Light and Colour Therapies

Bioptron Light Therapy

Light and colour therapy have been practiced since ancient times. Scientific evidence to support it has been quietly gathering momentum for a century.

Albert Szent-Gyorgi, Nobel Laureate, is credited with the research that concluded that many of the body's enzymes and hormones are functionally sensitive to light. Colour changes can significantly affect the power and effectiveness of these hormones and enzymes.

Verified by researchers Martinek and Berezin in 1979, they found that some colours can increase the activity of enzymes by up to 500 per cent, and markedly affect transport of chemicals across cell membranes. It has even been found that the absence of certain wavelengths of light results in the body being unable to fully absorb all dietary nutrients! Our current lifestyles, and the fear of UV in sunlight, means that our bodies are getting less natural light than at any time in history.

Why the Bioptron?

The Bioptron Light Therapy System is a worldwide patented light therapy medical device with a specific optical unit emitting light that is similar to the part of the electromagnetic spectrum produced naturally by the sun but with no UV radiation.

It aims to provide the wavelengths of light needed without the perceived risks associated with UV light. Bioptron Light Therapy can act in a natural way by supporting the regenerative and rebalancing capacities of the body and therefore help the body release its own healing potential.

When the Bioptron light is directed onto the skin it stimulates light-sensitive intracellular structures and molecules. This initiates cellular chain reactions and triggers so-called secondary responses, which are not only limited to the treated skin area, but can involve the whole body.

What can it do?

  • Stimulate regenerative and reparative processes of the entire body
  • Relieve pain or decrease its intensity
  • Improve microcirculation
  • Harmonise metabolic processes
  • Promote wound healing
  • Reinforce the human defence system

Conditions Treated

Colour therapy works on the principle that we need the various vibrations of all the colours that make up light. Indeed we may even be thought of as beings of light. When white light is passed through a prism you will see that it is broken down into the various colours that make up the spectrum. Each of these colours has different attributes. It can have stimulating, relaxing, warming, cooling, or neutral properties. Different colours can be used therapeutically to aid the different metabolic processes within the body.

Within The Therapy Network colour therapy is offered using the Bioptron Colour Therapy device. It is usually used in conjunction with other techniques, as part of a holistic treatment plan.
