Talk About Light – Beyond The Basics

Talk About Light – Beyond The Basics


Polychromatic light technology and therapeutics (PLT) is a new industry within the health promotion and the medical health care domains. “New” comes with a language of its own. Using PLT effectively for personal care or for clinical interventions requires an understanding of the technology terminology and application concepts.

The Talk About Light™ (TAL) teleconference calls are hosted by light expert Jody Mittiga, Adult Nurse Practitioner, Naturopath, and Certified SMCPLT™ Instructor. Mittiga fields PLT questions from callers in this live interactive forum and answers in an instructive way for listeners of all levels. Each call is filled with PLT terminology, photobiomodulation principles and practical application.

The TAL call routinely features industry experts on various PLT topics ranging from PLT technology to therapeutic applications. This is an open forum where anyone can ask questions to industry experts. Listen as experts in the field answer as they ask questions like:

  • How do I best use my polychromatic light system for my family and my clients?
  • Where do I place the pads for best pain relief?
  • When do I use the Auto A?
  • What makes Solfeggio frequencies different?
  • How do I know when to use the manual settings 1 - 7?

These calls are perfect for the practitioner ready for Advanced Learning in polychromatic light technologies/therapeutics wanting to stay on the cutting edge of this industry and needing continuing education units. Following the SMCPLT instruction philosophy learn it your way, participation and completion is on the honor system and in your own time.
