Cold Laser information:
Over 75 Trillion cells in a human body all need electrons to communicate with each other. Laser light delivers these required electrons and photons (little energy packets) directly to the cells and enhances both their ability to communicate with each other and their ability to produce ATP (Adenine Tri Phosphate). Increased energy to the cells increases cellular metabolism and the production of enzymes that reduce inflamation.
Cold lasers are extremely safe because the laser light/radiation has no effect on healthy cells. Yet, worldwide research, tests and studies have shown conclusively that cold laser light restores balance, energy and nutrient, oxygen permeability to sick cells. Thus resulting in excelerated healing and regeneration. This healing is additionally supported by the lasers ability to cause key enzymes and hormones to be secreted, which reduces or elliminates inflammation and pain.
The problem of present-day medicine is that over centuries Western Scientific thought has been concentrated around a chemical model of organization and function of molecules, tissues and organs in our body. However, this biochemical model should be expanded to deeper levels by including electromagnetic and quantum processes that play a crucial role in self-organization of living nature.

LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission by Radiation.
Light emitted from a laser diode is monochromatic (having only one wavelength), parrallel and coherent (having waves with similar direction, amplitude, and phase). These qualities make laser light much more valuable for therapeutic benefits.
Industry has been using laser diodes for years in such applications as bar code check outs, CD players, laser printers and pointers. The FDA has listed bio-stimulation lasers as non-significant risk (NSR) devices. The low level lasers shown on this website have received UL approval for safety. For more informationContact Us
Pain results from trauma, inflamation and/or cellular disruption, malfunction, or less than optimal cellular function. Healing and pain relief come with cellular normalization. Photons enable cells to perform optimally by stimulating them to initiate bio-chemical reactions, which produce enzymes and ATP (usable energy). Use of low level lasers (cold lasers or soft tissue lasers) enhances cellular function and it can also encourage the formation of collagen and cartilage in damaged joints and the repair of tendons and ligaments. Cold lasers and soft tissue lasers are gentle and non-heating to the tissues. They are configured with frequencies and power densities that are favourable to the cells and tissues of the body.
Low level laser therapy may be used any place there is acute or chronic pain or inflammation, and, low level laser therapy may be effective on any disease or disorder. Users have reported successes when using low level laser therapy on: Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Whiplash, Headaches, Back and Shoulder Pain, TMD/TMJ, Burns, Cuts, Sprains, Colds and Cold Sores, Sinusitis, and even Age Spots and wrinkles!
Low level lasers have been used world-wide for over 30 years.
We have seen low level lasers advertised for anywhere from $200 up to $20,000 each. Not all lasers are created equal. Cheap lasers usually incorporate only LED diodes, rather than true laser diodes. High quality laser diodes combined with LED diodes create the ultimate laser healing tools.
Not always. A VERY LOW price usually means that the product contains only cheap LED's, and no true laser DIODES- and while "LED only" products may provide some benefit, they are not nearly as good as a product with both LED's and a true laser diode in the 900 nm wavelength range. It is also not necessary to pay VERY HIGH PRICES (over $4,000) for an individual low level laser unit. Call our laser experts to explore your options. Phone toll free 1-888-824-7558.

In order to clarify how low-level laser therapy affects the body, it is necessary to review basic laser physics and developmental anatomy.
LASER means Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation and was first theorized by Einstein. In 1960 Miaman developed the first laser, a ruby laser. This was a tube laser with a metal chamber, which contained the element ruby. When an electrical current excites the enclosed element, the atoms give off photons or packets of light energy. The photons bounced off a solid mirror on one end of the tube and out holes in the mirror on the other end of the tube. This light beam is unlike regular light in that it is coherent i.e., the photons are well ordered and synchronized. Laser light is also monochromatic, meaning it is of one pure color.
Power density is a key to laser energy. Power Density (PD), or light concentration is measured in watts per centimeter squared (W/cm2). The problem with most DC battery driven lasers is that the battery bleeds off and does not maintain a standard PD, which negatively affects low-level laser therapy (LLLT) results. Recent developments in miniature computers have enabled the patenting of techniques that maintain a standard PD as well as to control energy frequency.
Wavelengths are measured in nanometers. The most beneficial wavelengths are in the visible and near infrared ranges. These ranges are very safe ranges, far away from the damaging ultraviolet, x-rays, gamma and cosmic rays. Although the longer waves such as microwaves and radio waves are usually considered safe, there are some that think they might be damaging to the very sensitive individual. All wavelengths used in low-level lasers are safely divided from these potentially damaging waves. Many people only think of lasers as cutting lasers. In order to cut with lasers, it is necessary to increase the PD from 300 to 10,000 W/cm2. Cold Lasers do not even have a warming affect unless they are operated above 5 W/cm2. We only offer cold lasers that produce no warming effect and are perfectly safe.
Low-level lasers today are manufactured using semi-conductors, which are computer-like chips grown from various pure elements or combinations thereof. Combining the elements of InGaAlP makes visible light in the range of 630 to 685 nm; combining GaAlAs produces light in the range of 780 to 870 nm; and, combining GaAs produces infrared laser diodes in the 900nm range.
The visible light ranges, while quite beneficial, are limited by their depth of penetration (usually 1 to 3 mm). The invisible or infrared light range penetrates much deeper. Research and clinical results documents that the infrared beam penetrates from 20 mm to 10 cm (1 to 4 inces). Excellent results have been achieved using the TerraQuant Laser combination of 905 nm Infrared Laser light with 600-740 nm, Red Light Radiation, and 860-960 nm Infrared Light Radiation. Over 10 years documented use in over 30 countries worldwide has proven that the TerraQuant Laser utilizes a safe and effective combination.
Low level lasers are used everywhere in our society, such as bar code check out, laser printers, compact disc players and for many medical procedures. In fact, without lasers, our society and economy as we see it today would collapse.
World-wide studies have shown that laser energy is accumulative as well as cascading and reduces pain and inflammation via:
1. Bio-stimulation and photo-stimulation.
2. Endogenous opiate production
3. Slowing sensory nerve production.
4. Restoring cellular resonant energy.
5. Stimulating the Na/K pump mechanism in the cell membrane.
6. Inhibiting bradykinin & leukotriene production.
Osmosis, a scientific fact taught in all grade and high school science classes, states that no nutrient can transfer across the depolarized membrane of an injured cell. One of the most important functions of low level laser therapy is to re-polarize sick and injured cellular membranes. This allows for essential nutrients to transfer from the blood into the cell. Research has shown that low level laser therapy can increase cellular ATP (body fuel) by as much as 150%.
Light Therapy is the ultimate form of Alternative Medicine Photobioactivation Light is the energy of life
Photobioactivation is a term applied to a light stimulus that initiates and/or accelerates a physiological response. Other stimuli used in medicine, for example, are temperature, ultrasound, electrical power, electromagnetic fields, etc. Pulsed light has been shown to have a harmonizing effect on the brain. It also delivers a stronger and deeper penetrating effect upon the cells.
Laser Therapy was discovered in the 1960's. Today, thousands of clinical evaluations and over 100 double blind studies confirm its effectiveness in:
Wound healing (formation of granulation tissue, epithelization, improved trophic condition)
Anti-inflammatory effect (enhancement of immune response)
Analgesia (pain relief)
Improvement of regenerative processes
These effects can be observed in rehabilitation and pain management centers, dermatology, neurology, surgery, rheumatology, traumatology, orthopedics, gynecology, urology, dental medicine and veterinary medicine.
Laser Therapy devices (Low Level Lasers up to approx. 500 mW (milliwatts) power output) do not have a thermal effect. This means they provoke no immediate visible skin reactions, no heating of tissue and virtually no sensations during therapy. Cold Laser Therapy is a soft laser therapy without side effects.
This is in contrast to the use of HOT LASERS for surgical applications. Hot lasers coagulate, vaporize and carbonize tissue with their high-energy rates (<3 to <50 Watts).
The laser energy is absorbed by metabolically active pigments of the mitochondria in various cutaneous and subcutaneous layers: here involved are the two enzymes of the oxidation chain, Cytochrome a/a3 and Flavoprotein with absorption maxims of wavelengths applied.
It is supposed that the changes in the stereochemical conformation induced by an electro magnetic field leads to an increase in activity and improves the concentration of ATP by up to 200%. In addition, an increase in oxygen and glucose metabolism is observed. The main effect is an optimized function of the Na-K pump at the cell membrane, an increased protein synthesis (prostaglandin, enzyme) and a significantly higher rate of mitosis.
Depending on the stimulated type of cells, the following cell physiological reactions are observed:
Enhanced fibroblast formation and collagen synthesis with improved tissue strength values
Smoothes skin and reduces wrinkles with increased microcirculation
Neovascularization of lymphatic and blood vessels as well as vasodilatation, improve microcirculation and lymphatic drainage (resorption of oedema)
Larger quantity of granulation tissue and accelerated epithelization
Increased activity of osteoblasts promote the formation of callus
Regulation of muscle tissue including myocardium
Enhancement of peripheral nerve re-growth
Prevention of central nerve degeneration and regeneration of peripheral axons after injury
Enhanced immune response and performance
Measurable changes in the potential of nerve cell membranes lead to its hyperpolarization as a good analgesic mechanism
Improved release reaction of ß-endorphines
Changes in transmitter concentration at the synapsis
Accumulation of 5-OH-indoleacetate (serotonin metabolite)
Relaxation of muscle induced by the neuromuscular unit (ATP increase)
Effect on the immune system (immune modulation)
Activation of proliferation of immune cells including macrophages
Immune suppressive effect by reduced antigen perception of the T-lymphocytes (increased acceptance of a transplant)
Optical window of the skin
The skin is a non-homogenous tissue and yet shows in its spectral analysis an optical window with an optimal transmission capability of light between >600 nm (visible red) and <1300 nm (infrared). Wavelengths (colors) outside of this optical window are mostly being absorbed before they reach deeper layers.
