Are You Ready to Beat the Pain?

Whether you are suffering from long-term pain or pain from a recent injury you CAN get permanent relief from your pain. Most of you know that acupuncture has been long proven as a safe and highly-effective treatment for pain. Not only is it effective, but it often has unexpected, positive side effects such as general calming, better sleep, and a brighter mood. But what other treatments can help in a non-toxic and safe manner?

In addition to acupuncture, herbal and homeopathy supplements, we now have the MLS Laser, which is another highly-effective therapy. This is a high-tech, Class 4 medical-grade laser, and it is a safe, effective, painless treatment for all pain types.  In this article you will learn about laser therapy for pain, and I’ll give you some background on who I am.

Common conditions treated

As an acupuncture physician, I have seen patients with many pain conditions, including back pain, arthritis pain, hip pain, muscle strain, knee pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, heel pain, pain due to injury or numbness and carpal tunnel tingling. Whenever I see pain, I know the MLS Laser is an excellent tool to use.  It simply works!  Sometimes I combine acupuncture and the MLS Laser for maximum effect in a single treatment session.

Benefits of laser therapy

Laser treatment is a non-surgical, light-frequency treatment, and it is pain free. It is also extremely safe with no know side effects, the results are seen fast, and it helps speed up healing time.

Cleared by the FDA in 2009 MLS Laser uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body’s own healing process to minimize pain, inflammation and arthritis. Specific wave patterns are set for each patient’s individual condition, and many patients feel relief in just a few treatments.

Once pain relief is achieved, the effect is generally long lasting.  However occasional treatments over the course of a year are recommended to most effectively maintain the effects longer-term in the body.

Why Laser is Different

MLS Laser Therapy is a medical breakthrough therapeutic device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes. The Laser works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms (PAIN) to disappear.

The primary biological action of laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes and epithelial tissues. This action causes the release of vasodilating chemicals, the stimulation of DNA and RNA (Building blocks) synthesis, an increase in enzyme production, an increase of superoxide dismutase activity (a powerful antioxidant), normalization of tissue pH, and increased ATP production. Cells are healed from the inside.

The increase of vasodilatation (blood supply) and improved microcirculation will increase the supply of cellular nutrition promoting tissue repair and remodeling (which means you heal faster). Significant reduction in edema (swelling) is also noted.

What are our patients saying?

Our patient’s own experiences say it all.  Here are a few different conditions and the happy results people have experienced with the MLS Laser:

“I was referred to Dr. Michelle Brown from my Neurologist many years ago, looking for a treatment for my Trigeminal Neuralgia. I was very grateful for the relief of my pain. After several treatments of Laser, there was considerable relief and I am now able to go 6 months to a year without flare-ups. Laser treatments are a non-invasive procedure, and I am very satisfied with the results. I also used it for my neck, back, and knees. Thank You, Dr Michelle.” ~ Gail D.


“I broke my foot a few years ago and had a lot of pain and swelling.” I had 6 laser treatments and my pain was gone. I was amazed. I use MSL Laser as needed for neck and back pain a few times a year now and feel great.” ~ Rachel M.

John G. wrote to tell us that, after having 10 treatments, he has had substantial improvement in his neck and shoulder pain.
“I was a fireman when I was in my 20’s, and I tore my rotator cuff. I didn’t want surgery, so I tried laser therapy.  And to my surprise I got relief!  I would recommend MLS Laser therapy.”

About the Doctor:

Dr. Michelle Brown has practiced acupuncture in the U.S. since 2008.  She began her studies in the U.S. with an ear acupuncture training program at Brighton Hospital, Michigan. Shortly thereafter she set up the first NADA ear acupuncture program in Nobel County, Indiana’s Drug Court.

Additionally, Dr. Brown worked for three months with Dr. Christopher Bretz in his smoking cessation clinic in Northern Indiana. It is here that her vision of a complementary healthcare clinic began to form, and in August 2009 Dr. Brown enrolled at the Atlantic Institute for Oriental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale Florida. After graduating, she opened Alternative Natural Healthcare, LLC in Bonita Springs Florida and has been practicing acupuncture, acupuncture injection therapy, laser therapy, and other Oriental Medicine modalities such as herbal and homeopathic medicine, essential oils, and micro needling for facial rejuvenation.

Dr. Brown’s initial interest in Acupuncture and herbal medicine comes from a personal healing she experienced in 2005-2006 from acupuncture treatments which eliminated her suffering from allergies, asthma and side effects from vaccines. Thereafter she began taking courses in China and working with the best TCM practitioners in Suzhou and Nanjing China. Prior to practicing TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Dr. Brown practiced law in Northern Indiana and currently does legal projects as time permits.
