Definition of light therapy

Light therapy is a therapeutic practice that uses light to improve well-being and treat sleep disorders, depression and other conditions. It consists of exposing a patient to visible spectrum radiation (white light) during short but regular sessions.

This technique can be administered by a specialized lamp or by any other source of natural light such as the sun. The benefits it offers on the human body are numerous: better concentration, more physical and mental endurance as well as an increase in emotional levels generated by the increased production of hormones such as serotonin and dopamine.

Light therapy is therefore an excellent way to improve your quality of life by treating various psychological disorders such as sleep problems or depression. This therapeutic practice also allows those who use it to amplify their cognitive abilities thanks to better concentration, greater physical and mental endurance as well as a more positive overall feeling generated by the increase in hormones linked to well-being such as as serotonin or even dopamine.

Here, a professional begins with an interview to identify the patient's specific needs.

Colored or white lights are then used to stimulate hormone production and restore energetic harmony to the body.

During this session, you are invited to become aware of the sensations that your body feels thanks to the colors and their effect on you.

Light therapy sessions vary in length depending on the patient's individual needs, sometimes also including a pair of LED glasses worn for 15 minutes up to a maximum of 30 minutes, if necessary.
