Low Level Laser Therapy "Cold Laser" Training
Training courses for treatment of musculoskeletal and dental pathologies
The THOR training course is primarily intended for treating musculoskeletal pain, neuropathic pain and wounds with Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).
Our new extended knowledge matrix is a simple model for understanding LLLT mechanism of action, clinical effects and treatment methods.
The course focuses on back and neck pain, acute soft tissue injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain and other chronic pain syndromes as well as wound healing and other tissue regeneration applications. We will also cover other pathologies as requested by participants.
This training teaches "first principles": from light absorption, the cascade of intracellular and extra cellular effects, physiological changes and clinical outcomes and is substantially based on a paper we co-authored with Harvard Medical School which you can download here. In the training course these principle are explained in simple terms with good illustrations and supporting video.
This is a workshop not a lecture and you earn 8 hours education credits (CME / CEU / CPD) and a certificate of attendance will be provided.
Discounts for groups, repeat attendees and early registration.

Crestwood Veterinary Centre
"Last year's THOR conference was one of the most inspiring continuing ed courses I have ever taken. I loved taking the course with other disciplines - my friend the veterinarian was with me and my fellow hand therapist. Other attendees were dentists, MDs and a horse trainer. An interest in healing was the common thread for all of us. I am planning to attend again next year: looking forward to it"

"I attended the Thor LLLT course in Sydney on 9 September 2013 with 3 of my fellow educators and about 12 Students studying Laser and IPL at the Australasian College. We were both inspired and excited about what we learned that day and 'have seen the light'. James is a brilliant presenter complemented superbly by Mark making the perfect team to spread the word. Well done guys."

"Repeat attendee to Thor courses. I must say I was hoping to get more clinically relevant information this time and was not disappointed. Came away with much more refined dosage information - better than any other source I have accessed. Also was able to immediately apply this updated scientifically authenticated information readily into clinical practise with excellent results. Love the newsletters and the journal reviews - great! Well done guys :-)"
