Photobiomodulation for Pain

We have a client at Peak who suffers from arthritis. It affects her hands, and she finds on most days she cannot straighten her fingers. She tried all the conventional treatments: pain medications, heat, cold, supplements, hand exercises. Nothing relieved the pain completely, until she tried a session of photobiomodulation (PBM). She came out of Read more…


CryoFacelift and Celluma Package

The second posting on this blog was for our cryofacial service, before we even opened for business. Since then, I have touted cryotherapy to you for muscle soreness, back pain, arthritis, and even weight control, as well as a number of other conditions. This week, I want to take another look at cryotherapy as a Read more…


Photobiomodulation for the Brain

Photobiomodulation is therapeutic for a spectrum of brain conditions. Research shows it is helpful for traumatic brain injury, for Alzheimer’s, for Parkinson’s, and for depression. There is also reason to believe it’s effective for seasonal affective disorder and for ADHD. But “photobiomodulation for the brain” implies something more than therapy. It suggests enhancing higher brain Read more…



Photobiomodulation for ADHD

Photobiomodulation (PBM) for ADHD may not even be a thing. It’s not a subject that has received much study.

CHADD — “Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder” — says about 10 million Read more…


Photobiomodulation for Seasonal Affective Disorder

Is photobiomodulation useful for seasonal affective disorder? It’s a timely question. Earlier this week, Druids all over the world celebrated Alban Elued.

Photobiomodulation for Anxiety

Is photobiomodulation (PBM) useful for managing anxiety? There is surprisingly little clinical research to answer this question. A study from 2009, published in Behavioral and Brain Functions, described substantial success with a form of PBM against major depression and anxiety. Another 2018 review in Journal of Affective Disorders also found PBM to be effective in Read more…


Celluma for Roseacea

Can Celluma help to control the red-faced acne-like condition of roseacea? There are signs in the research literature that it can. Roseacea isn’t life-threatening, but it is a serious condition. It makes people feel embarrassed and self-conscious, undermining their confidence in social situations and often leading to withdrawal and depression. I wish I could tell Read more…


Photobiomodulation for Brain Disorders

I recently did a Google search for “photobiomodulation for brain disorders.” and it only turned up about 60,000 hits. This is a small number of hits for a web search, and it might ordinarily indicate that there isn’t much interest in the topic. On the other hand, the search results had a high density of Read more…
