Laser therapy offers clients a safe and effective therapy for a wide range of medical conditions, including soft tissue and sports injuries, chronic pain conditions, arthritic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, wound healing and an extensive number of additional conditions. Laser therapy is the use of light from a Low Intensity Laser Diode or an array of Superluminous Diodes to eliminate pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation.
How we breathe influences not only our physiology, but also our mental and our emotional state. Breathing is something that generally “just happens,” but we have the power to take control of that breath, even if only for a short time, and learn to optimise our respiration, and so improve the quality of our lives. Functional breathing training benefits, not only the respiratory system, but also the Autonomic Nervous System, cardiovascular, and digestive systems. The breath can be used to alter our physiology, our mental/emotional state, and our biomechanics, which can help with things like anxiety, stress, pain management, asthma, nasal congestion, headaches, boost the immune system, and even improve sleep. Small changes can have a big impact.
