What is LED Phototherapy?

Light Therapy is not a new or fleeting science.  The benefits on the human body and mind have been recognised in the medical arena for well over 30 years.  Furthermore evidence can be seen that the benefits of light therapy have been known for thousands of years and originate from ancient Egypt, Greece and China.  Light helps us produce vitamin D, stimulates growth , promotes wellbeing and makes our skin glow. A Danish physician, Dr. Niels Finsen received the Nobel prize in 1903 for the research in the treatment of certain skin conditions with light. In the 1960’s experiments were undertaken for photo bio stimulation and the benefit of red light was discovered.  The first steps to treating skin conditions with LED ( light emitting diodes) were undertaken by NASA as a result of the positive effect of LED on wound healing and tissue growth in space.  Phototherapy occurs naturally all around us and our skin has the ability to absorb light energy and to stimulate or regulate cell processes
