Prior to making Red Light LED/Laser Therapy available, I basically limited myself to a more thorough traditional table massage, and my own modality, MAT(E)™, which works with the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). I get the best results with MAT(E)™, but even better results when the two are provided as a combo treatment. Besides, most people do not consider it a massage unless they have been "oiled up and rubbed down."
The issue arose as to how to treat myself when needed. Obviously, it can be extremely difficult to massage yourself. It tends to be less efficient and less effective - how do you reach all those areas yourself? It's even worse trying to treat yourself with MAT(E)™, because passive mobility is a major part of the treatment - that is, the therapist has to move the patient (the patient does not move himself). Plus, I'm the only one who knows the MAT(E)™ modality, so I can't get the treatment from someone else!
After developing several conditions that needed treatment, I knew that even my more thorough traditional massage was not good enough, and my MAT(E)™, though very effective, was not practical for self treatment, I researched alternatives. Red Light LED/Laser Therapy came out on top for something I could use to treat myself. It also turned out to be a great complement to my other two modalities when combined with them, for my patients.
So, before making Red Light LED/Laser Therapy available to my patients, I spent time successfully treating my own issues, plus gaining experience with some simple case studies with select patients. I am confident that this therapy, especially when a treatment plan and protocols are followed and when combined with my other two modalities, will be very effective for what it can treat.
