Avalon Light Therapy

What Is The Avalon Effect?

The Avalon Effect is the effect one’s body gets when it is exposed to natural light and energy vibrations from the Quantum Series light therapy system; which in turn helps to stimulate the body’s natural and innate ability to heal itself.

The Quantum Series uses light therapy to increase circulation, reduce pain, promote cell regeneration, speed up the healing process, stimulate the release of ATP and nitric oxide and detoxify the system.

Historically the same light therapy that has been used for decades for SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), collagen stimulation in the skin and pain relief is now available for a wide range of healing conditions.

In these ground-breaking therapies, light-emitting diodes or LED’s are most often used to apply concentrated doses of light to patients.

Conditions treated by light therapy:-

Stimulates tissue granulation and connective tissue projections.

Decreases inflammation.

Stimulates Acetylcholine release.

Decreases muscle spasms and tightness.

Reduces excitability of nerve tissue.

Decreases tension.

Decreases pain and numbness in extremities.

Increases range of motion.

Increases body vibrations.

Increases lymphatic drainage.

Enhances cell communication.

Increases venous dilation and flow.

Activates Pharmacopeia of the brain and glands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Light?

Before the time of rubber soled shoes and concrete dwellings, we were more connected to our natural environment, specifically light. Because light surrounds us everyday, it is easy to take for granted. Yet what we perceive as light is actually a form of energy that behaves both as a wave and as a stream of particles called photons. Photons are tiny packets of energy our bodies can utilise for healing. Scientific research has shown that certain wave lengths of light encourage a number of beneficial effects.

Evidence indicates that cells absorb photons and transform their energy into ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), which is a form of energy that cells utilise. The resulting ATP is then used to power metabolic processes and to synthesise DNA & RNA (proteins & enzymes.) ATP may also repair or regenerate cell components, foster an abundance of cell reproduction and increase circulation thus restoring balance to the body.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy has been shown in over 50 years of independent research world wide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Light therapy causes biologic effects because specific proteins in the body absorb different wavelengths. Both visible red, blue and “invisible” infrared light affects at least 24 positive changes at the cellular level. Red light, which is visible, at a wavelength of 640 nanometers, penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm. It is very beneficial in treating issues close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points and is particularly effective in treating infections. Infrared light (880 nm) penetrates to a depth of about 30-50 mm, which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscle, etc.

Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) are a form of light therapy that is a relatively recent outgrowth from the laser industry yet proven more effective by covering a greater surface area in a shorter amount of time. Light therapy is currently being used in clinical and home settings around the globe. It has been in use by the medical profession for more than 20 years to reduce pain and increase circulation. It’s growing acceptance has become more abundant in the medical field.

“Light energy is profoundly capable of influencing the healing process and the visual apparatus is not the only sensory organ that responds to light.”
–Dr. Deepak Chopra, Author

How does light therapy increase circulation?

The infrared photo energy releases nitric oxide from the haemoglobin and possibly surrounding tissue. Nitric oxide is a signalling molecule that is known to relax smooth muscle cells found in the arteries, veins, capillaries and lymph vessels. When these muscles relax they dilate the blood vessels thus allowing increased circulation.

How does light therapy reduce pain?

In layman’s terms nitric oxide acts as a safe, natural pain reliever in the cells. It has been shown to be essential for wound healing even if chronic or traumatic. Scientific literature shows that nitric oxide promotes collagen synthesis, collagen fibril alignment and angiogenesis. Nitric oxide is also a neurotransmitter.

Can anyone use light therapy?

Any individual can use the Quantum Series Light Therapy equipment safely without medical supervision at home or by a health professional in a clinical setting. The sessions are affordable, completely safe and non-invasive.

Aside from the following contraindications most people can use light therapy safely with the potential for many health benefits. Light therapy is contraindicated for:

  • the womb of a pregnant woman
  • localized skin cancer sites
  • epilepsy or history of seizures
  • those on light sensitive medications.

Who has studied LED light therapy?

There are volumes of scientific studies available on light therapy. The following is just a sample list of institutions that have conducted clinical studies on the effectiveness of LED Light Therapy over the last several decades:

  • National Cancer Institute
  • Mayo Clinic, Jeffrey Basford, MD
  • Stanford University, Kendric C. Smith
  • Massachusetts General Hospital, Wellman Labs
  • NASA, Dr. Harry T. Whelan
  • Marshall Space Flight Center
  • University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C.
  • University of Colorado, Dr. Thomas Burke, PhD

Where can I receive the Light Therapy?

The Quantum Series Light Therapy is available here at The ISHSKO Wellness Centre.

How does one receive the treatment?

The LED pads are placed on different areas of the body including over the eyes to stimulate healing for any specific concern. You lie comfortably for 20-30 minutes and enjoy the deep relaxation of the therapy.

How often do I need treatment?

It varies for every individual depending on their particular concerns. For chronic and acute issues one can expect anywhere from 4 to 12 treatments. As with any healing modality one gets the best benefit from frequent and daily exposure to the light treatment. For that reason it is highly recommended that one carries out 1-2 sessions per day for 4-6 consecutive days. Most people when they experience the deeply relaxing results and knowledge of being in a para-sympathetic state decide to receive maintenance sessions. It all depends upon one’s goals.

Who can benefit from Light Therapy?

Anyone who wants to optimise their health and immunity for a pain free and long lasting life.

What are the frequencies in the Avalon System?

The Quantum Series Personal Wellness Pack is a family of flexible LED pads with unlimited positioning that supplies the body with non-invasive therapeutic ‘near’ infrared, red and blue light. The system is also infused with Nogier, Sine, Schumann, Solfeggio and Standing/Quantum Zero Point frequencies providing 500 total LEDs of light energy. Made with Irvisium Superflux diodes.
