Today, research has shown that light may have many more applications for the body.  In foreign countries, LED, light emitting diodes have been used by medical professionals in dentistry, dermatology and neurology, as well as other applications.

The Avalon works works on the body tissue at a cellular level, using  Monochromatic single wave light units. They are,  Near Infrared Light: which can penetrate deeply into human tissue, Red Light: not as deep. may help the skin, reduce inflammation and help in wound healing.  Blue Light: may help with sleep, SAD , increase alertness and reset the biological clock.  Working together these light waves help to increase the flow of Oxygen, Blood and Lymphatic fluid as well as promoting tissue regeneration.
