Low Level Laser Therapy

Are you someone who has been suffering from addiction, and has tried and tested methods that don’t seem to work? You can try an alternative rehab technique: Low-Level Laser Therapy.

As the energy in your body can be destroyed through an addiction to alcohol or drugs, your core cells need to relieve and re-strengthened. These core cells – also known as mitochondria –  are sensitive and can get damaged over time.

Lower light therapy can help restore the cells by emitting lights into the tissues of your core cells. These lights then are transformed into energy – not only for the mitochondria throughout your body, but to accelerate healing energy. At Cassiobury Court Addiction Centre, we now offer Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) as part of our already extensive rehab program.

How Does Low-Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low-Level Laser Therapy is done by applying a cold laser on the area around your wrist. The laser operates in a wavelength that is non-thermal, which means there is no risk of burning. It is a safe treatment option, that has been proven effective by various researchers and studies around the world.

Low-Level Laser Therapy: Boosting Energy and Mental Wellbeing to Battle Your Addiction

As a rule of thumb, you can assume that your mental and physical well-being are interlinked. A lack of energy could be due to a physical issue, or your mental wellbeing causing physical exhaustion. LLLT can be useful in both cases. As the lasers transmit healing responses through your body, the effect of the lasers can lead to:

  • Improved fitness levels
  • Healthier sleeping patterns
  • Improved mood
  • Lower stress due to a positive effect on your nervous system

These mental well-being related improvements can cause a domino effect, and help you battle mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and addiction.

To add to that, laser therapy for addiction will be able to make your rehab experience a lot easier, and therefore more effective. As you start the session, there will be a release of endorphins in your body – you’ll feel calm and relaxed already. To add to that, the endorphins will also ease your dependence. You will feel a lot less cramps, suffer from less nausea, insomnia and restlessness.

Low-Level Laser Therapy: Physical Health

LLLT can also improve your physical wellbeing, as the improving mitochondria cells are the driving part of your immune system. For many addicts, your immune system could have been damaged by a long-standing addiction to heroin and alcohol for example.

Also, the blood vessels tend to expand through LLLT, which can reduce swelling throughout your body and can also help form a barrier for scar tissues. Low-level laser therapy is often used for sporting injuries –  as it speeds up the natural healing process.  Low-Level Laser Therapy can help people with other complications arising from addiction such as:
