The light force therapy originated back in the 1960s, with Jana Sullivan developed a prototype of a hand-held device that would eventually become the initial product of “Light Force Therapy.”Based on technology from photo-stimulation, the new process used light emitting diodes to produce beams of light at specified frequencies and wavelengths.
Her photo-stimulation, also-called LED therapy, was developed to relieve acute and chronic pain that occurred from disease and injury. It also increased circulation and decreased inflammation, which is associated with joint pain preventing range of motion. The Light Force Therapy offers hope for anyone with chronic pain, such as degenerative disease or arthritis, or even sprained ankles.
Cleared with FDA approval, Light Force Therapy is marked for therapeutic use on both animals and humans for pain relief, especially as its original purpose was for the pain of horses. Either way, the Light Force Therapy stimulates the body’s ability to relieve pain by using the power and energy of light. This process uses the activity of certain cell components, and is considered a simple and effective way to control pain, in a non-pharmaceutical manner.
A study on the control of wounds in bruises was done in Kenyan STD/HIV/AIDS patients with the use of the light emitting diodes used in Light Force Therapy. Scientific evidence in this area has shown there are two main sources of single wavelength light–both laser and light emitting diodes–as studies have demonstrated that the human cell actually responds better to the single wavelength of light, in comparison to multiple wavelengths. What happens in Light Force Therapy is a multitude of physiological changes occur in the body. The real advantage came when working with children, as with this therapy no needles, cutting or swallowing were involved. The flashing lights were fun for the children as they thought it was a game and exciting.
The Light Force Therapy methodology is a light unit developed into a hand-held machine, with 48 red and infrared LEDs, and eight frequency settings. The unit is held near the injured skin area, whether it is a bruise, open wound, or sore for about 10 to 15 minutes per area. Additionally, a one-minute application was placed on other body area–the palm of the hand, the soles of the feet, the ears, and the stomach. This EPS system opens up the meridians and reflexology points for the entire body, boosting the entire immune system to clear energy blockages–a treatment similar to acupuncture.
