Our latest way to care for your body!
Recently I invested in Celluma Light Therapy products for the office. These FDA-cleared medical devices emit low level light therapy and were created based on the technology developed by NASA to heal astronauts when they were injured in space. Utilizing low level light therapy produces a natural photo-biochemical reaction in your cells, similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, and has a wide range of beneficial applications across many medical fields, including the treatment of skin, muscle, joint and pain conditions. As some of you may know, I had shingles two years ago. I was not vaccinated for shingles because I felt I was too young and while I was having active pain diagnosis was delayed. Consequently, it became something called Post-Herpetic Neuralgia. PHN is when the rash resolves but the nerve pain remains due to damage the virus causes to the nerve root. I am amazed at the amount of time required to fully heal. Nerve healing is slow and often spontaneous. Even now, I'm still dealing with the repercussions. Recently, I tried Celluma Light Therapy on myself, in the area that I've been experiencing lingering issues from shingles. I have had amazing results from the regular application of light therapy. I've had physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and massages to try to alleviate some of my symptoms, while all helpful, Celluma Light Therapy is helping me over the final healing hurdle.
Celluma Light Therapy works by effecting cells. Celluma can be used by anyone (including pets!) because it only is absorbed by cells that need the light to repair. It does not damage cells that are in tact and functioning properly. Light provides the energy needed for repair. There are a host of possiblities for the application of light therapy. Most of Celluma's devices emit 3 wavelengths of light.
Blue light is used to treat acne. Red light is used to as an anti-aging and wrinkle treatment. Near Infrared light is used to treat pain. Celluma can also be used for hair regeneration. Celluma is FDA-cleared for wrinkles and acne as well as arthritic pain, muscle and joint pain, and muscle and joint stiffness. In addition, Celluma has clearances for muscle tissue tension and spasm, and is proven to decrease inflammation and increase micro-circulation. We are offering several ways for you to utilize this device. Celluma Light Therapy is the most effective when used regularly over time. So, you can purchase a package of sessions several times a week over a number of weeks. You can find those choices here. You can add a Celluma Light Therapy onto your existing massage session. Speak with your therapist about this option. We also have a rental options! What ever suits your needs. You will be able to take the Celluma device home for a period of time and use it several times a day, in as many areas that need attention,and on the whole family.
