The Osteopathic Practice

How long does a treatment last?

Treatments last 20 minutes.
Due to Covid protective protocols, appointments are 45 minutes apart to allow for deep cleaning of the equipment and furniture, and 15 minutes room airing time.

What do I wear?

It is recommended that our clients be minimally dressed (underwear, swimsuit, etc). Treatment is enhanced by exposing as much skin to the light therapy as possible.

To prevent damage to the acrylic plastic surfaces, all watches and bracelets should be removed before the treatment session.

NovoTHOR Precautions

Photosensitive reactions
Some patients may be taking drugs or natural remedies known to cause photosensitivity reactions.

It is unlikely that a combination of NovoTHOR and drug will trigger a response. However, THOR suggest that “at risk” patients or patients with a history of such reactions be “patch tested” for the minimum recommended treatment time.

Reactions to treatment
Patients may report a number of sensations, such as localised feelings of warmth, tingling, or an increase or decrease in symptoms, within the 24-hour period immediately following NovoTHOR treatment.

Other sensations that may be experienced in response to NovoTHOR therapy are nausea or dizziness. In patients with persisting or severe treatment reactions, NovoTHOR treatment should be discontinued.

Pins, metal plates, plastics, and pacemakers
NovoTHOR may be safely used over metal implants, plastics and stitches and on patients fitted with a pacemaker

NovoTHOR is contra-indicated for use over the pregnant uterus.

However it may be used with caution on the pregnant woman as an adjunct to the other modalities being used for the treatment of back pain or other complaints

Do not use the NovoTHOR over any known primary or secondary lesions.

NovoTHOR treatment may be given for pain relief during the terminal stages of the illness. THOR recommend this be done only with the informed consent of both patient and consultant involved.
