The use of low levels of visible or near infrared light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing cell death and tissue damage has been known for over forty years.”
– Prof. Michael Hamblin, Harvard Medical School, Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Mass General Hospital.
Low-level light therapy is based on science; it is not an alternative medicine treatment. More than 200 low-level light therapy clinical trials and more than 1,000 published laboratory studies have shown that low-level light therapy is scientifically proven more effective and safer than anti-inflammatory medications for a whole range of musculoskeletal conditions.

How It Works
The use of low-level light therapy (LLLT) for pain relief, inflammation and edema reduction, wound healing, deep tissue and nerve healing, and prevention of cell death and tissue damage has been scientifically known for more than 40 years–since the time lasers were invented. Low-level light therapy stimulates a photochemical effect in cells that produces a chemical change. Low-level light therapy is based on science and is NOT an alternative medicine.
What It Treats
Low level light therapy is used to treat:
- Chronic and acute pain
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Sprains and strains
- Wound healing
What You’ll Feel
Low level light therapy is a pain-free treatment with no adverse effects or side effects. Most conditions respond well with between 5 to 10 treatment sessions. Occasionally, people experience results after the first or second session. Chronic conditions may take more sessions.
Dr. Santo is the first and only qualified LLLT provider in the Harrisburg, PA area. Dr. Santo was personally trained in the theory and application of laser therapy by James Carroll, founder and CEO of Thor Laser, United Kingdom, who is considered by many to be the leading authority on low-level light therapy.
