About the Treatments

Each treatment is 10-30 minutes depending on the condition.

The number of treatments will depend on the condition as well as an individual’s response to therapy.

A typical course of therapy averages 8-12 visits.

A treatment effect can be observed as early as the first treatment, but is usually recognized after the 3rd or 4th visit*.

Much like an antibiotic, therapy should not be stopped when symptoms subside. Completing a full course of treatments ensures optimal healing so that the tissue isn’t left vulnerable to re-injury.

Chronic conditions will benefit by returning to Global Wellness periodically for a short series of treatments.
*It is estimated that only 10% of customers will not respond to phototherapy.
