“Pain is associated with a wide range of injury and disease, and is sometimes the disease itself. Some conditions may have pain and other symptoms coming from an unknown cause, such as pain after surgery or pain from a malignancy. In other conditions, pain constitutes the primary problem, such as nerve pain or headaches.
Millions of people suffer from acute or chronic pain every year. The effects of this pain can impact work productivity and quality of life, and place an emotional and financial burden on patients and their families. The costs of unrelieved pain can result in longer hospital stays, increased rates of re-hospitalization, increased outpatient visits, and decreased ability to function leading to lost income. Sometimes, a patient's unrelieved chronic pain problems can result in an inability to work and maintain health insurance.
Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. The chart below depicts the number of chronic pain sufferers compared to other major health conditions.”

What we offer
Modern medical technology has revolutionized the ability to help individuals heal even in when suffering from chronic pain and inflammation. This technology that could make an enormous positive impact on your quality of life. It's called Class 4 K-Laser Therapy.
Not all medical lasers are used as cutting and cauterizing tools, although that technology has certainly proved invaluable in various forms of surgery. Different frequencies of light can have different effects on human tissue. Therapeutic lasers pass through the skin without doing any damage at all. Once it penetrates to the underlying tissue, it actually has the opposite effect where it helps the body heal itself more efficiently. The most dramatic way it achieves this is through a process called photo-biostimulation. The light waves cue the cells to increase their production of ATP, or adenosine triphosphate. This substance is the primary energy source used by all cells for the many tasks they must perform, including repairs and regeneration of tissue. This makes laser therapy an invaluable tool for accelerate the healing process for injuries or post-operative recovery.
Laser therapy is also highly useful for reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation. It does this by dilating blood vessels in the part of the body being treated. The resulting boost in circulation carries more oxygen and other nutrients to cells that require it but it also allows tissues to expel inflammatory toxins and excess fluids. For this reason, laser therapy is extremely popular for people seeking drug-free pain relief from soft tissues or injuries, chronic inflammatory conditions such as osteooarthritis, or symptoms associated with neuropathy or fibromyalgia.
Today's medical frontiers are introducing more advanced and amazing healing techniques every day. You might be surprised, then, to learn that one of the "cutting-edge" healing modalities we favor is actually thousands of years old. Acupuncture holds just as much appeal today when it comes to relieving pain and other disease symptoms, accelerating the healing process, and enhancing wellness.
The strategic insertion of tiny needles at precise points on the body could correct the flow of energy and restore the patient to health. These practices might not sound terribly scientific until you take into account how the body actually works. Researchers have observed that acupuncture needles appear to stimulate the release of endorphins and opioids, biochemical painkilling substances produced naturally by the body. It also appears that the insertion of the needles in or near neural structures stimulates impulses that bock the body's "pain gates" to a specific area. When you substitute the concept of nerves and nerve signals for chi and meridians, you can see why modern practitioners view acupuncture as a legitimate medical tool.
