Avalon™ Light Therapy
What is Avalon Light Therapy?
It is a new way for helping people of all ages to overcome various physical challenges and enhance overall performance, mood, energy and well-being.
What is Light Therapy?
The Avalon Photo Pulsating Light Therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light, pulsed at research proven frequencies applied to the skin for multiple therapeutic benefits.
What happens during Light Therapy?
By placing various neoprene pads with numerous ingrained LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) emitting blue, red and infra-red light energy on different areas of the surface of the body, a very safe level of light energy is transmitted to the cellular tissue creating a comforting warm feeling.
How does Light Therapy affect the body?
The photo energy dilates the blood vessels, which often causes an increase in circulation. The light and mild warmth may also reduce and alleviate pain. Additionally, clients may experience:
¤ Decrease in local swelling.
¤ Decreased inflammation.
¤ Decreased muscle spasms and tightness.
¤ Decreased tension and aches.
¤ Increased range of motion.
¤ Increased lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
¤ Increased venous dilation and flow.
¤ Diabetics and clients with peripheral neuropathy typically may experience:
¤ An increase in sensation to pressure and hot/cold.
What happens at a cellular level?
The infra-red photo energy releases nitric oxide from the red blood cell’s haemoglobin and from the cells of the vessel walls. Nitric oxide is a signalling molecule that is known to relax smooth muscle cells found in arteries, veins, capillaries and lymph vessels. When these muscles relax, they dilate the blood vessels, thus allowing an increased circulation. Nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter and a cellular antioxidant and has been shown to be essential for wound healing whether chronic or traumatic. It promotes cell collagen synthesis, collagen fibril alignment and angiogenesis.
Evidence indicates that cells absorb photons and transform their energy into ATP, which is used as a co-enzyme transporting chemical energy within cells for metabolism and many cellular processes, to repair or regenerate cell components, foster an abundance of cell production and increase circulation thus restoring balance to the body.

Sometimes only one or a few sessions are needed. How often and how many sessions you would need, will depend on your problem and how you respond. You can have one session only and if needed, you can have up to two or three sessions per day, with a pause of minimum five hours in between.
