Light Therapy (LED)

Phototherapy uses specific light frequencies to influence the body. 

Red Ibis

Light Spectrum 640nm

Red Light Therapy 

Red light strengthens the mitochondria, the part of the cell that creates energy. By doing so, this procedure increases energy levels.

Fluffy White Clouds

Light Spectrum 415nm

Blue Light Therapy

It is postulated that blue light is useful in treating inflammatory acne, as the blue light affects  reactive free radicals that exert bactericidal effects on P. acnes. (ie. kills the bacteria often associated with acne.) 

Integrative Approach

At times it is useful to try one treatment at a time, while at other times, different healing modalities can be complimentary. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment (acupuncture/ herbal formula's) will aim to treat the skin by increasing overall health according to imbalances identified in the consult. If you are looking for comprehensive support, consider booking in for a consult for acupuncture or herbal medicine as well as for light therapy.
