Learn About Polychromatic Light Therapy
Polychromatic light therapy (PLT) is the simultaneous use of two or more wavelengths of light (color) provided from light emitting diodes (LEDs). The effect of PLT on cells is called photobiomodulation (PBM).
Light from these special light emitting diodes penetrate tissue to different depths. This light is naturally absorbed by the cells to assist in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is energy required for cell repair and regeneration.
Different from single wavelengths of light, the unique benefit of polychromatic light is the synergistic effect of infrared (IR) with either blue or red allowing both colors to penetrate tissue more deeply than in a monochromatic application.
More importantly, PLT energy application also facilitates the release of nitric oxide, supporting the body with improved circulation and pain relief. Improved circulation (blood flow) is one of the most vital components of the healing process.
Light, whether from the sun or from technology, is absorbed by the skin and triggers beneficial biological changes at the cellular level. These changes are unique to photobiomodulation. Light therapy pads allow you to target the area of concern. to help restore and improve health and vitality.
Benefits of Polychromatic Light Therapy
Scientific evidence demonstrates PLT as having beneficial responses on many conditions including:
• Wound healing
• Arthritis pain
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Mood disorders
• Back pain, neck pain, and joint pain
• Traumatic brain injuries
• Acne, wrinkles, and hair loss
• Muscle performance, fatigue, and recovery
• Muscle sprains and strains
• Sports injuries
• Bruises and swelling
Light Therapy in Your Session
Thought only for use by medical personnel, you can now experience the benefits of pain relief in any session I offer in-person. Light therapy pads come in many sizes and shapes to fit almost anywhere on the body – along the spine (for injury or recovery from surgery), around feet and legs (for neuropathy), around wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees (for joint pain), or even around your head (for traumatic brain injury), or over the eyes.
Animals love the healing effects of light therapy, too.
I offer multiple pads working together for 20 minutes. If more time is needed, we can schedule light therapy as a priority and work it into your session for two or even three 20-minute sessions.
As an adjunct to your energy healing session, there’s no extra charge.
If you prefer to have a session that exclusively uses light therapy, we can do that! Whether for you or your animal, light therapy is a wonderful healing tool to help speed recovery, reduce inflammation, and provide many benefits of PTL.
