205b PLT Therapeutics – Telephonic Course


Course Description

The PLT Therapeutics Course continues to explore the use of polychromatic light therapy (PLT) as a novel, noninvasive and highly effective stress management tool. This five-module course integrates stress management principles of allostatic load in a deeper understanding of body’s healing processes and the therapeutic use of polychromatic light therapy. From the skin to muscle performance to circulation and pain reduction, students learn the evidence-based underpinnings of this novel approach to stress management, health rebalancing, athletic performance, and health optimization. Additionally, the course is supplemented with support materials, videos, and relevant research articles.

The TELEPHONIC Course is offered in five-modules taught via Zoom live/interactive meeting format. The instructor presents one module per meeting which typically lasts between 60 - 90 minutes depending on student participation. This is a highly interactive teaching format allowing students the opportunity to ask questions as the course progresses. Preparation for each module is encouraged and supported by the Course Workbook questions and reference materials. Students will be sent a ZOOM meeting invitation to their SMCPLT account email. The meeting invitation provides calendar reminders along with simple instructions to connect. Downloading the ZOOM meeting app to your computer is encouraged, however, not required as telephone access codes are also provided as an alternative connection method. CEUs will be granted upon completion of the course evaluation.
