At Stratford Acupuncture & Nutritional Wellness Center, we are always looking for new ways to help effectively treat our patients at all levels, not just with acupuncture or nutrition. This is why we are now proud to offer Celluma Low-Level Light Therapy to our list of services here.
While light therapy is an excellent tool to combat concerns like aging and acne, the whole-body benefits that near-infrared light therapy provides go way beyond skin deep. Many people don’t realize how effective light therapy can be for pain management. With an estimated 20% of adults in America suffering from chronic pain, we’ve seen how chronic pain affects our mental health as well; which can lead to opioid dependency, anxiety, and depression.
What is Infrared Light Therapy?
LED light therapy utilizes three types of wavelengths; Blue, Red, and Near-Infrared. Blue and Red light therapy provide great aesthetic benefits such as acne treatment and increased collagen production, which helps in anti-aging treatments. Infrared, specifically near-infrared offers a whole new set of medical benefits that are clinically proven to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface layer to target muscle and joint pain at the source, providing much-needed relief for people who suffer from inflammation and injury.
How Does Light Therapy for Pain Work?
Low-level light therapy uses specifically proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level. Infrared light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to accelerate the natural repair of compromised tissue cells, foster cell production, and restore homeostasis within the body.
Pain can be short-term or long-term, and because it presents itself differently in every person, it can be extremely difficult to treat. Celluma’s unique and superior device design offers pain-relieving therapeutic benefits equal to or better than more powerful and expensive devices, making all-natural pain management a very real possibility for all people who suffer from pain.
Free from harmful chemicals and the risk of dependency, light therapy is a more natural method of healing your body from the inside out. Rather than simply masking pain, this light therapy works to treat the underlying condition, enhancing tissue repair and performance, allowing your body to perform at an optimal level of health and wellness. Celluma activates pain-relieving pathways. This decreases pain and inflammation and increases tissue regeneration in the localized area.
