Karen - Owner & Operator of ATP Laser Therapy

In 2011 whilst managing her own successful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy business she was introduced to Photobiomodulation (PBMT) also known as Low Level Laser Treatment (LLLT).

The concept of reducing inflammation swelling and pain and accelerating healing without the use of medication or sharp objects was compelling. Karen spent time researching this treatment accessing training in Australia where she became aware of the growing trend towards the use of this treatment in Canada, USA, UK and Australia.

In 2013 ATP Laser Therapy evolved. ATP is the abbreviated name for Adenosine triphosphate present in all forms of life and put simply it equates to cell energy which is restored during the process of the treatment.

LLLT is not new. Scientists have known for many years visible and near infrared light (NIR) has a beneficial effect on cells, however it is only in the past few years that the dose has been reduced to a level which provides sometimes instant results at a cellular level. The best analogy of LLLT is photosynthesis.
