The DreamSpa™ is a professional quality consumer phototherapy device that utilizes state of the art LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) to deliver seven types of light therapy.
The DreamSpa™ was designed to deliver the most advanced form of phototherapy based on the latest groundbreaking research and science in the fields of Phototherapy, Biophotonics, Tissue Optics, Bioenergetics, Cellular Communication and Anti-Aging.
Phototherapy is the use of sunlight or specific wave lengths of light with LEDs (light emitting diodes), lasers, or full spectrum lighting to achieve a therapeutic effect.
Phototherapy has been commonly used to treat neonatal jaundice, skin disorders, sleep disorders, and some psychiatric disorders. Light therapy directed at the skin is also used to treat acne vulgaris, eczema, and neonatal jaundice. Light therapy is used to treat circadian rhythm disorders such as delayed sleep phase syndrome and is also used to treat seasonal affective disorder, with some support for its use also with non-seasonal psychiatric disorders. Other applications of light therapy include accelerated wound healing, hair growth, improvement in blood properties and circulation, and sinus-related disorders.
Phototherapy has been studied extensively in Europe and the US for over forty years and has been the subject of over 3,500 scientific papers, published worldwide. There are no reported negative side effects to the therapy, which is painless, non-toxic and complements many traditional therapies. Phototherapy has been used for years in numerous medical procedures, medical spas, sports clinics, the offices of aestheticians and dermatologists, by NASA and consumers around the world.
In 1991, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development along with the National Institute of Neuralgic Disorders and Stroke declared phototherapy to be safe. Phototherapy is non-invasive and considered safe enough to be used in the Milwaukee Children’s Hospital in Wisconsin to energize cells and prevent growth of chemo-induced mouth sores that keep patients from eating.
NASA uses phototherapy systems in the international space station and on space transport vehicles to counteract the effects of zero gravity on the human body. Astronauts in space experience bone loss along with muscle and organ atrophy; are affected by disrupted circadian rhythms and have difficulty with wound healing. Dr. Harry T. Whelan, a researcher and phototherapy consultant to NASA, has successfully utilized LEDs to treat wounds; third degree burns and brain cancer. Phototherapy research is being conducted worldwide and includes use of LEDs to reverse Alzheimer’s, to reduce the effects of Parkinson’s, to treat Macular Degeneration and much more.
LED Light Therapy is safe for all skin types and ages. Contraindications are rare and would include photo sensitivity due to medication or certain herbal supplements, seizures and a clinical diagnosis of Mania. Anyone with medically diagnosed eye disease should check with their ophthalmologist first before using light therapy. Consult your physician if you use photosensitive drugs, are pregnant, are diagnosed with eye disease or have any concerns about using phototherapy.
LED lights, or light-emitting diodes, are highly efficient sources of light that last longer than traditional light bulbs. The structure of the LED light is amazingly simple and strong; it is completely different than that of the light bulb.
LED lights have a variety of advantages over other light sources: high-levels of brightness and intensity, high-efficiency, low-voltage and current requirements, low radiated heat, high reliability, resistant to shock and vibration, no UV Rays and long source life.
Photo rejuvenation or LED Light Therapy is the use of various colors of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that create a healing or an anti-aging effect.
Exact wavelengths of light emitted from LED’s stimulate and energize cellular activity, which in turn creates collagen and elastin for Anti-Aging benefits, stimulates the production of serotonin, accelerates wound healing, reduces pain and the effects on inflammation.
LED Light Therapy has become recognized as one of the safest, quickest, and most affordable ways to achieve younger-looking skin. It’s referred to by several different names including: PhotoRejuvenation, Anti-Aging LED Light Therapy, LED Light Therapy or Red Light Therapy. Blue Light Therapy and Near-Infrared Light Therapy.
The DreamSpa utilizes the latest advances in LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). Our LEDs are based on a new generation of microchips that generate electromagnetic energy in the form of radiant light. There are no reported negative side effects to the therapy, which is painless, non-toxic and compliments many traditional therapies.
The DreamSpa™ uses 3 of the safest, most tested and researched wavelengths in history: 470nm Blue, 670nm Red and 870nm Near Infrared.
LEDs do not generate heat, have a longer service life, require far less electricity than Lasers, are non-invasive and safe for home use. Lasers generate high levels of heat, can destroy or vaporize tissues, are expensive and produce only one wavelength.
Laser as well as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments are restricted to licensed professional technicians. LEDs are preferable to Lasers because they can be adapted to generate multiple wavelengths and are more efficient for treating tissues. The effect of Lasers is more localized than LEDs.
Lasers are like one note on a violin; the DreamSpa’s LED system is like having the whole orchestra. LEDs can cover a much larger area, this feature enables the DreamSpa™ to bathe the face with enough radiant energy in 30 minutes to fill the entire body.
The ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun or a UV tanning lamp convert 7-dehydrocholesterol into vitamin D3. UV light is also responsible for skin damage and cancer.
The DreamSpa™ only uses wavelengths of light that are safe and not in the UV range. Therefore, the DreamSpa™ does not stimulate the human body to produce Vitamin D. Extensive research on Vitamin D supplementation is available for anyone concerned about Vitamin D deficiency
Unlike many technologies on the market today, LED Light Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated by hundreds of universities, medical labs and most importantly NASA.
There are over 3500 reports and documents written on this technology. NASA has produced the best research documentation to date supporting the effectiveness of LEDs to stimulate plants and human tissue.
True anti-aging is measured by the rate and ability of cells to repair and regenerate. During the process of aging, an organism accumulates damage to macromolecules, its cells, its tissues and its organs. This accumulated damage is the result of oxidation damage to the cell contents caused by free radicals, as well as other things that can cause aging. Different aging rates include differences in the efficiency of DNA repair, types and quantities of antioxidant enzymes, rates of free radical production and rates of occurrence of DNA damage. Science has shown that certain wavelengths of light stimulate the body’s ability to regenerate, resulting in enhanced cellular metabolism, cellular repair, tissue regeneration, increased oxygen and nutrient delivery and collagen production. This is the most natural form of anti-aging: effective, safe and non-invasive.
Biophotons are fundamental particles of light or photons that are emitted by cells. They transmit information within a cell and between cells. DNA stores and releases photons; this is called “biophotonic emission”. The phenomenon of how information is transmitted within living systems has been extensively studied by a bio-physicist named Fritz Albert Popp. Popp discovered that biophotons provide the vehicle through which information is transmitted. DNA uses a variety of frequencies as an information tool suggesting a feedback system of perfect communication via waves which encode and transfer information.
Another fascinating characteristic of biophotons is their coherence. In a healthy state the emission is more coherent than anything that man has ever developed. Quantum coherence means that subatomic particles are able to co-operate. These waves know about each other and are highly interlinked by bands of electromagnetic fields. They can communicate with each other. It is analogous to an orchestra where all photons are playing together but as individual instruments that are able to carry on playing individual parts. Therefore, biophotonic emission is a perfect communication system that transfers information to many cells across the body.
Another important characteristic of biophotons is that they follow biological rhythms (i.e., daily, weekly, monthly and annually). In healthy individuals the biophotons are extremely coherent and in rhythm with the world. In seriously ill people (i.e., cancer) they have lost their natural rhythm and coherence. The lines of communication are scrambled. In effect, their light is going out. In a stressed state, the rate of biophotonic emissions increase. This is a defense mechanism that is attempting to return to homeostasis. Therefore, biophotonic emission is a sort of correction mechanism in living systems.
Your brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which use electricity to communicate with each other. The combination of millions of neurons sending signals at once produces an enormous amount of electrical activity in the brain, which can be detected using sensitive medical equipment such as an EEG. The electrical activity of the brain is commonly called a BrainWave pattern, because of its cyclic, “wave-like” nature. With the discovery of brainwaves came the discovery that electrical activity in the brain will change depending on what the person is doing. For instance, the brainwaves of a sleeping person are vastly different from the brainwaves of someone wide-awake. Over the years, the development of more advanced and more sensitive equipment has brought us closer to understanding exactly what brainwaves represent and what they tell us about a person’s health and state of mind.
Researchers have found that not only are brainwaves representative of mental states, but they can be stimulated to change a person’s mental state, and this in turn can help with a variety of issues. Brainwave entrainment refers to the brain’s electrical response to rhythmic sensory stimulation, such as pulses of sound or light. When the brain is given a stimulus, through the ears, eyes or other senses, it emits an electrical charge in response. The external rhythm is reproduced (entrained) in the brain in the form of these electrical impulses. If the rhythm becomes fast and consistent enough, it can start to resemble the natural internal rhythms of the brain, or brainwaves. Entrainment is a principle of physics. It is defined as the synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles. Brainwave entrainment technology has been around for a long time, which has generated vast amounts of information to support the safety of its use.
Some form of brainwave entrainment happens to you throughout the day. The brain entrains to any rhythmic stimulus that you might come across. For example, the brain will entrain to the frame rates in the TV or computer monitors; the steady rhythm of highway lines pulsing past you when driving; the continuous crash of waves at an ocean, the steady crackling of a fire. The principles of entrainment appear in chemistry, neurology, biology, pharmacology, medicine and more. Research has discovered that brainwave entrainment can be very helpful with increasing relaxation, lowering stress, enhancing creativity, improving mental clarity. Our Brainwave Entrancement™ feature gently and naturally entrains Beta (wide-awake or stressed) brainwaves to Alpha (calm & focused) and Theta (deep relaxation and regeneration).
The DreamSpa™ can benefit anyone who desires to maintain or restore youthful vitality and energy and a more youthful appearance. If you are overworked, mentally or physically stressed, not sleeping well, or just tired, the DreamSpa offers an effective, safe and non-invasive way to recapture and improve the quality of your life. DreamSpa™ sessions are excellent for alleviating and reversing fatigue, overwhelm, stress, SAD, sleeplessness, brain fog, aches and pains, the undesired effects of aging skin and hair loss or thinning.
LED Light Therapy is safe for all ages and skin types. LED phototherapy is so safe it is even used in the Milwaukee Children’s Hospital with children suffering from cancer. Contraindications are rare and would include photo sensitivity due to medication or certain herbal supplements (St. John’s Wart), seizures or a clinical diagnosis of Mania. Anyone with medically diagnosed eye disease should check with their ophthalmologist first before using light therapy. Consult your physician if you use photosensitive drugs, are pregnant, are diagnosed with eye disease or have any concerns about using phototherapy.
Benefits include, but are not limited to, increased energy, a deep sense of well-being, profound stress reduction, improved mood and mental clarity, and better sleep. Learn more at the BENEFITS page.
Everyone is different. Many people experience a noticeable and even significant increase in energy and relaxation after the first session. Often an immediate difference can be seen in the appearance of facial skin or in sleep patterns. Others need several sessions or even continued use for 3-4 weeks to notice a difference in how they feel and look.

Each DreamSpa program has its own proprietary programming sequence. For maximum effect, all programs are 30 minutes in duration and will automatically turn off at the end of each session.
During the first three programs: RENEW, BLUE CALM and BODY RELIEF, the canopy will cover the face. Use of eyeshields is recommended, however eyes should remain closed during the entire session. After hitting the start button there is a 15 second delay before the lights start flickering, indicating the session has begun. The effects will be different in each of the three programs that have BrainWave Entrancement™. Many people really enjoy this additional effect. This effect can be turned off by pressing the TRANCE button.
During the first session, the lights may seem overly bright; this is not harmful or hurtful to the eyes. This experience will subside as the session progresses and you begin to deeply relax. The lights will seem to create geometric patterns or mandalas; this may change as the session progresses and the effects will be different in each of the three programs that have BrainWave Entrancement™. Many people really enjoy this additional effect. This effect can be turned off by pressing the TRANCE button.
You may see many different colors during your session. This is because the cones and rods in everyone’s eyes are unique. Occasionally some people may see a green tint in their vision right after a session. This is because green is a complementary color to your eyes’ red receptors. This is natural, non-harmful and will fade away very soon after a session. For some people it may take two or three sessions to realize the full effects and benefits. Especially in the first session, because the mind is curious, thinking too much and wondering what to expect. Once the mind relaxes and feels safe, each session becomes successively more enjoyable.
After multiple sessions you may feel and be at an energy level you may not have experienced so far in this life. This is because during the first nine months of your life you could only receive the energy your mother’s body could give you. The energy that you are born with is called your body organ reserve or body energy reserve. The body energy reserve tends to be depleted by the time you turn 30 to 40 yrs old. The DreamSpa™ helps you to replenish your energy and “charge your battery”.
Each DreamSpa™ program is timed to turn off automatically after 30 minutes. This is the length of time needed for the body to receive the biologically optimal level of photons. 30 minutes also coincides with our proprietary Brainwave Entrancement™ program.
Yes, the DreamSpa™ can be used for less than 30 minutes for a quick pick me up to recharge and relax when time constraints don’t allow for a full 30 minute session. For optimal benefit use the full 30 minutes whenever possible. This will allow you to take full advantage of our propriety programming.
Unlike other personal use phototherapy devices which require the user to either hold or sit in front of the product, the DreamSpa™ Phototherapy System was designed for complete relaxation and ease of use. The DreamSpa’s unique 2 position canopy allows it to be used in a reclined position (with the exception of the HANDS & NAILS program). This allows the user to fully rest and profoundly relax during each session.
No, the LEDs are not hot. Unlike other light bulbs which waste about 90% of their energy as heat and not as photons, LEDs are just the opposite; they generate no heat. You may experience some warmth during sessions, that would be either your own body heat or the internally generated effect of increased cellular metabolism.
The DreamSpa™ was created for personal use, as a result of extensive phototherapy research findings that unequivocally demonstrate that daily use is optimal. The DreamSpa™ can be used more than once a day. We recommend waiting 2-3 hours between the three programs that offer system benefits: RENEW, BLUE CALM and BODY RELIEF as these sessions continue to unfold in the body on a cellular and molecular level for an additional 2-3 hours after the program ends. However, there are no harmful effects from having sessions back to back. Additionally, the HAIR and SCALP as well as the HANDS and NAILS programs can be used effectively either right before or right after any other DreamSpa™ program.
Yes, very easy and self explanatory to use. No training or expertise needed. Just turn on the DreamSpa™, choose the desired program and press start.
The DreamSpa™ is light weight (6 lbs ) and compact (12” x 12” x 12’) which makes it easy to carry and travel with. Light Health Research offers a custom Carrying Case for local transport and DreamSpa™ Luggage designed specifically for airline travel according to air travel insurance guidelines.
Before sessions if possible remove makeup and hydrate with electrolyte rich water, like mineral water or coconut water to better facilitate energy retention. Hydration acts as a “battery fluid” in the body, spreading and holding the light energy longer. Drinking water before and after a light session also helps with any mild detox that may be experienced.
Yes, the DreamSpa™ can be used for focused pain relief on specific areas of the body. Carefully place knees, elbows, feet or ankles that may be experiencing pain under the DreamSpa™ canopy. Use RENEW with TRANCE off for localized pain reduction.
There is no downtime or recovery time after DreamSpa™ sessions as may be the case with laser treatments that often wound to heal. When the session is finished, you may choose to stay relaxed for several minutes and enjoy the aftereffect. Occasionally, a mild detox effect (manifested as tiredness instead of energy) may be experienced after an initial DreamSpa™ session. Cells naturally release toxins as they receive the rejuvenating qualities of the light. Rest, hydrate and continue to use DreamSpa™ sessions to alleviate this effect.
The DreamSpa™ is an all-in-one professional grade phototherapy unit. The DreamSpa™ offers seven types of phototherapy that would normally cost the consumer over $14,000 if they were to purchase each type separately. Commercial units that offer single use programs, i.e. photo facials, hair renewal, anti-aging for hands can cost over $20,000 and $60,000. The DreamSpa™ is comparable in performance and quality to these very expensive commercial devices.
The DreamSpa™ is professional grade phototherapy unit priced for home use. The DreamSpa™ offers seven types of phototherapy that would normally cost the consumer over $14,000 if they were to purchase each type separately.

Brainwave Entrancement™ is available with RENEW, BLUE CALM and BODY RELIEF programs. It is not available and is not useful with the HAIR and SCALP or the HANDS & NAILS program.
Yes, the Brainwave Entrancement™ feature can be turned off at the user’s discretion by simply pressing the TRANCE button on the control panel.
Yes, the Alpha portion of our Brainwave Entrancement™ is the brainwave state that experienced meditators strive for and can be very conducive for retraining the brain for meditation. However, the later part of the session which entrains the brain to 8hz and 5hz Theta, typically results in the user drifting off into a deeply restorative twilight state or sleep. 5hz is the Miracle Zone where brain repair takes place.
Yes, feel free to enhance your session by using headphones to listen to your favorite music, subliminal recordings, or your own brainwave entrainment audios. Listen to music with or without the DreamSpa™ Brainwave Entrancement™. When using external audio brainwave programs, hypnosis or subliminal recordings you should disable the TRANCE feature so that any brainwave entrainment provided by the audio recording does not conflict with the Brainwave Entrancement™.
We generally recommend that users remove makeup before sessions. However, people have used the DreamSpa™ with makeup and still report receiving the same benefits. Gentle, natural skin creams are fine. Sun block is absolutely not required and not recommended.
Yes, it is perfectly fine to wear jewelry during sessions.
The DreamSpa™ is intended to be used with eyes closed and with the DreamSpa eyeshields. Individuals with medically diagnosed eye disease should check with their ophthalmologist before using any light therapy.
Use of eyeshields is entirely optional, however eyes should remain closed during the entire session. Each DreamSpa™ comes with 2 pairs of eyeshields that are designed to block 99% of each DreamSpa™ wavelength.
Yes, contact lenses are fine to wear during sessions. However, we do recommend taking off your eyeglasses.
The DreamSpa™ was designed with sturdy bacteria proof encasing so that the unit can be easily kept hygienic for shared use. We appreciate our customers sharing this technology with others and offer a $100 Visa Gift Card “Thank You” to any DreamSpa™ customer that refers a new customer to Light Health Research.
Absolutely. Pets respond very well to phototherapy and receive similar benefits as humans. Modern phototherapy actually started out in Europe about 50 years ago with veterinarians. Only later was the connection made that light therapy may be beneficial for humans as well.
The DreamSpa™ comes with a two year full manufacturer’s warranty. An additional one year warranty is available for $119.00. The purchase of the extended warranty extends your coverage from two years to three years against defects in workmanship and materials under normal use. This extended warranty is available for purchase only at the time of initial purchase of the DreamSpa™.
Photons are fundamental particles that transmit light. Photons move at the speed of light; they have wavelengths and frequencies, but are without mass. Einstein received the Noble Prize and changed the course of physics with his discovery of how photons interact with matter (the photoelectric effect). In particle physics, photons are responsible for electromagnetic force. One common way that we experience electromagnetism in our daily lives is light, which is caused by electromagnetism.
At Light Health Research, customer satisfaction is our number one priority. Each DreamSpa™ comes with a 60 Day No Questions Asked Money Back Guarantee.
The DreamSpa™ is a compact 12” x 12” x12” and weighs only 6 lbs.
The DreamSpa™ is powered by a safe 12 Volt DC adapter, designed for worldwide use. The AC to DC adapter converts unhealthy AC electricity to clean 12 Volt DC electricity. 12 Volt DC is very safe with a clean electromagnetic field for humans and pets. The adapter automatically converts to the right current in different countries. You simply need to obtain the appropriate plug for the specific country in which you will be using the DreamSpa™.
The DreamSpa™ uses state of the art LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). LEDS are a highly efficient sources of light, do not generate heat, have a longer service life, and require far less electricity than lasers. They are non-invasive and safe for home use. Lasers generate high levels of heat, can destroy or vaporize tissues, are expensive and produce only one wavelength. Laser as well as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments are restricted to licensed professional technicians. LEDs are preferable to lasers because they can be adapted to generate multiple wavelengths and are more efficient for treating tissues.
The effect of lasers is more localized than LEDs. Lasers are like one note on a violin; the DreamSpa™ LED system is like having the whole orchestra.
LEDs are a highly efficient light source; the expected LED life would be ten to fifteen years. The beauty of using LEDs, is that most of the energy is expended in the light wave itself, not in the generation of heat like a normal light bulbs. Normal light bulbs waste about 90% of their energy as heat and not as photons. LEDs are just the opposite.
The DreamSpa™ uses three of the most studied frequencies: 470nm Ultra Blue, 670nm Deep Red and 870nm NIF (Near Infrared).
The Near Infrared wavelength is the most researched in phototherapy history. NIF is the deepest penetrating and is used for muscle relaxation and deep healing.
Deep Red is very energizing, regenerative, and restorative to the human body.
Ultra Blue is very calming. The Ultra Blue wavelength is used all over the world to enhance mood, alleviate jet lag and SAD. It is also used to help people retrain their bodies to sleep normally again.
EMFs (electromagnetic fields) are often misunderstood. There are negative EMF fields and just as many positive EMF fields. Every atom has an EMF field. The EMF field of the DreamSpa™ is a direct current field “DC” which is perfectly clean and safe.
The only frequencies in this DC field are the wavelengths of light that we put in them. The wavelengths we use are the three of most tested wavelengths in research history and considered highly beneficial. The DreamSpa™ is designed to be an entirely safe system and to have only 100% positive healthy effects.
