Lisa Rhodes, a doctor of podiatric medicine, licensed acupuncturist and owner of Integrative Health Care, in Fountainville, announces a new modality, In Light Wellness Systems. The non-invasive and restorative polychromatic light therapy system is intended for clinical, professional and home use, and has been FDA approved for pain syndrome and peripheral neuropathy, with a variety of settings and combinations that allow application for children and adults.
Rhodes conducts a client consultation and performs an evaluation to determine the inclusion of light therapy sessions in a treatment protocol. In Light Wellness Systems can also be used for facial rejuvenation and anti-aging benefits, and as therapy for infection, depression, anxiety, allergies, auto-immune disease and inflammation. It can support the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the muscular and skeletal systems, and the technology is currently under development for FDA approval for use with traumatic brain injury cases. In addition, the light therapy device provides support for clients suffering from TMJ.
Light diodes are embedded into pads of different sizes. During a light therapy session, a light-emitting pad is placed directly on the skin, and can be applied underneath clothing. The pad is connected to the machine, and Rhodes sets the wavelength for the desired effect. Session length is between five and 40 minutes.
“I am amazed at the significant and rapid decrease of symptoms and pain relief that clients are receiving,” enthuses Rhodes, who has been using In Light Wellness Systems for four months. “A particular example comes to mind. When a client who received light therapy sessions for TMJ returned to her orthodontist, he was shocked at how much her TMJ had improved,” she explains. “This new modality offers us another powerful tool to help support the wellness journey of our clients.”
