Low Level Laser & Magnetic Therapy


How Low Level Laser Light Therapy Works

Low Level Laser Light Therapy is a low level laser treatment using far infrared light, which sends electrical currents into body reflex points. It is applied in close contact with the skin at sites of inflammation and damage.

Endorphins and Serotonin are released which give pain relief.

There are no known side effects or contra-indications in using Low Level Laser Light Therapy. It is painless. However, particular attention is given near the eyes, thyroid gland, during pregnancy and with cancer patients.

Laser can be used in all cases of acute and chronic pain whether muscular, vascular, rheumatic, inflammatory or of traumatic origin.

Magnetic Therapy

DSC_0088AMagnetic Therapy is the system of treating certain ailments by applying magnets of varying strength, polarity and frequency to the body.

It is believed that the magnetic fields produced by the magnets work on the energy systems in the body normalising any imbalances in particular in the nervous system. Magnetic Therapy is often particularly effective in pain relief and reducing inflammation.

It is:
– Non-invasive;
– Drug Free;
– Safe to apply; and
– Free of adverse side effects.

It may:
