Why would we use it ? The application of laser therapy is wide reaching; from Dentistry and Equine industry use, to Podiatry, skin issues and bacterial control. Excellent for every day application on aching limbs to emotional balancing, increasing endorphins in the brain and even detoxifying the body. By knowing how the body works, application of light to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms means that there are endless applications. A good analogy for the cells in the body is the Internet; the millions of intelligent computers are connected and attached to the Internet that is a ‘Distributed Network’. Just like the body has millions of cells, the internet is connected to millions of computers. The computers have servers, the body has nodes and the main receptor is the brain. What science is finding now, is that the body thinks as a whole. Using the light as signals to the brain can get the body to respond and activate healing.
NASA use this technology on their Astronauts to keep them healthy in space!Cold Lasers stimulate the energy engine of our cells, the mitochondria to produce more Adenosinetriphosphate (ATP). This energy ‘engine’ governs 80 – 90% of the cells’ activities. To the human body, donated photons means more ATP energy, which in turn means healthier cells and quicker regeneration helping the body to heal faster. During an early experiment using laser on cells, scientists thought that using the laser would destroy the unhealthy cancerous pathogens, however, what was discovered instead was that the healthy cells in the culture had increased in vitality and strength and conquered the pathogens themselves! The light gave them more energy to create their desired healthy environment.
As a practitioner, I use the scalar wave laser technology. Different to other lasers currently on the market in terms of it’s efficacy, the Scaler Wave technology acts to wipe trauma form the cell and this can shift the cell back to its intended state in addition to the light-donating benefits.
