The Healing Power of Red Light Therapy Clinic
September 25, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$100.00
The Healing Power of Red Light Therapy – a clinic by renowned Red Light Therapy expert, Trevor Wozencroft from The Original Red Light Therapy Company
Trevor has been successfully utilizing the McLaren Method of Red Light Photonic Therapy in the treatment of horses since 1996. This credible, complementary concept was first researched in Australia by Trevor’s associate Dr Brian McLaren, a Clinical Scientist and Veterinarian. Dr McLaren developed a comprehensive equine red light therapy system (The McLaren Method) and DIY kits to assist horse and dog owners that are available for purchase through The Original Red Light Therapy Company.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red Light Therapy is a scientifically advanced form of acupuncture, using red light instead of needles, to stimulate recognised acupuncture points, promoting healing by altering the electrical field potential in the skin.
The red light’s energy, known as photons, are changed into electrical energy by the connective tissue under our skin and this electrical energy is transmitted to the brain by our nervous system.
Stimulating specific combinations of points on the skin causes the brain to release particular hormones and additional chemical substances which relieve pain, increase immune response and promote healing.
Importantly, red light therapy is safe, gentle and easy to use at home by following simple instructions.

Wet Weather Policy
We have a large under cover area and so the clinic will go ahead regardless of the weather conditions unless severe storms are forecast.
What To Bring
We have sufficient seating for all attendees but if you need a super comfy chair or cushion, please feel free to bring your own. Wear a hat (we’ll have spares if you forget) and bring a drink bottle (free chilled water fill-ups are available).
Please note that the sanctuary is situated on a council-owned facility and we are required to implement the council’s COVID-19 directives which are:
- all visitors to the sanctuary must provide their contact details by either checking-in using the QLD COVID app or by entering their details into our visitors’ book.
- all visitors to the sanctuary who are 12 years or over must wear face masks whenever there is a Queensland Government directive mandating the use of masks outdoors. If you have an exemption from wearing a mask, we ask that you do not book a ticket at this clinic.
The sanctuary is staffed by volunteers. It is a safe space for people and horses alike. We do all that we can to make it a peaceful place, free from all forms of pressure and conflict. If you have an issue with any of the COVID-19 restrictions that we are required to implement, PLEASE do not book a ticket. Our volunteers should not have to deal with the conflict that ensues when some customers refuse to comply – nor should their health be placed at risk by coming into contact with visitors who are not wearing masks (even if they have a legitimate exemption). If booking tickets for other people, please ensure that they are aware of and agree to these requirements. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION & WAIVER
The horses and ponies at the sanctuary are all calm and content and usually happy to interact with visitors, however, horses are, by nature, unpredictable and they move quickly and suddenly when startled. Our volunteers will take every possible precaution to keep you safe but we cannot provide a 100% guarantee that a finger won’t get nibbled, a toe won’t get stood on or any other injury (minor or serious) won’t occur. Because of that, our insurer has asked that we add the below waiver conditions:

- agree to follow the directions given to you and agree that any misconduct or refusal by you, or anyone in your party, to follow any direction can result in the CANCELLATION of your participation in the event and your immediate removal from the vicinity of any horse. You understand that any such non-compliance may result in injury, death and/or permanent disability and you agree to indemnify Hoofbeats Sanctuary (Kanyini Connections Ltd) against all claims made by any person as a result of your failure to comply
- for yourself and on behalf of your heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, hereby RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS AND AGREE NOT TO sue Kanyini Connections Ltd, their volunteers and/or employees, other participants, landowners, lessors of premises WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH or LOSS OR DAMAGE TO PERSON OR PROPERTY.
