Laser Therapy is known for its ability to improve the healing process. Through photobiostimulation, photons are utilized to provide energy to cells. This elicits a cascade of positive cellular affects. The end results include improved healing of injured tissues including tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Reduces pain by activating lymphatic drainage to remove waste including damaged cells; promoting prostaglandin inactivation directly responsible for reducing pain associated with inflammation; increasing blood flow to provide nutrients. Helps stimulate cellular activity for appropriate phagocytosis. This reduces excess scar tissue formation and optimizes soft tissue integrity. In conjunction, laser increases metabolic activity by stimulating enzyme activity and promoting blood flow to an area. With blood flow the area receives increased oxygen and nutrients to aide in the healing process. Among the many positive effects on cellular activity, laser helps stimulate fibroblast development. Fibroblasts build collagen, which is one of the main components of soft tissues and essential for appropriate soft tissue healing.
Spinal decompression is a natural alternative to invasive back surgery and one that uses chiropractic adjustments and decompression therapy to release pressure off of the nervous system. Due to time and the natural aging process, your spine becomes compressed. Bad ergonomics at work or poor posture can exacerbate spinal compression, as can degenerative spinal conditions. Once the pressure has been released from the nervous system, it can be maintained with chiropractic adjustments and decompression tune-ups.
Mindfulness meditation is a technique that elicits the relaxation response in the body. Current and emerging science reveals the practice of meditation improves the function of the mind similar to exercise improving the function of the body. Mindfulness meditation is a journey that connects the mind, body and spirit. Recent studies demonstrate the following responses to mindfulness meditation: reduces pain, boosts immune function, lowers blood pressure, reduces heart risk, increase gray matter, cultivates willpower, boosts cognitive function, builds self knowledge, improves relationships, increases compassion, improves empathy, improves depression, physically changes the brain, reduces loneliness, cuts emotional reactivity, fosters a healthy body image, eases stress and anxiety and improves sleep. Learning this important practice can change your life. At the Advanced Wellness Center we offer the opportunity to learn the basics of mindfulness meditation in a group setting with our five class series “Introduction to mindfulness”. In addition, one on one sessions with our mindfulness coach are also available for those seeking to address individual issues. Discover your untapped potential with mindfulness meditation.
