How Does it Work?

When a cell is damaged, whether from age, sickness or injury, molecules or particles of matter are out of their normal resonance or vibratory pattern. By repeatedly exposing damaged tissue to the normal resonance frequencies associated with that tissue, healing often occurs, sometimes quite rapidly.

What Happens?

First, we place the LED Photo Pulsation Pads directly on the skin in the affected area. This includes all areas of the body from the top of the head down to the toes. Next, we turn on the system and switch to the therapy needed for your specific treatment. The total treatment takes 20 minutes.

What Can Light Therapy Do for You?

  • Increase circulation by increasing the formation of new capillaries, additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones.  New capillaries speed up the healing process. They carry oxygen and other key nutrients required for healing to the cells. They also carry more waste products away from the cells.
  • Stimulate the production of collagen, most common protein found in the body.  Collagen, an essential protein in the healing process, repairs damaged tissues and replaces old tissue.  It holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity.  By increasing collagen production, less scar tissue forms at the damaged site.
  • Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells.  Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid of waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell.    Therefore, ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reaction of the cell.
  • Increase lymphatic system activity. Oedema, which is the swelling or natural splinting process of the body, has two basic components. The first is a liquid part, which the blood system evacuates, and the second is comprised of the proteins that the lymphatic system evacuates. Research has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of light therapy. The venous diameter and the arterial diameters can also be increased. This means that both parts of oedema (liquid and protein) evacuate at a much faster rate to relieve swelling.
