called biostimulation. Because of its biostimulatory nature, laser therapy has the potential to help almost any scenario whereby the body's cells are not working to their optimum potential including muscle cells, bone cells and cartilage.
Acupuncture is the placement of extremely fine, hair-thin needles into the body at specific points; shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of two thousand years. Recently, electromagnetic research has confirmed their locations.
How does it work? Acupuncture includes the use of all allied techniques of Oriental Medicine, both traditional and modern, for the diagnosis, prevention, cure or correction of any disease or pain. This is achieved by means of controlling and regulating the flow and balance energy in the body to restore it's proper functioning and state of health. Techniques of Oriental Medicine include: moxibustion, herbology, dietary and nutritional counseling, body work, breathing and exercise.
Oriental Medicine (aka Chinese Medicine) is the oldest, professional, continually practiced, literate medicine in the world. This medical system's written literature stretches back almost 2,500 years. And currently, 1/4 of the world’s population makes use of it.
How does it work? Chinese Medicine works by re-establishing balance and harmony within the body. This means balance between yin and yang, balance between the five phases, balance between the viscera and bowels, and balance between the qi, blood and body fluids. This balance is re-established by supporting the body’s healthy or righteous energy and attacking an unhealthy or negative energy.
