Light Therapy or Phototherapy

Consists of exposure to specific wavelengths of light using lasers, LEDs, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light, for a prescribed amount of time. It has proven effective in treating Acne vulgaris, seasonal affective disorder, and for some people it has ameliorated delayed sleep phase syndrome. It has recently been shown effective in non-seasonal depression. Proponents claim demonstrable benefits for skin conditions such as psoriasis and, more controversially, a degree of “skin rejuvenation.”

Exposure to whole spectrum light is the controlled exposure to sunlight, full-spectrum, ultraviolet, colored, or laser light as a treatment for chronic pain and depression, or to stimulate the immune system. Associated with a stronger immune system response, as well as, prevention of cancer, fatigue, carbohydrate cravings, insomnia, bulimia, PMS, SAD, migraines and memory disturbances. Especially beneficial during the dark months of winter. Also, different colored light bulbs can be used on the chakra system and the secondary vortices.
