WHY LIGHT THERAPY?
We are delighted to announce the arrival at John Rose Eyecare of the world’s first whole body light pod – the “NovoThor” – this is the first of its kind in the UK and currently one of only 4 in Europe.
The installation of the NovoTHor will allow our clients to benefit from Red and Near Infra Red light therapy that currently is only being enjoyed by a select few elite athletes or being used for medical treatment.
AWARD WINNING WHOLE-BODY LIGHT POD
The NovoTHOR is a whole body delivery system of PBM Therapy that has been designed to deliver optimal wavelengths, power densities and dosages based on published clinical research outcomes.
The intended uses of the NovoTHOR are to redevelop muscles, or restore motion to joints, or for use as an adjunct treatment for obesity.
Photobiomodulation is currently being used in many areas of medicine - there are many photo-therapy devices that have been FDA approved for various applications involving wound healing, pain reduction and aesthetic procedures in medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy and veterinary and oncology.
However this is mainly with the use of hand held devices that only treat a small area at a time and is time consuming and difficult to treat larger areas - the NovoTHor is able to treat the whole body at the same time.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR LIGHT POD SESSION
The treatment takes between 8 to 15 minutes. We currently allow
30 minutes per booking to allow for changing. You must be able to get upstairs
A single session costs £70, however packages
can reduce this to £50. For our existing direct debit clients
prices can go as low as £40 per session.
Please note the NovoTHor Light Pod is located upstairs on the first floor -
NB: In our experience, since 2017 since the NovoTHor Light Pod was installed, we have had some feedback from our clients stating they may feel a little fatigued immediately after a session, followed by feeling much better. However, one client stated they had a migraine that felt much worse than any previous migraine they had experienced.
Cutting Edge Technology
“I am pleased that John Rose Eyecare has been identified as a center of professional excellence in the area of eyecare. I have been a patient for over 10 years now and am always impressed with John’s professionalism, know-how and cutting edge technology that you would not necessarily expect in Kingston Upon Thames in a modest setting. John’s advice is thorough, tailored and honest whereas his solutions are problem-orientated with the customer’s needs and abilities at heart.”
State of the art equipment
“State of the art equipment – Mr Rose is always more than happy to explain its technology which is a huge investment for a small business. Patients must be aware that John Rose Eyecare is not your average opticians!”
I could not imagine going elsewhere
“I was first seen by Mr Rose as an emergency on the recommendation of my colleague back in 2007. I had lost a contact lens and was due to fly out on holiday to India the next day. I could not bear the thought of coping in the heat in my spectacles. Mr Rose miraculously sorted me out for my trip, and I have been a client of his ever since. The fact that I no longer work in Kingston, but still travel in for my appointments I think is testament enough to the service provided by Mr Rose and his team. I could not imagine going elsewhere. I remain amazed by the cutting edge equipment used, the thorough and detailed examinations and the careful explanations provided at each appointment.”
A high level of customer service and professionalism
“I have always had and continue to receive a high level of customer service and professionalism when attending the eyecare centre.”
Passion and knowledge
“As a John Rose customer for some years and with a complicated condition with my eyes, I respect and appreciate the passion John and his staff have for their business and their customers. I feel that I couldn’t get better care, better equipment or more knowledgable advice. They are always helpful. I was originally referred to John Rose by a hospital consultant and whenever I have been referred by John Rose to specialists they all speak highly of his knowledge and attention to detail. I trust the care of mine and my family’s eyes to John Rose and his staff.”
The best possible outcome
“Two years ago my partner received excellent and speedy help when he developed a torn retina. The quick diagnosis and referral by John Rose Eyecare resulted in the best possible outcome and his sight was restored. I have learned more about eyes than I thought would have been possible since going to John Rose Eyecare and have greatly appreciated the intensive care that I have received at my annual appointments. Each time I go there seems to be another diagnostic test added into the session and I leave feeling confident that my eye care is in the best possible hands.”
A great sense of humour and wonderful with children
“My son, aged 9, mentioned that he could not see the board clearly at school. I immediately booked a routine eye exam at John Rose Eyecare. From that moment on we received only the most sensible, practical and comforting advice with a bespoke eyecare plan and a wonderful choice of junior specs. John is always able to impart the latest facts and statistics on recent scientific research and studies with regards to children’s sight. I have wholly entrusted my son’s eye health to John Rose. What’s more, my son genuinely enjoys his visits to see John who has a great sense of humour and is wonderful with children (and adults!)”
“You must be one of the last independent retailers in Kingston….it seems I have been a customer for 18 years now, just because I like your no-nonsense approach, the personalized service and you never over-charged me or tried to sell me something I did not need.”
A brilliant opticians
“I came back as a customer to this optician after a few dreadful experiences with two other big name opticians who gave me incorrect advice and prescriptions. Since coming back to John Rose I have had excellent service and advice, never had to wait past appointments times and staff, even at busy times, have always been courteous and helpful….I have never seen such sophisticated equipment before; indeed had never been tested on them before and feel very confident of the results. John Rose Eyecare are a brilliant opticians and deserve any accolades and awards going. My thanks to them for looking after me over the years.”
I didn’t believe I will get naked when I come today at John Rose Eye Care – I. W.
I tried the PBM bed for long term lower back pain, which has not responded to manipulation over the years. Over the 20 plus years that John Rose has looked after my eye health and that of my family I have been impressed with his continual quest for knowledge and his investment in the very latest equipment. I know that he has meticulously researched this machine.I also know that he and some of his staff have used it themselves to great effect on a number of ailments. I have now had 12 sessions and I can honestly say that I felt lighter after the first session and even better after the second. I gradually noticed that bending movements which would normally trigger pain, such as filling a supermarket trolley, emptying a dishwasher etc., were becoming easier – as though my spine had been oiled inside ! Many Osteopaths have treated me for inflammation and quite a few have refused to use manipulation, as I have been too inflamed to benefit. The PBM bed works on the mitochondria, reducing inflammation at a very deep level. And….it works. I feel sure that it has all kinds of other benefits and as it…
I have used the Novo Thor whole body pod and I must say it works.
I definitely feel more energized after each session. By the time I get home at the end of a long day I am able to do so much more. In fact I have also noticed an improvement in my sleep. I am pretty sure the red light is related to this.
So thankful for this experience.
Definitely felt difference after 2 sessions and helped me go through my operation. 20 minutes of relax and happiness, when you are really taking care of yourself, physically and mentally.I’ve had problems with chronical pain and nothing was helping,now thanks to John and Christine, found something what makes big difference.
I came to visit John after I had broken my foot and had some persistent aches and pains.
I was a little skeptical at first, but I’ve been seeing John as an optician for nearly 20 years, and I trust his judgement implicitly. I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. After only one session I felt that I had more spring in my step – quite literally – and the aches and pains had subsided. I will definitely be investing in the full 10 sessions as soon as possible.
