LightWorks LED Paddle has 60 Red LEDs on one side and 55 Near Infrared
(NIR) LED's on the other side. The light output from the 55 NIR LED's is
not visible to the human eye so 5 Red LED's are included on that side
of the paddle so there will be a visible indication that the NIR LEDs
are turned on. Do NOT stare directly at the LED's for any sustained
period of time. In

What the LightWorks does
Emitting Diode (LED) technology emits single wavelengths of light that
are referred to as monochromatic light. These wavelengths of light have
been proven time and time again to be beneficial to the body. Our body's
cells rely on light to function. We absorb light through our skin as
well as our eyes. Light provides a natural stimulus that creates a flow
of electricity within the body. This enables our body's natural
electrical system to produce the energy it needs to function.
addition to LED light technology the LightWorks can also pulse the LED
lights using seven specific frequencies that were
discovered by a French researcher to be those within which healthy cells
and tissues form. Applying natural cellular frequencies to the
LightWorks helps the body's cells resonate to their own natural healthy
vibrations. How to use the LightWorks
hold the LED paddle directly against the skin on any area of the body
you choose. Clothes will block the light, so try placing the LED paddle
against bare skin whenever possible. The LightWorks allows you to use
just the LED light technology or to use it with the seven specific
Automatic cycle. This default setting
cycles through all eight operating modes: a Constant LED light mode plus
each of the seven frequencies. This cycle is timed for
32-minutes before the unit beeps and turns off automatically. Manual
cycle. Allows you to specifically select one of the eight modes: the
Constant Mode outputs LED light only for 30 minutes without any added
frequencies. Modes A to G output both LED light and a specific frequency. Each mode lasts for 15 minutes and multiple modes can be run
one after the other if desired.

Light is one of mankind’s oldest therapies. Enjoying fresh air and
sunlight has been recognized for health benefits over the centuries. An
important part of treatment at early health spas was exposure to natural
sunlight for a period of time each day.
it was cold, patients would be bundled in blankets to sit in the sun,
or dressed warmly to walk about, while they exposed their faces to the
sun. The sun bathes the Earth in a broad range of electromagnetic
frequencies. We see some of these rays as visible light. Not all light
is visible. Just beyond each end of the visible color spectrum are
colors that are not visible to the naked eye—ultraviolet light at one
end and infrared light at the other end. The sun nourishes us
with light that includes a full spectrum of color through our eyes, our
skin and through our foods. In addition, however, we are subjected to
artificial lighting, processed or dead foods, poisonous food additives,
toxic chemicals in our air and water, off-gassing from furniture and
building materials, and harried lifestyles. That’s enough to give us a
quick picture why we may lack light or specific colors as nutrients. Here’s
a story that reveals how we depend on light: “A young doctor, a hunter,
observed that in some years, prize-winning deer antlers were much
larger than usual, but in others, even the very best of the
prize-winning antlers were far below average in size. The physical
development of young animals and ducks in the wild matched in degrees
the size of the deer antlers, or lack of it. Investigation showed that
the years in which the deer grew large antlers and in which there was
good physical development of young animals in the wild, were clearly
years with high rates of sunshine hours.” (Flax Oil, Johanna Budwig) Live
food as in fresh vegetables and fruits are a major source of light. For
example, through the process of photosynthesis, plants store the energy
of sunlight. Chewing starts the digestive process to release the stored
light to nourish us. Native cultures recognized how the color of herbs
and flowers had specific healing qualities.

We offer three Hand Paddles, featuring LED lights for use with the LightWorks. Each Hand Paddle features two colors.
has been used for health for centuries. Each color is known for
specific properties and benefits. Nature provides light and specific
colors for our health in the form of food—vegetables, fruits and protein
foods—and herbs. The colors of the clothes we choose as well as
our home décor also influence us. For example, blue is known to be
calming, relaxing and also a good color to stimulate communication. This
means a room with predominantly blue colors will create calm. Red, on
the other hand, is known to be vitalizing and a good color to increase
excitement or emotions. This means a room with predominantly red colors
will be stimulating.
Near Infrared Red Side
benefits of the use of Near Infrared Red (NIR) LED light caught public
attention with NASA experiments using NIR LED light for plant growth in
space. This research was expanded to apply NIR LED light to benefit
NIR light is not strictly defined as a color as it
is not visible to the human eye. Five of the LEDs on this side of the
Hand Paddle are Red to give a visible indication that the LED lights are
working. NIR is considered to be beneficial for eyes (from the side of the head), muscles, nerves, immune function and skin.
addition to a history of use, Red as applied through LED light, has
been recently researched for benefits to human life. Red is considered a
hot or stimulating color. In nature, the element hydrogen is red.
forceful and vigorous. Red is associated with power and vitality with a
cheering effect. Red is also considered to be beneficial for
nutritional metabolism, blood, liver and wounds.
More on Frequencies
understand the use of frequencies for well-being, general health and
relaxation, it is first necessary to recognize that everything,
absolutely everything, is vibrating … even seemingly solid materials are
made up of atoms that are vibrating. Our bodies are composed of cells
and surrounding material that is constantly vibrating. Frequency is used
to explain the different rates at which objects and cells vibrate. The
speed of vibration is measured by the number of cycles an object
vibrates in one second. Cycles per second are expressed as Hertz (Hz).
is the language of Nature. Animals and plants are usually more
sensitive to vibrations than we humans. Sensitivity to vibrations
enables birds to navigate and migrate with incredible accuracy. Insects
are attracted to the vibration of plants. For example, when the immune
systems of plants are weakened from lack of nutrients and too many
toxins in soils, damaging insects are attracted to destroy the plants.
produces both sound and light. Light is produced by higher frequencies
or more rapid vibrations than sounds. In addition to light that we can
see, there is light below and above the visual spectrum. Light that we
see ranges from 4x1014 to 7.12x1014 Hz.These frequencies are in the
GigaHertz range. To simplify, rather than express such high numbers as
Hertz, light is usually measured by wavelength or nanometers. This
diagram shows how the wavelength at the Red end of the light spectrum is
longer than wavelengths at the violet end. The higher the frequency the
shorter the wavelength—Red light vibrates more slowly than violet
Sound is produced by slower frequencies than light. It is
easier to express the electromagnetic frequencies of sound using Hertz.
In addition to audible sound, there is infrasound that is below the
hearing threshold and ultrasound that is above the human hearing
spectrum. Sound that we hear ranges from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. The
LightWorks frequencies, although silent, fall within the range of sound
LightWorks provides two monochromatic single frequency light arrays using Red and Near Infrared LEDs.

allows you to select each of the seven specific frequencies.
