LOW LEVEL LASER
Low-level laser, also known as cold laser and photobiomodulation, is the application of red and infrared light in the 5mW (milliwatts) -500mW range. The laser device introduces photons into the body to repair cellular damage, increase blood flow and reduce inflammation in human tissue. Marcy White M.Ac., L.Ac. is one of the only acupuncturists using this technology in New England and has incorporated this therapy into her practice for the past 11 years.
Low-level laser is useful for a wide variety of health conditions including acute and chronic pain, stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive issues including memory problems. Please visit the low-level laser page on our site to see how we can help with Hashimoto's, neurological conditions and relief from pain and inflammation.
Marcy has trained in the use of low-level laser therapy with Dr. Margaret Naeser of BU School of Medicine. Dr. Naeser is currently heading research at the VA Hospital in Boston on the use of low-level laser therapy for chronic traumatic brain injury and Gulf War Syndrome. This research has expanded to both Spaulding Rehab and Boston Children's Hospital.
