What is light therapy?
Light therapy has been shown in over 50 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful benefits to living tissues and organisms. Visible red, blue and “invisible” infrared light have been shown to effect at least 24 positive changes at the cellular level.
These studies also have shown that light energy causes biologic effects based on the knowledge that specific proteins absorb different wavelengths. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are a form of light energy that is a relatively recent outgrowth from the laser industry. LEDs are similar to lasers inasmuch as they have the same effects but differ in the way that the light energy is delivered. LED disperses light (red, blue or infrared) over a greater surface area; this tends to result in shorter session times for a given area. LED light is a safe, noninvasive way to ‘enlighten' cells.
