HISTORY OF LIGHT
The successful use of light in medicine has a long history. Ancient civilizations, the Greeks, the Egyptians and the Arabs, understood the importance of light and its healing effects on our health.
“Heliotherapy” was the first natural Light Therapy successfully used as an effective medical treatment for preventing & healing various medical conditions. Hippocrates, a Greek scientist, the father of modern medicine (460BC-370BC) used to say: “Vis medicatrix naturae” – Honor the healing power of nature.
MODERN LIGHT THERAPY
In 1893, the Danish physician Niels Ryberg Finsen developed one of the first devices capable of producing technically synthesized “sunlight”. Technically synthesized light has clear advantages: its intensity and emitted light spectrum are controllable. From 1895 to 1903, he treated more than 950 patients with lupus vulgaris (tuberculosis of the skin) using filtered, technically synthesized “sunlight”.
In 1903 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his research in light therapy and his exceptional therapeutic achievements. Dr. Finsen therefore is considered the founder of modern light therapy.
