Adjunct Therapies & Tools


Kate incorporates the use of  Q 1000 Soliton Laser Therapy in her practice usually in combination with other modalities.

It has been used for over 30 years in many countries as therapeutic energy to bring about favorable biological effects in both plants, animals and people. Low level laser therapy has been proven completely safe in over 2000 worldwide studies.

This Low Level Resonating laser emits subtle energy which is especially effective for:

  • Regenerating and re-energizing cell membranes to allow transport of essential nutrients across cell walls (nutrients will not cross an injured or sick cell wall, thus slowing healing) allowing a healthy new cell to grow.
  • Reducing pain by stimulating cells to produce their own endorphins, a natural pain killer
  • Promoting faster healing by stimulating cells to increase the production of two major healing enzymes by as much as 75%
  • Reducing inflammation by as much as 75%, Increasing bone repair speed by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation.
  • Relaxing nerves and muscles.
  • Decreasing swelling by stimulating lymphatic drainage
  • Enhancing the immune system by increasing the number of “killer” cells by 400-900%
  • Clearing and balancing the chakra system
  • Facial rejuvenation

Users have reported successes when using low level laser therapy for:

  • Weight Loss
  • Migraines
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Anti-Aging
  • Stress Reduction
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Back and Shoulder Pain
  • Burns and Cuts
  • Sprains
  • Colds and Cold Sores
  • Sinusitis
  • and even Age Spots!

Low level laser therapy may be used any place there is acute or chronic pain or inflammation, and is effective on any disease or disorder.

Here is a more scientific description of how it works taken from their web site: “A Soliton Wave is a non-linear light wave that maintains its shape and increases amplitude after colliding with a similar wave. This increased amplitude of combined wavelengths allows the Soliton Wave to penetrate deeper into the body tissue. This is the same principle that is used by whales and dolphins to communicate hundreds of miles with subtle voice frequencies projected into wave currents, which creates a Soliton Wave of new energy. With the Q1000, the subtle healing energies of the red light spectrum, piggy-back on the deeper penetrating frequencies of the infrared spectrum, creating a cascading effect of healing frequencies that are delivered directly to the cells that need the energy at a power density that is easily assimilated. The soliton wave is the greatest breakthrough in Low Level Lasers and makes it possible for subtle energy to penetrate deep into body tissues to resonate cells and balance organs Laser irradiation of tissue promotes healing at the deepest level possible, the level of the cells themselves.”


The Far Infrared Thermal Therapy Hothouse Dome

In her practice, Kate uses the The Far Infrared Hothouse Dome also known as the portable, far infrared ‘Sweatless Sauna’

Here is more information taken from their website:

The hothouse dome produces its healing benefits through radiant Far Infrared heat. Its unique, specially arched design and multifaceted acute-angled silicon crystal chip, inner surface, maximizes the penetrating radiant heat absorbed by the body, thereby enhancing the thermal effect.

A functional blood circulation system is indispensable not only for a quality life, but also to maintain health. If blood circulates well, tissues will receive the energy in the form of nutrients and oxygen to help the metabolic activities they need, as well keeping the heart healthy.

Physical Effects of the Far Infrared Thermal Therapy Hothouse Dome include:

  • Increased blood flow by promoting expansion in the capillaries
  • Decreased muscle spasms, pain and soreness.
  • Reduced swelling and inflammation, by improving lymphatic flow.
  • Removal of heavy toxins – metal poisoning and chemicals – due to activated metabolic activity.
  • Improved oxygenation exchange and accelerated metabolism.
  • Tissue regeneration.
  • Relief from breathing and lung challenges.

FIR Hothouse Health Benefits:

  • Excellent treatment for chronic diseases especially Cancer – Prostate,†Ovarian, Breast, and Colon
  • Excellent for alleviation of rheumatism, arthritis, gout, and reducing the density of uric acid.
  • Extremely effective for clearing breathing problems such as asthma, sinusitis, allergies and bronchitis.
  • Very good for relieving paralysis, sciatica, insomnia, neuralgia, abnormal nerve functions, high blood pressure and chilblains.
  • Relaxes muscles and relieves muscular ache – Reduces back, shoulder and neck pains.
  • Excellent for reducing swelling, inflammation and associated pain.
  • Stimulates lymphatic cleansing – Enables elimination of toxins, lactic acid and carcinogenic heavy metals. Excellent for serious detoxification.
  • Stimulates blood circulation – Very effective for chronic nephritis patients, reducing blood pressure and improving urination. Effectively improves and can eliminate piles and hemorrhoids.)

A far infrared mat with imbedded jade is also available to use in conjunction with the dome or separately. For more information on the mat go to
