It’s true – and you can use this innate luminescence to your advantage through phototherapy treatments that mirror back your body’s energy. Our practitioners specialize in innovative modalities and services that support the body’s natural healing abilities, helping patients in Syracuse, New York, and the surrounding area live well.

Phototherapy, also called light therapy or photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy, is a scientifically supported therapeutic intervention. This non-invasive, revolutionary treatment helps improve overall wellbeing by reflecting or shining light into the body to encourage a response at the cellular level. Phototherapy may be used to support several wellness goals, such as:
- Minor aches and pain relief
- Healthier inflammatory responses
- Natural wound healing
- Sports performance enhancement
- Improved mental clarity
- Rejuvenated skin appearance
- Quicker muscle recovery after exercise
- Intelligent aging
- Fertility health
PBM therapy taps into the body’s cellular processes using specific wavelengths of light, such as near-infrared, red, and blue wavelengths, to yield a response. During treatment, this light may be shined into the body through an external device or reflected back into the body using patches. The light absorbed is converted into chemical energy, which triggers healthy cellular activity and promotes tissue repair.
The Science Behind Phototherapy
Since the advent of lasers, it’s been widely known that low levels of visible or near-infrared (NIR) light can reduce pain, inflammation, and edema. It’s been used to promote healing in wounds, tissues, and nerves, and prevent damage. This scientific area has expanded to include photobiomodulation and photobiostimulation using non-coherent light.
Research shows the body rhythmically emits light undetectable to the naked eye. Photon emissions are released through changes in energy metabolism and can be seen using a sensitive charge-coupled-device (CCD) camera. Human light (biophoton emissions) that emanates from the skin may be more intense in certain areas than others, and it changes throughout the day.
Using a proprietary form of phototherapy, we can use the body’s heat and reflect different wavelengths of light to support certain physiological responses. The patches mirror the body’s energy back into itself and signal biochemical changes (photobiomodulation) that are measurable through blood and urine testing.
Our Lifewave Phototherapy Patches
It’s what we do every day that matters most. LifeWave phototherapy patches use wearable, non-transdermal technology to encourage targeted biochemical changes within the body. They use the infrared light emitted from your body to encourage the biological responses that are most essential to our patients. The LifeWave patches we offer are designed to support several needs, including:
- Youth renewal patches: Look and feel younger with patches that promote relaxation, healthy inflammatory response, and a more radiant complexion.
- Energy patches: Using the power of light, boost your natural energy and endurance at the cellular level.
- Sleep patches: Naturally elevate melatonin for a better night’s rest, which is essential for overall wellness.
- Performance patches: Support healing, restoration, recovery, metabolic response, and more, so your body can perform its best.
- Fast relief patches: Alleviate aches, pains, and discomfort fast.
LifeWave products are backed by independent clinical studies and patent protected. By combining the power of light and the body’s innate ability to heal itself, we can provide customized wellness solutions that increase quality of life for our patients and help them thoughtfully cultivate better health on a daily basis.
Our 5-Day Phototherapy Reset
Rebalance your body with the 5-Day Phototherapy Reset. Using phototherapy patches, this program facilitates the natural flow of energy within the body at targeted acupuncture points. The patches restore the energy flow throughout the body’s meridians (a network of energy pathways that connect to organ systems) and facilitate healing. Within just 5 days, this patented, proprietary form of phototherapy supports several health benefits, such as:
- Reduced inflammation
- Elevated bioelectrical activity
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Higher energy and stamina levels
Best of all, it’s a low-maintenance program that’s done at home – clients only need to take a few minutes out of their day to apply the patches as indicated by the placement guide. The patches look similar to a Band-Aid for discreet wellness support that doesn’t interfere with your lifestyle.
