What is Phototherapy?
The science of phototherapy, which has been around for about 100 years, uses light to improve the health of the body. Phototherapy is very safe and will not cause any damage to the skin – in fact it does just the opposite! Modern forms of phototherapy such as Low-Level Laser Therapy, which helps reduce wrinkles and treat other more serious skin conditions, are very well understood scientifically. But this idea is nothing new. As far back as two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks had a center for studying the effects of different colored lights on the body. Even the ancient Egyptians, who promoted health by focusing sunlight through colored glass on certain areas of the body, understood this concept.
As an example of phototherapy that we use every day, think of the way that the UV light from the sun initiates Vitamin D production! In a similar way, but without the damaging effects of UV light, phototherapy patches on acupuncture points activate biochemical changes in your body.
At the Ne Mexico Herbal Clinic we offer a full range of phototherapy patches, all safe to use. Many of our patches are manufactured by Lifewave and are FDA approved.
How do LifeWave Phototherapy Patches Work?
Your body emits heat in the form of infrared light. Using a patented, proprietary form of phototherapy, LifeWave patches are designed to trap this infrared light when placed on the body, which causes them to reflect particular wavelengths of light depending on the patch. This process stimulates the nerves on the surface of the skin, thereby inducing different biochemical and physiological changes to produce specific health benefits that are unique to each LifeWave patch, and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself — all without putting any chemicals or substances into the body!
Benefits of the LifeWave Patches
Each type of LifeWave Patch has unique physiological effects which then produce specific health benefits. The benefits are numerous and too many to list them all, but some include immune system support, anti-inflammatory effects, pain reduction, stem cell activation, digestive support, improved energy, improved sleep quality, improved stress adaptation, hormone balancing, detoxification, wound healing, tissue repair, improved skin appearance, enhanced sports performance and so much more!
What is in the LifeWave patches?
Inside each LifeWave patch is a patented nano-crystalline matrix of water, oxygen, glucose and amino acids. The patches are completely free of any drugs, chemicals, or stimulants.
Is Acu-Patching with LifeWave patches safe?
Yes! LifeWave patches are safe, non-transdermal and hypoallergenic.
LifeWave patches are non-transdermal, meaning no compounds enter the body. They are completely free of any drugs, chemicals, or stimulants.
LifeWave patches are applied to the skin using a hypoallergenic adhesive. If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about placing the patches directly on the skin, you can also patch clothing, hats, scarves or sheets instead, as the patches are activated by the body’s infrared heat. They do not have to be directly on the skin to work!
LifeWave is registered with the FDA, and cleared with the United States Anti-Doping Agency and World Anti-Doping Agency.
