Low Level Laser therapy is used in the effective  treatment of most skin conditions including acne, wrinkles and rosacea. Theoretically the light works by stimulating the skin’s energy making machine, known as the mitochondria. These stimulated mitochondria make older cells behave more like energetic youthful cells so that the skin rejuvenates , heals quicker and collagen renewal is enhanced. A Cold Laser Facial  treatment gives the skin the ability to rejuvenate.My patients over many years of practice have benefited from reducing wrinkles and fine lines, eczema and dermatitis, dark circles under the eyes,puffiness around the eyes ,fluid under the eyes, and chins.

This treatment can also be used to maintain vibrant skin and in the prevention of wrinkles by stimulating the cells and maintaining clear tissue.

The treatment commences with a thorough cleanse of the skin and a systematic approach is used where on alternate days I use either a Lymphatic drainage protocol where the skins lymphatic system is encouraged to eliminate wastes from the tissues and on the alternate day a vascular setting is used to bring about blood supply and collagen production.All treatments a procedure called Oshiros is used prior to commencing the facial treatment where the vertebral artery is stimulated to encourage oxygenation through out the body, the sub occipital( behind the neck) is stimulated to balance serotonin and dopamine production( the feel good chemicals in your body)then the lymphatics under your armpits( the (axillary lymph nodes) and subclavian areas are cleared to assist in the removal of wastes in the treatment to be permformed.The cold laser is applied to the entire face ,there is no heat as this is a cold laser and you will just feel the pads as they are put on the the specific areas of the skin.Most of my patients sleep through the entire procedure as it is highly relaxing.The treatment is completed by a gentle toner and moisturiser.

It’s a highly successful treatment for everyone even if you don’t have any skin concerns to maintain vibrant skin and as a preventative treatment.

What is Low Level laser therapy

Low Level laser therapy—also known as low-level light therapy—supplies energy to the body in the form of nonthermal light photons, hence the term “cold laser.” Low Level lasers use light waves in the near-infrared ranges that penetrate the deepest in the visible spectrum.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage

$117 55minute treatment

The Lymphatic system  assists good health by fighting bodily infections and removing toxins from the body. By carrying metabolic wastes, bacteria, toxins and excess water out of the body your overall health is improved . A broad network of vessels  transplant the fluid and connect the Lymph Nodes at various points such as groin, neck and armpits. Muscular movement is required to facilitate that process, thus our lymphatic system is less than optimal when there is  lack of movement and exercise, or a poor diet.

 

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a soft and effective massage which is extremely effective in accelerating the drainage of the lymph, which transports toxins away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to encourage lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses specific techniques including rhythmic circular movements and gentle pressure to stimulate lymph flow

Manual lymphatic drainage was developed by Danish Drs. Emil Vodder and EstridVodder in the 1930s for effective reduction of chronic sinusitis and other immune disorders. While working on the French Riviera treating patients with chronic colds, the Vodders were aware these patients all had swelling in the lymph nodes. In the 1930s, there was not a lot of information on the lymphatic system.In 1932  the Vodders began to study the lymph system, developing light, rhythmic hand movements to promote lymph movement. These basic strokes known as the “stationary circle”, “pump”, rotary” and “scoop” techniques are designed to manipulate lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels with the goal of increasing their activity and promote the flow of lymph.

These techniques are used in lymphodema treatments, specialised facials for acne, sinus conditions ,abdominal bloating, fluid retention,sub-par immunity,back aches,nervous tension and general wellbeing.

How Manual Lymphatic Drainage is different to traditional massage

Lower Intensity pressure is applied during manual lymph drainage. The lymphatic structures located in the subcutaneous tissues are manipulated by these techniques in order to achieve the desired goals by exerting the appropriate pressure in the working phase to stretch the subcutaneous tissues against the fascia (a structure separating the skin from the muscle layer) located underneath, but not to manipulate the underlying muscle tissue. The amount of pressure needed in MLD can be likened to the pressure applied stroking a newborn’s head.

During the resting phase of the treatment the stroke the pressure is released, which supports the absorption of lymph fluid into lymph vessels. By making the working phase with every stroke  last about one second and  repeating five to seven times an optimal result can be expected.

The overall goal of MLD in the treatment of lymphedema is to re-route the flow of stagnated lymphatic fluid around blocked areas into more centrally located healthy lymphatic vessels, which eventually drain into the venous system.

Why choose Lymphatic Drainage over other therapies?

Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that aids the body’s immune system and relaxes the nervous system.If  you are prone to and/or recovering from sore throats, colds, infections,low immunity levels, on-going tiredness, excess fluids, swollen node and also for the physically inactive the this is highly recommended for you.Those recovering from illness or surgery that has damaged or removed lymphatic nodules and led to oedema or swelling in the limbs will benefit greatly from this treatment.

Acute soft tissue injuries where swelling is evident and normal massage would not be allowed is a condition addressed perfectly by lymphatic drainage massage  helping to reduce swelling and aid the recovery process of injuries such as sprained ankles etc

Cold Laser Therapy

$117 55min treatment

The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Used successfully in arthritis, muscular aches and pains, tendon and ligament damage, sports injuries, back and neck complaints, pre and post sporting events to optimize performance.

Low Level Laser Therapy is a fast-growing technology used to treat a multitude of conditions that require stimulation of healing, relief of pain and inflammation, and restoration of function. Although the skin is the organ that is naturally exposed to light more than any other organ, it still responds well to wavelengths produced by the cold laser. The photons are absorbed by mitochondrial chromophores in skin cells. Consequently electron transport, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) nitric oxide release, blood flow, reactive oxygen species increase and diverse signaling pathways get activated. Stem cells can be activated allowing increased tissue repair and healing. Increase pigmentation by stimulating melanocyte proliferation and reduce depigmentation by inhibiting autoimmunity. Inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis and acne can also benefit.

What Is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low Level laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy, or laser therapy that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up.

Cold laser therapy is sometimes called low-level laser therapy (LLLT), low-power laser therapy (LPLT), or soft laser. You may also hear it referred to as therapeutic laser, biostimulation, or photobiomodulation.

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low-level light is applied directly to the problem area. The tissue then absorbs the light. In a basic sense, this leads to a biological or chemical reaction to red and near infrared light. Damaged cells have a physiological reaction that helps promote their regeneration.

Minor Injuries and Sprains

Low Level laser therapy is used  in the treatment of minor injuries and sprains. It is used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue, and its painless.

During the procedure, you’ll feel the device against your skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. Even better, it is completely non-invasive and painless.Doctors, dentists, physical therapists, and other medical professionals use cold laser therapy in a variety of ways. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation.

Minor Injuries and Sprains

Sports medicine and physical therapy practices use cold laser therapy in the treatment of minor injuries and sprains. It is used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue.

Inflammation

Dentists use cold lasers to treat inflamed tissues in the mouth and to heal ulcerations. Doctors also use it to treat inflammation caused by arthritis and other chronic autoimmune diseases.

Aches and Pains

Pain clinics use it to help people who suffer from chronic pain. Therapeutic massage therapy sometimes involves cold laser therapy.

Skin Rejuvenation

Low Level laser therapy is used to promote skin rejuvenation. Dermatologists use it to treat various skin problems such as ulcers, burns, rashes (dermatitis) and inflammation of the skin (edema),

Wound Healing

Low Level laser therapy is being used to treat hard-to-heal wounds as well as wounds related to diabetes.

The potential for new applications of cold laser therapy is virtually limitless. There is hope that it will someday be used to treat traumatic brain injury, degenerative nervous system diseases and spinal cord injury. Researchers are studying its use in Parkinson’s disease  and Alzheimer’s disease, among other illnesses.

What symptoms can cold laser therapy treat?

Because the machinery offers numerous settings and functions to treat a range of conditions the treatment is very versatile. It is able to treat the following conditions:

Skin Conditions:

Body blemish conditions and scarring

Low Level Laser Therapy provides effective treatment for conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, acne, allergic reactions (such as hives),bruising, red stretch marks and mature stretch marks. In addition, it’s an effective laser treatment for scars,facial scars, including new scars and keloid scaring. 

Dermatitis

Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a common condition affecting almost one third of the population during the various stages of their lives. It is an inflammation of the skin that is characterised by dry, scaly and sometimes cracked skin ,red rashes or bumps, dry, scaly and sometimes cracked skin, tenderness,swelling and burning, as well as extreme itching. This condition can be caused by both genetic and environmental factors. Irritants may include shampoos,soaps and detergents, chlorine,dish washing liquids, pets, dust mites, extreme weather changes,bacteria humidity levels, and even certain foods. Hormonal changes and stress may also contribute.

Hyperkeratosis

The thickening of the outer layer of the skin is the predominant characteristic of this condition. It is associated with the presence of unusually high levels of keratin (a form of protein) and is part of  what the skin does to defend against pressure, rubbing, and other forms of local irritation. Hyperkeratosis commonly causes whitish areas inside the mouth as well as warts and corns on the hands and feet and calluses,  resulting in high levels  of discomfort.

Folliculitis

Folliculitis is an infection and inflammation of the hair follicles. Being a common condition it can manifest anywhere on the skin, including stomach, arms, chest legs and back. The only places where folliculitis cannot occur are the soles of the feet and palms of the hands. Appearing as small red bumps with a white tip, folliculitis results from  follicles experiencing damage as a result of shaving ,blockage of the follicle,friction from clothing and certain hairstyles where the hair is pulled tightly and sits close to the scalp. The bacterium Staphylococcus infects these damaged follicles, resulting in the red dots.

Inflammatory conditions

These include inflamed muscles and joints ,arthritis, bunions, pinched nerves, and back and neck pain. Cold laser therapy works to maximise the production of serotonin,endogenous opioids, serotonin, nitric oxide and acetylcholine in the skin, which brings fuel molecules ,oxygen and other metabolites to injured tissues.  By stimulating the natural healing processes, inflammation is resolved. Using Cold Laser Therapy for back pain and other complaints can have a selective inhibitory effect on pain receptors,affecting a reversible neural blockade.

Reflexology with Cold Laser Therapy

Some of the benefits of reflexology include its ability to increase energy,stimulate nerve function, eliminate toxins, boost circulation, induce a deep state of relaxation, prevent migraines, stimulate the central nervous system, clean up urinary tract conditions and accelerate recovery after injury or surgery.Cold Laser Therapy used in conjunction with reflexology enhances the treatment as it works deep into the reflexes to release blockages within the body and accelerates the body’s natural healing ability. Customised patient allows us to identify treatment areas via the reflexology assessment which are then treated with the cold laser, massage and other modalities to bring about best results possible during your session.

Lymph Drainage Facial with Cold Laser Therapy

Beneficial flushing of toxins from the body

Relieves sinus pressure from allergies and colds by assisting in draining the sinuses,and therefore shortens the duration of a cold.

As fluid retention in the face is reduced there is a defining of the jaw and slimming of the entire face.

The decongestion of the skin assists in a healthier complexion benefitting acne and other skin conditions. The addition of the Cold Laser Therapy stimulates the collagen  and the skin is oxygenated to prevent the appearances of ageing. Other systems may be involved to complement the treatment in the presenting skin condition as Kylie works holistically to address other affected areas of the body eg laser and digestive massage to assist in alleviating the causes, not just treating the symptoms.

Decongestive Tissue Therapy

$117 55minute treatment

 

A specialised treatment incorporating the use of cold laser to clear the lymphatics and oxygenate the body, pneumatic leg pumps to reduce fluid in the legs and Manual Lymphatic drainage to target areas of concern. This extremely cleansing treatment is  particularly helpful if you would like an effective detox for your body.

The Lymphatic system  assists good health by fighting bodily infections and removing toxins from the body. By carrying metabolic wastes, bacteria, toxins and excess water out of the body your overall health is improved . A broad network of vessels  transplant the fluid and connect the Lymph Nodes at various points such as groin, neck and armpits. Muscular movement is required to activate and facilitate that process ,thus our lymphatic system is less than optimal when there is a sedentary lifestyle with subsequent lack of movement and exercise, insufficient water intake or a poor diet. Others may experience lymphatic oedema due to illness or surgery that damages or removes lymph nodules.

During a Decongestive Tissue Therapy, Kylie will use gentle, oil-free strokes over specific lymphatic channels to manually pump the fluid towards the central lymphatic organs, encouraging the body to increase circulation and cleanse the lymphatic fluid. The treatment is extremely gentle in parts, as the superficial lymphatic channels lie just below the skin and can be temporarily damaged with deeper pressure. The treatment specifically avoids deep work through muscular tissue, so if you are looking for relief from muscular tension as well as general lymphatic circulatory benefits, I recommend you try a Cold Laser treatment instead which Kylie incorporates deep massage on specific areas to enhance results.Please contact Kylie and she will suggest the most suitable treatment for you.

Lymphoedema Treatment

$117 55minute treatment

Manual Lymphatic Drainage applied in the treatment of Lymphoedema aims to redirect the movement of stagnated lymphatic fluid around blocked areas into healthy central located lymphatic vessels so they can drain into the venous system.

How Manual Lymphatic Drainage is different to traditional massage

Lower Intensity pressure is applied during manual lymph drainage. The lymphatic structures located in the subcutaneous tissues are manipulated by these techniques in order to achieve the desired goals by exerting the appropriate pressure in the working phase to stretch the subcutaneous tissues against the fascia (a structure separating the skin from the muscle layer) located underneath, but not to manipulate the underlying muscle tissue. The amount of pressure needed in MLD can be likened to the pressure applied stroking a newborn’s head.

The resting phase of the treatment the stroke the pressure is released, which supports the absorption of lymph fluid into lymph vessels. By making the working phase with every stroke  last about one second and  repeating five to seven times an optimal result can be expected.

You usually lie down to have massage. But if you have lymphoedema in your head and neck, you may be asked to sit up.

When you have the massage you feel a gentle pressure. It is not a deep massage. If it is too deep it won’t work because it flattens the small lymph vessels so that the fluid can’t drain. The movements are slow and rhythmic so the lymph vessels open up.

You may have MLD daily from Monday to Friday, or 3 times a week, for about 3 weeks. The number of treatments varies depending on the type of MLD you have and what you need. Kylie will also take into account the amount of swelling you have.

After the massage Kylie may bandage the area. They use a specialist bandaging technique called multi layered lymphoedema bandaging. If it is not possible to use bandages, you may wear a compression garment.

Kylie your lymphoedema specialist will regularly check how well your treatment is working. She will assess whether the tissues are softening and how much the swelling is going down. Once the swelling stops reducing, Kylie will advise you are measured for another compression garment to wear.

Remember that you are the person who will notice changes first and you need to talk to Kylie about how your treatment is working. Managing lymphoedema is very much about you and the Kylie working together

Kylie will instruct you how to perform self massage at home. This frees up space for the lymph fluid to drain into from the swollen area.

You massage twice a day, for about 20 minutes each time. Only apply light pressure, as Kylie your specialist has taught you.

 

You may not be able to have MLD  if you have any of the following

  • An infection or inflammation in the swollen area
  • A blood clot
  • Heart problems
  • Active cancer in the area

If you are uncertain about having MLD, talk to Kylie as she may need to contact your Doctor and receive written permission to treat if cancer has not been in remission for under 5 years.

Kylie also incorporates Cold Laser  Therapy to clear all lymphatic nodes required to be clear for the redirection of fluid from the affected area.Also the Cold laser is used to shower over the affected areas to stimulate the lymphatic vessels and decongest the tissues. Kylie also uses mobiderm bandaging to break down fibrosis in the tissues,lymphatic taping to assist in the redirection of fluid and pneumating leg and arms leaves to greater enhance the treatment where needed to further assist in fluid and volume reduction.

 

Lymphedema

Lymphedema is a condition of localised fluid retention and tissue swelling.This is caused by a compromised lymphatic system.

The Lymphatic system is a network of vessels and nodes throughout the body. It returns the fluid from the body tissues back to the bloodstream. From there it is recirculated back into the tissues.Tissues with Lymphedema are at risk of infection.

Lipedema (Painful Fat Syndrome)

Lipedema is a chronic disease, occurring mostly in females. It is characterised by bilateral symmetric enlargement of the limbs, secondary to the deposition of fat. The fatty tissue excess is extending from the hip region down to the ankles,  in 30% of the cases the upper extremities are affected as well. The cause is associated with extensive hormonal disorders or liver dysfunctions (if present in males) as well as with genetics. Lipedema can develop already during puberty, but the mean age of diagnosis is around 35. Other triggers can include pregnancy, peri-menopause or trauma (surgery).

Lipedema is not rare and commonly misdiagnosed as bilateral lymphedema, extreme cellulitis or morbid obesity. As a result of prolonged overstrain of the lymphatic system, lymphedema may develop secondary to lipedema (LIPO-LYMPHEDEMA).
