What is Phototherapy?

Phototherapy is the use of light for treatment.

The science of phototherapy, which has been around for about 100 years, uses light to improve the health of the body. But this idea is nothing new. As far back as two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks had a centre 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.

Phototherapy is now very well understood scientifically. Some examples of how phototherapy is being used today to improve our health are light therapy for newborn babies with jaundice; laser treatments for skincare - reducing wrinkles, discoloration and to treat other more serious skin conditions; red lamps for wound healing and laser eye surgery. 

How do LifeWave Phototherapy Patches Work

Scroll down to watch several videos explaining this process.

The human body emits heat and light, in the form of infrared light.

The patches work by reflecting the infrared light frequencies in the body.

When you are in the sun, the light from the sun signals your body to increase Vitamin D production. Our patches do not need the sun, they reflect our bodies own infrared light.

The patches contain organic crystals (patented). When a patch is placed on the body, body heat activates the patch and the crystals reflect the infrared light back into the body, particular wavelengths of light are reflected depending on the patch and the particular organic crystals used. In combination, the patches are placed on specific acupuncture points on the body, this stimulates the skin and nerves on the body. These processes produce specific health benefits that are unique to each LifeWave patch.

Lifewave patches are drug-free and nothing from the patch passes the skin into the body.

Are the patches safe to use?

The patches contain no chemicals or drugs and are non-transdermal, meaning that nothing enters the body. Additionally, a hypoallergenic medical grade adhesive is used. If irritation does occur it, the patch can be moved to a different location on the body or it can also be attached your clothing.

If you have a health condition, please consult your physician before using LifeWave products.
