I am very appreciative of the opportunity to meet Anne and learn this wonderful modality of therapy to assist clients in their wellness journey. I am excited and looking forward to start providing laser therapies to clients as well as receiving them myself. I so enjoyed meeting staff from other departments and the enthusiasm everyone had. I believe it could also foster collaborative relationships within out departments and help integrate referrals and practices for the patients in our clinics. Integrative health is becoming more and more sought after by patients. This is another example of how lucky we all are to work and be cared for in a community that strives to be innovative and in the forefront of new and leading edge advancements and technology in health and wellness. Thank you.

Anne Made you feel right at home. With having not been a smoker I was wondering how I would relate to treating patients that are. With my massage background and the relaxation aspect was very similar to how I give a massage. I feel that the Laser treatment is very beneficial to all and can make a world of difference. After my first class room setting for receiving the Laser treatment for weight loss I slept better and was very relaxed after.

I am very appreciative to be able to become certified Laser Therapy Technician. Being able to provide this alternative therapy to my diabetes patients is priceless. Medications are not always the answer and Laser Therapy could be important part of their care plan. Anne Penman Laser Therapy training was hosted by Anne Penman herself. She is a very bright lady that filled us with knowledge as well as gave us hope that we can make a difference in the SMSC community.

What a great learning experience with Anne Penman! It was wonderful to learn about a non-invasive, no side effect option to help people with smoking, pain, stress, etc. It is exciting to know that after the training that I could be a catalyst to helping others improve their lives. It was great to get to experience first-hand the relaxing effects of the laser on even the first try! The training was wonderful, informative and most of all inspiring to be in a training group with such wonderful same-minded women!

I attended Anne Penman 3-day Laser Therapy training. I thoroughly enjoyed this training. Anne explains things so everyone can understand the concept of laser treatments. She did a wonderful job at trouble shooting different scenario and personalities of patients coming in for treatment. I was very skeptical at first but once I learned about this therapy and had an opportunity to receive it I am truly a believer of the benefits laser therapy can help patients. I am very grateful for this wonderful opportunity to learn such a great skill and meet such a wonderful women and mentor.

I have used my hand held cold laser for several years and had some nice results. Working with the Thor cold Laser was very interesting and I think it will open many doors that my small laser is unable to open. In my practice the weight loss protocol would fall right into place. I see many patients for nutritional consult, most want to feel better, but the desire to lose weight is a big component as well. Many struggle with their cravings and feel they can’t win. They try and try again. I had the weight loss protocol done twice on me to see if it would affect my cravings. I have to say food didn’t look as good and my appetite was decreased as well. I can see how we could help patients get through the toughest first few weeks with the laser therapy. I am excited about the possibilities and can’t wait to use the laser in our clinical setting.

I have had the privilege of using Anne Penman’s protocols for Smoking Cessation, Stress Management and Weight Loss for the past 5 years here at the Wellness Center. In that time, I have been able to see amazing results with each program. The laser program offers a wellness approach and our goal is to help clients empower themselves to make the lifestyle change needed to live a healthier lifestyle. Having Anne Penman here at SMSC was a wonderful experience. Her knowledge and expertise truly inspired me and reconfirmed how valuable this laser program is and will be in the future.
