Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.
The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low light levels are not enough to heat your body’s tissue. The level of light is low compared to other forms of laser therapy, such as those used to destroy tumors and coagulate tissue.
During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light causes a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
The patient will feel the laser device against the skin, and the pressure may be uncomfortable for recent injuries, but the procedure is otherwise painless and non-invasive. Each treatment typically takes a few minutes; most injuries will require several sessions.
The detoxification footbath (usually referred to as just a ‘footbath’) uses positively charged ions to draw negatively charged toxins from the body through the feet. Toxins can come from impurities in the air, chemicals in cleaning products and beauty products, prescription medications, and even stress and depression. Build-up occurs in the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph, and skin. The benefits of drawing these toxins out of the body can range from increased mental clarity to strengthened immunity.
Some patients experience itching, especially when heavy metals are being extracted, but it is not painful.
Nutritional assessments are performed by Dr. Fidler using TBM (“muscle testing”). She can test to see which foods will need your body’s needs.
