Our upcoming workshops...

Dr. Connie's Stress Relief Workshop emphasizes the physical (hormonal balance, exercise and nutrition). This follow-up workshop with Lynn Chapman, health educator and life coach, provides additional practical tips and techniques for taming your stress, and the focus will be on the mental and emotional side of the stress.

I have know Lynn for many years and highly recommend her work. She coaches people locally and nationally--either in-person, or via phone or Skype--and she is a joy to work with. Please join us for a fun and informative hour.

Laser therapy prevents scar tissue

Scars, including hypertrophic and keloidal-type scars, may occur after burns, trauma, or surgery. At the present time there are no noninvasive modalities to treat these painful, sometimes disfiguring conditions.

A study done at the University of California Davis Dept. of Dermatology found that LLLT can effectively inhibit scar formation. The physicians commented that they felt the LLLT could be a helpful modality for the prevention of scarring. In my work with surgeons I have spoken to a number of them who have commented on how LLLT can produce dramatically less scarring after surgery

Laser therapy improves athletic performance in seniors

Low level laser (LLLT) has demonstrated positive results in reducing fatigue during physical exercise. Twenty-four seniors were tested using an 808 nm laser over the quadriceps muscle. After active LLLT, subjects demonstrated significantly higher number of repetitions compared to controls. In this study, LLLT has now been shown in multiple studies to increase muscle and athletic performance. Lasers Med Sci. 2013 Jan 8.
