Can light therapy products be used on people?
Horses, dogs, and humans all receive the same wavelengths and treatment times. Before these products are promoted for use on people, the FDA requires premarket approval clearance for marketing. Despite this, most of our clients use it on themselves while being aware that this is “off label” use and accepting full responsibility.
Do I require specialized training?
No. Although the technology is quite advanced, the application is very simple. Our light treatment equipment is powerful and effective enough to meet the needs of healthcare professionals while also being secure and simple enough for nonprofessionals to use. Once the treatment period is complete, an internal timer will switch the units off. Simply move to the next place and turn the unit on if you need to treat more than one area. Each light treatment product comes with a care and use manual. The guide includes images as well as instructions on how to take care of the instrument and the animals. We are always here to answer any questions in addition to the Care & Use Guide.
How frequently and for how long should I apply light therapy to my dog, cat or horse?
Always pay attention to your pet since some days they may want you to use the light for a longer period of time, and a shorter period the next. Animals are very sensitive to the energy of the lights. They are smart; and many times, will even lead you to a place for you to use it!
For best results, use light therapy twice daily on each location, with a six-hour gap between each session. Injured or energy-depleted cells are kept charged by this use.
Consistency is the most important; your pet will benefit most from Light Therapy if it is used on a regular basis.
There has never been any indication of side effects or unanticipated consequences recorded. These therapy guidelines are based on our research and observations.
Is Light Therapy only used for injuries?
No, Light Therapy products are not just used on injuries, but as a regular part of daily training programs to keep your animal partners in top performance.
Where and when should I NOT use Light Therapy?
Do not use over any malignant tumor on any animal without being instructed by your veterinarian.
Do not use on the abdominal area of pregnant mares or pregnant dogs or cats. This is not because it is harmful, but rather because there are no studies that mention using it on these animals.
Avoid staring directly at the lights.
Avoid shining the lights directly into any person’s or animal’s eyes. Long-term exposure to the lights shining straight into the eyes may cause problems.
Use caution if using photosensitive drugs like tetracycline are being used.
If I use ointments or DMSO on my animal, should I put them on before or after using Light Therapy?
If you use ointments, liniments, oils, or DMSO, use only AFTER using any Light Therapy. Make sure the area is clean and dry before applying Light Therapy anywhere on the body.
If you use any topical that generates heat, use caution when using Light Therapy. We have not heard of any adverse side effects, but skin sensitivities can vary.
