The Synergistic Effect of Laser Therapy with Massage Therapy in Improving Patient Outcomes – Tips and Tricks on Making it Work


Laser therapy is a synergistic adjunct to massage therapy and upholds the principles of massage by optimizing the healing mechanism in a non-invasive and pharmaceutical free method. Laser therapy can be effectively used concurrently in a massage session to accelerate healing, decrease pain and resolve inflammation quickly. Catherine will discuss the initial obstacles she overcame while introducing laser therapy into her thriving massage practice and highlight some of the traditional and unique clinical conditions that have responded well to laser therapy.
Upcoming Article: Catherine’s article entitled Laser Therapy in the Massage Practice: Limitless Benefits to Patients and Practitioners will be featured in the summer issue of Massage Therapy Canada.
