LLLT for Radiation Dermatitis


Therapeutic lasers work on the cellular level, enhancing the fundamental functions of the cells. This means that any pathological condition theoretically can be improved, if the suitable
wavelength and energy of light is applied. This is the beauty of laser phototherapy, but also the problem: how can one single therapy be used in so many situations?

Light as a Broad-Spectrum Antimicrobial


The ideal tool for preventing radiodermatitis is an agent that mediates DNA repair or promotes cell proliferation. Application of a low-power laser has been shown to promote tissue repair by reducing inflammation and inducing collagen synthesis. Moreover, this treatment approach has not been associated with adverse events and is cost-effective.

Blue Light – Good or Bad?


Therapeutic blue light uses the natural power and qualities of the sunlight, which science now knows is a wavelength between around 400nm and 500nm.

Modulated Light vs Sunlight


We can now use the good wavelengths (colors is deliverer by wavelengths) and leave out the harmful wavelengths. We has engineered delivery of the beneficial wavelengths from sunlight and modulated it into Low Level Light Therapy technology.

What the heck is Photopuncture?


Photopuncture™: Using a Light Therapy device with a focused beam (sold as Torches, hand held Lights, etc.) to specifically activate energy points (aka acupoints) along the acupuncture meridians.


This beautiful boy is a 6 year old testimony for Light Therapy. 2 years ago he was in the top 5 Cardigan Corgis in the US when he went to Canada to get his Intl. Championship. While on the trip back, he tore his ACL badly. The local vet immediately called for surgery to knit the 2 ends of the ACL together. However, his owner knew that surgery would shorten his stride on that side.

So we over-nighted a light therapy wrap to Montana, and she began lighting up both hind legs twice a day. When she got back to Tucson, he also got swim therapy on a regular basis. Within the year he was back on top. Here he is winning a Group 1! (die hard dog show people know what that means).
