Stretch your mind…

A few years ago, travelling though Mexico, I met an extraordinary woman who taught me what it is to stretch your mind. Over a breakfast conversation in our beach restaurant on the Yukatan Peninsular, she told me about a motorbike accident she’d been involved in a few years earlier.

Addicted to recovery at ICAAD London

Book Publication: How I came to practise Cold Laser Therapy

Photochemical effects of cold laser

Laser energy is absorbed by metabolically active pigments of the mitochondria in various cutaneous and subcutaneous layers of the skin, which involves two enzymes of the oxidation chain - Cytochrome a/a3 and Flavoprotein.
