Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light. During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light causes a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.

Animal Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs

Many pet owners have never tried acupuncture themselves and worry if it’s safe, painful, or effective for their cat or dog. According to the Chi Institute, acupuncture has a myriad of benefits for your pet, some of which include pain relief, the promotion of tissue healing, regulation of gastrointestinal motility, immunoregulation, antifebrile effects, and reproductive and hormone regulation.
