Red Light Therapy’ (RLT) also known as Photobiomodulation (PBM) in the scientific community is a newly developing field in injury and illness management. However, the concept that light can heal is not new. Despite its recent popularity, it has close to a 100 year history of scientific research and development.
‘Light Heals: Red Light Therapy for Sleep and Mental Health’ introduces you to the science and application of red light therapy. Evidence based chapters in this course include topics of history of light therapy, photobiomodulation theories, how red light therapy interacts with the molecular, cellular, and tissue systems of the body. This course includes easy to navigate clinical protocols for safe and effective use of red light therapy for clinical indications of sleep and mental health.
This mini course is intended for students with no prerequisite knowledge of red light therapy.
