LED Light Therapy

Ultimate Fitness York

It's time to end pain and kick-start healing

We are one of the first therapeutic companies within the UK to harness LED Light Therapy. Originally pioneered by NASA to speed up astronauts’ tissue healing and repair, light therapy has been used clinically for over 30 years within the US. Using the power and restorative properties of light-waves to support our healing process, it’s safe and effective. Light therapy can significantly reduce pain, increase circulation, reduce inflammation, accelerate healing and encourages  regeneration. Effective for soft tissue and sports injuries, arthritic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, wound healing and an extensive number of other medical problems, when combined with Deep Tissue Sports Massage, the results have been heralded as miraculous and life transforming.  

Thousands of peer-reviewed clinical trials and studies on red light therapy have been conducted over the last 3 decades and published in major scientific journals. The evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of its effectiveness & safety, and the FDA has approved light therapy for the treatment of joint pain, reduction of wrinkles, and many other conditions.

My knee was so badly damaged and I had been in agony. I was unable to walk due to the swelling and pain. Deep Tissue Therapy gave me movement to the knee and assisted me in day to day activities. I then tried Light Therapy to speed up recovery. After only 2 sessions I was sleeping without pain! After just 5 sessions my knee is feeling unbelievable! Pain just a slight niggle. Wow. Movement incredible. I have just walked around the garden a couple of times with NO STICK. No pain and no sense of giving way. Like a normal person! Wow. Thank you so so much - you have given me my life back!
