Rita Richesin, RN,BSN, MT, CBT
Certified Light Energy Tech
Rita started in the health care field studying and working as a medical laboratory technologist and radiology tech, worked for several years in the hospital setting and went on to pursue other areas of interest. She later graduated from Lincoln Memorial and Tennessee Tech University with a BS in nursing. She has worked in Home Health, Hospice, School Nursing, Birth -3 years, Hyperbaric Oxygen & Wound Treatment centers, and Senior Behavioral Health.
She even found time to work with her wonderful husband, Jerry in the Feed, Seed & Hardware business he owned & operated for 40 years. They are blessed with two sons & their beautiful wives and 4 incredible grandchildren.
After studying Massage therapy & Esthetician training, she worked as a Licensed Massage Therapist. She became interested in Quantum biofeedback, and is a SCIO/EPFX Biofeedback practitioner.
She has always been interested in the Alternative, Integrative methods of health & wellness. She grew up on a farm with a mother who often used “old remedies” for health issues. Her mother believed in using “positive thoughts” to relieve pain and to eat nutritionally healthy foods that were grown on the farm. Her encouragement led Rita to pursue a lifetime of learning of self, spirituality, health and sharing the knowledge & blessings she has been given.
Together Rita and Jerry are building a business in Light therapy using Avalon Effect systems for both human and animal clients. Rita has personally seen and experienced healing results by using infrared, red and blue lights in the traditional medical field as well as outside that realm. Infra red light therapy has been used for many years in wound healing & infection. The Navy seals use light therapy and it is also used on NASA’s space station.
Light therapy has been shown to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms in over 50 years of independent research worldwide. Both visible red, blue and “invisible” infrared light effect at least 24 positive changes at the cellular level. Light therapy causes biological effects because different wavelengths are absorbed by specific proteins. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are a form of light therapy that is a relatively recent outgrowth of the laser industry. LED disperses light (red, blue or infrared) over a greater surface area resulting in shorter treatment times for a given area. Pulsed Light is the most profound, safe, ion-invasive way to ‘enlighten’ your cells. “It represents a quantum leap in medicine” says Harry T. Whelan, M.D., professor of neurology and a leading researcher in the field.’ - USA today, 2/2/2007
Infra red can help the body produce some of the same results as hyperbaric oxygen, by supporting the body through the red blood cell production of nitric oxide resulting in blood vessel dilation, which equals increased circulation and supporting the body to balance & heal itself.
The Avalon Light system also incorporates sound frequencies including Nogier, Solfeggio, and unique zero point technologies for the most desirable results. According to Dr Paul Nogier, sickness results when cells, molecules or particles of matter are out of their normal resonance or vibratory pattern. By repeatedly exposing damaged tissue to the normal resonance frequencies associated with that tissue, healing often occurs, sometimes quite rapidly.
Light in the 633nm range can improve the clarity, tone and texture of skin, giving a more youthful appearance. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, blue light can actually help skin health by increasing collagen production. Blue light is also known to be very calming for the central nervous system, relaxing the sympathetic nervous system and the stress response thereby enabling the body to use more energy for healing and renewal.
The Richesins are excited about their latest journey with Equine Health & Wellness using the Equine Light Therapy system scientifically proven to be effective in the assessment and treatment of many equine ailments and injuries. The scanning device locates soreness, inflammation or injuries by pinpointing locations where physical problems exist. The powerful light therapy device is then used to address those problem areas resulting in more flexible and happier horses that act and perform better.
Their mission is to assist individuals to identify and correct stress before it can cause symptoms, therefore creating health and well-being. They are committed to offering the most advanced technologies and provide educational support and welcome all who wish to achieve improved body balance for themselves, their loved ones, and the clients they may serve, be they animal or human.
