About Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)


LLLT, also known as Photobiomodulation or Cold Laser Therapy (CLT), is the application of low power laser beams to enhance cellular functions. When laser light irradiates and penetrates the skin surface, light is absorbed by damaged cells, triggering a series of physiological changes. These are found to modulate cellular metabolism, which stimulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, accelerate the tissue healing processes and achieve pain relief.

Since Professor Mester discovered the therapeutic properties of laser light in 1967, there have been extensive studies exploring the benefits, techniques and optimal usage of low level laser therapy in treating various conditions. To date, about 4000 published research articles are archived in the prestigious PubMed library; a selection of research paper can be found in our Further Reading section.

LLLT is proven to be effective for (but not limited to): Musculoskeletal pain (acute and chronic) Neuropathic pain | Migraine and other headaches | Sports injury and fatigue | Wound healing | Depressed mood and anxiety. Promising in reducing symptoms or risks of: Tinnitus Cardiovascular diseases | Diabetes | Degenerative conditions | Allergic diseases | Inflammatory bowel disease | Oral mucositis .

Current users of LLLT include many prominent organisations around the world, all of whom recognise the benefits of LLLT and its enormous potential. These include top researching institutions, high performance sports teams and space exploration programs.
