Pain Relief

Pain Relief

Laser and bio-electrical stimulation of acupressure points has a relaxation response with decreased heart rate, lower blood pressure, stress reduction and increased energy and tissue regeneration. It has been shown to produce a calming or tranquilizing action.

One way that laser therapy helps to relieve pain is by stimulating the release and synthesis of serotonin. Increased levels of serotonin and endorphin’s tone down pain-related messages sent to your brain and improve your body’s ability to fight pain.

Acupressure is currently being studied for how effective it is in helping relieve many kinds of pain. There are promising findings in some conditions, such as chronic low-back pain and osteoarthritis of the knee. Laser Therapy stimulates the same acupressure points in a pain-free and non-invasive way.

Some conditions which laser therapy can be particularly helpful for are:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Headache/Migraine Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Low-Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Osteoarthritis/Knee Pain
  • Postoperative Dental Pain
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Myofascial Pain
  • Menstrual Cramps

Acupressure for pain relief is becoming more and more common and endorsed even in Western Medicine circles. It is used routinely in several Australian emergency departments and is now undergoing a randomized, controlled trial in three Melbourne hospitals to alleviate pain from acute migraines, back pain and ankle sprain.

One advantage of this type of treatment, is that the rates of side effects are substantially lower than that of many drugs or other accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions.
