“I have been seeing Jess for a variety of physical problems due age and activity related stress to by body over a number of years. The main problems are sciatic nerve issues on my right body side and with arthritic damage to my hands, and particularly my thumbs where I have had constant pain and reduced function. I have been working with Jess on a treatment schedule of Graston and Life Light treatment and have seen dramatic improvement in both hands which has substantially reduce pain and increased function over a time frame of about 3 months”.

“I first heard of Light Therapy from Jess during body work for a hamstring injury. It was nagging for over a month and limited my speed somewhat at Badwater. Since then I’ve had 3 treatments within 10 days and able to run and do deadlifts with no pain. Truly amazing technology”
This is a before and after picture of a Collegiate cross country runner with Achilles Tendinitis. The after picture was taken just 24 hours after being treated with Life Light’s device. Three days later this runner ran another race and set a personal record.
This patient was seen after severely spraining his ankle. After three Life Light treatments, over a 4 day period, his swelling was not only gone, but he also had a full range of motion with NO PAIN! After 8 days, he was back out on the soccer field competing again.
In the brief period that I have been able to use the Life Light in my practice, I have been able to see incredible results with my patients! This tool has been able to help my patients get results much faster than I have been to achieve in the past. One of the first patients that I used the Life Light on came in after severely spraining his ankle playing soccer. After 3 sessions of the Life Light over a 4 day period, his swelling was completely gone and he had full range of motion with NO PAIN! After 8 days, he was back on the field competing again. After seeing results like this from using Life Light, I can’t help but wish that I had this tool for myself back when I was in high school and college! The results that my patients have seen have them excited and recommending the Life Light to their friends and other patients! This is a tremendous tool that will be valuable in any health care office. I’m excited to see how many more people I will be able to help in the future using the Life Light!

“ I’ve been using light therapy for a couple of years with positive results in relieving joint pain and inflammation. When Rick advised me to try using the Life Light device for a sinus infection I was a bit skeptical but I followed his recommendation. After 4 treatments over the course of a weekend I was back practicing Monday morning – no headache, no runny nose and my energy levels were back to normal. I can’t wait to keep exploring the clinical benefits of light therapy with my patients. Thanks Life Light”

I own and operate a chiropractic office in Canada and we have a high number of athletes, ranging from Olympians and professionals to weekend warriors. I have an office whose auxiliary equipment reflects this clientele. Having just purchased the life light, I myself got hurt. I pulled a calf muscle early Sunday morning while playing tennis. It was a very humid morning and I was dehydrated from a social event the night before. The pain was incredibly intense. It took me several minutes to get to my car. This was my dilemma: I had a golf match in a few hours for our playoffs in our club championships that I could not re-schedule. With the pain being so intense, it was try and play or forfeit. I decided to drive to my office and used several life light protocols for approximately one hour and a few Advil’s. I attempted to try and golf. Amazingly, with a golf cart and a significant limp, I got a round and was able to play (and win) my match. There was absolutely no way two hours prior I could have played at all. The pain went from a 10/10 to a manageable 3 or 4. Without the life light, I would have forfeited my match. It was a great personal positive outcome that allowed me to have further confidence in the therapy. Thank you Rick and life light.

Patient with severe post concussion symptoms from a motor vehicle accident suffered from nausea, multiple headaches daily, and blurry vision. I used the Life Light machine on her, headaches disappeared, nausea is gone. I am very impressed.

This particular athlete was accustomed to having to hobble a bit after sitting/lying for a long period of time when his ankle was not being used. After his first session with the Life Light therapy, he messaged me later completely blown away. He was able to go straight into walking on his ankle without the hobbling and had not even noticed he had done that until a while after. He was able to forget he had an injury and move and act like he would have if he was not injured. The Life Light combined with the soft tissue manipulation helped him to get over that last bit of stiffness he was still experiencing in his ankle.
Life Light provider, A.T.C., B.S., M.S.
Hamstring strain grade 2.
The athlete was seen about 3 hours after the injury took place. He was scanned by the sports medicine physician to determine the full extent of the injury at which time it was diagnosed as a grade 2 sprain to the biceps femoris. Less than 48 hours later, he was scanned again using the diagnostic ultrasound and the doctor, not knowing that the Life Light was applied both days using the protocols for inflammation and soft tissue healing, sent me the pictures of what he saw. His message to me that accompanied the pictures, “No hyperaemia… Well done.”
Life Light provider, A.T.C., B.S., M.S.
Great effective tool.
The Life Light has been a great addition to my practice for both the rehab and massage departments. I have used it on a cross section of injuries from neck pain due to axial loaded impact to a tib/fib ORIF post op. I have had my clients report significant improvements. Whether chronic or acute, the Life Light paired with the soft tissue manipulation made a huge difference that allowed me to progress the athlete’s recovery on a continuous basis.

Letter from a Life Light patient:
Dear Life Light,
My name is Sergio Franco. I had an unfortunate accident on January 21st 2014 that left me with a severely broken left leg. The tibia and fibula bones were both broken which required surgery.
After surgery I started the healing process. The treatment and knowledge I have received has been invaluable.
I began walking again a couple months after the accident. However I plateaued a bit after a certain stage in my recovery. It was then, that I was offered the opportunity to try something new and different with the Life Light Infrared machine.
At first I was skeptical, but the relief I experienced after the first session with the machine was amazing. This machine became pivotal in my recovery by speeding up the healing process, reducing swelling, reducing pain and helping regain flexibility.
I am forever grateful for all the benefits of the Life Light Infrared Machine.
