Light Force Therapy: Idea Whose Time has Come--The Birth of LSTT

The New York Times (June 03) and Western Horseman Magazine (Feb. 02) both tell the poignant story of Jana Sullivan who went from being a psychotherapist with a Doctorate of Divinity in Counseling, to an inventor of patented and FDA approved devices for pain relief. Her Light-Emitting-Diode inventions have been featured in the Denver Post, the Colorado Springs Gazette, Newsweek Magazine, The New York Times, on the CNN Health Report and have been sold world wide.

"Since I had a lot of emotional pain and learning disabilities, I studied psychology in college. I found that when I connected deeply with my clients' emotions, it accelerated their healing process," said Sullivan. As a single parent with three young children, she moved her family out West and fulfilled a childhood dream of owning horses. When Casi, her 8 year old pregnant mare, had a twisted gut and eventually was euthanized, a light went on for Sullivan-driven by her compassion and distaste for pain-and she was motivated to develop an alternative healing method for animals. "Standing by helplessly and watching someone I love suffer and waste away was intolerable, and veterinarian care was hours and sometimes even days away," Sullivan noted.

After years of research and engineering failures, she created a product using red, infrared and green LED's that helped relieve pain from injuries and from such conditions as arthritis in horses. The products won the Equitana award for "Most Innovated New Health Product" in 1997. Soon the owners were using the units more on their own aches and pains than on their pets and horses. So in 1998 Sullivan sold her companies, Light Force Technologies, Light Force Therapy, and Light Force Canada to a group who obtained FDA approval for human use, and she once again devoted herself full time to her family.

However, the physical and emotional suffering which started with the 9/11 disaster convinced Sullivan that her creative talents once again were needed and she formed Concept & Design Enterprises with the help of her children. C & DE updated hundreds of studies and articles on light therapy, including NASA and the US Government's use of the technology. Audio sound was added to the benefits of light therapy after her son attended the Clinic for Inner Change in Denver for an inherited neurological disorder, identified as incurable by a medical group. "The results were nothing short of a miracle," Sullivan declared. Dr. Munson, MD and Director of the clinic, used sophisticated sound wave equipment to effect changes in the brain's ability to expand its capabilities, especially in cases of head injuries, stroke and learning disabilities in children.

"I saw that there were many good people out there who had fallen between the cracks, like my son. And our country and government is based on the premise that no one should be left out. That left room for me to enter with the idea to market directly to the public, making this technology easy and inexpensive to use by anyone with inflammation or pain." Double-blind tests for products to help alleviate bed sores and muscle atrophy as well as for depression and insomnia, based on Sullivan's psychotherapeutic background, will soon be initiated. "Pain, whether physical or emotional, is universal. It respects no ethnic, religious, economic nor age group. And if my inventions can alleviate the suffering of one person, one child, one dog, one horse, so they can enjoy the short time they have left on earth, then I consider myself blessed..very blessed," Sullivan said.

 

Benefits of Light, Sound & Color Therapy

When the mind is relaxed, the body's natural healing and balancing mechanisms are free from negative mental and emotional interference. Recent studies show that stress is a primary factor in almost every disease including heart attacks and cancer, as well as in accidents, suicide and higher levels of pain intolerance. Breaking the vicious circle of pain causing more stress, and stress then causing higher levels of pain, and pain again raising the stress levels--is paramount to a good quality of life. Music and sound therapy can play an important role in breaking this vicious circle, thereby allowing the body to heal and regain balance faster and easier.

Specially composed music by Barry Goldstein is currently used therapeutically to reduce stress in children with cancer and AIDS. The integrated sounds on various brain wave levels are soothing and help to carry the listener into a happier and healthier mental environment effortlessly. With the mind and emotions at ease, the body's natural mechanisms are enhanced, especially when combined with light therapy for pain reduction.

Published international research upholds the benefits of LED and light therapy for pain relief, the acceleration of wound healing, and for its anti-inflammatory effects for:

Let There Be Sound

Sound is the most vital force in the Universe, from sonic booms to the Big Bang. Sounds and tones of specific frequencies have the capacity to:

Color My World

Each color is documented to help effect a variety of moods and attitudes, both positive and negative.

  • Red connotes hot, angry, creative
  • Blue connotes cool, calm, rested, sad
  • Yellow connotes happy, upbeat, scared
  • Green connotes vitality, health, envy
  • Pink connotes safety, sweetness, warm and fuzzy

Stress Reduction

Stress is by far the most common health problem in the civilized world. Most people know they feel disturbed and anxious, but can't quite define why. They blame financial problems, a failing relationship or health issues. Stress is the most common factor in obesity, heart attacks, high blood pressure, cancer, auto-immune diseases, accidents and injuries, addictions, insomnia, suicide, and increased levels of chronic pain. Yet stress reduction methods and therapies are expensive, only randomly effective, and might be a risk factor unless continually regulated by an outside medical source.

Light Sound Therapeutic Technology (LSTT) has found an easier pathway, a technology that may guide one directly into those beneficial states of deep relaxation and heightened receptivity. Once achieved, optimal physical performance, pain relief and healing may be accelerated using our patented therapeutic method. This innovative method uses a unique combination of sound waves, light frequencies and colors which benefit an organism at physical, emotional and mental levels, as shown in recent studies.

Well Beam Light Therapy Products - Reduce Stress & Pain Relief

The Well Beam is the Mercedes of home-care use. The patented combination of blue, red and infrared frequencies combine the known benefits of shallow penetration of blue light waves to help reduce minor skin conditions caused by bed sores and acne, with the deep thermal penetration of infrared heat therapy to help reduce stress and for temporary relief of pain and inflammation-without any known side effects. The light therapy products device is a one-time purchase and therefore hundreds and even thousands of dollars can be saved, unlike pain relief products which need to be purchased monthly and over long periods of time. We suggest combining specially composed music CD's (see Product/Sound Therapy page) to create a full body relaxation effect. With the mind relaxed and the body warmed by the topical infrared heat, light therapy can promote faster relief.

The Well Beam is a light emitting device that measures 6" x 5" x 1". It is manufactured in a hard plastic case and contains 24 high intensity Blue light emitting diodes (LED's), 12 Red LED's and 12 Infrared LED's, for a total of 48 LED's. The unit comes standard with a 12vdc wall plug and can deliver a total power output of 66.5mw with the Blue, Red and Infrared on at the same time. Included with the unit is a cigarette power adapter for using the unit while driving.

There is an On/Off switch, a second switch which gives a choice of using only the Blue LED's, only the Red and Infrared LED's or the combination of Blue, Red and Infrared. A third switch determines which of the three frequency settings is chosen.

Dr. Paul Nogier identified seven specific frequencies which resonate with the developmental stages of an embryo and are therefore recognized by the body in its building and repair process. These range from 73 Hz to 4672 Hz. and are offered in a "wave" or a "step" setting for repair and cellular regeneration. The "Theta" frequency of 8 HZ is used to calm agitated cells and enhance rapid pain relief.

The The Well Beam and its methodology are patented. The standard package includes the Well Beam, a 12vdc wall adapter, an adjustable hand strap, a travel case and a 12 vdc car adapter. Also included is the Well Beam Users Manual. The complete package retails for $479.00 and can be ordered by clicking on the "Order Online" button on this page or any other page on this website. Accessories include an adjustable strap for securing the unit to the body.

Light Therapy for Pain

According to the American Pain Society, pain is a major health problem in this country and is the most common symptom that prompts people to seek medical care. It is the second leading cause of medically related work absenteeism, resulting in more than 50 million lost workdays each year. Pain in the absence of disease is not a normal part of aging, yet the majority of older adults experience it on a regular basis.

Estimated costs, including direct medical expenses, lost income, lost productivity, compensation payments, and legal charges, because of chronic pain, are approximately $90 billion a year. The following statistics are startling:

  • In 2002 and estimated 70 million people suffered from some sort of arthritis pain up from 43 million in 1998.
  • 48 million Americans suffer from some form of chronic pain.
  • Over 21 million Americans routinely take prescription painkillers and also spend $3 billion on over-the-counter analgesics.
  • Over 13 million Americans cannot perform routine activities because of pain.
  • 14% of employees take time off from work because of pain.
  • As many as 45 million Americans have chronic, severe headaches that can be disabling.
  • According to the National Institutes of Health, lower back pain is the most frequent cause of activity limitation in people younger than 45 years of age.
  • 65-80% of all people have back pain at some time in their life.

While the under-treatment of pain predominates at present, it is also important to not fall into the trap of thinking that we need more and more different kinds of medication for pain relief. Alarmingly, the International Society of Drug Bulletins (in its 2001 Declaration of Therapeutic Advances in the Use of Medicines) stated that 80% of new products approved for clinical use each year in developed countries provide no advantage over existing treatments. Only 2% of new drug treatments offer a real advance to patients and 5% provide minor benefits (ISDB 2001).

Unlike drug therapies like Vioxx and Celebrex that have known side effects, and other safer alternative therapies such as chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy and massage. Light Therapy for pain does not require a physician or practitioner to administer treatment. This saves time, money, and also eliminates the aggravation of driving, traffic and office waiting rooms. Light therapy is a proven therapy for alleviating pain and inflammation without any known side effects. The Well Beam is the Mercedes of home-care use. The Well Beam can be used at home or in the car. The patented combination of red, blue and infrared frequencies may also be helpful with other adversities.

 

 

Stress reduction and insomnia

When combined with specially composed music CD's (see Product/Sound Therapy page) to create a full body relaxation effect, the Well Beam's Blue/Theta setting can promote relaxation and deep sleep, helping relieve stress and anxiety associated with pain or care-taking someone in pain. Customer feedback attests to this calming effect.

Q It is hard for me to believe that shining a little red or blue light on my body can heal anything. Why should I use this light therapy device?

A There are literally thousands of articles, abstracts and books written on the benefits of Light Therapy today. These publications have been written by doctors, scientists and practitioners from such prestigious organizations as NASA, The Medical College of Wisconsin, Samuel Haroff Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Harvard and many other organizations that have conducted extensive research on Light Therapy.

Q Are any of the treatments harmful?

A We have had no indication of any harmful effects resulting from the use of our therapy products. Of course, please use according to the suggested instructions issued with the unit.

Q Will this work for someone who is diagnosed with a chronic condition or termed by the medical community as "hopeless".

A We have had no indication of any harmful effects resulting from the use of our products. Of course, please use according to the suggested instructions issued with the unit.

Q Can I use Light Therapy if I am pregnant?

A There are no conclusive studies that we are aware of associated with light therapy and pregnancy. Therefore we would recommend contacting a physician who has a working knowledge of light, laser and/or vibrational therapies.

Q Can I quit taking my medications after using Light Therapy?

A Although many clients have reportedly been able to discontinue or downgrade their medication, including morphine, it is recommended that you work closely with your primary health practitioner for any medication changes.

Q Will this therapy work over clothing?

A Although we recommend direct contact with the skin, when possible, the LED's will be effective over clothing. If at all possible try to use it over natural fibers such as cotton or wool. If natural fibers are not available then wear a thin material such as rayon, nylon, or polyester. However, length of treatment time might be less when there is direct contact with the skin.

Q Can I use this unit with a pace maker?

A We could find no specific research contradicting the use of LED devices with pacemakers. Consequently, it would be wise to consult your primary medical practitioner or a doctor with a working knowledge of light and vibrational therapies.
