NASA, the Space Agency in the USA, has researched the benefits of both Red and Near Infrared (NIR) LED light. In addition to the LED light and color, the LightWorks also offers frequency options to help stimulate the body electric.

The LightWorks Hand Paddle has 60 Red LEDs on one side. On the other side, there are 57 Near Infrared (NIR) LED lights plus 3 Red ones for a visible indication that the NIR LEDs are on. NIR light is invisible to the human eye as it lies just beyond the range of visible light.

The ancient tradition of applying specific colors for health and well-being is an option with the LightWorks. Two additional Hand Paddles are available—one with Orange and Yellow LED light and the other with Green and Blue LED light.

What the LightWorks does back to top
Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology emits single wavelengths of light—referred to as monochromatic light—that are beneficial for health. Our body cells rely on light to function. We absorb light through our skin and eyes. Light is a stimulus that creates the natural flow of electricity within. Our electrical system, in turn, produces the energy for our bodies to function.

In addition to LED technology, the LightWorks also has options for the LED light to be pulsed with specific frequencies. A French researcher discovered seven different frequencies within which healthy cells and tissues form. The purpose for applying natural cellular frequencies is to help the cells resonate with their natural healthy vibrations.


How to use the LightWorks back to top
Apply the Hand Paddle directly on the skin to any area of the body. Clothing will block the light. The LightWorks offers two options to apply the LED light and the healthy frequencies:

Automatic Option. This setting cycles through all the Modes—Constant plus each of the seven healthy frequencies. This option is timed for 24 minutes.

Illustration of person using Hand Paddle on leg
Manual Option. Select one of 8 Modes: The Constant Mode outputs LED light only—without any added frequency. Modes A through G output both LED light and a specific healthy frequency. Each Mode operates for 20 minutes.


Consistent or daily use may be needed to experience benefits.

More on Light back to top
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. Graph of Light RangesIf 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. All light is not 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.

More on Color back to top
We offer three Hand Paddles, featuring LED lights for use with the LightWorks. Each Hand Paddle features two colors—Red/Near Infrared, Orange/Yellow and Blue/Green.

Color 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 a good color to stimulate communication. 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.

Red and Near Infrared Light Hand Paddle back to top
The Hand Paddle included with the LightWorks unit offers these two choices:
Red Side
In addition to a long 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.
Stimulating, forceful and vigorous. Red is the color of power and vitality with a cheering effect. Traditionally, Red is thought to be related to nutritional metabolism, blood, liver and skin.
Near Infrared Side
The benefits of the use of Near Infrared (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 human health.
NIR light is not strictly defined as a color as it is not visible to the human eye. Three of the LEDs on this side of the Hand Paddle are Red to give a visible indication that the NIR LED lights are working.
Traditionally, NIR light is thought to be related to the eyes (from the side of the head), muscles, nerves, immune function and skin.

More on Frequencies back to top
To 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).

Vibration 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.

Vibration 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.Graph of Colors and FrequenciesThese 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 light.

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 frequencies.

How To Compare back to top
Picture of woman with Questions
There are two comparisons that are generally made when comparing the LightWorks unit to other light devices on the market. The first comparison is the output – stated as milliwatts or in some cases millicandella. The second comparison is to compare LED light to Laser light.

When comparing outputs, there is much confusion surrounding the correct way to measure the output of LED light units. Some manufacturers of LED light units are erroneously describing the light output of their units. There are three ways to describe LED lights—only one of the ways actually describes the light output or health value.
