Decreasing Pain

Light energy decreases pain and inflammation by reducing the excitability of nerve tissue, decreasing tissue tension and inducing Nitric Oxide (the body’s major vasodilator) production at the site of the pad placement.

Light-emitting diode therapy reduces persistent inflammatory pain: Role of interleukin 10 and antioxidant enzymes. Martins DF1, Turnes BL2, Cidral-Filho FJ3, Bobinski F4, Rosas RF5, Danielski LG6, Petronilho F6, Santos AR4. Author information Abstract BACKGROUND: During the last decades, the use of light-emitting diode therapy (LEDT) has increased significantly for the treatment of wound healing, analgesia and inflammatory processes. Nevertheless, scientific data on the mechanisms responsible for the therapeutic effect of LEDT are still insufficient. Thus, this study...

Chronic Low Back Pain and LED vs. Low Level Laser

Posted in Athletic Performance & Injury Recovery, Decreasing Pain, News & Research

J Lasers Med Sci. 2015 Fall;6(4):157-61. doi: 10.15171/jlms.2015.11. Epub 2015 Oct 27. Monochromatic Infrared Photo Energy Versus Low Level Laser Therapy in Chronic Low Back Pain. Ammar TA1. Author information Abstract INTRODUCTION: Low back pain (LBP) is the most common musculoskeletal disease. Monochromatic infrared photo energy (MIPE) and low level laser therapy (LLLT) are light modalities used to reduce pain and increase blood flow. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of the MIPE and LLLT in reducing functional disability and pain as well as improving lumbar range of motion (ROM) in patients with chronic LBP. METHODS: Seventy participants with LBP...

How Clients Responded To Light at the Therapeutic Learning Center of Utah

Posted in De-Stressing The Mind & Body, Decreasing Pain, News & Research

What has been observed and documented at The Therapeutic Learning Center of Utah on 586 patients with use of the Shine With Light’s system in the spring of 2014.  Typical patients experienced 20 minute B setting sessions of light during the study time period.   A minimum of 4 sessions was typical.  Their blood was tested before and after and charts reviewed. 56 patients reported acceleration of the healing processes of wounds, burns, and skin issues like pustules. 148 patients reported 50 to 75% reduction in pain. 220 patients were able to discontinue their anti-depressant medication while under direct supervision. 20 patients that experienced social anxiety...

The Miracle Molecule You Make With Light

Posted in Blog, Decreasing Pain, Increasing Circulation, News & Research

What is the Miracle Molecule You Make With The Right Light? When red and infrared wavelengths of light – the exact range of our standard pads – shine into the body in an area of circulation the body responds by releasing more of a signalling hormone that opens up the flow of blood and lymph and dilates blood vessels and arteries.  This signalling hormone is called Nitric Oxide.  This is not Nitrous Oxide, the “laughing gas” that you receive at the dentist.  Nitric Oxide is far more important. Dr. Christine Northrup MD says “‘I have come to see Nitric Oxide as the physical expression of Prana – your life force.   It is the “Wow” molecule...

Proprioception – Keeping the brain to the body connection open

Posted in Aligning Brain and Body - Proprioception, Athletic Performance & Injury Recovery, Decreasing Pain, Increasing Circulation

Alignment With Light This is a wonderful article about how the alignment of our body from our teeth down is affected by light energy.  This is a powerful way to undo pain patterns in the body and keep the connection between brain and body flowing.  We have personally found this particularly effective for back pain, sciatica, nerve health, knee pain, shoulder pain, TMJ, and neck pain.  This is a profound way to use light energy to help the body align and shine....
