Photon therapy is extremely effective for animals and has been in use internationally for over forty years. Photon therapy is able to stimulate or sedate through acupuncture points and meridians resulting in greater health throughout the system. Our equipment settings are based partly on the research following.

Animals involved in competitive sports can achieve optimum performance through regular treatment.

Paul Nogier MD, of Lyon France, is the father of ear acupuncture and "ear medicine." Nogier made a string of new discoveries in the field of acupuncture from the 1950's to about 1990. The Chinese credit him with the development of the ear "map" as an upside down fetus representing the entire body in an organized form. By treating the ear it is possible to treat any part of the body. 
In the 1970's he developed his own unique reflex test. He used the tip of his left thumb to feel the "peak amplitude" of the radial pulse of the patient as he or she lay on the back. He then held various materials in his right hand and from arm's length approached the right ear of the patient and observed changes in the pulse. 
Nogier later used a frequency generator aimed at different body parts while he felt the pulse for changes. In this manner he discovered three frequencies that were in resonance with parts of the body that were derived from the three basic tissues in embryology. . An analogy is how a tuning fork for middle C will make another C tuning fork ring from a distance. He later discovered four more useful frequencies. All of the frequencies are octaves of the musical note D in the American system. These "tissue resonance frequencies" were found to apply to all living animals. He believed that during illness the frequency of tissue is outside normal ranges and healing might occur by treating over and over with the correct frequency. 
Although Nogier used colored filters in his diagnostic work he never used light therapy. This step occurred in the United States after he traveled to Canada to present his findings. Veterinary acupuncturists were the first to use this discovery with LEDs. After 15 years of use the senior group of veterinary acupuncturists pooled their findings, from which we have based ourLumen™ equipment frequencies and settings.



What Does Light Therapy Do for Animals?

  • Increase vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries, which are additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones. New capillaries speed up the healing process by carrying more oxygen as well as more nutrients needed for healing and they can also carry more waste products away.

  • Stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site.

  • Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid of waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell. All food turns into ATP before it is utilized by the cells. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reaction of the cell.

  • Increase lymphatic system activity. Edema, which is the swelling or natural splinting process of the body, has two basic components. The first is a liquid part which can be evacuated by the blood system and the second is comprised of the proteins which have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. Research has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of light therapy. The venous diameter and the arterial diameters can also be increased. This means that both parts of edema (liquid and protein) can be evacuated at a much faster rate to relieve swelling

  • Increase RNA and DNA synthesis. This helps damaged cells to be replaced more promptly.

  • Reduce the excitability of nervous tissue. The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions like calcium among others to go to the area being treated. These ions assist in firing the nerves thereby relieving pain.

  • Stimulate fibroblastic activity which aids in the repair process. Fibroblasts are present in connective tissue and are capable of forming collagen fibers.

  • Increase phagocytosis, which is the process of scavenging for and ingesting dead or degenerated cells by phagocyte cells for the purpose of clean up. This is an important part of the infection fighting process. Destruction of the infection and clean up must occur before the healing process can take place.

  • Induce a thermal like effect in the tissue. The light raises the temperature of the cells although there is no heat produced from the diodes themselves. (The therapy equipment will be warm to the touch because of the electronics needed to power the diodes.)

  • Stimulate tissue granulation and connective tissue projections, which are part of the healing process of wounds, ulcers or inflamed tissue.

  • Stimulate acetylcholine release. Acetylcholine causes cardiac inhibition, vasodilation, gastrointestinal peristalsis and other parasympathetic effects.
