Cold Laser is an innovative, scientifically based, FDA approved therapeutic modality. This technology offers advanced pain relief and expedited healing times through a process known as photobiostimulation. The laser works by flooding the tissues with photons. These photons energize damaged cells, increasing circulation and promoting a cascade of healing responses that breaks the cycle of inflammation. This leads to reduction or elimination of your pain.

Effleurage – a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue.
Petrissage – the squeezing, rolling, or kneading that follows Effleurage.
Friction – deep, circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, helping to increase blood flow and break down scar tissue.
Reflexology is administered by pressing on specific areas on the hands or feet and can have therapeutic effects in other parts of the body.
