During a light therapy session, your pet relaxes comfortably while their eyes take in specific colors and lights. The body is a living photocell stimulated and regulated by light entering through the eyes. When correctly used, light and color are imbued with therapeutic properties that are profoundly capable of influencing the healing process, helping to bring the emotional and the physical into balance. Light therapy is effective in treating chronic fatigue, all forms of stress, insomnia and depression. It activates and strengthens immunity, and can help release old physical and emotional stress factors.
“The science (of light) bridges the gap between scientific knowledge, intuitive knowing, health and personal evolution, thus acting as a new paradigm in healing… Light, a non-intrusive, very powerful tool, resides at the core of the new medicine.”
The Spectral Illuminator has been utilized since 1990, when Dr. Jacob Liberman’s book Light: Medicine of The Future was published. Dr. Liberman, regarded as the pioneer of modern light therapy, was the first to scientifically prove that our bodies are biological light receptors, and that we need light for life and energy. The body is a living photocell stimulated and regulated by light entering through the eyes. The eyes are the entry points through which light has its profound effect on the regulation of human psychological and emotional functioning. Light entering the eyes stimulates the hypothalamus which coordinates and regulates most of our life-sustaining functions. The hypothalamus may be the single most important unit of the brain, standing as high command in maintaining harmony with the body. The hypothalamus also governs the pituitary gland which in turn regulations the endocrine system of hormone-secreting glands. It also initiates and coordinates our reactions and adaptations to stress.
“It appears that not a single cell in the body can escape the influence of light striking the eyes. Merely altering the color of light can restore balance within the autonomic nervous system.”
