Bioptron Light Therapy

What is Bioptron?

The Bioptron Light Therapy is an innovative device with an optical unit emitting light that is similar to a part of the electromagnetic spectrum produced by the sun but with no UV radiation. The light emitted by Bioptron light therapy system can be characterized as polarized (its waves oscillate on parallel planes)

How does it work?

Bioptron Light Therapy emits mild energy that stimulates the natural healing and regenerating potential of the body. There is no life without a light!

  • Polarization

Bioptron Light is polarized light, its waves move(oscillate) on parallel planes. Linear polarization by reflection (the multi-layer mirror system, Brewster mirror), is very efficient and attains a polarization by 95%

  • Polychromacy

Bioptron Light Therapy encompasses the wavelength range from 480nm to 3400nm. This spectrum contains the visible light range and a proportion of infrared radiation. The electromagnetic spectrum of Bioptron Light does not contain UV radiation.

  • Incoherency

Bioptron Light is incoherent or “out of phase” light. In other words, the light waves are not synchronized. Inconherent Light is soft, low intensive and no damaging the tissues.

What is it good for?

Wound healing

BIOPTRON Light increases the production of endogen collagen, giving to the connective tissues the structure and stability necessary for elasticity and skin strength. BIOPTRON Hyperlight therapy fosters the recovery of tissues to a healthy and functional state.

  • Wounds following trauma or surgery
  • Burns
  • Skin grafts
  • Diabetes foot ulcers
  • Decubitus (pressure ulcers)

Pain relief

  • Decreasing the release of inflammatory cytokines
  • Diminishing nociceptive (pain) signals
  • Increasing tensile strength of the healed tissue, accelerating the healing process
  • Enhancing microcirculation

Dermatology

  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Herpes simplex
  • Herpes zoster
  • Ulcers

 Sports Injuries

BIOPTRON Therapy controls the inflammation and stimulates the early start of the healing process, thus systematically reducing the recovery time from the onset of injury. BIOPTRON Therapy promotes wound healing and accelerates tissue regeneration.

  • Sprain
  • Strain
  • Tendinitis
  • Ligaments and Muscle tears
  • Tennis elbow/ Golfer’s elbow
  • Lower back pain
  • Rotator cuff syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis

Is Bioptron safe? Any harmful side effects?

Bioptron has no UV rays therefore it is absolutely safe. Bioptron has been used for more than 20 years and there are no harmful side effects have been reported.

Acupuncture + Bioptron = Faster healing!

Both Acupuncture and Bioptron help the blood circulation and speed up the tissue regeneration, the use of Bioptron Light in conjunction with Acupuncture could greatly enhance the natural healing process.

Talking With Kids About the Coronavirus

As the effects of the coronavirus outbreak continue to seep into everyday life, it can be hard to stay present rather than focusing on the myriad of concerns and questions everyone has. Unfortunately, this can be true for kids too. 

Younger kids can perceive their caretakers’ stress and older kids are better aware of what’s going on for their families and in the world around them. As we navigate our own stress each day, it can be hard to know how to protect children from theirs. Traditional Chinese Medicine can support you in doing so, maybe lightening your personal load in the process. continue reading »

Struggling with Weight loss?

Why do we gain weight?

Today people are not doing enough exercises, eat lots of junk food and drink alcohols which are very high in calories. This results in lots of toxins building up in the body.

Because of the lack of nutrition and exercise this causes poor circulation of blood and energy then metabolism slows down. Slowed body metabolism fails to burn fat, so we gain weight.  Chronic stress may lead to an increase in appetite—and an increase in cravings for unhealthy food. Slowly, over the course of several months or even a year, the weight gain may accumulate.

 

How does obesity affect your health?

  • Heart disease and heart attacks
  • Strokes and high blood pressure
  • Colon cancer
  • Degenerative joint disease (arthritis)
  • Insulin resistance
  • Diabetes mellitus (high blood sugars)
  • Depression
  • Bad self image
  • Negative thoughts
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Chronic fatigue

 

How Does Acupuncture Help With Weight Loss?

In order to achieve meaningful weight loss, lifestyle changes have to be made, and acupuncture can help people with this.  People are often concerned about a lack of energy, increased stress levels, and difficulty coping with the pain that can occur when starting a new exercise regimen.

 

Acupuncture is helpful with weight loss as it increases a person’s energy levels, making you want to exercise.  It also relieves the pain that you feel when exercising.  It is also useful if there is a metabolic condition that results in weight gain, and it increases the body’s metabolism, reduces food cravings, and improves circulation all around the body.

 

 

 

Acupuncture tightens up flabby areas

More specifically, acupuncture has been found to reduce both weight and cholesterol levels by mobilizing energy  stores.  Studies have shown that people receiving acupuncture lost twice as much weight as those who were on a diet alone.  In addition, it helps decrease levels of total cholesterols, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol.

Acupuncture also helps regulate sleep, which is also beneficial for weight loss.  Regular sleeping patterns sustain the body throughout the day, help to maintain a balanced lifestyle, and allow the metabolism to find a balanced and steady rhythm.

 

Electric acupuncture for fat burning

Electric acupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles.

 

What does it do?

  • Burns fat
  • Tightens up flabby areas
  • Removes toxin

Cosmetic Acupuncture – Take a few years off your Face!

What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

 

Cosmetic Acupuncture     is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of ageing.

It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face.

This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat many conditions and illnesses. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been related to the manipulation of the energy points on the body to balance and to remove blockages in the meridians (channels of blood and energy), in order to achieve health and to prevent diseases.
