History of light therapy can be dated back in 1903, when Niels Ryberg Finsen, developed a device that produced synthesized light and was awarded Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery. In 1938, a hospital in Massachusetts performed effective testing on patients with coloured lights, revealing that red light had a stimulating effect whereas blue had a soothing effect. Later, Vanessa Cisneros at the Healing Elephant Clinic in 2016, studied light and sound therapy that can transform the mind and deeply heal the body. Light therapy is now considered as the standard of care for the treatment of various diseases by most of the healthcare professionals. Focus of business players on development of advanced technologies have led to introduction of various light therapy devices over the recent years. Increasing adoption of non-invasive interventions as well as potential of light therapy to treat skin cancer and other skin diseases will eventually enhance light therapy business growth during the forthcoming years.
