Red Light Therapy – Healing Pain, Injuries & Improving Sleep,
with Susan Poole
Red Light Therapy is becoming the world’s fastest growing and most well-known form of light therapy. Known also as photobiomodulation, near infrared light therapy or previously also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT), this therapy holds many highly prized benefits with it. Biohackers are using it for keeping fit, trim and strong, athletes to improve their performance and recovery, the beauty industry for facial rejuvenation, anti-wrinkle treatments, anti-celllulite and weight loss, sports practitioners to improve healing of injuries, the elderly for healing stubborn wounds and improving brain function. The list goes on. This episode deserves your attention to discover a little more about how you can use it to benefit your health, your pet’s health, your family and friends’ health.
Today we will be listening to an enterprising and innovative woman who has been at the forefront of using and inventing devices for red & near-infra red light therapy.
Susan Poole originally trained as an exercise physiologist. She holds two degrees from the University of Western Australia – a Bachelor of Human Movement and Exercise Science, and a Masters Degree in Education.
Sue worked in the field of human rehabilitation throughout the 1980s and 90s before she left the industry to work with horses. Through her open minded exploration and research, she began to use red light therapy to help animals heal faster from injuries. From this Sue, moved on to create her very own Red Light Therapy Pads company, now servicing not only animals but humans too.
