With over 4000 published medical studies done on the effect of light therapy, its value as a therapeutic aid in healing is undisputed. Widespread research has studied conditions such as tendon, muscle and ligament injuries, non-healing ulcers, fungal infections, nerve regeneration, peripheral neuropathy, insomnia, depression, headaches, chronic pain, scarring, bacterial and viral infections to name but a few ….

What Scientific Research Backs up Red Light (Photonic) Therapy?
History of technology: The healing power of light has been around since ancient times. A Nobel Prize was awarded to Niels Ryberg Finsen over 100 years ago for his advancements in the use of red light therapy in treating smallpox and lupus outbreaks in the late 1890’s.
More recently, leading scientists and physicians have been learning and advancing the use of laser-based light therapy for multiple practical health applications – including wound healing in zero gravity to expedite the healing process for astronauts.
