Professional massage therapists often use laser therapy as a supplement to other treatments such as physical massage / deep tissue massage.
The muscles in the human body make up approx. 40 percent of the total body weight. When the muscles are working, they release waste products in the form of lactic acid, carbon dioxide and urea. These waste products are naturally led away from the muscles by the blood and the lymphatic system.
If too much waste accumulates, for instance from sitting in front of the computer or exercising too hard, the muscles get tired, stiff and sore. Massage can help loosen and soften the muscles, stimulate the lymphatic system and get rid of the accumulated waste products.
Massage also improves blood circulation and thus the blood supply to the skin cells. Therefore, massage also has a good effect on the skin - it makes the skin look younger, healthier and fresher, and the skin has more color and glow.
Massage has a soothing, relaxing and stimulating effect because it also affects the body's nervous system.
The energy supply from laser therapy increases the blood flow in the area surrounding the muscles that you are treating. The removal of waste products is also stimulated by the laser, which makes it especially useful for the treatment of tight muscles. There are different types of massage, and with most of them, it can be very beneficial to use them in combination with the PowerLasers from PowerMedic Lasers, which are used by massage therapists in various countries. Massage therapists also use our lasers for treating themselves, for sore muscles and joints after a hard day at work.
In this video, Jamie Smith, Massage and Shiatsu Therapist at Zen Experience Massage & Wellness, explains how she uses the PowerLaser in her treatments.
