What is Syntonic Phototherapy?
Syntonic Phototherapy allows the right frequency of light to enter the eye, ultimately balancing the autonomic nervous system and allowing the eyes to team together. The visual fields expand, which allows more visual information to be accessed. Patients can then see, focus, and read better.
Benefits: Less Stress, More Focus
Conditions Improved with Syntonic Phototherapy
A few examples of conditions that are amenable to treatment with syntonics are:
- Strabismus (eye turns)
- Amblyopia (lazy eye)
- Focusing and convergence problems
- Vision-related Learning disorders – especially with reading and computer work
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome)
- Problems concentration
- Problems with peripheral awareness
- Anxiety issues secondary to vision problems
How Does Syntonic Phototherapy Work?
Have you ever noticed that you feel more alert when you see the colors of a sunrise and more calm and relaxed when you see the colors of the sunset? Did you know that our bodies were programmed to respond differently to different wavelengths of light?
Syntonic Phototherapy works by using wavelengths of light to bring the endocrine system into balance to improve treatment and healing times in a large variety of conditions.
For example, there is a certain combination of wavelengths from the blue spectrum that is able to calm anxiety and distress by decreasing the “spill” of adrenaline into the body. This is extremely useful in today’s society because anxiety and stress make it more difficult to focus our attention at near distances for tasks such as reading or working on the computer.
Who is Syntonic Phototherapy For?
Syntonic Phototherapy helps those with a stressed visual system. Some common ways visual stress or overload manifests is by not being able to:
- Team the two eyes efficiently
- Maintain proper optical focus for near tasks
- Shift focus to distance viewing
- Track lines of print accurately
- Notice visual cues in the periphery
Many eye conditions occur because there is an imbalance in the endocrine function of a body. When the autonomic nervous system is out of balance due to visual overload or stress, the visual system shuts down and compresses the amount of visual information it can take in – similar to looking through a tube rather than an picture window.
