The human body reacts to light; when exposed to sunlight, our skin turns darker, vitamin D is boosted, larger quantities of serotonin ( the 'hormone of happiness' ) are released in the brain-just to mention some.
These reactions are mediated by molecules that react to light.
Over 50 years of research have unravelled which wavelengths of light can be damaging ( UV light for example ) and which trigger positive reactions.
These bio-medical findings have been merged with advanced LASER technology to produce medical devices able to optimise the positive effects of light stimulation.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Laser Therapy uses selected wavelengths of light to stimulate key molecules in tissues. This activates a cascade of photochemical circulation, oxygenation and absorption of nutrients. This creates an optimal healing environment for tissues to recover. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Laser therapy isproven successful on a vast range of applications- from acute injuries to chronic pain, from musculoskeletal conditions to wounds.
It is a safe and non-invasive technique that promotes the body's own reparative processes.
LASER THERAPY IS DEVICE-DEPENDANT
Models and brands can differ significantly. Some devices have limited therapeutic action and produce mixed outcomes. Devices categorised as 'Clas 111b' can emit a very limited amount of energy, requiring long sessions to produce the therapeutic dosage needed.
The new generation of lasers, called 'Class 1V', are more powerful with applications taking only a few minutes.
The most advanced therapeutic Class 1v laser, featuring 4 different wavelengths, has a success rate of 90% and 0.07% adverse reaction (NHS data)
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The therapy doesn't induce allergic reactions because it doesn't introduce anything foreign into the body. Light is energy, and laser therapy 'simply' provides carefully calibrated energy to tissues to boost their natural reparative processes.
The treatment is not painful to the vast majority of patients. When treated with Class 1V laser you can perceive a warm sensation that patients describe as soothing and relaxing-whilst treatments with the weaker Class 111b lasers can't be perceived.
Adverse reactions are very rare, mild and temporary. A moderate increase in pain may happen in patients with nerve hypersensitivity during the first couple of sessions. There are no known side effects.
IS LASER THERAPY FOR ME?
Laser therapy is suitable for any age group, skin type, skin tone and body size. From athletes to pregnant women, from injured children to infirm elderly people; an advanced therapeutic Laser can tailor the treatment to the specific individual.
It's ideal for long term maintenance of incurable conditions such as osteoarthritis, as an alternative or in conjunction with ongoing medication.
In elite sports teams, athletes are treated proactively to prevent the onset of inflammations and tissue damages during training.
Acourse of treatments can span from 4 sessions for acute cases, to 12 or more for chronic conditions, with ideally two applications a week.

Tina did a fantastic job on my spine and trapped nerve.
A mixture of her Knowledge, Laser Treatment, and that Special Spine Machine which really helps release the muscle tension. Worth a consultation if you have back problems
