LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy harnesses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific wavelengths and frequencies for accelerated healing by activating the pain and relaxing ‘medication’ of the animal’s own body.

It is non-invasive and painless, producing a gentle and soothing warmth that is especially effective in treating chronic pain and inflammatory conditions associated with osteoarthritis and overuse injuries.

Photizo Light Therapy is regularly used during the course of massage sessions and I’m always happy for owners pop-in (by appointment) for a top-up.
