Corrective Light Therapy
Since ancient times, it has been very well recognized that the human body reacts positively to light and that light can influence a number of important physiological processes varying from wound healing to pain control and mood regulation. Biochemical research indicate that human tissues contain a protein, cryptochrome, which reacts positively to light.
As a part of our integrative approach, we offers corrective light therapy which harmonizes body functions via exposure of specific body areas to light. The procedure uses incoherent polychromatic LED’s running at 480-780nm.
The main applications of corrective light therapy include:
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy or regional pain syndrome
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Sport-related trauma or injuries
- Pain due to shingles (post-herpetic neuralgia)
- Poorly-healed wounds
- Chronic infections
- Interstitial cystitis
- Anxiety disorder
A typical protocol incorporates 8-10 1-hour sessions 2-3 times a week.
