In 2000 there was hydro-therapy, aroma therapy, and even La Stone. On the other hand, there was a discipline called color and light therapy, not very original nor unique. So Lumia Science standardized it with “Lumia Therapy”. Lumia is color and light therapy and we are committed to applying only the sciences of color and light therapy.
Lumia Science will:
- Connect Spas, Salons, Resorts & Individuals with Lumia Therapists.
- Continue to provide the most up-to-date products, service and education regarding Lumia Therapy.
- Stay committed to discovering ways to substantiate color & light therapy (“LUMIA”) worldwide as an alternative healing modality.
With over 45 years of independent worldwide research to support it, light therapy has proven its ability to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues. Light (visible and non-visible) has been shown to effect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level.
Although the exact mechanism of action is still undergoing study, most experts agree, light (photons) are absorbed by the skin and underlying tissue and triggers biological changes within the body in a process known as “photo-biomodulation”. This means monochromatic light (single color light) speeds up certain cellular metabolic processes (increasing the activity of the mitochondria, changing the electrophysiological properties of the cell membrane and activating enzymes, which, in turn, activate key chemical reactions). What is known is that monochromatic light increases oxygen and blood flow, stimulates nerve functioning, decreases inflammation, increases mobility, and facilitates pain reduction and muscle relaxation.
All this is accomplished without the risks associated with drugs or invasive surgery. The results speak for themselves.
