We are pleased to now offer MLS therapy as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with acupuncture/chiropractic care.
How does it work?
Laser therapy involves directing laser light energy into inflamed or damaged tissues to accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin which enables light photons to penetrate the tissue and interact with molecules within the cells to cause several biochemical effects.
What to expect:
After a full clinical assessment of your condition, we will tailor make a treatment protocol just for you provided laser theapy is suitable for your condition.
The number of sessions you will require will depend on your condition – this will be discussed in your initial appointment.
Treatments are quick and painless and often you will feel the results during the first treatment. For chronic conditions it may take a few sessions for you to feel the effects, but the cellular benefits will be immediate!

*Please note there are some contraindications to the use of laser which include: pregnancy, pacemaker, over active growth plates in children, epilepsy and active cancer. There are also some restrictions in use and relative contraindications in patients who are taking anti-coagulants or are diabetic. For recent trauma including bruising it is advised to wait 48 hours after the event before commencing laser therapy. This is one of the reasons your practitioner will ask you to complete a detailed medical history prior to commencing treatment.
