Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a form of alternative medicine that applies low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to the surface of or in orifices of the body. LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) or Photobiomodulation Therapy which is the best technical term, is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.

Cold Laser Therapy, also called low-level or near-infrared laser therapy—uses low-level light energy to treat a wide array of conditions, ranging from sprains, tendinitis, back pain, and arthritis to temporomandibular disorder (chronic jaw pain), carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and leg ulcers.

For over forty years, low level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) and LED (light emitting diode) therapy (also known as photobiomodulation) has been shown to reduce inflammation and edema, induce analgesia, and promote healing in a range of musculoskeletal pathologies

Physical Conditions, such as:

  • tendinitis,

  • strains / pain in neck, back and other body parts,

  • fibromyalgia,

  • carpel tunnel syndrome

  • rotator cuff syndrome

  • frozen shouldersciatica

  • inflammation and edema,

  • promote healing in a range of musculoskeletal pathologies

  • other conditions not listed, discuss with your therapist

About Neuropathy Animation 

Improve blood flow, increase circulation and reduce pain with infrared LED light therapy! This animation explains how one can promote healing and energy at the cellular level, to stimulate nerve growth and repair.​


Neuropathy can be greatly reduced and often times eliminated through infrared LED light therapy, diet and movement.
