Light Therapy for Body applies LED light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. With a wide range of benefits, Light Therapy treats skin, muscle, joint and pain conditions anywhere on the body; and repairs and revitalizes aged, injured, or diseased cells.
Light Therapy for Body treats the underlying condition by boosting cellular energy which leads to an increase in micro-circulation, tissue repair, and a decrease in inflammation and pain. This service encourages and enhances the body’s natural healing abilities, rather than simply masking the problem.
Light Therapy is safe, effective, drug-free, and non-invasive. There are no harmful UV rays or side effects, and absolutely no downtime. Light Therapy is FDA cleared for acne, arthritic pain, compromised blood flow & circulation, inflammation, muscle & joint pain, muscle & joint stiffness, muscle spasms, and muscle tissue tension; and has been reported to help improve many other conditions.
Our Light Therapy system has the most advanced technology available. It has three clinically proven wavelengths that are used synergistically during the treatments.
Blue Light is known for its antibacterial properties and is used for treating acne; Blue Light kills the bacteria that causes breakouts, while reducing the inflammation, pimples and redness associated with acne. It treats existing acne breakouts, while also helping to prevent future breakouts.
Red Light helps to combat a wide variety of side effects of the aging process by effectively generating more collagen in the body. Healthy collagen levels are essential in keeping muscles, joints, and tendons in healthy working order. It also gives us a glowing complexion, firm skin, strong nails, dense bones, and healthy hair.
Near Infrared Light is a modern approach to chronic pain management. Near Infrared Light works to treat the underlying condition, enhances tissue repair and performance, and allows your body to perform at an optimal level of health and wellness. Using Near Infrared Light for pain, is a natural method of healing your body from the inside out; and is free from harmful chemicals and the risk of dependency.
We offer the following Light Therapy for Body Services:
Pain Relief Therapy
Near Infrared Light helps to relieve pain for conditions such as arthritis; carpal tunnel syndrome; damaged tissue; overly intense workouts; muscle & joint pain/stiffness; muscle spasms; neck & shoulder pain; sprains; and TMJ.
Post-Operative and Bruise & Wound Healing
Red Light gives cells extra energy which can speed up the body’s healing process after injury or surgery.
Sagging & Flaccid Skin/Skin Firming & Tightening
Red Light stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which can help to tighten and firm the skin.
Red Light increases blood circulation and cellular energy which can lead to improvements with stretch marks, scarring and cellulite.
Red Light reduces inflammation which makes it very useful for skin conditions involving inflammation such as dermatitis and psoriasis.
Skin Discoloration & Sun Damage
When Red Light gets absorbed into skin cells, it can have a positive effect on the cell’s fibroblasts, and this could help reduce signs of photoaging caused by years of sun damage and the normal ageing process.
Depression & Mood
Red Light can have an uplifting effect on one’s mental outlook, giving some relief to depression and anxiety.
Body Acne Therapy
Blue Light is used for treating acne on the body. It helps to minimize lesions; and is a more natural, chemical-free alternative than acne prescription medications. Look forward to a clearer, smoother, more radiant complexion.
How To Schedule
The number of sessions needed varies from person to person depending on the severity of the condition; whether the condition is chronic or non-chronic; how long the condition has existed; how quickly one responds to the treatments; and, if protocols are followed. Just like working out and exercising, the benefits of Light Therapy are cumulative. So, for best results, schedule your sessions 2 – 3 times per week. All sessions are 30 minutes in duration. Best results are obtained on skin free of clothing, lotion, makeup, or anything else that would deflect the light. Freshly washed skin is recommended for best results.
Protocol for Chronic Conditions
Purchase a series of 6 or a series of 12 to start. Schedule treatments 2 – 3 times per week for 2 – 3 weeks, until optimal results are obtained then switch to Maintenance Protocol.
Individual results will determine the optimal frequency. Schedule regular biweekly or monthly treatments.
Protocol for Non-Chronic Conditions
Start with a series of 6 or a series of 12. Schedule treatments 2 – 3 times per week for 2 – 3 weeks until optimal results are obtained.
On your first visit, you will need to decide if you want to treat one or two areas of the body each session. This decision depends on the size of the area you are treating; or if you want to treat two different conditions or areas of the body simultaneously.
One Area - 30 minutes
Series of 6
Series of 12
Two Areas - 30 minutes
Series of 6
Series of 12
Light Therapy for Body is suitable for everyone except for those who have epilepsy; photosensitivity or photo-immune disorders such as lupus or porphyria; lupus erythematosus; and those taking medications that amplify their photosensitivity (must be off these medications for 6 months). Always check with your doctor if you are unsure of medication you are taking. Those who are pregnant or breast feeding, should not treat chest/stomach areas. Those with a history of cancer should check with their doctor.
Body Lymphatic Drainage (machine)
Lymphatic drainage helps to increase metabolism, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, alleviate body aches and fatigue, and reduce fluid retention. Start with a therapeutic Swiss shower to warm and prepare the body for the treatment. We use high-quality body care products that contain lavender, sage and rosemary which help to detoxify, heal, and increase circulation. The finish has either a nourishing or firming focus depending on your skin’s needs.
