Proven therapy that prompts the body to heal.
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 attempts to move normally for their stage of recovery while the beam is on.
The adjunctive therapy accelerates the healing process.
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.
Sports recovery may be accelerated by bringing the body's attention to the injured spot(s) via the Varichrome® Pro. Wavelengths in the red spectrum are the most studied.
However, the precise underlying impaired functions are likely not known. Impairments such inflammation, muscle knots, and strains may be present in different combinations. The Varichrome® Pro let's the practitioner efficiently test different wavelengths to find one's that patient needed.
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.
Muscle knots form along a single muscle to limit movement or cause pain. The muscle loses its ability to contract smoothly along its length. Overactive spots get tight to become “knots” that resist relaxation by pressure, kneading, acupuncture. Muscle cramps or muscle spasms may involve the entire muscle by activating it at the wrong time. The Varichrome® therapy can help the muscles re-coordinate their ordinary contractions along its length. Re-coordinating is different from prompting only relaxation such as with heat.
The long-term imbalance of muscles can cause problems such as headaches, pain, and the curvature of the spine. The lumps on the back can reach golf-ball size. Re-coordination via Varichrome® therapy has helped keep these problems away for months. Clinical experience shows that occasional therapy can help keep the pain away for years.
Tight hamstring muscles run down the back of the leg. The hamstrings support activities such as running, jumping, walking, and squatting. Tight hamstrings are often caused by vigorous exercise. However, tight hamstring can also be triggered by low activity, particularly in senior citizens, or have no cause.
The limitations to movement show that the various muscle lack their ordinary coordination. Relaxing a few muscles, such as with heat or special exercises, can help relieve pain but doesn’t prompt the re-coordination of muscles needed to perform your desired activities. The Varichrome® therapy can accelerate the patient’s “relearning” how to move again.
Trigger Finger, is a condition that affects the hand and fingers. It is characterized by the thickening and tightening of the tissue beneath the skin in the palm and fingers, leading to the formation of nodules and cords. The Varichrome Pro doesn't treat the condition but may relieve some inflammation and prompt a recoordination of the muscles involved if tried early enough.
As the condition progresses, these nodules and cords can cause the affected fingers to bend or contract inward towards the palm, making it difficult to fully extend or straighten them. The pinky and ring fingers are most commonly affected, but other fingers can also be involved.
Pat's quick improvements show that the impairments can be reduced as least while the damage is mild.
The responses to the variable-wavelength therapy suggest that the abnormal functioning of the fingers may result from a loss of coordination of the powering muscles. The rapidity of the release of the contracture fits the PhotoMed team's speculative model of "contextual sensorimotor adaptation". The adaptation is an event when the affected maps switch to an earlier map. For example, when a multiple language speaker responds to a change in the context of the other person. (1)
Pat and other extended family members had experienced Dupuytren's contracture. She first achieved satisfactory benefits from the variable-wavelength therapy about 5 to 4 years prior.
This video recaps her earlier visits and shows the therapy for her current episode started about 2 months before.
The video shows the questions and answers that guided the therapy. The purpose of the video is for training new users. Pat has given her permission for public viewing of this presentation.

Think coordination rather than relaxation
Many therapies aim to prompt relaxation. That's great for releasing muscles.
The Varichrome® Therapy aims to prompt the return of coordinated movements. 2 visits are generally enough to learn if the specific impairment 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 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.
