When learning about laser technology, there are some basic concepts that should be
understood. A laser is basically a beam of light that emits photon energy. When the
light is focused properly, all the photons are traveling in the same direction and
at the same wavelength; this is also known as coherent light. When light is not focused,
it scatters in all directions and becomes diffused. This is called non-coherent light.
Beams of Light
We use lasers to listen to our favorite music CD’s, to measure distances, temperature,
and speed. Even though Einstein was the first to talk about the idea of light energy,
our bodies have been using the same kind of energy to communicate since man was created.
As documented in the James L. Oschman’s book “Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis”,
cells communicate to one another through coherent light
Low Level Lasers
Low level lasers are different than other more publicized heat lasers that are used
in many surgical procedures to cut, and cauterize tissue. Low level lasers do not
have a thermal effect and are used to stimulate, rather than destroy tissue. These
types of lasers have been in use for over 25 years and there has yet to be one recorded
side effect. Low level laser studies have been done and have proven to be effective
in many cases, but it was the ERCHONIA laser that made history in the world to gain
FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic neck and shoulder pain. This was
proven through two double blind studies to prove the efficiency of the ERCHONIA laser
on chronic pain.
How it Works
ERCHONIA lasers emit visible coherent light that is applied to the affected area.
Bundles of light energy pass through the dermal layers, and are received within the
cell membrane by specific energy photo acceptors. The increase in intra-cellular
energy results in altered cell membrane permeability, and physiological changes occur
through an enzyme cascade to affect several biological processes.
