Cold Laser For Chronic Pain

Cold Laser Therapy Austin TX


What Is Cold Laser?

Cold Laser Therapy is a clinically-proven therapy, with over 2,500 scientific papers, published worldwide. There are no reported side effects to this painless, non-thermal, non-toxic, non-invasive, non-ablative, light-based therapy, which requires no down time. 


How Does Cold Laser Work?

Cold Laser helps to reduce inflammation and it increases vascular activity.  Cold Laser also stimulates lymph and blood circulation, allowing the affected tissue to benefit from the best possible circulation.

How Can Cold Laser Therapy Help With My Myofascial Pain Issues?

Pain results from trauma, inflammation, malfunction, or less than optimal cellular function (Trigger Points are an area of high metabolic activity, and low circulation).  Cold Laser stimulates circulation, allowing these areas to return to normal healthy function.

Cold Laser Therapy can be used to release Trigger Points by energizing stressed muscles and increasing circulation to painful areas. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain.

Cold Laser Therapy can dramatically reduce the pain associated with the following: 

  • Acute And Chronic Pain
  • Low Back Strain
  • Muscle Strain
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bulging, Herniating or Slipped Discs
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis Elbow
  • TMJ
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Head, Neck, And Shoulder Pain Related To Myofascial Trigger Points
  • Headaches, Including Migraines
  • Sports Injuries (Pulled Hamstrings, Calves, And Quads)
  • Knee Pain From Myofascial Trigger Points
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • And Many More Joint, Muscle, Circulatory And Inflammatory Conditions

We have found Cold Laser to be a painless and highly effective method of releasing the hyper-irritable nodules known as Trigger Points that can form in muscle tissue, and our Clinical Massage Therapy training allows us to release those Trigger Points in a strategic order.


Here's What A Few Of Our Clients Have To Say:

Best Place In Austin for Athletes
5 Star Review

Jen B. says: Shane and Susan are amazing, knowledgable and hands down, the best LMT's in town! I've battled injured for a little over a year and only wish I had met Shane and Susan earlier. Shane has helped me beat a bad case of plantar fascia with cold laser treatment and deep massage. (I tried every possible treatment for PF and cold laser is the only treatment that worked 100%!!) He also helped with manage some inflammation that was building up in my legs from marathon training. Tiger Lily Studios is an essential part of my marathon training plan and I am so thankful for that. Shane and Susan go above and beyond to help their clients manage pain, relieve stress and/or address whatever you may be dealing with. I've been to a lot of massage/body workers around town but no one comes close to providing the services/care that Tiger Lily Studios does.*


Thorough & Knowledgeable
5 Star Review

Beverly M. says: I was referred to Shane & Susan about 4 years ago by my Naturopath when she moved back to Oregon. I was going to her for Cold Laser Therapy. I did go to Susan once for an awesome massage, but I live over an hour outside of Austin and even though I go there often, I just kept putting off going back and made excuses that I shouldn't spend the money on taking care of myself..... It took a debilitating carpel tunnel episode (and a number of other issues) to finally get me to call them again. I've had one session of Cold Laser Therapy with Shane so far, and I am able to use my hand without excruciating pain. Shane worked on my neck as well, and that is even moving more today. He takes the time to sit down and go over everything with you to get the full picture. He even took the time to reach out to my former Naturopath to ask about my treatments with her. I cannot wait to get back for more sessions of Cold Laser and massage. I believe Cold Laser is a miracle treatment. Thank you both!!*


I can't tell you how much better my foot is doing after just 4 treatments with the Cold Laser at Tiger Lily Studios!

5 Star Review

Kim P. says:  When I first visited the clinic, there was a constant feeling of having a pebble in my shoe on the left foot, with associated pain, and it was affecting every moment of every day for me.  I was very discouraged, had quit working out for the most part, and honestly, leading a hobbled existence at best.  A local foot doctor, after taking X-rays sometime last year, had simply told me this "don't get any surgery on it unless it's a last resort ". And that is all he offered me, no ideas at all about correcting it.  I am so hopeful that this will continue to offer me relief from the constant pain, and I am resuming my normal activities as a result. I can't thank you enough!!! I would highly recommend this course of treatment to anyone.* 

Shane and Susan are simply the best bodyworkers in town!
5 Star Review

Jen B. says:  “Shane and Susan are simply the best bodyworkers in town! I've suffered from Plantar Fasciitis for a very long time and was getting super frustrated after trying various treatments. A friend told me to go see Shane for Cold Laser Therapy and I am so glad I did. I no longer have any plantar issues! Shane has worked miracles on my feet/legs/hips and he has gone above and beyond to make sure I am ready to run my next marathon.” *

Big thanks to Susan and Shane for helping me work through a painful arm injury.
5 Star Review

Laura M. says:  They took great care of me and were focused on getting to the source of the problem. I appreciated how they walked me through what they were doing with the trigger point therapy, cold laser therapy and light therapy. I live in San Antonio but plan on going back! *

5 Star Review

Arlana C. says: I had been dealing with neck and back pain for several weeks now. I was in constant pain on a daily basis. I booked an appointment with Shane for cold laser therapy. When I left his facility, the pain had lessened by 25%. That evening, the pain had decreased by 95%! I am still feeling great this morning and so grateful for all of Shane's help and knowledge. *

Life changing!
5 Star Review

Anne J. says: I experienced my first cold laser therapy treatment after being unable to stand up straight for a couple of weeks. I went from a pain level of 9 to about 3 in an hour's time and walked out standing up straight. The people I work with said I grew two inches over the weekend! I am recommending Tiger Lily, Shane, and cold laser therapy to everyone I know! And I will DEFINITELY be back! *

Shane saved my marathon!
5 Star Review

Kevin B. says: Last Monday while completing one of my last workouts before yesterday's California International Marathon, my calf locked up on me. The pain had been building for several weeks and I was hopeful I could make it to the marathon without any issues. Fortunately for me, a friend recommended I get into to see Shane asap so I could still run my marathon this weekend. I was lucky to get an appointment the next morning with Shane. He spent a good hour working out the golf ball size knot in my calf and provided me with cold laser therapy. He gave me instructions to soak my leg in cold,hot, cold water and come back to see him in two days for another round of laser therapy. My calf started to feel much better after the first treatment and was back to 100% by Friday. I was not only able to finish the marathon yesterday, I also met my 3:05 goal. This is my personal best time by over 4mins and I couldn't have done it without Shane! I highly recommend Shane if you're experiencing running pains. I've seen many specialist over the years for running issues and I've never seen immediate results like I did with Shane. Thanks again Shane! *

Can't say enough good things about Susan and Shane Epperly.
5 Star Review

Alice S. says:  I have seen both of them in my quest to heal from major back trauma.  They each have their different specialties but work in tandem to come up with a protocol for each individual client/patient and their issues.  Tho they do offer a regular massage, this studio is best suited for those with neuromuscular issues and/or needing one of the other specialty services they offer (I highly recommend the cold laser if you are suffering from deep pain issues.)  They are not only professionals in every sense of the word, but very kind, fun, enjoyable human beings.  Can't recommend them enough.*

More relief than I ever imagined I could have......
5 Star Review

Annetta B. says: Susan and Shane came highly recommended by my sister. I suffer from pretty serious migraine headaches and went in to see Susan the first time with a beginning migraine. When I walked out of there, I had no headache and it didn't return. What a great blessing! On the next visit to Susan, she worked out a particularly bad catch in my neck and shoulder. Again, the problem never returned. Shane used a little cold laser treatment on a torn muscle in my forearm....I will be seeing him again for that treatment. It truly is speeding the healing of that muscle. These two folks are super - wonderful, very kind and highly professional. I'm proud to have them calling Austin home! *

Cold Laser Therapy
5 Star Review

Jennifer K. says:  I decided to try the cold laser therapy through a groupon deal. i was pleased with the results and hope that when i have more in the way of my finances that i can return for another treatment. shane was very professional and personable. I felt that he really took the time to inquire about my history with pain and attempt to figure out the cause. I would recommend their business to anyone. *
