Introducing our new Vielight treatment program!
What is it?
The Vielight is a device that stimulates higher cognitive processing capability and memory consolidation through photon stimulation.
What can the Vielight treat?
Traumatic brain injury
Alzheimer’s and dementia
Treatments are 3x a week for 6 weeks. Each treatment is 20 minutes. Price is $360, which means it’s only $20 per treatment!
How does it work?
The Vielight is a device placed on the head. Specifically calibrated light emitting diodes are positioned on the default mode network of the brain. The default mode network (DMN) is a network of interacting brain regions which is active when a person is awake but not engaged in a task, for example daydreaming. Research shows that the default mode network must disengage for proper executive function. In people with brain injuries and disorders, the DMN stays engaged constantly, interrupting proper cognitive function. Photons at red and near infrared wavelengths have been shown to restore cellular health to neurons by increasing ATP production, stimulating microcirculation, and decreasing inflammation. Stimulating the DMN with photons is thought to restore healthy function by oxygenating the blood, allowing it to disengage properly.
The intranasal diode delivers photons deep into basal ganglia and midbrain. Stimulating these areas with photons helps to regulate hormones including melatonin. Melatonin is crucial for healthy sleep!
“Results showed significant improvement in cognition, functional abilities for daily living, and improved QoL. PBM was very well tolerated, exhibiting no adverse effects.”
“There was significant improvement after 12 weeks of PBM. Increased function, better sleep, fewer angry outbursts, less anxiety, and wandering were reported post-PBM. There were no negative side effects.”
PTSD and Chronic Brain Injury:
“Testing was performed before and after transcranial LED (tLED; at 1 week, 1 month, and at 2 months after the 18th treatment) and showed significant improvements in executive function and verbal memory. There were also fewer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms reported.”
All brain disorders:
“The brain suffers from many different disorders that can be classified into three broad groupings: traumatic events (stroke, traumatic brain injury, and global ischemia), degenerative diseases (dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's), and psychiatric disorders (depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder). There is evidence that all these seemingly diverse conditions can be beneficially affected by applying light to the head.”
