Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) encourages the collecion of a body fluid known as lymph. Lymph is present in the tissue through out the body and its function is to carry nutrients to the cells and collect waste, cell debris, bacteria and foreign material present in the tissue spaces.


The massage allows the lymph to flow more freely around the body, renewing and strengthening cells and tissues while allowing it to be cleansed as it passes through the lymph nodes. Any excess fluid eventually leaves the body via the kidneys. MLD is a very soft, pleasant and relaxing type of massage, but at the same time, it works deeply inside the body by stimulating the lymphatic vessels and nodes.


Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) benefits include:


  • Reduce swelling
  • Decrease pain
  • Promote healing
Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine which involves the insertion of solid filiform acupuncture needles into the skin at very specific points of the body in order to achieve a theraputic effect. There is no drug injected into the body, as the needles by themselves provide the necessary beneficial effects.


The needles used are solid, and usually are stainless steel, although gold or silver may also be used. The needles are very fine, flexible and rounded but sharp at the tip. The design of the needle allows it to slide smoothly through the tissue.


Acupuncture benefits have been proven effective with:


  • Lower back pain
  • Neck disorders
  • Recurrent headaches
  • Post operative nausea / vomiting
  • Acute vomiting induced by chemotherapy
  • Many other types of pain and conditions (consult with the Acupuncturist to get further details)
TheraLASE

The TheraLASE laser is unmatched in the industry. It penetrates further, heals faster, and relieves your pain and suffering within minutes of treatment.


TheraLASE theraputic laser treatments provide patients with a safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body's own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration.


TheraLASE lasers work by supplying energy to the body in the forms of billions of photons of light. The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to commence its own tissue repairs. The biostimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain and an increase in tissue regeneration and healing.


TheraLASE's dual wavelength super pulsing technology is the only laser that penetrates up to 4" into tissue activating all three known cellular pathways:

  1. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Pathway: Accelerates Healing
  2. Nitric Oxide (NO) Pathway: Reduces Inflammation
  3. Lipid Absorption Pathway: Decreases Pain

TheraLASE lasers offer treatment for acute and chronic pain conditions, addictions, cosmetic revitalization. Our lasers help you regain the active and healthy lifestyle you yearn for by utilizing the power of light energy.


Over 3,000 clinical studies worldwide have proven the success of theraputic lasers in the healing of neural muscular-skeletal conditions. Some popular laser treatable conditions include:

  • Tennis/Golfer's Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Knee Pain
  • Migraines
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Low Back Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neck Pain
