Laser therapy – a natural, non-invasive approach to treating women facing infertility and other reproductive health issues.
Founded in Denmark in 1982, PowerMedic’s mission has always been to help people to a better life.
Laser therapy accelerates the natural healing process, and:
- relieves pain
- reduces swelling and inflammation
- increases the blood circulation
- enhances the immune system
- … and more
Laser therapy works really well for a variety of both acute and chronic conditions, including sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, chronic pain, and wounds.
Since 2012, a number of clinics in Denmark and Norway have also been using the GigaLaser, our large-area laser, to increase the chances of pregnancy for women with fertility challenges – and with great success.
As of 2019, the number of women who had been treated was an estimated 400, resulting in 260 pregnancies, or 65%.
The clinics are also seeing other positive side effects from the GigaLaser therapy: irregular or missing menstruations are normalized, pain and discomfort from endometriosis is relieved, as well as pain from PCOS.

Laser Therapy and Fertility In Practice
As of 2019, an estimated 400 women facing fertility challenges had received treatments that included GigaLaser treatments, resulting in 260 pregnancies, or 65%. 260 new lives – all perfectly healthy children.
For many of these women, the laser treatment has been their last resort, having gone through several IVF’s etc. – and being told that they had no chance of conceiving their own child.
In Denmark and Norway, several clinics are using the GigaLaser as a part of their fertility treatments.
In time, it is our hope that this method will find its way to the thousands of couples who still are waiting for their dream to come true.
The GigaLaser protocol is straightforward:
Starting on the first day of menstruation, a total of 6 treatments is applied over the course of 2 weeks.
At this point, when ovulation is expected, insemination (natural or otherwise) is attempted.
If the woman does not conceive, and menstruation returns, another course of treatments is given.
For the treatment, the GigaLaser is placed directly over the abdominal area, 1-2 cm above the bare skin (the GigaLaser treatment screen covers 500 cm2).
Each treatment is 23 minutes, and the total dose is 20,000 Joules (15,000 Joules of near-infrared laser light at 808 nm, plus 5,000 Joules of red LED at 660 nm).
There are no known side effects of laser therapy, and there’s no discomfort associated with the treatment.
One clinic, in particular, has gone all the way and started a designated fertility clinic. It was founded by physical therapist Anne Marie Jensen (Copenhagen, Denmark) in 2011, and as of 2016-11-04, she had treated a total of 171 women – and 116 of them became pregnant. That’s a success rate of 68%.
All of Anne Marie’s fertility patients go through a thorough physical examination. If needed, they’re given physical therapy treatments for releasing muscle tensions, correcting postural problems and softening of any scar tissue. In addition, they’re coached for stress and life-style issues.
Based on her work, Anne Marie recently published the book “Fertilitet og fysioterapi – en guide til behandling og selvbehandling” (also available in English: “Fertility and physical therapy –a guide to therapy and self-treatment”; and German: “Kinder-wunsch – Wie Physiotherapie helfen kann”). The book is available at PowerMedic and elsewhere.
From all the GigaLaser clinics, we get a lot of feedback about other positive side effects from the GigaLaser therapy. Irregular or missing menstruations are normalized, pain and discomfort from endometriosis is relieved, as well as pain from PCOS. This will, of course, increase the odds of getting pregnant, but the clinics receive many clients for non-pregnancy related problems, as well.
How does it work?
Numerous scientific studies have shown that when cells with a lack of energy are exposed to laser light, the mitochondria will start producing more ATP. This will directly influence the oocyte, increasing the energy level and drastically improve the chances of conceiving.
Aside from egg quality issues, there’s a number of complications that can impede the likelihood of getting pregnant. All of these are addressed with a laser device like the GigaLaser, since it covers the entire abdominal area. With the increased level of ATP, the cell has more power to do what it’s supposed to do, and that leads to a host of other beneficial effects:
· increases blood circulation
· reduces edema
· regulates inflammation
· relieves pain
· relaxes muscle tensions
· softens scar tissue
With these types of indications, laser therapy is often combined with physical therapies or acupuncture. The combination will optimize the environment in the abdominal area, creating the best conditions for pregnancy. This is akin to fertilizing the soil before planting a seed.
What about men?
The clinics using laser therapy for infertility in women are also treating a growing number of men with low sperm counts. We’ve not yet assembled the statistical data, however, the effects of laser therapy are dramatic: we see numbers increase from 2 million/ml to more than 40 million/ml, after one treatment.
The laser being used for this is the PowerLaser Pro500 or the PowerLaser Basic500, from PowerMedic.
The protocol is as follows: The PowerLaser is placed 1-2 cm above the testicle (the PowerLaser covers 1 cm2 ), one treatment is 2 x 10 seconds per testicle, total dose is 10 Joules per testicle (near-infrared laser light at 808 nm).
