Stress management encompasses a range of modalities designed to treat the physical and emotional toll of stress. The approaches we use include laser therapy, counseling, and education. Stress and health are closely linked. It is well known that stress, either intermittent or constant, can induce physical or mental disorders. Sudden disorders such as dizzy spells, anxiety, tension, sleeplessness, nervousness and muscle cramps can all result in chronic health problems. In the long run they may also affect our immune, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
HealthMedica’s Stress Reduction Program is an alternative way to approach the symptoms of stress. We work on the body to release its natural de-stressing chemicals, and we work on the mental aspect, by teaching you techniques to help you succeed outside of the office. The Stress Reduction Program is approximately a 6 weeks long (one visit a week). Each treatment consists of 60 min laser treatment session as well as a discussion on your progress to date.
The treatment is done in comfortable clothing for each session. This is a treatment is completed in a relaxed sitting position and uses Low Intense Laser Therapy on various acu-points on your body. Since the entire treatment is completed over the skin, the procedure is 100% noninvasive and pain free.
By using Laser Therapy to stimulate different acu-points on your hands, face, nose, feet, and ears, your body releases endorphins, and raise seratonin levels creating a feeling of well-being.
Endorphins are natural pain killers that hold back the sensation of stress or even pain. Seratonins are a feel good chemical of the body that helps with sleep, concentration, and mood. Patients report a feeling of well being with just one treatment. Each treatment is 60 mins in duration.
After the program is completed in full, we offer the Stress Reduction Treatments at a reduced rate, if at any time you start to feel stress coming back
It’s suggested to come in once a month or when you just need a relaxing break.
