Laser Therapy

What you need to know about Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).

Neurochemicals and neurotransmitters

Neurochemicals: also referred to as neurotransmitters, have the role of regulating and initiating many tasks within the human brain and body. Neurochemicals:

  • Regulate mood, appetite, and sleep
  • Stimulate emotional responses
  • Initiates pleasure through the brains reward centre
  • Initiates sex drive

Some examples of neurochemicals are:

  • Norepinephrine
  • Serotonin
  • Dopamine
  • Endorphins
  • Epinephrine

Neurochemicals are crucial for human survival. When our neurochemical levels are too high or too low it can cause serious physical, mental, and emotional complications. LLLT has the potential to retrain your brain to regulate normal amounts of neurochemicals, alleviating the negative physical effects caused by substance abuse, injury, stress and anxiety and/or weight gain.
