Coherence Wellness is now offering laser therapy for the treatment of acute or chronic pain, smoking cessation, and weight management. Low level laser therapy (LLLT), also known as laser biostimulation or photobiomodulation (PBM), is beneficial to the body for several reasons:
1) Light energy from a laser can help tissue damaged by injury or dysfunction to produce cellular ATP that in turn promotes healing and reduces inflammation.
2) Laser therapy on prescribed acupuncture points stimulates the release of endorphins that help reduce withdrawal symptoms associated with smoking cessation and weight management programs.
3) Research from the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Harvard Medical School (http://wellman.massgeneral.org/) shows that laser therapy can help the brain heal from depression, strokes and other disorders. This action is believed to be due to increased mitochondrial respiration, nerve cell proliferation and migration, and increased brain cytochrome oxidase enzymatic activity resulting in greater oxygen consumption.
