Low Level Laser Therapy

Often called “cold laser”, low level laser therapy is a type of therapy that uses laser (LED light) to alleviate pain and help the body tissue heal. Low level laser therapy focuses on treating the pain, not just masking it or simply making it bearable. This procedure reduces inflammation and is non-invasive, which means patients experience few, if any, side effects.

Eastern Therapies is proud to offer low level laser therapy at our Bondi Junction clinic, aiding our clients in their recovery from pain. Low level laser therapy has now been studied and implemented for over 30 years, with clinical trials and reports demonstrating its efficacy. Some complaints that low level laser therapy may be able to treat include:

Our laser can assist you to quit smoking

Our quit smoking therapy uses low level light laser equipment which targets the same points as acupuncture does, but without the needles.   Focusing the laser beam on these energy points stimulates the nerve endings and causes your body to release endorphins which help to reduce nicotine craving and withdrawal symptoms.

Endorphins are the natural chemicals in your body that have a calming, relaxing effect. Current medical thinking is that smokers have higher levels of endorphins than non-smokers, which they stimulate artificially by tobacco smoke. When you stop smoking, the sudden drop in endorphin levels leads to withdrawal symptoms and physical cravings. Laser therapy helps address this by generating replacement endorphins. Some laser therapy clients may even report a feeling of euphoria following a smoking cessation treatment with the laser.

Eastern Therapies at Bondi Junction

Eastern Therapies take an integrated approach to healthcare, meaning your low level light therapy will likely not be conducted in isolation. For example, cold laser therapy can actually be used to stimulate acupoints in the same way needles do. This makes it a fantastic way for first-timers to approach acupuncture. This can benefit children and sensitive adults.
