Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process.
When the light is held and moved around an area of the body, non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser pass through the skins layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin). The laser we use has the ability to penetrate 2 to 3 centimeters below the skin at 630 nm.
When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism. ,

Here’s what some of our patients are saying:
“I have deep knots that do not release with traditional massage. I have tried it all, massage, stretching at home, ice, heat, even expensive and very painful dry needling sessions. Dry needling was the only thing that helped, but at $100 an hour its not a treatment I can afford to do frequently. On a day I was experiencing significant pain, Kayt asked if she could try laser therapy. I figured it was worth a shot, and now I am a true believer in its ability to reduce and eliminate pain. I have experienced the same level of success with laser therapy as I did with dry needling, without the pain and expense that came with needling. I would recommend to anyone!” -A.C.
“After the first session I experienced significantly less tension and pain the next day. It felt soothing and comfortable while it was happening. Somehow my neck had more mobility and range of motion even though we didnt do much massage in that area. I attribute that to the laser and the microcurrent.” -J.S.
“I have struggled with knee pain and discomfort following microfracture meniscus surgery in my 20s. Many things have helped some (Glucosamine, CBD products), but nothing I have tried has given me the immediate and lasting results that the laser Kayt used during a massage session did. As many of you know, chronic joint pain that seems like it will never go away or feels like it will only get worse over time is frustrating and can be demoralizing. Dont feel that way! Come in and give this laser a try, you might find that fountain of youth yet!” -Dr Brandt
