OF red light therapy

what is Red Light Therapy

Photonic Red Light Therapy is a natural therapy which works by promoting the body’s own healing and immune responses. Red light is used as an alternative to needles to access traditional acupuncture points stimulating tissue and increasing blood flow to the affected area.

Equine Red Light Therapy

The Original Red Light Therapy Company have been successfully utilizing the McLaren Method of Red Light Photonic Therapy in the treatment of horses since 1996. This credible, complementary concept was first researched in Australia by our associate Dr Brian McLaren, a Clinical Scientist and Veterinarian. Dr McLaren developed the comprehensive equine red light therapy system (The McLaren Method) and DIY kits to assist horse and dog owners that we still use today.

Our robust, Australian made lights come with multiple settings and a five-year guarantee. Most importantly, they can be purchased along with guides developed by Dr McLaren to ensure the most effective treatment of a wide range of horse and dog ailments.

“The ability to reduce inflammation, bruising, reduce pain from wasp stings, headaches, severity of cold/flu and many more too numerous to mention. We have several red lights and they are kept near our first aid supplies and with our travelling vet box as the first option to treat most conditions.

“In addition to treating specific conditions the general treatment procedure on the ‘standard points’ has always been a great boost to general wellbeing on animals and ourselves.”
