Book Publication: How I came to practise Cold Laser Therapy

Alongside my book launch on the subject of recovery from addiction I wanted to share how I came to practise Cold Laser Therapy. It was always a natural inclination to want to relieve suffering.

Healthy radiant skin – inside and out…

Healthy radiant skin - inside and out... Why does a cold laser treatment work so well on skin? I really do see the best results when working on this fascinating organ - the skin. Our skin in a visual representation of what is happening within our bodies, beneath the surface. Boosting the lymphatic system and clearing [...]

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.

The journey begins…

It all started when my dog Lottie fell ill. First she couldn't eat or drink without vomiting. Then she completely lost her balance and developed a neurological disorder that indicated anything as serious as a brain tumour. She lost weight, went on a drip for days and lost all co-ordination and ability to walk. Yet [...]
