for a Fabulous 2018 !!!

Phew, 2017 – what a year so far !!

Well, I thought last year flew by  …  but 2017 hasn’t slowed up yet  !!!

Monthly highlights so far  …

January   started with a flurry of training sessions around the country  –  from Devon to Lancaster to Maidstone, with many other places in between  –  largely Omega Manufacture Training, for those who had bought, together with on-site veterinary courses at practices who wanted greater in-depth knowledge of LLLT application.

February  began with a trip down to Howletts Safari Park, Hythe, Sussex.  Having consulted with them for almost a year regarding one of their Eastern Black Rhinos, they purchased a Laser for in-house use  –  so it was great to set up a course for the vets to discover the multitude of conditions they could use their laser on.

Towards the end of the month I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at the ACPAT Annual Conference, to not only highlight the benefits of LLLT, but to also start a discussion on the current ‘hot topic’ of Class 3B vs Class 4  –  a really interesting Conference, with great speakers and informative discussions.

The month finished with a quick trip down to ZSL, Regents Park to discuss a troubled Tapir  –  it’s a hard life, but someone’s got to do it !!

March    saw the start of the Omega Equine yearly courses over in Newmarket  –  always a lively weekend which brings together people from all aspects of the equine world  …  with much networking and discussion, particularly surrounding the now popular Friday evening ‘get together’ !!

More courses, this time here at The Lightworks Clinic, together with a bespoke course held in Cardiff for Innermost Healthcare, Ash Tree Private Medical Clinic  –  a fabulous clinic dedicated to women’s health and already achieving great results with LLLT.

The month concluded with another invitation to speak  –  this time at the  NAVP Conference, Warwickshire  –  a smaller but friendly and dedicated group of practitioners.

April   found me winging my way over to Sydney, Australia for the month  –  principally to see my son  …  but I did take the opportunity to pop to the Gold Coast see my colleague Monica Stratford and run an LLLT course for her staff at Total Essence, Paradise Point  –  a lovely wellness clinic in a heavenly part of the world !

May  back home  …  but only for four days before flying over to Berlin for two weeks to carry out stallion research at the dedicated Freie University Reproduction Center  –  Pferdezentrum Bad Saarow 

This was a ‘full on’ project from dawn to dusk on 24 hour stand-by  –  principally because May is the height of the foaling season … patience was delightfully rewarded with the birth of  ‘Bilbo Baggins’,  the tiniest, cutest little Shetland pony !!   However, our time was not all spent ‘cooing’ over the latest arrival  – sound and detailed research was undertaken during that fortnight … so watch this space for the outcomes later this year !!

June    saw more training courses around the country, from Sidmouth, Whittington and Sussex (again), together with the June Omega Newmarket Equine Course  –  quite a quiet month really !!

July  –  started with the Lightworks Canine Weekend of Canine Laser Therapy and Canine Introduction to Laser Acupuncture courses,  followed by two trips down to the Southampton and Bournemouth areas for more Manufacturer Training.

However, the really exciting event in July was being approached by International Avian Vet, Dr Neil A Homer-Forbes,  BVetMed Dip ECZM(avian) FRCVS, to join him next January out in South Africa at VULPRO  –  a dedicated rehabilitation center for injured vultures  –  so there will be  more on this unique project over the months to come  …

In the meantime, take a look at the work they are already doing to save this critically endangered and absolutely essential eco-species from extinction  …   www.vulpro.com

 

 

7th ISSR Conference

ISSR

 

7th International Symposium on Stallion Reproduction  

 

Well, what a jolly interesting Conference                             this turned out to be  …

Not only  …   delighted to have passed the rigorous review process in order to be selected to present an Abstract at the Conference on last year’s published research on  the  …

 “Use of Thermography for Functional Evaluation of Stallion Scrotum and Testes” 

 ISSR Poster

But also  ...   for the opportunity to listen to top speakers in this field  –  including the incomparable Dickson Varner, Sue McDonnell, Nancy Ing, Tom Stout, ChrFighting Illiniistine Aurich, Charley Love, Tom Long, Igor Canisso … the list is endless  –  the whole Programme was jam-packed with interesting people and progressive ideas !!

Hosted in Illinois by the College of Veterinary Medicine,  University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, with the opening Reception held at the famous ‘Fighting Illioni’ Memorial Football Stadium  –  the whole Symposium kicked off to a great start !!

BMLA Course Approval

BMLA Banner

BRITISH MEDICAL LASER ASSOCIATION

We are delighted to announce the British Medical Laser Association has given its approval to our Human Medical 3B Laser Course  !!

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has a strong and published history that stretches back over the last 40 years, with more research added each month.  It has a wide and varied application from the ability to help heal open wounds, skin problems, soft tissue injuries, muscle, tendon, ligament and bone and is becoming widely used by doctors, dentists and chiropodists, as well as by an increasing number of therapists from all disciplines  –  who find it adds an extra dimension to their already established techniques.

However, whilst the effects of LLLT are now widely praised, a comprehensive knowledge of the mechanisms of Laser’s action at a cellular level, together with an in-depth understanding of its mode of application, are necessary in order to achieve best and consistent results.

This two day course covers Laser Protocols, Principals, Class 3B Core of Knowledge, Physiology, Theory together with examples from a range of Applications  –  all of which provides the grounding for the safe and practical application Low Level Laser Therapy over a wide range of conditions..

The next course is on  23rd – 24th September 2016
Contact the Clinic for more details  07712 778378

Can’t make that date  …  keep an eye on our  Events Diary page new dates added regularly !!

Acupuncture Awareness Week 2016

It’s that time of year again …

BAcC AWW

ACUPUNCTURE AWARENESS WEEK
7th – 13th March 2016

is once again upon us  …  and there’s a Special  AAW 10% Discount  available when booking  –  just quote  AAW16  !!!

This year’s emphasis is on Sport and Musculoskeletal Injuries  ..   just in time for the Rio Olympics, but even more appropriate for us here at  The Lightworks Clinic 

Our specialty is in helping to resolve Sports and Tissue Injuries using the properties of Low Level Laser to deliver non-invasive, drug-free treatment for all types of injury  – whether open wound, soft tissue, muscular, tendon, ligament or fracture, spinal injuries and paralysis.

Low Level Laser Therapy is a first line treatment modality –  it is recommended, gentle and safe to be given immediately after injury in order to help resolve inflammation and start the healing process  –  unlike some other modes of treatment that suggest waiting until the inflammatory phase has passed.

Laser Acupuncture  is based on the same Principles and Laws as Traditional Acupuncture, but using Laser’s aseptic, non-invasive, painless properties instead of needles.   Literally  … ‘All the Wisdom of Traditional Acupuncture,  without the Needles’  

Used in conjunction, these two modes of Laser Therapy have proved to be highly effective in resolving injuries and speeding the whole healing process, at the same time as strengthening the tissue involved  –  in The Lightworks Clinic this is backed by 25 years of experience in the field.

Remember  …  the earlier the treatment,  the better the results !!
