Alternative Pain Management With NovoTHORⓇ
Red Light Therapy treats full-body pain
Trying different pain management methods only to find nothing that works? Hopelessly searching for relief is painstaking, let alone the physical pain you’re enduring. Finding pain relief shouldn’t be this difficult.
In comes a new and effective solution—Red Light Therapy.
Red Light Therapy targets your pain on the cellular level, working on the source of your pain and not just symptoms like other treatments. Focusing on your muscles’ pain points reduces the built-up oxidative stress in your tissues to mitigate your ailments.
Pain relief treatments should be convenient, effective and drug-free.
ICAC uses the NovoTHORⓇ whole body light pod to evenly apply the red and near infrared wavelengths to your body, like a tanning bed would. This process stimulates your muscle tissues for pain relief.
You’re just one 12-minute treatment session away from improved pain relief!

Red Light Therapy FAQS
How does Red Light Therapy work?
The light targets the cause of your inflammation on a cellular level by reducing oxidative stress, which is known to contribute to chronic inflammation and chronic diseases like cancer, cardiovascular diseases and pulmonary diseases. By reducing the oxidative stress, you can reduce your pain.
How can whole body red light therapy be used?
How many sessions are usually needed?
Short answer: It depends.
It depends! Every person is unique, which means their physiological reaction to Red Light Therapy will be specific to them. As a rule of thumb, acute injuries and inflammation from muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, etc. can typically be improved within 2-4 sessions.
For long-term and chronic conditions, it could take as many as 12 sessions to start seeing significant improvement. Weekly or bi-weekly sessions may be needed afterwards to continue pain management.
How does it compare with other therapies?
Most other alternative treatments in Colonial Heights, VA focus on addressing your symptoms instead of the problem itself. Red Light Therapy is a safe, effective, and drug-free therapy that has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation on a cellular level by targeting its source.
How is it applied?
ICAC uses the NovoTHORⓇ Whole Body Light Pod to conduct our Red Light Therapy sessions. This new-age machinery uses an equal power distribution light to help heal your entire body at once. One session lasts 12 minutes.
As the only NovoTHORⓇ public provider in Virginia and therefore Colonial Heights, we have the most effective treatment available for pain management.
Does red light therapy hurt?
It does not heat tissue like a laser would. Instead, this treatment uses red and near-infrared light safe for topical use. However, you will feel a slight warming sensation from the increase in circulation throughout your body.
Occasionally, clients experience mild fatigue, discomfort or aches after a session, but these symptoms should disappear after 24-48 hours. Give us a call immediately if your discomfort lasts past this time period.
