ABOUT LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY
WHAT IS LASER THERAPY?
Low Level Light Therapy uses visible or near infrared light for reducing inflammation, edema, pain, and promotes healing. Low Level Light Therapy also prevents cell death and prevents tissue damage unlike other modalities available. (Source: Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology). Typical medications have side effects and can prevent the healing process, whereas LLLT actually improves healing as well as reduces pain and inflammation. Over 400 clinical trials have been completed and 4000 studies have been published indicating that LLLT is safer than pharmaceutical protocols.
WHY LLLT for Anxiety and Depression?
Anxiety and depression affects 1 in 18 children and 40% of adults. Scientific American has established that anxiety and depression is caused by both hormonal imbalances and an increase in interstitial swelling in the gray matter of the brain. LLLT reduces that inflammation. Once that inflammation is eliminated, effective hormone transport can happen in the brain, leading to a more balanced mental state WITHOUT the use of pharmaceuticals.
The patent-pending protocols that we implement under the professional direction of Dr. Susan Bostian are effective at decreasing anxiety and depression.
