Lumen Photon Therapy for Pain and Inflammation

Did you know that close to 90% of people with chronic pain and inflammation also have some level of disordered sleep.

According to Dr. Thomas Roth, PhD, Director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, "There's very good data that suggests that disturbed sleep can worsen your pain."

Professor Eve Van Cauter of the University of Chicago states that, "Lack of sleep disrupts every physiologic function in the body."

Pain and inflammation can arise in people as a result of disease-based conditions, physical trauma, work-related stresses, training, or other high performance activities.  When looking for long-term solutions to these problems many traditional western medical practitioners have been recommending the use of light energy therapy.

Clinical tests have been conducted by NASA, Stanford University, and the Mayo Clinic, proving that light energy, or photon therapy, is able to help relieve pain and inflammation.

The Lumen Photon Therapy products (as shown above) are indicated for pain relief, muscle relaxation, increasing circulation, and increasing mobility of joints.  These devices fall under FDA classification (RT)890.5740 and became exempt from the 510(k) requirement in 1997 because of their safety.
