Painless low-level laser therapy applied to specific acupuncture points on the ear, arm and leg can dramatically reduce or alleviate stress by stimulating the body’s natural feel-good neurochemicals. The procedure is completely safe and pain-free. Many patients experience a sense of deep relaxation during and after the treatment.
After your treatment, we will provide you with audio CDs with specific relaxation and stress reduction exercises to listen to when you go home.
Although there are many different symptoms associated with anxiety, often the root cause is an inefficiency in the back of the brain. This inefficiency results in the client not being able to find “peace in their head”. Sometimes the specific symptoms are also associated with other areas of brain inefficiency such as the frontal cortex. Neurotherapy is a very effective treatment for the anxiety disorders because it corrects the root causes in the brain. In some cases behavioral treatment is also required to correct the habit patterns that have developed in response to the anxiety. Such conditions as nail-biting, eating disorders and phobias respond well to this combination of neurotherapy and behavior therapy.
Exposure to traumatic conditions such as interpersonal violence, automobile accidents, or natural catastrophes can have a disabling effect on many people. The response to exposure to these stressful conditions is associated with the person’s stress tolerance, a condition directly related to the anxiety disorders. The same conditions that make a person prone to anxiety symptoms are those that make a person vulnerable to being disabled by traumatic stress. The treatment of traumatic stress likewise is most efficient when neurotherapy is combined with behavior and cognitive therapies.

"After years of suffering the effects of chronic stress and anxiety, I found myself exhausted and in a constant state of panic. My first treatment at HealthPoint Laser offered such a sense of calm and well-being—the sensation of "relaxation" is inexplicable—I was amazed by the results. With the help of HealthPoint, I am now able to effectively manage everyday stresses and find myself sleeping better, waking rested and have so much more energy during the day. I finally feel like I am getting my life back. Thanks Scott!"
