Photo energy from light therapy has been shown to:

  • Dilate the blood under the vessels, which often causes an increase in circulation
  • Increase lymphatic drainage
  • Decrease stress

Additionally, patients and clients may experience:

  • Decrease in local swelling
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Decreased muscle spasms and tightness
  • Decreased tension
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased venous dilation and flow
  • Diabetic patients and clients with peripheral neuropathy typically may experience an increase in sensation to pressure and hot/cold.
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Soothing of ACNE
  • Decrease appearance of age spot or sun induced skin pigmentation
  • Increased Circulation
  • Peaceful Sleep
  • Expedited recovery of post surgical conditions, bruises and infections
  • Increased energy
  • Decreased appearance of Scar Tissue

Light Therapy and the Benefits of Light

Why light?

Because we're surrounded by light, it's easy to take for granted. Light streams photons to our bodies – tiny packets of energy with a number of beneficial effects such as restoring balance to the system.

What is light therapy?

Light Emitting Diode (LED) light therapy is an outgrowth from the laser industry, but with the benefit of covering a greater surface area in a shorter period of time.

LED light therapy process

LED light therapy is a process by which energy is delivered by the cells for therapeutic benefits. The various energy wavelengths penetrate the skin to different depths and provide the energy cells need to activate increased circulation and stimulate to release Nitric Oxide. NASA's studies have shown that cells which have been exposed to LED light therapy have a 150% enhancement to their cellular metabolism, thereby accelerating repair and replenishment.

There are volumes of scientific studies available on light therapy. The following is just a sample list of institutions that have conducted clinical studies on the effectiveness of LED Light Therapy over the last several decades:

  • National Cancer Institute
  • Mayo Clinic, Jeffrey Basford, MD
  • Stanford University, Kendric C. Smith
  • Massachusetts General Hospital, Wellman Labs
  • NASA, Dr. Harry T. Whelan
  • Marshall Space Flight Center
  • University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C.
  • University of Colorado, Dr. Thomas Burke, PhD
