Testimonial: Red Light Therapy Gave Me My Life Back

Prior to having my two year old, I tested top score for my first Dan Black Belt, ran a half marathon every year, participated in a couple of triathlons a year, and worked out at least four times a week. I felt spiritually, emotionally, and physically at the top of my health game. I loved being around others, started training as an actress alongside my actor children, and actively sought to inspire others to live their best lives.

Fast forward to a few life circumstances, hormonal chaos from delivering a baby after an eight and a half year hiatus (she is stinking cute and the biggest blessing), a 4/5 day a week traveling husband, not being able to sleep more than four hours a night, managing three kiddos and their acting careers, and training to start mine .


I found my health in complete shambles. I am all about keeping yourself in a healthy mental state through spiritual focus, but there wasn't enough spiritual growth that could convince my physical body to wake up. My health plummeted. I also suffer from a rare disorder called Vocal Chord Dysfunction. It is often triggered by environmental factors, diet, and stress, all which fell apart or affected me once I had my last child. I often found myself answering the, "How are you doing" question with "I'm just so tired". To say that I felt tired all of the time was an understatement. I felt like walking death. I would manage enough to get what I needed to get done, but struggled to find the energy to workout, meal prep, and enjoy recreational time with my kids, friends, or family. My relationships suffered, my professional advancement suffered, and my health suffered. I began this up and down roller coaster with my weight. Falling apart physically was causing me to fall apart mentally and spiritually. I knew I had to do something.

My husband introduced me to a technology called photobiomodulation. If you don't read anything else in this post, pay attention. This might save your life like it did mine. Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) is the technical term for Low Level Laser Therapy. It is a light therapy using lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation. A red light source is placed near or on the skin. Red light influences repair in diseased and damaged tissues to speed up wound healing and tissue regeneration, increase circulation, reduce inflammation, reduce chronic pain, and help restore normal cellular function. It has been proven to help with pain, body recovery, better sleep, and the list goes on and on. You can read more here The technology is often found in the form of handhelds, but we discovered a company that actually made a FULL BODY LIGHT POD!!!! You can read more about it here

The technology has even been used to treat traumatic brain injuries! Now, for the admittedly vain people out there (I slowly raise my hand), because of the nature of what it does, it can be used as a beauty regimen, reducing wrinkles, treating acne, and the overall health of your skin. As a matter of fact, some areas that are already hip to this technology, use it solely as a beauty service.

I think this just fixed all of my problems! Okay, on a serious note. I tried it once. Then, I tried it again, and again consistently for weeks. The results left me speechless. Not only did I notice that I was sleeping more than four hours a night, I had more energy to workout and prep my day for a healthier lifestyle. My nagging knee issue is no more, and my skin feels AMAZING!!! My focus is better and I just function so much more like the April I've known myself to be. Did I also mention that I have baby bottom soft skin? If you are a mom, I UNDERSTAND you. You are tired, and underappreciated, and pour into everyone and everything until you have nothing left. Please do something for yourself and invest in restoring your body.

I feel like I've gained my life back, and that is only after a few weeks. It's intrigued me to do more studies of use for this type of therapy, and the miracles they are performing with PBMT are absolutely amazing! Had I not tried it myself, I'm not sure I'd be a believer, but I have a fully restored life to prove its power. I can't express enough how amazing this therapy is. If you are suffering with any type of ailment, I suggest you find a XscapePain location ASAP, and try it! It might just save you the same way it saved me. I feel like a new woman with fully restored mental, physical, and spiritual health. I can't thank XscapePain Frisco enough for introducing me to this very unconventional form of full body restoration. I look forward to getting to know myself and my body again.
