A laser is a device that emits light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation. The term "laser" originated as an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation." In modern usage, the term "light" includes electromagnetic radiation of any frequency, not only visible light, hence the terms infrared laser, ultraviolet laser, X-ray laser, and so on.
A laser differs from other sources of light in that it emits light coherently. Spatial coherence allows a laser to be focused to a tight spot, enabling applications such as laser cutting and lithography. Spatial coherence also allows a laser beam to stay narrow over great distances (collimation), enabling applications such as laser pointers. Lasers can also have high temporal coherence, which allows them to emit light with a very narrow spectrum, i.e., they can emit a single color of light. Temporal coherence can be used to produce pulses of light as short as a femtosecond.

Laser Therapy has been researched and scientifically proven to be effective. Our laser therapy techniques provide soothing relief of chronic pain from arthritis, ligament sprains, nerve pain, radiating pain repetitive stress injuries and muscle pain.
Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and penetrates deep into the tissues to accelerate new cell growth and repairs tissue.
Laser therapy has been shown to reduce scar tissue, reduce swelling (edema) and can even cause new growth of capillaries, speeding up the healing process.
Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells, blocking pain and decreasing nerve sensitivity. The reduction of inflammation relieves pain. Chronic conditions damage nerve function, which results in numbness and impairments. Laser light speeds up the process of nerve cell repair, providing relief to people suffering from nerve pain as well as neuropathy. Muscle trigger points can be stimulated, providing relief from conditions such as fibromyalgia.
