Deep Tissue



Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a revolutionary approach to pain relief. This FDA cleared medical treatment uses focused light to stimulate photobiomodulation - an interaction that triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to reduced pain and improved circulation. Finally, you can get relief without invasive procedures or medications.

ATP Powerhouse

The Krebs cycle is what generates cellular energy inside your body. Light activation boosts the body’s natural Krebs Cycle, which in turn assists in creating more ATP.

ATP is the energy currency of all the cells in your body. When your body has sufficient ATP levels, it has more energy to spend on restorative processes such as collagen and elastin production – these are the proteins your body uses to heal itself.

What is Light Therapy?

Light Therapy uses a process known as Photobiomodulation (PBM) in which light triggers a cascade of biological events that leads to increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue.

In Photobiomodulation (PBM), photons enter the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria. This triggers the Krebs cycle.

When all of those essential metabolic events happen, it results in greater outcomes beyond just collagen production. We see a cascade of benefits such as:

  • ​Reduce Inflammation

  • Reduce Chronic Pain

  • Accelerated Tissue Repair

  • Accelerated Cell Growth

  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

  • Boost Energy

  • Improve Mood

  • Improve Sleep

  • Boost Physical Performance

  • Promotes Recovery

  • Reduce Soreness

  • Increase Circulation

  • Increases Lymphatic Drainage

  • Promotes Recovery

  • Reduce Soreness

  • Boost Immune Function

  • Reduce the Negative Effects of Stress

  • Loosen Tight Muscles

  • Improve Joint Function

  • Lessen the Appearance of Scars

  • Promotes Collagen Production

  • Tighten Skin

  • Improves Skin Health

  • Supports Brain Health

  • Boosts Metabolism

  • Enhances Weight Loss

  • Stimulates Hair Growth

  • Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles

  • Fades Age Spots

  • Reduce Acne

"I have found the Deep Tissue Laser therapy to be one of the most effective therapies I've used for neck pain and it has changed my life after years of pain I was unable to get rid of."

As someone that's suffered with chronic illness and pain and has sought holistic and natural remedies, Proactive has been a crucial player in my healing journey. I've been a monthly massage member for years, and rely on the effective and targeted massages the knowledgeable and skilled Proactive team provides for last pain relief. Recently, with the addition of the red light and sauna services, I am able to add whole body detoxification and rehabilitation to my treatments as well. I have found the targeted red light therapy to be one of the most effective therapies I've used for neck pain and it has changed my life after years of pain I was unable to get rid of. I am so thankful to the team at Proactive for assisting me with my continual journey for wellness, I recommend them to everyone I know and see.

"After struggling to find relief from the excruciating pain in my foot, I had all but given up hope of ever walking again without discomfort. But thanks to a combination of massage and deep tissue laser therapy, I've been gifted an entirely new lease on life - no more agonizing pain or swelling! Deep tissue laser truly gave me my life back. ."     -Margaret M

Light Therapy Options



Adipose Tissue

Conclusions: "Except for the IR3.3 group, all treated groups reduced the body weight (p < 0.001). The R5 group reduced the abdominal subcutaneous tissue weight and thickness (p < 0.05), even though all treated groups reduced the number of adipocytes and its size (p < 0.001). No histological changes in the liver. 


Bone Repair

Conclusion: "Histometrical analysis revealed a more rapid accumulation of reparative new bone in the hole injury of the laser-irradiated legs. We conclude that GaAsAl laser irradiation after injury was effective on bone repair when compared to results in the control group."


Brain Disease

Conclusions: "Studying the literature indicated that PBM can be translated to a potential therapeutic tool, acting through a spectrum of mechanisms that work together to decelerate disease progression in the organism, which is difficult to achieve through pharmacological interventions."



Conclustion: "Light emitting diode (LED) phototherapy is a promising treatment modality for photorejuvenation as it is safe, noninvasive, accessible, and can be easily combined with other treatment options. LED irradiation alters intrinsic cellular activity via absorption by chromophores located in the skin and may result in desirable photorejuvenation effects. In this review, we discuss the physiologic process of cutaneous aging, how visible light phototherapy with LEDs may be used to treat aging skin, and the importance of photoprotection."


Hair Growth

Conclusion: "Low-level 650 nm red light promoted the proliferation of human hair follicles in the experimental cultured-tissue model.

Consistently, 650 nm red light significantly delayed the transition of hair cycle from anagen to catagen in vitro.

RNA-seq analysis and gene clustering for the differentially expressed genes suggests that leukocyte transendothelial migration, metabolism, adherens junction and other biological process maybe involved in stimulation of hair follicles by 650-nm red light treatment."

No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery.
Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.
