Infrared light therapy provides effective relief for sore, stiff muscles and joints by directing heat deep into the tissues of the body.
Light therapy produces heat both at the surface of the skin as well as deep into the tissues below.
This increases circulation and brings fresh blood to the area to nourish the tissues and flush away any toxins that may be present.
It is effective at relieving the pain and discomfort of ligament damage (sprains and strains), muscle spasms and chronic conditions like rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.
Using light from the infrared spectrum, this form of therapy works deep below the surface of the skin. It is extremely effective when used in conjunction with acupuncture and other types of traditional Chinese healing methods.
By temporarily raising the temperature of the area being treated, it increases blood flow and relaxes the muscles and tissues. Infrared light therapy is ideal for people who cannot tolerate deep tissue massage or require treatment in an area that is not easily accessible.
An acupuncturist may choose to use infrared therapy during acupuncture or cupping session to enhance the benefits of the healing technique. Relaxing the body and the mind prior to a treatment session removes any resistance and will increase the healing benefits the patient receives.
Patients who are nervous or frustrated because of their condition and how it affects them, may be anxious or upset during a treatment session. Using infrared light therapy will not only provide a means of relaxation, but will also stimulate the body’s own healing responses.
Infrared light therapy is quite effective when it comes to treating the pain and discomfort associated with nerve disorders.
Sciatica and various forms of neuropathy can be effectively treated with light therapy. Chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic neck and back pain also respond well to this form of treatment.
Patients with bursitis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and various types of injuries can also receive relief.
Edema or fluid build up around injured or damaged joints can also be addressed with infrared light therapy.

BAA and BAF worked with Public Health England and the Office of National Statistics to raise the category of acupuncture from 3219 - the category of Health Associate, up to 2220 - the level of Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. All professional acupuncturists now belong in the category of Healthcare Professionals. This means that in the event of future Tiers of Lockdowns the clinic will be able to stay open.
