LASER Therapy

LASER therapy, often referred to as Low-Level LASER Therapy (LLLT) or cold LASER therapy, involves the use of low-power light (lasers) to promote healing, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve tissue function. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not produce heat and does not damage the tissue.

LASER Therapy actually gets its name because it’s an acronym! It stands for:

Light (which is made of photons)

How Does LASER Therapy Work?

Like photosynthesis in plants, we have cellular reactions to the energy we absorb from light! The LASER machine stimulates this absorption via a process called photobiostimulation. 

This therapeutic light energy does two things when absorbed:

  1. Stimulates the mitochondria (“powerhouses” of the cell) – essentially giving your cells an “energy boost”
  2. Improves cell membrane permeability to allow better transfer of nutrients into, and waste products out of, the cell.


This results in stimulating healing, reducing inflammation, enhancing cellular metabolism, increasing blood flow, and decreasing pain.

Conditions Addressed by LASER Therapy

LASER therapy can address a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

Benefits of LASER Therapy


Since it doesn’t involve incisions, risk of complications and infections is low.

Pain Management

LLLT is known to reduce pain, offering an alternative or supplementary method to traditional pain management techniques.

Reduction in Inflammation

This can be beneficial for conditions like arthritis or post-injury swelling.

Enhanced Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

Photons from lasers penetrate deeply into the tissues and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.

Increased Metabolic Activity

LLLT increases the output of specific enzymes, better oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells, and greater production of the primary source of energy for cells, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).

Improved Vascular Activity

It can stimulate lymph and blood circulation, which is beneficial in managing swelling or edema.

Stimulated Nerve Function

Via recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissues.

Reduced Formation of Scar Tissue

This can be beneficial post-injury or post-surgery.

Tim was very knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know what was going on with my injuries. Tim knew what was up with my shoulder and worked very hard to produce the results I was hoping for when I made my massage therapy appointment. I will definitely be coming back!
