Frequently Asked Questions
Photonic therapy is an advanced form of acupuncture using light, instead of needles, to stimulate recognised acupuncture points.
As a complementary medicine, Photonic Therapy offers a safe, painless and effective method of home health, which provides temporary relief from pain and promotes healing in people and animals.
Photonic therapy involves the application of light to particular areas of the skin that has increased electrical conductivity. The light stimulates these areas to produce particular physiological results.
To appreciate the impact of the therapy, a basic understanding of skin, acupuncture and light is required.
Based on the research of Dr Brian McLaren, Photonic Therapy is able to explain in a rigorously scientific manner how photonic therapy works. Refer to ‘Photonic Therapy – A Simple Explanation’ and other professional documents available in the Advanced Photonic Therapy website library.
Yes. Photonic Therapy is non-invasive so the skin is not broken, as occurs with the use of an acupuncture needle in order to stimulate the specific areas of the skin.
A comprehensive list of the range of conditions that can be assisted by Photonic Therapy is available in the Photonic Therapy website library. Refer to ‘‘Conditions for Horses’, ‘Conditions for Dogs’, ‘Conditions for Birds’, ‘Conditions for Cattle’ and ‘Conditions for Alpaca’.
Photonic Therapy should always be used post-diagnostically.
It is supposed to be used on animals.
But if a human would use it under supervision of their primary heath care taker, then there is a warning to people with Pancreatitis, or insulin dependent Type l diabetes. Photonic Therapy will improve the health of such a person by causing the pancreas to produce insulin. And if a person is taking medication to lower their blood-sugar level, they need to consider lowering their medication dose rate and/or eat more sweets or they could possibly suffer hypoglycaemia (an attack due to low blood sugar).
The methodologies used by Photonic Therapy are based on the research of Dr Brian McLaren. Dr McLaren, a qualified human acupuncturist and Australia’s most highly qualified veterinary acupuncturist, professionally published his research in 1996. Since then, he has been diagnosing and treating people and their animals around the world. Refer to the Photonic Therapy webpage ‘About Us’ to learn more about Dr McLaren, and to the web library to read his work.
Photonic Therapy allows a painless, non-invasive therapy to stimulate the body’s ability to heal. A modern, scientific application of acupuncture methods, the therapy works by stimulating the body’s defence mechanisms, and releasing the body’s own pain killers and anti-inflammatories, to encourage the maximum rate of healing. Virtually all physiological conditions of the body may be addressed. Photonic Therapy used before and after an operation reduces the time of wound healing, and decreases post-operative infection.
Since the light stimulates physiological (that is hormonal) results within the body, this may cause different effects in different animals. The most common effect in some is a mild relaxed feeling that passes within half an hour (similar to relaxing in a hot bath). This sensation has no effect on driving vehicles or operating machinery.
Each Info Pack, for Horse, Dog, Bird, Cattle or Alpaca clearly explains the location of each acupuncture point associated with addressing the particular condition, in both words and diagrams.

The purchase of the new Advanced Photonic Torch includes a free online consultation with a suitably qualified Photonic Therapy representative, vet, acupuncturist.
Photonic Therapy stimulates the acupuncture points on both sides of the body per point for five seconds on a horse or cow , 3 on a Alpaca, 2 on a dog.
Use the torch two or three times per week for at least two to three weeks for a particular condition.
For overall health maintenance, apply every two weeks. In acute conditions, such as a freshly sprained ankle, three or four daily sessions could be used without harm.
In general, if the condition is acute (less than two weeks old) then more than one session per day can assist. Generally if the condition is chronic (more than six weeks old) then addressing the condition tree times a week for a number of weeks is more beneficial i.e. it is the repetition of sessions over a long period rather than many therapy sessions in a short time period that is important.
No, apply the tip of the torch directly against the skin (or fur of the animal) without pressing into the skin. Applying pressure will not improve the effect of the light on the acupuncture point or increase the stimulation of the point.
In acupuncture when using a needle, precision is important. However, acupuncture points are wide areas of skin (as wide as 10-25 millimetres). The light from the Photonic Therapy torches covers a wide area. Observe this by shining the torch on your hand when in a dark room. Applying the torch to the location of the point described in the instructions will achieve the desired benefit without the need for ‘needle-point’ accuracy. Stimulating an incorrect point will not cause harm, but simply register a nil effect.
The torch has been designed to be cleaned in normal disinfectant solutions, hot, soapy water or with chemical wipes after each therapy session if required.

Both torches can be used to torch locally and acupuncturepoints and in every type of situation.
The Pocket Torch is smaller and easier to take with you where ever you go. Because of its size the battery is also very small and will therefor have to be recharged more often.
The Pocket Torch is advised as a First Aid Torch and when it will not be used daily.
It is also the best option if you would like to be torching with 2 torches at a time.
The Pro Torch is advised for any vets, therapist and anybody who would use it daily on several animals.
With its power of 500mW, it is also the Torch that will reach as deep as the aorta on the Horses back.
