Experience the Benefits of Infrared LED Light Therapy: Improved Skin, Reduced Pain, Fertility, and Overall Wellness

LED light therapy

ACULIGHT Pro and CellumaPro LED light therapies are non-invasive treatments that use light energy to improve various skin conditions, reduce pain, and promote overall wellness. They are cutting-edge technology that is gaining popularity among those looking for a safe, painless, and effective alternative to traditional treatments.

What is Infrared LED light therapy?

CellumaPro and Aculight Pro LED light therapies are photobiomodulation therapies that utilize low-level light therapy (LLLT) to stimulate cellular activity. The treatment involves exposing the skin to specific wavelengths of light that penetrate deep into the skin’s layers to stimulate cellular activity. Both devices use a combination of blue, red, and near-infrared light to target different skin concerns.

  • Reduced pain and inflammation: LED light therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation in the body, making it an effective treatment for conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and muscle strain.

Who can benefit from AcuLight Pro and CellumaPro LED light therapy?

LED light therapy is a versatile and safe treatment suitable for individuals of all skin types and ages. It is an effective treatment for a wide range of skin conditions, including acne vulgaris, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis. These skin conditions are often associated with inflammation, redness, and pain, all of which can be effectively managed through LED light therapy.

Additionally, LED light therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for pain and inflammation in the body. It can be used to manage a range of chronic pain conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. The treatment works by increasing circulation and reducing oxidative stress in the body, leading to a reduction in inflammation and pain.

LED light therapy is also a popular treatment option for athletes and individuals with acute injuries or strains. The treatment can be used to accelerate the body’s natural healing process, promoting tissue repair and regeneration and reducing inflammation and pain.

In addition to its applications in injury recovery and pain management, LED light therapy has also shown promising results in the field of fertility benefits. Research suggests that certain wavelengths of LED light can positively influence reproductive health by stimulating blood circulation to the reproductive organs, enhancing the production of essential hormones, and promoting overall hormonal balance.

This non-invasive and drug-free approach has gained attention as a complementary therapy for individuals experiencing fertility challenges or undergoing assisted reproductive techniques. By potentially improving egg and sperm quality, regulating menstrual cycles, and optimizing the uterine environment, LED light therapy offers a potential natural solution to support fertility and increase the chances of successful conception. However, further research is still needed to fully understand the extent of its benefits and establish specific protocols for fertility-related applications.

Overall, LED light therapy is an effective and non-invasive treatment option for individuals seeking to improve their skin health and reduce pain and inflammation. It is a safe and versatile treatment option that can benefit individuals of all ages and skin types.

What types of LED treatments do you offer?

At our clinic, we provide LED light therapy using either the Aculight Pro or CellumaPro devices. The Aculight Pro is a cutting-edge LED light therapy device specifically designed for acupuncture treatments. CellumaPro is a versatile LED light therapy device that offers a wide range of treatment options.


The CellumaPro utilizes three specific wavelengths of light: blue, red, and near-infrared. Blue light has been found effective in treating acne by targeting the bacteria that contribute to breakouts. The red light helps promote collagen production and skin rejuvenation, making it beneficial for reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and inflammation. The near-infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin, providing relief from pain and inflammation and promoting tissue repair. CellumaPro can be used for various applications, including skincare, wound healing, pain management, and more.

Aculight Pro:

The red light emitted by the Aculight Pro stimulates the energy flow within the meridians, promoting balance and harmony in the body. It can help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and improve overall well-being. The blue light is known for its antibacterial properties, making it effective in treating skin conditions and promoting a healthy complexion. The infrared light penetrates deep into the tissues, providing relief from muscular tension and promoting relaxation.

The Aculight Pro is an ideal choice for individuals seeking natural and non-invasive acupuncture therapies. By combining the principles of traditional Chinese medicine with advanced LED technology, it offers a holistic approach to address a wide range of health concerns.

What happens in an LED treatment session?

During your session at Shelly Tompkin’s acupuncture clinic in San Diego, you will first consult with Shelly to discuss your treatment goals and skin condition. Once your personalized treatment plan is created, you will lie comfortably on a treatment table while the device is placed over the treatment area. The device emits specific wavelengths of light for a predetermined amount of time, usually around 20-30 minutes. 

The treatment is completely painless and non-invasive, with no downtime required. You may feel a slight warming sensation, but this is normal and indicates that the treatment is working. You can relax or listen to music during the session, making it a comfortable and stress-free experience.

After your session, Shelly will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions and any follow-up appointments if necessary. Many individuals begin to see improvement in their skin texture, pain relief, and healing within a few sessions.

Overall, an LED treatment session is a comfortable, non-invasive, and effective treatment option for a range of health conditions. With Shelly Tompkins’ expertise and personalized care, you can achieve optimal results and improve your overall well-being.

Standalone treatment or combined with acupuncture

Standalone treatment with LED light therapy can be a highly effective treatment option for improving various skin conditions and reducing pain. However, combining LED light therapy with acupuncture can provide even greater benefits. 

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to promote healing and balance. The two treatments work synergistically by combining LED light therapy with acupuncture to stimulate cellular activity, reduce inflammation, and promote overall wellness.

Furthermore, research has shown that LED light therapy can enhance the effects of acupuncture by improving blood flow, reducing pain and inflammation, and promoting tissue repair. This combination treatment can be effective for individuals with chronic pain conditions, skin issues, and other health concerns.

Shelly Tompkins provides various integrative health services, including LED light therapy and acupuncture. With her expertise in both modalities, Shelly can create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals. 

Is there any preparation required?

There is no special preparation required for a LED light therapy session. However, it is recommended that you remove any makeup or skincare products before treatment to ensure optimal absorption of the light energy.
