HealthLight system

Brilliant Light Therapy

Brilliant Light Therapy uses ​HealthLight™ photo-modulated (pulsed, light emitting diode) devices also known as low-level light therapy (LLLT) devices. The infrared and visible red LEDs are the heart of the HealthLight™ Therapy systems, providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light.

After decades of research found that certain wavelengths of light within the red, blue and infrared bands were very beneficial to living tissue. Light therapy is currently being used in clinical and home settings around the world. Light therapy has been in use by the medical profession to increase circulation and reduce pain and inflammation for more than 20 years. Its growing acceptance has become more abundant as research continues into the many ways light therapy can help.

​LED light therapy describes the color in terms of the wavelength of the LED's. The wavelength is measured in nanometers (nm). The human eye sees wavelengths as colors. Infrared is outside of the visible spectrum and cannot be seen by the human eye. ​The infrared light energy releases nitric oxide from hemoglobin and endothelial cells. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule that relaxes smooth muscle cells found in the arteries, veins, and lymph vessels. When these muscles relax, the vessels dilate, thus allowing increased circulation. Visualize the difference in diameter between a straw and a hose.

HealthLight™ creates a comforting, warm feeling with the pads.
Light energy:

  • Dilates the blood vessels locally, causing an increase in circulation (blood flow)
  • Stimulates warmth that may reduce and alleviate pain. Many users get so relaxed they actually fall asleep
Additionally, patients and clients may experience:
  • Pain relief
  • Decreased tension
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Decrease in local swelling
  • Increase in range of motion
  • Increased lymphatic drainage
  • Decreased muscle spasms and tightness
  • Increased venous dilation and blood flow
  • Improvement in peripheral neuropathy symptoms

Scientific Research

A collection of helpful resources for a deeper understanding of the potential benefits and mechanisms of action.

Improved Sensitivity in Patients with Peripheral Neuropathy

"...monochromatic infrared photo energy treatment seems to be associated with significant clinical improvement in foot sensation in patients, primarily Medicare aged, with peripheral neuropathy."

Symptomatic Reversal of Peripheral Neuropathy

"On the basis of Semmes-Weinstein monofilament values, 48 subjects (98%) exhibited improved sensation after 6 treatments, and all subjects had improved sensation after 12 treatments."

Improved foot sensitivity and pain reduction in patients with peripheral neuropathy...

"... treatments are associated with a substantially improved foot sensation, and a robust reduction in neuropathic pain that had been previously unresponsive to other interventions."

Reversal of diabetic peripheral neuropathy with phototherapy...

"These results suggest that symptomatic reversal of diabetic neuropathy will have a substantial favourable, long-term socioeconomic impact on patients with DPN and the Medicare system, and improve the quality of life for elderly patients with diabetes and peripheral neuropathy."

Enhancement of nitric oxide release from nitrosyl hemoglobin and nitrosyl myoglobin by red/near infrared radiation: Potential role in cardioprotection

"We show both in purified systems and in myocardium that R/NIR light can decay nitrosyl hemes and release NO, and that this released NO may enhance the cardioprotective effects of nitrite.

Using near infrared light to manage symptoms associated with restless legs syndrome

"The use of NIR to modulate symptoms associated with RLS was supported by the data.
