Light Therapy

What is Light Therapy? 


A form of treatment that has been independently studied for more than 40 years worldwide. Visible and infrared light have been shown to affect positive therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms on a cellular level. Lumen's equipment offers 7 specific settings to promote different levels of tissue healing and regeneration.

Pain and inflammation can arise in people as a result of disease-based conditions, physical trauma, work-related stresses, training, or other high performance activities. When looking for long-term solutions to these problems, many traditional western medical practitioners have been recommending the use of light energy therapy. Clinical tests have been conducted by NASA, Stanford University, and the Mayo Clinic, proving that light energy, or photon therapy, is able to help relieve pain and inflammation.

Light energy therapy stimulates the natural healing power of the cells in your body. Photon therapy is a simple, effective, non-pharmacological medical alternative to prescription medicine or invasive surgery. In many cases the management of acute or chronic injuries and post operative wounds now includes the use of photon therapy because it is quick, cost-effective, and easy to administer. Photon therapy is widely used in human medicine in many cosmetic applications.

Lumen Photon Therapy is happy to provide a new system of photodynamic therapy products utilizing state-of-the-art technology, that can help provide a complete and lasting resolution of many health issues when coupled with a medical diagnosis. All InLight products are designed to help activate the natural healing processes in the body and can be used in the home, office, or while traveling.

Our products use safe, super-luminous light emitting diodes (LED's) to produce photons at different wavelengths in the near-infrared/visible red spectrums. The FDA has approved these powerful, conveniently-sized models as capable of offering:

  •  Increased local circulation (important for people with restricted circulation in the extremities)
  •  Reduction of pain (neck, back, joint, etc.)


Frequencies and Quick Use

                                               Product Frequencies:

Information Used from Gerald Cartier "Guide to Low Energy Photon Therapy"
Anatomical Function
73 Hz
For stimulation of osteoid and use when cellular activity is hypoactive, such as chronic recurring problems, nonunion fractures, or chronic splints. It is also helpful in activating humoral and endocrine functions. (Field work has shown setting 1 helpful in stimulating (tonifying) acupuncture and trigger points and increasing circulation in areas being treated, such as wounds when past the acute stage.)
147 Hz

For areas of yellow scar tissue that are generally formed internally on tendons, ligaments, and sub-acute (lingering but chronic) conditions. (Field use has shown setting 2 to be helpful in reducing inflammation associated with injuries and infections.) This is often called the "universal frequency" because most problems involve inflammation.

294 Hz

For tissue of ectodermal origin, such as body openings, skin, and nerves. (Field applications include wounds, eye injuries, and after surgery. Setting 3 tends to tone tissue while minimizing the chance of hemorrhaging fresh wounds or recent surgical sites.) It is also good for the treatment of acupuncture and trigger points, corneal ulcers, and ulcerated mucous membranes. This is called the "universal frequency" in acupuncture.

587 Hz
For circulatory and lymphatic stimulation and treatment of tissue of endodermal origin. (In field applications, setting 4 has been used in conjunction with 5 and 2 for tendon, ligament, joint and other injuries where reaching secondary levels of tissue needed.)
1174 Hz
For tissue of mesodermal origin, such as bone, ligament, viscera, and tendon. (Field experience has shown setting 5 to be especially good for tendon and ligament injuries when used with 4 and 2.) It also helps in relaxing large muscle groups.
2349 Hz

For chronic conditions not responsive to setting 3 or 5. (Field experience shows setting 6 to be a good supplement to 3 when healing processes appear to reach a plateau.)

4698 Hz

For pain control, primarily when C nerve fibers are transmitting to dorsal root ganglia and when involvement of neurotransmitters is of physiological importance. (Field experience shows 7 to help suppress pain and to sedate acupuncture and trigger points and aids in diminishing excess calcification associated with chips, spurs and arthritic conditions.

General Rule: When stimulation is required, use lower frequencies. When sedation is required, use higher frequencies.
