Cold Laser/Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Light therapy uses a specific wavelength from a laser to elicit localized tissue responses.  The laser ‘pulses’ light which stimulates the inner membranes of the mitochondria of the cell (“battery” of a cell). This, in turn, excites the ATP of the cell (“powerhouse” of the cell). This activity promotes new cell growth and healthy tissue reparation.

Cold laser increases blood flow and collagen in the affected regions and is used to rebuild nerve tissue damaged by surgery or trauma, flush necrotic muscle tissue and fascia from the body, stimulate follicle growth, and rebuild connective tissue and dispel scar tissue.

Sole Practitioner of TCM in NYC Using Cold Laser Therapy

I am the only practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in NYC who incorporates Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) into treatments when appropriate.  LLLT (also referred to as Light Therapy or Cold Laser) is a safe, non-invasive, and effective method to treat a myriad of health conditions that include vertigo, infertility, male and female pelvic floor conditions (burning urination, erectile dysfunction, chronic prostatitis, painful sex, painful ejaculation) internal and external scar tissue, and muscle & joint pain, to name a few.
