Dr. Wise's Current Clinical Trials

CLRT on Hamstring Function

This pilot study will address the immediate effect of Cranial Laser Reflex Technique (CLRT) on the flexibility, strength, and pain pressure threshold of the hamstring muscle in healthy young adults. CLRT is a Complementary and Alternative (CAM) intervention that incorporates principles of laser acupuncture with chiropractic cranial reflexology. Stimulating the reflex with a low-level laser may affect the tonus, pain, and strength of the target muscle and improve muscle function.

Transcranial PBM on Stress Response

This study will address the effect of transcranial photobiomodulation (PBM) on stress physiology as measured by heart rate variability (HRV), electroencephalogram (EEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in healthy adults.  This study uses low-level laser stimulation on the CLRT chronic stress point, hypothesizing that it will cause a shift towards parasympathetic activity and modification of the acute stress response with reduced frontal asymmetry.
