Love and Light Therapy

LIGHT
Low Level Laser Therapy

 Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) consists of the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity Laser Diode (250 milliwatt or less) or an array of high intensity Super Luminous Diodes (providing optical power in the 1000-2000 milliwatt range) to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and to heal wounds. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell morphology, function, and the enhancement of the body’s natural healing processes.

LOVE
Self-Guided Mindfulness-based Meditation

Pain is a multidimensional experience that involves sensory, cognitive, and affective factors. The constellation of interactions between these factors renders the treatment of chronic pain to be challenging and financially burdensome. Mindfulness meditation is a technique that has been found to significantly reduce pain across a wide spectrum of pain-related disorders, including fibromyalgia,1,2 migraine,3 chronic pelvic pain,irritable bowel syndrome,5 chronic low back pain,6 psoriasis,7 and other conditions.

With emerging evidence demonstrating that it can significantly attenuate pain through multiple, unique mechanisms – the implementation of self-guided meditation in conjunction with low level laser therapy can lead to a synergistic effect in the healing process. This can be an important consideration for the millions of chronic pain sufferers seeking narcotic-free, self-facilitated pain therapy
