How Laser Therapy Works?

Low Level Laser Therapy aims to bio stimulate. Because of its low power nature, the effects are biochemical and not thermal and cannot cause heating and thereby damage to living tissue. Three distinct photo biological effects are known to occur when using Low Level Laser Therapy:

1. Healing growth factor response through:

  • Increased ATP and protein synthesis
  • Improved cell proliferation
  • Change in cell membrane permeability to calcium up-take

2. Pain Relief through:

  • Increased endorphin release
  • Increased serotonin
  • Suppression of nociceptor action

3. Immune system support through:

  • Increasing levels of lymphocyte activity
  • Photo-modulation of blood
  • Low level laser therapy optimises the speed of repair in acute injuries but will also stimulate the body’s repair processes in cases of non-healing or chronic conditions.

Benefits Of Laser Therapy In addition, low level laser is used as an alternative medium in the practice of acupuncture.

Laser Acupuncture provides:

  • An effective general needle-free alternative
  • Distinct energising characteristics
  • A complementary medium in the suite alongside needles and moxibustion.

Multilase® Integrative Laser Therapy™ has been shown to rapidly reduce pain, swelling, bruising and significantly reduce healing time. It is highly beneficial when introduced soon after surgery or injury to nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones. Continued treatment will effectively minimise the appearance of scars and assist in reducing tissue adhesion and the formation of thick, raised keloid scars, that can sometimes occur in certain skin types or parts of the body, such as the chest, inner and upper arm areas. A speedier recovery allows for the return to a normal lifestyle sooner.

 REGENERATE – REPAIR – RECOVER

‘Bioenergy constantly flows throughout our cells and body to maintain biological balance; however ageing, illness, injury or surgery can interfere with the flow of this vital energy. Laser therapy assists in restoring and maintaining the bodies bioenergetic balance which is essential for regeneration and repair of the body and faster recovery after illness, surgery or injury.’ What Clients/Patients are saying about Multilase™ Integrative Laser Therapy™ “I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. My hands were most severely affected. In fact, I was not able to pour a cup of tea or button up my shirt or trousers. My feet and knees were also starting to increase with pain. Intially, treatment was recommended by medical doctors- including specialists in the area of rheumatoid arthritis- that involved a series of drugs and other supressive medicines. It was my belief that there was a strong potential for serious side effects and I preferred to try a more natural approach. I chose laser therapy, after reading an article in Good Medicine Magazine about the benefits of non thermal laser light therapy. I have been undergoing this form of treatment now for 8 weeks at the Australian Insititue of Laser Therapy, and I am amazed that after only a few treatments, the swelling of my joints and the build up of inflammation is disappearing. The pain is barely noticeable and I have movement nowparticulary in my hands- which I have not enjoyed for years. I recommend that you at least give laser therapy a try!” – M BARWICK – Rheumatoid Arthritis.

“I sustained burns to 30% of my back and arms during the Bali Bombing. The doctors have queried how my skin was healing so much faster than the other patients who wre burnt at the same time. The scars became smoother with the laser therapy, and I didn’t have to rely on pressure garments so much. It also made a huge differnce in diminishing the redness of the scars and helped return normal pigment to the scar.” – L HUGUENIN – Bali Burn Patient.
