Pain is the communication between the body and brain when there is an injury, disease or overuse. Healing alleviates pain, rather than pain killer drugs which just mask the pain. Traditional narcotic pain management stops the pain but can have potential side effects and does not heal the cause of the pain. The drugs can cause addiction and often results in a cascading programme of more and more powerful pain killers.
You may have heard of it referred to as Blue Light or Red Light therapy, or maybe DPL or reVive Light Therapy.
