Practical Application of the Photon Stimulator
by Tony Cocilovo, M.A. Lightforms Research Llc., ,

Always seek the help of licensed health care providers and physicians. This is just common sense. The use of light may be helpful in emergencies, but only to assist after all other medical attention has been accomplished. Light is best for care after the emergency for pain relief, wound healing etc. The use of light is not a first line treatment or recommended for life-threatening conditions. It is to be used to help the body – for every condition – after all else has been accomplished to treat the condition. Light does not treat conditions or diseases. It does help the body refortify all internal organ and neurological systems by two very important means. The Autonomic Nervous System, and the Meridian System. It restores the self-regulatory systems via the Autonomic Nervous System, which have gotten out of regulation. Quite simple! This is a tool that anyone can use. It uses safe, full spectrum light from a xenon or LED light source. It is a patented device that allows pulsed light to travel through 6 feet of optic fiber. The Illuminated optic fiber tip is then placed at acupoints – or above the skin. Light is easy to use and apply to the body. Light operates in a less complicated fashion than needles. Meridians are based on light receptivity. This Health Normalization System has been used since 1998 when it was patented, with surprising effectiveness – for a myriad of conditions. It is used throughout the world by individuals, acupuncturists, sports teams, pain clinics, children’s hospitals, post-surgical clinics, and aestheticians. Light is taken into the body’s systems by a process of “photon sucking and pumping”. Once it is in the body, the body changes the wavelength and intensity to suit its own needs. There is no way we could dictate the complex interactions of light in the body. What is important is that it is safe and without side effects. The micro application of light to the body with optic fiber has completely different effects than that of large bulbs or the sun. Our bodies had to adapt to a very violent, bright and noisy world. We developed sensitivities to micro amounts of light stimuli in order to have a functional internal communication system. The body’s health and ability to respond to breaks, bruises, cuts, bacteria, etc is dependent on a strong internal communication system. Chemical interactions are very slow, and even neural interactions are much slower than light. Researchers are just now beginning to understand the multiple complex functions of light in the body.
Light Basics: Light hits the body on the skin and the eyes. Eyes: Light enters the body via the eyes and takes a variety of pathways. It can affect one psychologically via the optic nerve and cognitive processes, which can affect mood and mental functioning. It can affect the hypothalamus and hormonal regulation. It can also affect the Autonomic Nervous System. Some areas on the iris have embryological parasympathetic and sympathetic tissue which can be stimulated by light, causing Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) reactions. My technique of Iris Phototherapy is discussed in an article on my website. Effectiveness can be demonstrated by the use of the Vascular Autonomic Signal (VAS – Nogier 1978) which is also called the Sympathetic Vagal Reflex (VR—White, 1929).

Skin: If too much sunlight hits the skin the body produces melanin pigment to act as a barrier to the light. Photon pumping and sucking (Popp) inside the body can also limit light absorption and usage on a cellular level if the light is too bright. (effectiveness is never about intensity, but pattern recognition) Different types of light affect the surface of the skin in different ways. Ultraviolet light can eliminate a variety of bacteria, fungus, etc.. Infrared light makes skin warm and can initiate a variety of enzymatic reactions in the skin. Light can penetrate a few centimeters or more through the surface, depending on the melanin content. Russian Research in the late 1970”s showed that in addition to light affecting the surface of the skin, it actually entered the body. (Meridians Conduct Light, 1991) I had this article translated from the original German where it appeared in Raum and Zeit magazine. It is now referenced by many on the internet. After continued research the Russians found that the places where the light entered (and sometimes left) happened to be the same as traditional Chinese meridian acupoints. Meridians actually have qualities similar to optic fiber. Since then, meridians have been well researched and are accepted as physiological realities with effects no longer limited to the use of pressure, heat and needles.

Meridians and their relationship to light: A long, long time ago….the sun shines on a planet. If the planet was still—not turning, one side would be very hot and the other side would be very cold. However, since the planet spins on its axis, light hits it during half of its spin cycle and it then cools for the second half. This causes an in and out movement of photons and a resultant electron movement. Light goes in during the day and out to the sky at night. Wherever there is this photon / electron movement there is life. In an effort to optimize light retention for nighttime use, organisms developed storage systems (or holding tanks if you will). The holding tank walls became their outer surface, bark etc.. Stationary lichen and plants opened to receive daylight and turn it into matter for growth with the use of earth surface elements, and they closed at night to keep the heat and light inside. Nature, being highly economical, developed complex systems based on the use of light which allowed for plants to turn toward the light, have a means to self-repair , and also have a means to recycle the same photons for a variety of tasks. These flows and pathways of light—in and out, once encapsulated, became the primitive meridians which made it possible for internal organ systems to evolve.
3 You probably get where I am going with this. Light is the most natural tool for therapeutic use on the body. Possibly for the first time in the last few thousand years, there is a tool available to allow us to apply light directly to a meridian point, when during prior times, there was only pressure, heat and needles.

The Autonomic Nervous System: As organisms evolved, survival depended on an ability to move (survival—not of the fittest but of the most mobile). When life was threatened by such things as volcanoes, meteors, turbulent weather etc., nothing was as important as getting the heck outa’ there. Thus, a system evolved which put all else on hold. This is what we call the Autonomic Nervous System. Movement needed to take place fast— no time to think– so it is a reaction that happens without our knowing. It is auto—nomic / automatic. Survival was such a priority that it was even ok if parts of the organism were lost (tree limbs, lizard tails, etc.) Such a priority required almost complete shutdown of internal functions (and meridian flows) so all possible energy could be focused on moving, or fighting. Moving and fighting requires energy to be sent to the outer shell which is skin, muscle and blood. This energy causes the muscles to tighten (blood vessels are also muscles) and blood to increase (extra from the spleen) to help supply nutrients and oxygen. Almost all internal energies are blocked—in our case—from travelling down the vagus nerve in the control center of the brain to the center / core, or our enteric brain in the center of our being at our gut. It is necessary for energy to be flowing throughout the whole system for the meridian system to be able to operate and to be treated. Simply put, one needs to be in parasympathetic (energy flowing down the vagus nerve in full open position with no sympathetic blockages) to access the meridian system completely. Once again, light comes to the rescue. Light has been demonstrated to be able to restore energy to the vagus nerve and move one into the parasympathetic. It is easy and demonstrable using the VAS system. Light enables the RE-regulation of our internal systems.

Some ANS misconceptions: Western medicine and Oriental medicine speak about the Parasympathetic and Sympathetic as being in balance. In relation to that, I would say that an ambulance is in balance—when the engine is running but it is not moving. Yes, the push and pull forces of the PNS and ANS are balanced when the organism is at rest. However, in that state there is energy running down the vagus nerve to the internal organs in full open position. The unbalanced part comes in when the energy going down the vagus nerve comes to a stop, and the sympathetic reactions start which include blood sugar imbalances, heart pumping, increased blood pressure, etc. At that point one cannot possibly conclude that there is a state of balance. The Sympathetic is “Emergency Use Only”. Do you know what happens when the energy to the core is deprived for too long? You should, because this is the cause of most chronic illnesses in the modern world—especially immune deficiency disorders. Western medicine is set up to be disease specific. Studies need to prove that one thing can be treated repeatedly and consistently. However weaknesses due to being in Sympathetic for too long does not produce the same diseases. Quite often they show up in the organs of least resistance – possibly those with genetic weaknesses. The ANS and meridian systems are missed in the process of close
4 examination. To grasp the importance of this, one needs to step back. Light can work using a variety of devices and protocols because light taken in by the body is changed and adapted to the needs of the body by the body (not the practitioner). It is taken and used by the ANS and the meridian system, and used by cells to cause enzymatic actions, morphing of cells for multiple functions, and movement of cells to different locations, etcetera.

To implement what we have learned thus far:

First: Light is effective on the ANS to bring one back into Parasympathetic, but more importantly to enable the body to self-regulate. This is an important part of any treatment; helping the body self-regulate by the use of light. This is accomplished at the navel, pupillary border (to be discussed in a later article) and at some ear points.

Second: Use the master meridian points (Auriculo points are easy and effective) to restore balance and self regulation. This has been repeatedly demonstrated by use of a heart rate variability monitor.

Third: Conduct meridian treatments the way you normally would, but with the consideration of different treatment principles because light operates in a different way than needles.

Fourth: The surface of the skin may be treated including: rashes, infections, post- surgical conditions, wounds, facial rejuvenation and all that implies, bed sores, insect bites and of course much more. Light is an adjunct to your other treatments. It can be used as a stand alone treatment, but I would suggest using everything at your disposal for your benefit.

Light is a subtle treatment, and is very forgiving since the body is constantly balancing itself. However, always start with treating the master points in the ear to insure the body is in parasympathetic. Why not just shine light on the body with a flashlight? Light at a distance acts differently on the body than light directly placed on a meridian. Most light has the potential for helping. One problem is the time it takes to actually enter the body and interact with organ systems – if at all. Dinshah (re: website) recommended that light colored by specific gels be shone (tonations) onto specific parts of the body for 1/2 hour or more according to his research. The Russian research demonstrated that tonating affects the skin but actually very little enters the body, and yet Dinshah and the medical practitioners who used his equipment had good results. Taking advantage of the meridian system is key to short treatment times and better results. Light applied to meridian points reinforces the complete meridian pathway and sends light energy to the corresponding organ system. Realistically, there is no way we can look at or interfere with the delicate internal mechanisms of the interaction of light on cells and systems in our body. By applying light to meridian points, the body’s own intelligence directs the action and outcome of the light’s interactions as it travels within the body.

5 Practical aspects of using the Photon Stimulator:

These are the variables:

The cone tip: (pushes into the foam sleeve) Keep the cone tip on the end of the cable for use on acupoints. Remove the cone for skin treatments since the light will then shine on a larger area.

Pulse Rate: The number of pulses of light per second can be adjusted by turning the knob at the back of the unit. (with the LED unit) when the knob is turned all the way to the right, it will pulse at 2 pulses per second. When the knob is turned to the first stopping point as it is turned all the way to the left, it will be pulsing at approximately 43 pulses per second. If it is turned past the “click” to the left, the light will be continuously on with no pulsing. There is a digital display to the right of the knob which will show the current pulse rate (pps = pulses per second). There is a two second delay between the time the knob is set and the time it shows up on the digital readout. (with the Xenon units) turning the knob clockwise increases the pulse rate and there is no digital readout. Picking a pulse rate: For meridians—start with 7– 10 pps. There is more research validating positive responses from this pulse range than any other. This is most likely related to the Schumann Resonance which averages around 7.8. It is important to note that these pulse rates are in no way related to the high frequencies of Rife or other devices that use electromagnetic frequencies. They are also not related to Nogier’s micro frequencies. A note about entrainment: only some people entrain easily (matching of body pulses to external stimuli). However it may be worth trying out pulse rates that match the brain waves. Delta( deep sleep) below 4 pps, Theta 4-8 (drowsy / dreaming), Alpha 8–2 (relaxed), Beta 12-25 (active). For skin: Adjust the pulse rate according to the amount of melanin pigment in the skin. The darker the skin, the higher the pulse rate. For medium toned skin set it around 20 pps. Duration -Length of time to hold the light at the point: For skin: It may be used almost as long as you can stand to hold it, but effectiveness may peak from 10—20 minutes. It can be applied up to three times a day. For Meridians: Hold the tip at the point (no pressure is necessary) for at least 30 seconds, however it may be more beneficial to hold it on some points longer—up to 3 minutes. If the tip is used directly on the skin the cone may be easily cleaned with alcohol . Color: Colors: The Photon Stimulator comes with a set of 12 Dinshah colors. There is also an optional set of 12 different colors, or you can make your own from a 300 color swatch booklet. There is lots of information about these colors at These color gels are used with broad-spectrum white light from a very bright LED or Xenon bulb. Each color gel comes in a 35mm slide casing. They are used easily by placing them in a slot at the top of the unit. I use these specific colors because Dinshah had researched them quite thoroughly – Also because the body is familiar with them. They are a spectrographic match of elements that our bodies use such as oxygen, hydrogen, magnesium etc.
6 Dinshah”s color recommendations are listed earlier in this manual . However there are other ways of choosing colors. One is by muscle testing. There are a variety of ways to accomplish muscle testing – but that is beyond the scope of this article. Google “muscle testing techniques”. You can also simply use your intuition – if you trust it. There is also the 5 element theory of color which you might look into. My recommended approach to color choice is based on research. It is also very simple and effective. It focuses on the colors in the world you see outside. This is hardly a coincidence, we are adaptive products of our environment. The most dominant colors from the sea and sky are blue – violet. Surface of the earth – a variety of greens and browns. Most reds are mixed with blues such as at sunrise and sunset. These produce shades of orange and pink to violet and purple. Minimal and rare colors are pure reds and yellows from flowers and minerals. This is a good way to consider color for applications.

Blue = Parasympathetic – or body normalization if we are in Sympathetic (stress) 80% of Americans tested in metropolitan areas are continuously in Sympathetic. Turquoise is a great blend of blue and green, which I use mostly for the beginning of a treatment of ear master points prior to treating any condition specifically. Green = A strengthener and revitalizer Reds and Yellows move one into Sympathetic. These may be required during certain emergencies, but I hardly ever use them. When you are in an accident you don’t feel pain right away because you are in sympathetic. Reds may relieve pain but do not necessarily decrease healing time. Red should be mixed with blue just as in the evening and morning sky. Indigo, Violet, Purple, Scarlet, and Magenta, all have increasing amounts of red mixed with blue. If you need to stimulate/ irritate something to wake it up then use red—but mixed with blue. The rest is experimental. If you follow the above guidelines for choosing colors, you will not have any . Actually you won’t have any problems anyway. Trust your inner guidance. Trust yourself or your will end up not experimenting and not using this valuable tool. Just do it. Stimulation and sedation—do not correspond with the use of red and blue. This is important. You must think in terms of the color’s effect on the ANS. Blue—violet can easily induce an energized state by moving one into parasympathetic where internal functions produce a state of well-being—a clear energy different than that which coffee induces. I have demonstrated the Photon Stimulator to thousands. When just points Zero and Shenmen are treated with turquoise, an invisible veil seems as though it is lifted. Clarity of perception appears, and digestive peristalsis resumes. Happiness is only achieved when our center is energized. Longevity is associated with how long one stays in parasympathetic (vagus nerve enervated) throughout life. Only when the vagus nerve is enervated is the body fully capable of healing itself, and eliminating toxins. Can I harm or over treat? No, but be aware of any clients that are sensitive to
7 pulsing lights—make sure that while handling the tip, that you do not pass it through their field of vision. Chakras: some people have had fantastic results with clients while treating chakras . This is one of those areas that I have not found enough solid research about, but I encourage exploration. There is an optional crystal tip for those who like using crystals. Crystals act as capacitors—they build up a charge and it is released with intention. The us ones intention to increase the effectiveness a treatment by the of the light is well grounded. Levels of effectiveness are related to:  The receptivity of the client (feeling healing light come in)  Trust in the practitioner The ability of the practitioner to hold the client in a perfect or healed state. And then empty themselves of all thought as the treatment progresses.

One Way to do a Treatment: Look up what you wish to treat in the Health Disorder Index of the Auriculotherapy Manual. (you may wish to copy that section of the book and get it spiral bound for ease of use) On the left pages, the condition is listed along with a list of Principle Points (PP) and Secondary Points (SP) All you need to treat are the Principal Points. Each one is shown at the illustrations of ears on pages to the right. Locate the points. We recommend that you start every treatment by applying turquoise or blue to the two master points in each ear for at least 30 seconds. These are points Zero and Shenmen These points are also listed in most “Principle Points” in the Auriculotherapy index, but do them first and disregard them when you come to them in the list of Principle Points. Unlike needles you can move the light tip. This opens up the meridian system and starts moving one into Parasympathetic. Quite often this is all that is needed to get results overnight.

Next, pick colors according to the principles I mentioned earlier, and treat all the principle points in both ears for a minute or so each. Some people feel a variety of sensations immediately – others nothing. Symptom relief is usually felt within an hour and more relief is felt overnight. It is that simple!
