How It Works
In order to understand how laser therapy successfully treats Stress and Anxiety, you first need to know what happens to your body when you experience these physical responses.
Stress is the reaction to a physical or emotional event (stressor), and Anxiety is the result of stress that is experienced after the stressor is gone. Though different from one another, Stress and Anxiety share many of the same physical symptoms and responses.
When we experience Stress and/or Anxiety, our bodies trigger a chain reaction which includes the release of a flood of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones enter the bloodstream and travel throughout the body increasing heart rate, blood pressure and even inflammation. When the stress response in the body is constantly activated by long-term or chronic Stress and/or Anxiety, the body and brain can no longer reset hormones and inflammatory chemicals to normal levels. This results in wear and tear on the immune and cardiovascular systems, and causes a vulnerability to many mental and physical health problems.
At RPM Laser Therapy we treat Stress and Anxiety on a physical level. Our laser therapists use light energy to stimulate various acupressure points on the body. This light energy triggers the release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopamine and serotonin. These neurotransmitters produce feelings of happiness, relaxation, pleasure and help stabilize mood. This counters the effects of stress on the body and helps reset your hormones and inflammatory chemicals back to normal levels. By resetting the chemical and hormonal responses associated with Stress and/or Anxiety, you are able to better handle daily stressors and triggers and regain control of your health and well-being.
Program Overview and Cost
- Initial Consultation: lasting approximately half an hour, the initial consultation provides you with the opportunity to meet with your laser therapist and discuss your experiences dealing with Stress and/or Anxiety. Your laser therapist will work with you to help identify your stressors and triggers and discuss treatment and program options specifically tailored to your individual needs.
At RPM Laser Therapy we do not proceed with treatment unless both you and your laser therapist agree that the Laser Stress & Anxiety Program is an appropriate treatment option for you. We want you to be successful and understand success is more likely to occur when you are willing, ready and able to receive treatment. The consultation is free of charge and there is no obligation to schedule treatment.
- Laser Stress & Anxiety Treatment: each treatment takes approximately one hour to complete and is typically completed at a rate of one session per week. During treatment, various acupressure points on your hands, ears, face, head, legs and feet are stimulated using laser acupuncture techniques. Light energy passes through the skin causing the release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopamine and serotonin. The treatment is completely pain free and non-invasive. In fact, most people report feelings of relaxation both during and immediately following treatment.
Treatment can be purchased either on a pay-as-you-go basis ($65.00 + HST/session) or as a package of 6 ($360.00 + HST) or 8 ($480.00 + HST) sessions. The predicted appropriate number of treatment sessions required will be discussed during your consultation and is determined on an individual basis.
