The Cutting Edge MLS Laser is one of the most technologically advanced therapeutic Class IV lasers approved by the FDA. The MLS Laser is capable of delivering over 100 times more healing energy than the most powerful devices of the previous generations. More power means shorter treatment times, less therapy needed and immediate relief from pain. The MLS Laser floods the tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the area in pain. This increases the body's production of ATP, expediating the healing process to reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue. The MLS Laser Therapy effectively treats:
•Tendon and ligament injuries
•Soft tissue injuries
•Muscle strains and tears
•Sore muscles and joints
•Degenerative joint conditions
•Chronic non-healing wounds
•General pain
•Pre and post-surgical treatment
•Anti-inflammation applications
•Arthritis
•Sports injuries such as sprains and strains
•Occupational injuries
•Tendonitis
•Wounds such as bruising
Laser Therapeudic Effects: During each painless treatment, the laser energy increases circulation by drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. These combine to create an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured areas return to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy: During laser treatment, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases in the cell. This improves the transportation of nutrients across the cell membrane which initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) thus leading to many benefits increasing cellular function and health.

The Light

...Light Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? I wait like a lion waits for a prey to eat, when you look in my direction my feelings reach a peak. I sit in silence sadly staring waiting to see your face. SIGH, I wish you weren't such perfection. We fight and argue. I sit like a statue as you speak harsh words, you are a fire breathing dragon and I am a donkey. I act like I dont care and POOF! your gone, im now heartbroken singing my sad somber song. Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? You come right back, you make me laugh, you make me cry, I wish this was as easy as pie. Your like a mathematical equation, I want to figure you out, but your complication doesn't let me have concentration. A roller coaster is what our ''relationship'' is. Our love speaks a language that most people don't understand, it has its flaws, most beautiful things do, I wouldn't kick our relationship like a old pair of shoes for something new. Is this the light at the end of the tunnel? Waiting for you is similair to sleeping for 1,000 years expecting to not drool when you realize its time to wake up. My feelings are deeper then the ocean although, they cause various fights that make you want to leave and take a hike. When we agree, which is almost never I can't help but to hope that its not a joke. We agree to disagree. You are the barking dog and I am the aggrevating flea. I dislike when your around but, I can't help to miss you when I'm...

Star Light

...“Star Light, Star Bright, Where are you now?” As I was reading the article, I was surprised to know that there was such thing as “light pollution”. It was rare for me to hear this kind of pollution. The cause of this kind of pollution is too much light directed toward the sky. I even wonder at times when I look up unto the skies and see no stars at all. I didn’t realize that this was because of light pollution. It was because of this article that I’ve learned a lot about light pollution. The presence of light pollution makes it impossible for us to see the stars, because there are way too many artificial lights that brighten up the night. Few of the causes of light pollution are: bright lights from homes and buildings, light from vehicles, street light that have a shape of a cylinder, and billboards lit form the bottom. Starless nights may not be a big problem for us, ordinary people, but for astronomers who study the heavenly bodies, this is already a huge problem. Even with the use of telescopes, the glare of the light may still affect their observations which results into inaccurate results. Astronomers are not the only ones affected by this pollution. Even the nocturnal animals are affected too. Light pollution could ruin their natural habitat and overall behavior. There are ways to reduce the effect of light pollution, and this is through the use of: Light with timers, Motion-sensor lighting, and......

Organizational Pattern: Monroe’s Motivated sequence Introduction I. (Attention) Let me tell you a story about a 20 year old man. After he graduated high school at the age of 17 he was accepted to his dream university. In order to attend it he had to take on two jobs to pay his tuition and to help support his underprivileged family. Along the way this young man unexpectedly becomes a proud father of a beautiful baby boy. At the age of 20 this young man walks into the emergency department at my job complaining about a mild stomach ache he had for about 1 week. We routinely asses his medical history and perform necessary examinations, we send him on his way with some pain medication and tell him we will call him when the results are in.

...emphasis on sexual abuse and victims of sexual abuse. The residential treatment facility, Beacon Light, was home to all three boys at various times in their teenage years. While in placement, Brian benefitted from the increased structure, nurturing and educated oversight. After spending a year at Beacon light, Brian was allowed to live with his grandparents for 6 months. While participating in an aftercare program, Brian was caught stealing money from a woman’s purse at the local YMCA. This resulted in his being placed at another residential facility, Pathways in Oil City, Pennsylvania. Brian’s brothers also had numerous incidences in their history of stealing and destroying property in the community. In a study that compared sexually victimized and non-sexually victimized adolescent males the results indicate that the sexually victimized sexual abusers have more severe developmental antecedents (trauma, family characteristics, early exposure to pornography and personality) (Burton Duty and Leibowitz 2011). Brian’s case history is replete with many examples of the boys being exposed to pornography and other inappropriate events when living with their stepfather. The history of childhood sexual victimization may be only one of a plethora of events creating these differences. The two brothers were also eventually transferred to the same RTF, Pathways after their time at Beacon Light. One of Brian’s brothers is currently living with their grandparents. Brian’s oldest brother is......

...March 2011 Lighting: The Way it Affects a Movie Set Lights! Lights! And More Lights! While on a movie set for any show, cinematographers are artists that paint motion pictures with light (Murphy 1). They must know that lighting is their main concern while in production. No matter if there is too much or too little lighting, lighting must always be controlled (Morales). In order to solve the problem of faulty lighting, cinematographers should know when lights should be used, where it should be placed, and who it should be focused on; therefore, they must communicate with the director and the lighting engineer at all times because the lighting sets the mood for the image (Morales). There are many techniques that a cinematographer works with and people wonder how. An example is that most people wonder how cinematographers control their lighting while indoors when the subject is placed by a window. If subject is in front of a window and there is too much sunlight, take some aluminum foil wrapped around a piece of cardboard and turn it towards the subject so the light will reflect on the person face which will act as a key or filled light. If there is another light around, put it a little closer to subject and the reflected light will act as the backlight to make it seem as three-point lighting (“Lighting Tricks and Solutions”). The need for this type of lighting is to make the subject’s face is clear and visible. If the light from the window is shinning on the subject too......

...affected by variables. There are three kinds of variables in an experiment: independent, dependent, and controlled. The independent variable is the variable you purposely manipulate. The dependent variable is the variable that is being observed, which changes in response to the independent variable. Variables that are not changed are called controlled variables. When conducting an experiment, it must be a controlled experiment. That is, you must compare an "experimental or treatment group" with a "control group." The two groups are exactly the same except for the one variable being tested. For example, in your experiment on dissolved oxygen and trout, you may select to use two aquariums and 5 juvenile rainbow trout. The aquarium, food, light source, location of the aquarium, ambient temperature, water temperature, trout stock, trout gender, and age of trout all have to be exactly the same. However, the water in one aquarium has a dissolved oxygen level of 3 mg/l and the other has a "normal" level. The aquarium with "normal" dissolved oxygen is called the control and the aquarium with the lowered dissolved oxygen is called the treatment. The control group acts as a reference point to compare with the treatment group. If the test is properly designed and constructed, any difference between the two groups can only be due to the one experimental factor tested. The challenge is to control for variables that may affect (confound) your results. A confounding variable is an......

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person Centered Therapy

...Applying an Integrated Approach to a Case Example: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person Centered Therapy Applying an Intergraded Approach to a Case Example: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person Centered Therapy Theory plays an important role in the process and outcome of therapy. For this reason, it is a topic that is examined in depth in human service education programs and research. Theory is used to explain client problems and to dictate what is done in the counseling process (Hackney, 1992). Theory can be used to define “the nature of the relationship between the counselor and client, to conceptualize the nature of the presenting problem(s), and to define the resulting counseling goals or desired outcomes” (p.2). In the past, much focus has been paid on delineating and accentuating the differences between the many theories of therapy (Sprenkle, 2003, p. 93). Today, there is a move towards convergence of theories within the helping practices (Hackney, 1992, p. 3; Sprenkle, 2003). Researchers and practitioners are searching for an integrated approach which emphasizes the key components within the helping process and relationship that have been linked to effective therapy (Hackney, 1992, p.2). Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) have been shown to bring about positive changes in therapy. CBT and PCT, like all single-theory approaches, have limitations. Literature suggests......

...Examining Physical Therapy in Detail Physical therapy became an existing treatment as early as the 5th century. The earliest documented history of when physical therapy began as both a treatment method but also a career was in the late 1800s, which was when the nurses from England established the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (Eugene Physical Therapy, 2011). For over more than a century and since its development, physical therapy has expanded with multi-faceted treatment regimens, as well as various opportunities for careers in this field. Physical therapists are responsible for a wide array of disabling conditions; some of these conditions include: arthritis, cerebral palsy, fractures, head injuries, etc. With these conditions, the physical therapist would be responsible for restoring function, improving mobility, and allowing the patients to perform daily activities of living with an optimal level of function. According to Dawn Rosenburg McKay (2010), physical therapy has been on demand, in which there were approximately 185,000 jobs taken as physical therapists in 2008. Physical therapists have an option to either work in an actual hospital setting, but they can also work in private offices. Based on the year 2009, McKay states that the median annual income of a physical therapist was at about $75,000 dollars.  The physical therapist that was interviewed is Suanna Wong. She has been working as a physical therapist for 10 years. The questions used in the interview...

Gestalt Therapy with Children and a Comparative Therapy

...Introduction Gestalt therapy, which was founded by Fritz and Laura Perls in the 1940s, teaches the therapists and their clients the phenomenological awareness method, where feeling, perceiving and acting are differentiated from interpreting and rearranging the pre-existing attitudes. Gestalt therapists and clients’ dialogue, thus communicating their phenomenological perspectives, and their differences in perceptions form the basis and focus of experimentation and continued dialogue. The desired outcome of the therapy process is for the client to become aware of their actions, how they are acting, and the ways they can change their actions and learn to accept and appreciate themselves. Here, the emphasis is mainly on the process rather than the content of the therapy, that is, what is happening rather than what is being discussed. Gestalt therapy was mainly considered for adults. However, Violet Oaklander (2007) says that it is also suitable to be applied to children since it involves the body and the senses, all of which fit the therapeutic works with the children. The purpose of this paper is to formulate a response in the manner a Gestalt therapist would work with children of ages between 4 and 12. Here, the general and Gestalt literature is explored, synthesized and evaluated on working with this particular population, their specific needs and particular ethical challenges that may emerge while working with them. A comparison is offered on how different modalities with......

...Temperament Analysis (TJTA) The TJTA was created by Robert Taylor and Lucile Morrison and is the newest of the assessments discussed thus far (Wright, 1996). It was originally copyrighted in 1984. The assessment is used to help individuals develop awareness of several personality features will influence their interactions with others. A unique feature of the profile is its ability to use a “criss-cross” analysis, whereby one is able to compare self-perception to how a partner perceives the same characteristics. The instrument measures nine areas of functioning, all of which are measured on a continuum, and they are described as: 81 • Nervous vs. Composed: tense, high-strung, apprehensive vs. calm, relaxed, tranquil • Depressive vs. Light-Hearted: pessimistic, discouraged, dejected vs. happy, cheerful, optimistic • Active-Social vs. Quiet: energetic, enthusiastic, socially involved vs. socially inactive, lethargic, withdrawn • Expressive-Responsive vs. Inhibited: spontaneous, affectionate, demonstrative vs. restrained, unresponsive, repressed • Sympathetic vs. Indifferent: kind, understanding, compassionate vs. unsympathetic, insensitive, unfeeling • Subjective vs. Objective: emotional, illogical, self-absorbed vs. fair-minded, reasonable, logical • Dominant vs. Submissive: confident, assertive, competitive vs. passive, compliant, dependent • Hostile vs. Tolerant: critical, argumentative, punitive vs. accepting, patient, humane • Self-Disciplined vs.......

Therapy

...The relationship between a counselor and their clients should always remain confidential. The client comes to therapy seeking professional help on very personal and private issues in their lives. Whether it is current or past situations, clients will reveal their emotions and opinions that are so sacred, the counselor will have to uphold a certain ethical precedence. Protecting the client and their information is detrimental. In the ethics scenario with Shannon and Pastor Larry’s voicemail, there seems to be an ethical issue. The pastor has called Shannon with information on a few of her clients. Not only did he know way too much about Andy and Jennifer, he left a recording with information about them on Shannon’s phone. This clearly is an issue of confidentiality. Standard 2.2 of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists Code of Ethics states, “Marriage and family therapists do not disclose client confidences except by written authorization or waiver, or where mandated or permitted by law.” Pastor Larry has no right to any of Shannon’s client information. As a licensed therapist, Shannon is obligated to keep all of her clients’ information confidential. She cannot even confirm that Jennifer and Andy are her clients as this will violate their confidentiality. Shannon should not respond to the pastor’s phone call. As a therapist, she should know that she is unable to discuss case without consent from the client first. Breaching confidentiality can cause a......

...Urine Therapy We look at urine as waste and unsanitary toxins that can cause bodily harm if consumed back into the body. Little that we know that urine has been used for medicine, muscle relaxing treatments, rubbing alcohol, acne treatment, religious purposes, and even something bizarre as consuming it since the beginning of time. So is urine as toxic, disgusting and harmful that we think or is we simply misinterpreting and over reacting to a natural healthy therapeutic solution? Urine therapy has been around for a long time. The Romans and Spaniards used urine to keep their teeth bright and white. They believe that urine from another man or themselves was rich and kept plaque from building up. Religiously, urine was looked at as oil or pure substances that helped relax and heal the body. An India religious Sanskrit called Damar Tantra “pure water or one’s own urine” and actual named the fluid, Shivambu Kalpa. They believed by applying the natural fluid to wounds, sore body parts, or infected areas, would help prevent any fared infections and heal any wounds. Even the Bible mentions urine therapy! A verse in Proverbs (Proverbs 5:15) advices: “Drink waters from thy own cistern, flowing water from thy own well.” Urine therapy has been mention all too often to not believe that it has some kind of positive effect. Let’s try and look at it from a scientific stand point. Scientist conducted studies to see if urine therapy method was a phony or factual. In fact, urine showed......

Strategic Therapy

...Systems Theories: Strategic Therapy Strategic Therapy or Strategic Family Therapy is one of the oldest theories used in the practice of marriage and family therapy today. It was developed by Don Jackson and others affiliated to the Palo Alto group. Jay Haley and the Milan Group are also important practitioners of the model Strategic Therapy. This theory is portrayed as focused on altering family dynamics, eliminating problems and focusing on the presenting problems rather than the past, and often giving homework and behavioral tasks to clients. In this essay is a detailed description of the history of strategic therapy, beliefs, techniques and problems presented by this theory. The strategic therapy is dated back to the early 1950s and as mentioned before was developed by Don Jackson and is associated with communication theory which was developed by Gregory Bateson, who is also the leader of Palo Alto. During the mid-1980s and early 1990s strategic family therapy was sharply criticized as being covert, manipulative, and even unethical in its practice (Duncan, 1992; Held, 1992;Wendorf & Wendorf, 1985). Strategic therapy is wide spread throughout the world even though there was a lot of resistance from traditional therapists. As mentioned before Jay Haley and the Milan Group are important practitioners of this approach and focusing primarily on resolving the presenting problems in a seemingly “paradoxical” way. The strategic approach is also associated with the Mental......
