JANET LLOYD-JONES has been a Registered Acupuncturist with the British Acupuncture Council since 1989, providing symptomatic and constitutional support for her clients. Since 1994 she has used Low Level Laser Therapy (or Cold Laser) alongside her traditional treatments – LLLT is a form of photobiomodulation that not only enhances and strengthens tissue repair and relieves pain, but also allows her to apply all the same traditional acupuncture principles … without the use of needles ! Throughout the past 20 years Janet has found the two modalities, when used independently, are extremely effective, but when applied in combination can produce remarkable results
In addition Janet is a Thermographer and Medical Thermologist. Thermography utilises the ability to ‘see’ the heat radiated from a body and to use the images produced not only to help identify and define the extent of an injury and monitor the healing progress itself, but also as a tool to help with postural and gait analysis.
As well as running the Lightworks Clinic, Janet also travels around the UK providing both human and veterinary treatment, training and consultation, has written papers and regularly speaks nationally/internationally to help establish and expand use of low level laser therapy … for both human and animal clients alike.
Whilst laser therapy has many applications, Janet specialises in sports and tissue related injuries – particularly in immediate post-trauma situations, where inflammation can be resolved, tissue elasticity preserved and scarring reduced.
“Whilst none of us relish the idea of injury, it’s reassuring to know that early application of Low Level Laser Therapy can speed recovery and help prevent later complications.” Janet Lloyd-Jones
