Pristine Wellness offers Polychromatic Light Therapy in Steamboat Springs using LED lights emitting specific wavelengths (Red/Blue/Near-Infrared) of light which affect the body in different ways. The diodes are embedded in neoprene pads and placed on the body to provide therapeutic benefit. LED light therapy has been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation and improving blood circulation making it an ideal choice for athletes or anyone suffering from injury or pain.
The device Pristine Wellness uses is FDA cleared as a Class II Medical Device to reduce inflammation and improve blood circulation. It is supplied by In Light Wellness Systems and designed for clinical and home use. Watch the video below for more information.
LED light therapy sessions are non-invasive and only take 20-30 minutes. After identifying the area of concern, pads of different shapes, sizes, and types are simply placed on the body, plugged into a controller and turned on. The pads get slightly warm but not hot and while many clients report results almost immediately, substantial progress is more common after several sessions. Pads range from 90 to 264 diodes in square, rectangular, “T”, and other specialty shapes to fit certain body parts. The pads all contain near-infrared diodes and either a mix of or exclusively red or blue diodes. The various color combinations provide different therapeutic benefit and the controller has several different program options to choose from depending on the therapeutic goal.

Try a different approach! Drug-free pain relief is possible with LED light therapy from Pristine Wellness. This natural process is effective, with the added benefit of no known side effects! Polychromatic Light Therapy has been shown to decrease pain associated with many common conditions, including the ones listed below. Perhaps the best benefit of low-level light therapy use over painkillers is that light therapy stimulates your body’s natural self-healing abilities, helping to significantly reduce symptoms over time.
Inflammation and swelling
IMPACTS + RESEARCH
As noted above, Polychromatic Light Therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing pain and improving circulation. And, while many conditions may be positively impacted by light therapy, certain types of Peripheral Neuropathy may respond particularly well – especially those related to circulatory issues such as diabetes.
Polychromatic Light Therapy can also be a powerful support for athletic recovery. Efficient flushing of lactic acid from muscles relies on good circulation and reduced inflammation – both of which may be improved through regular use of LED Polychromatic Lights.
Extensive research has been done on the effectiveness of Polychromatic Light Therapy. Read studies like these and more from our partners at InLight Medical or by searching the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health website. Some helpful search terms to use are: LLLT, LED photobiomodulation, or NIR.
Is light-emitting diode phototherapy (LED-LLLT) really effective?
Authors: Won-Serk Kim and R Glen Calderhead
Conclusion: Provided an LED phototherapy system has the correct wavelength for the target cells, delivers an appropriate power density and an adequate energy density, then it will be at least partly, if not significantly, effective. The use of LED-LLLT as an adjunct to conventional surgical or nonsurgical indications is an even more exciting prospect. LED-LLLT is here to stay. Read more
