Senan Biotech gives people a safe, drug-free solution to manage their self-care naturally. The range of products uses phototherapy by stimulating points on the body to provide pain relief, to lengthen sleep duration, to manage work-related burnout symptoms and to assist people with their supportive care. The phototherapy patch technology was created in the USA in the late 90’s. The technology embeds light-reflecting and light-emitting materials to restore energy emitted by the body. The patch gives the patient control to manage their self-care in any environment. They can be used in conjunction with other medications following from a Health Professional consultation.

Phototherapy or light therapy is classically referred to a heliotherapy. It consists of exposure to daylight or to specific wavelengths of light using polychromatic polarised light, lasers, light-emitting diodes, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light. The light is administered for a prescribed amount of time and, in some cases, at a specific time of day.

In 1903, a Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology was awarded to Niels Finsen. This was in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with concentrated light radiation, whereby he opened a new avenue for medical science. From this time the use of light in medical science has continued. In the 1950s the effects of light on jaundice in newborns was discovered. This today is one of the most commonly known uses of phototherapy, whereby newborn jaundice is treated with phototherapy by lowering the bilirubin levels in the baby’s blood through a process called photo-oxidation. Phototherapy has been used worldwide for nearly a century to treat chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo and severe eczema.

Today science has enabled us to innovate further in this area. The Senan Biotech phototherapy patch products have been developed to use natural wavelengths of light which stimulate specific acupressure points on the body. The patches use the principles of photobiology, which is the effects of light on living organisms, when using the patches, the body becomes a receiver of energy and an energy transmitter.

Acupoint are anatomically defined areas on the skin relative to certain landmarks on the body. It is a communication area between inner and outer environments and is stimulated by any energy modification. Stimulating acupoints helps to regulate the flow of energy circulating in the meridians and improve the work of the organs. Our body comprises 360 acupoints which are connected by 20 pathways called meridians.
  • 12 main meridians, which are each related to an organ.
  • 8 extraordinary meridians, which are independent of the organs.
These meridians conduct energy, or qi between the surface of the body and its internal organs.
