Recovery of Comfort

Varichrome® Pro

Proven therapy that prompts the body to return to normal functioning.

Introducing the Varichrome® Pro

The Varichrome® Pro helps the practitioner promote their patient's return to wellness via personalized therapy. It's like having hundreds of single-output devices.

Easy to use

  • The practitioner personalizes the therapy by adjusting the settings during therapy.

  • The practitioner stimulates the body's attention systems via the Varichrome® therapy.

  • The patient may feel a lessening of coldness in their fingers or toes.

  • The therapy prompts the body to resume its ordinary functioning.

The practitioner now has access to wavelengths throughout the visible spectrum. The gentle beam of selected photons prompts the return of balance and normal healing.

The Basics

You may be familiar with the loss of sensation and the stiffness when keep your hands in cold water. Imagine what you might feel like if your hands or feet didn’t warm up and you had the constant sensation of coldness.

Some people report feelings like holding ice or being burned by a blow torch. Others report a dull but constant ache. Warming their hands in warm water or wax may provide temporary relief.

Slowly varying wavelengths from the Varichrome® Pro prompt the body to resume its ordinary functioning. That means that comfortable temperatures resume to end the need for discomfort and pain.

We call the outcome to the therapy the "return to normal" functioning or R2N.


Awareness of skin temperature is normally fades in less than a minute of exposure irrespective of the temperature.


It appears that it is the continuing awareness of cold skin temperatures that becomes annoying or painful.


This chart shows the utility of different wavelength ranges documented over the past 150 years. However, the healing systems work like customers at a buffet restaurant by taking the wavelengths they need, one or a few at a time.

The durability of the return-to-normal functioning suggests that ordinarily cycling on-off-on functions can get stuck "off" and remain waiting for the "right" signal to resume. Once resumed, responsive cycle continues

PhotoMed's team began development of the Varichrome Pro in 2000 to help people having painfully cold limbs associated with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD). The team used thermal imaging to monitor temperatures to learn which wavelengths "work", or not, to restart normal thermoregulation to restore comfort.


It now appears that the varying wavelengths draw the body's attention to the coldness, pain, or impaired functioning. Then, the body's renewed attention detects and corrects the errors.


Thermal imaging let the team "see" the responses in real-time.

Cold Hands

In PhotoMed's feasibility studies, thermal imaging recordings helped to refine the settings. "Raymond" was surprised that his hands could resume their ordinary cooling / rewarming cycles.

"Raymond" was athletic and a runner, yet his hands felt cold most of the time. He was self-conscious of the coldness and avoided touching people.

He could hardly believe that the his hands had come back online. His co-workers were happy too because he stopped turning up the room temperature in the summer.

The return-to-normal functioning response to a single application of the therapy suggests that his body was waiting for a variable rather than a static stimulation.

In PhotoMed's feasibility studies, thermal imaging let the practitioners “see”  the skin temperature to know when the therapy “worked”. The time in the cold state doesn’t seem to limit the body’s ability to return to normal functioning (R2N).

Cold Feet

Helen had worn socks at night for decades because of her cold feet. She also had neuropathy.

Helen had hoped that the therapy might improve the sensations in her feet. The therapy didn't relieve her neuropathy.

However, Helen was surprised that night when her cold feet warmed and she needed to remove the socks because her feet were too warm.

Her improved foot temperature regulation continues as of this writing, about 1 year later.

Not Everyone Responds to the Therapy

The Varichrome® Therapy aims to prompt the return of ordinary functioning and healing. 2 visits are generally enough to learn if the specific impairments may be addressed.

Like with other therapies, you have to try it to learn if the patient responds. The practitioner can now test 1000s of combinations of wavelengths and frequencies in minutes.


That's efficiency. Only with the Varichrome®  Pro.

For the hands-on practitioner, the Varichrome® Pro is an adjunctive tool to accelerate healing. The initial responses usually occur during the 1st or 2nd visit. Additional visits may be needed to maximize or refresh improvements.
