How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Treat Pain?

Pain is a sign that your body is under stress. Whether the result of an injury or a symptom of an underlying condition, it can affect your overall health and wellbeing and shouldn’t be ignored – after all, it’s your body’s way of telling you something is not right. 

If you have been experiencing acute pain in your muscles or other soft tissues, or are suffering from chronic pain, you may have already sought relief using medications or invasive procedures that can often be costly or involve long periods of recovery or side effects. Low Level Laser Therapy is an innovative new therapy that, unlike other treatment options, is completely non-invasive, free from side effects, and actually promotes your body to heal itself at the cellular level. 

By treating the underlying conditions that cause pain and jumpstarting your cells into healing themselves, Low Level Laser can effectively treat a wide range of conditions including (but certainly not limited to) musculoskeletal injuries, degenerative diseases, arthritis, joint replacement rehabilitation, back pain, ankle, knee, hip pain, whiplash and certain dermatological conditions.

In as little as one to two treatments, you may already start to see a reduction in pain and swelling and will be on your way to better health and well-being.  

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?


The term “cold laser” is often used as it does not cause heating or damage to living tissue; the laser works by delivering light energy (photons) directly to the cells. 

When you are experiencing pain from an injury or from a chronic pain disorder, your cells are often damaged due to oxidative stress. As cells become injured, they release free radicals that are highly damaging to themselves and their neighboring cells. These free radicals increase the oxidative stress of the cell, and sometimes can cause the damage to be irreparable. 

With Low Level Laser Therapy, your therapist can reverse oxidative stress and help rebuild your cellular health. When the laser is applied to the skin, the light energy reaches the damaged cells under the skin’s surface, stimulating healing as the cells absorb the light energy and convert it into ATP (cellular energy). As the damaged cells absorb more energy, they can overcome their oxidative stress and revert to their healthy state. 

Over time, the cells in the injured area can be completely restored and healthy. This allows your body to begin to heal itself from the inside out and to begin to feel better with a reduction in pain. There are no medications, surgeries or long recovery periods involved – the treatment can be completed right in your therapist’s office and can help you to begin overcoming your pain within a few short and quick treatments.

Soothing sounds from Tibetan chants to Beethoven symphonies are being given scientific credit for preventing colds, easing labour pains and even boosting anti-ageing hormones. One recent study found that surgery patients who listen to comforting music recovered more quickly and felt less pain than those who did not.

The pure tones generated by the Carillon take healing to a whole new level. The International Journal of Arts Medicine reports that infants in intensive care go home three days sooner, eat better and gain more weight if the staff talk and sing to them.

More doctors are seeing a connection between harmonious sound and health.

Says Mitchell L. Gaynor, Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at New York Hospital's cancer-prevention centre. "If we're around very harmonious people and harmonious vibrations and harmonious sounds, we begin to feel better.  I've never found anything more powerful than sound and voice and music to begin to heal and transform every aspect of people's lives.  It can really change people's lives, which is why we use Don Tolman's Carillon at Cornell Medical as well."

By toning or humming with an intention to the tune of the Carillon, the healing effects can be powerful in: 

  • Breaking up physical, mental and emotional blockages in the body;
  • Entering a heightened state of consciousness and awareness;
  • Promoting the natural healing and restorative powers of the body;
  • Meditation and clearing the mind of toxic thoughts and emotions. 

What is Vibration/Sound Therapy?

Vibration/Sound Therapy is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterized by blockage in the channels on some level. When there is a blockage, the organ or system in question stops vibrating at a healthy frequency and thus it results in some kind of illness. Through sound and light, one can break up, dissolve and release these blockages that initiate in our light or etheric body.

Do the chakras, bones and organs in the body possess a different resonant frequency?

Yes, the chakras, bones, and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency.

What happens when an organ or part of the body is non-harmonious?

When an organ or part of the body is vibrating out of tune or non-harmoniously, it is called a “dis-ease.” or disease. A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell, each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole human body.

Is Vibration/Sound Therapy used in the Medical Field?

Yes. Ultrasound has been used extensively in medicine for decades as a diagnostic tool that assists with therapeutic intervention. Ultrasound works by bouncing sound waves off of body parts to create images. It is used to exam organs in the body, checks for blood flow, and detects disease. Urologists use vibrational energy to break up stones in the urinary tract. Lasers, which are amplified light energy, are used frequently in surgery.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanners (M.R.I.) are used by Radiologists. They are powerful diagnostic tools that shift the electrons in the cells. They work by detecting radio frequency signals emitted by excited Hydrogen atoms using energy from an oscillating magnetic field applied at the appropriate resonant frequency.

At the Perth Photo-Medical Centre we use the White Stone Carillon Vibrational Healing Bowl from Don Tolman International.

Made from pure, quartz crystal and crafted to specific harmonic measures, the white stone carillon vibrational healing bowl is a modern rediscovery of an ageless wisdom practised by cultures who understood the power of vibrational healing.

Vibrational healing has long been appreciated for its calming effect, but new research shows it also may have the power to also restore health created by chaos (toxicities and deficiencies) in the body.

The Carillon Bowl is a large quartz crystal crucible based on an original artefact that was found in Egypt.  It is said that this original bowl was used in sacred chambers by priests in order to tune into other states of consciousness, as well as for healing purposes.

This same bowl has now been recreated from 100% pure Grade-A Quartz Crystal. It is set in the "Key of David" (F-sharp/G-Flat) and is used to create balance in the mind and body. The special vibrations of the bowl, combined with the power of your own voice, can be used to promote healing within your mind and body to bring about new states of consciousness, transforming you physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Our Carillon was imported directly from the USA and produced according to Don Tolman's specific instructions.

Although there may be similar products available in the marketplace, we assure you they are NOT the same and NOT made to the exact measures that were anciently used to achieve healing and effective vibrational sound therapy.
