What is Light Therapy?
Light (photon) therapy is very safe healing method converting light energy to cellular energy for natural rejuvenation. It has been proven effective for a wide range of health issues.

"NASA space technology shines a new light on healing"
LED-technology developed for NASA plant growth experiments, showed great promise for delivering light deep into human tissues and promoting rapid healing. LEDs help heal injuries to astronauts during their space flights and resolve one of the major effects of long-term space flights muscle and bone atrophy. It has been shown that injuries that occurs while in space tend not to heal until astronauts return to earth’s gravity.
Over the last 35 years NASA conducted a multiple studies and through its research provide a validity and effectiveness of using LED lights. Benefits of light therapy have been verified by many independent studies and applied by researchers and highly respected scientists and physicians worldwide.
Light therapy is using an LEDs (light emitting diodes) safe concentrated light source and its wavelengths to penetrate deep into the skin tissue, muscles, joints and even bones.
The combination of different lights (red, blue and green) has been proven to be highly absorbable in living tissues, which produces unique therapeutic effects.
It increase circulation, ease pain and accelerate the healing process, repair damaged tissue, mends injuries and helps prevent infection.
Light Therapy stimulates fibroblast & collagen production, smooths skin texture and improves skin firmness.
Deep penetrating light has the ability to repair damaged cells more quickly by increasing RNA and DNA synthesis. The light absorbed by the cells stimulates metabolism in muscle, bone and skin tissue as well promoting wound healing and decreases inflammation.
Cells exposed to LED light have been found to grow 150% to 200% faster than cells not exposed.
Healing power of light with the help of technology developed for NASA Space Shuttle is one of the major focus of doctors at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
“So far, what we’ve seen in patients and what we’ve seen in laboratory cell cultures, all point to one conclusion,” said Dr. Harry Whelan, professor of pediatric neurology and director of hyperbaric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. “The nearinfrared light emitted by these LEDs seems to be perfect for increasing energy inside cells. This means whether you’re on Earth in a hospital, working in a submarine under the sea or on your way to Mars inside a spaceship, the LEDs boost energy to the cells and accelerate healing.”
FDA accepted, developed by NASA.
“In these ground-breaking therapies, light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, most often are used to apply concentrated doses of light to patients, “It represents a quantum leap in medicine,”
(Harry T. Whelan, M.D., who is a professor of neurology and a leading researcher in the field.)
The wavelength stimulates healing process by:
- Increasing circulation by boosting the formation of capillaries which delivers more oxygen throughout the body speeding up healing and cell regeneration.
- Blocking pain transmitting chemicals resulting in a natural and drug-free form of analgesia (painkiller)
- Triggering the production of endorphins which helps to facilitate long term pain relief, increasing energy.
- Relieving swelling by increasing lymphatic system activity.
- Stimulating the release of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) which is major carrier of energy to the cells.
- Replacing damaged cells more quickly by increasing RNA and DNA synthesis.
Both visible red, blue and “invisible” infrared light have been shown to effect at last 24 different positive changes at the cellular level. Light therapy causes biological effects because different wavelengths are absorbed by specific proteins.
Mechanism of Action:
“In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, LEDs can trigger natural intracellular photo-biochemical reactions. To have any effect on a living biological system, LED-emitted photons must be absorbed by a molecular chromophore or photoreceptor. Light, at appropriate doses and wavelengths, is absorbed by chromophores such as porphyrins, flavins, and other light-absorbing entities within the mitochondria and cell membranes.
