Tammy Wyatt, RMT Registered Massage Therapist

Hello Saskatoon and surrounding area. My name is Tammy Wyatt and I am excited to be working at Saskatoon Wellness Centre.

I have been practicing massage therapy since 2001 after graduating from the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapy (WCRMT) in Regina, and I am a member of the Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS).  In 2009 I attended training with Meditec to become certified in Laser Therapy.

One of the things I love most about massage is its ability to help people with body awareness. Each treatment or session with me is individualized, to help identify and treat root causes for long term healing. With my years of personal experience and continued education in a variety of modalities, my goal is to provide a platform for the body to move in a direction of healing. I have particular interest in CranioSacral Therapy, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization and Pregnancy Massage.

Although I am passionate about Massage Therapy and believe it is a great tool on its own, it also compliments Laser Therapy and takes it to the next level.  Low Intensity, Low Level or Cold Laser Therapy has been in existence for more than 25 years and is a huge part of my practice. Bioflex laser therapy utilizes specific types of light to interact with tissue. It can eliminate pain and promote healing for a variety of medical conditions. Laser therapy offers patients a safe and effective therapy for a wide range of medical conditions, including soft tissue and sports injuries, arthritic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, wound healing and a variety of general health problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser or light therapy (LLLT), is the use of light from a low intensity laser diode or an array of Superluminous Diodes to eliminate pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. LLLT is also known as cold laser, low intensity laser therapy or photobiomodulation.

Laser therapy does not heat or cut tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. Many pharmacological treatments mask pain or only address the symptoms of the disease; laser Therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of laser therapy are long lasting.

Laser therapy eliminates pain, reduces the need for pharmaceuticals, restores normal range of motion and physical function, is non-invasive, and non-toxic. There are no known adverse effects, no drug interactions and often makes surgical interventions unnecessary. It provides a treatment alternative for patients that have not responded to conventional therapies.
Laser therapy increases the production and release of endorphins (natural analgesics), cortisol (precursor of cortisone), growth hormone (instrumental in tissue repair), and ATP (improves and regulates cellular metabolism). It also increases protein synthesis of collagen, DNA and fibroblasts, facilitates venous and lymphatic flow, increases angiogenesis (elevation of oxygen saturation), enhances immune response, as well as a number of other effects.
Treatment times range between 15 minutes to over an hour depending on the condition and area being treated.
The number of treatments will vary with regard to the individual problem as every patient and condition responds to Laser Therapy uniquely. In a recent clinical report on over 1,000 patients treated with the BioFlex Professional Laser Therapy System, patients averaged slightly less than 10 treatments to resolve their condition. In some patients, 1 treatment is sufficient; however, a range of 3 – 25 treatments can be required. In some cases, additional maintenance treatments may be recommended.
Insurance coverage for laser therapy varies depending on the professional designation and/or qualifications of the therapist and the insurance plan.
Hundreds of research studies have shown laser therapy to be safe and effective. Laser Therapy is non-invasive, non-toxic and non-thermal. Unlike other forms of radiation, laser therapy is beneficial rather than harmful to tissue.
Yes. laser therapy should be avoided in the following instances: over the womb for women in their first trimester of pregnancy and over cancerous tumours.
Meditech International Inc. is highly active in studying the clinical applications of laser therapy, particularly for conditions where current medical approaches are ineffective.
BioFlex Laser Therapy is able to influence the pathology directly at the cellular level, resulting in therapeutic benefits that are long lasting and address the underlying condition or pathology. This is unlike many other conventional treatments which treat only the symptoms or site of pain, without addressing the source of pain.
BioFlex Laser Therapy is being used by an increasing number of physicians, physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, naturopaths and dentists across Canada, the United States, Europe, South America and Asia. Meditech Laser Rehabilitation Clinic currently performs over 800 laser treatments a week, and that number is steadily increasing.

The BioFlex Laser Therapy Systems have also been used by a number of sports professionals: The Toronto Raptors, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Miami Heat, the Canadian National Ballet Company and other high performance organizations.
