Light Therapist + Life Coach
Dabney Jacob is a certified light therapist, life coach certified by the Mary Morrissey organization and Positive Prime method practitioner. She’s passionate about adapting the latest technologies to create treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique profile. She augments her counseling sessions with devices designed to reduce pain, inflammation and other physical and emotional stressors that can create personal roadblocks. These high-tech treatments range from light therapy in which she employs light pads, light wands and light torches to help clients relieve pain and to increase circulation. Additionally, her sessions can incorporate sound and vibrational therapies such as the Bemer, BioScan, Biomat, The Healy and neuroscience technique, Positive Prime.
Jacob grew up in Virginia and moved to New Orleans after completing her graduate studies in 1976. She taught Art History and Latin at the Isidore Newman School for 12 years and also co-owned Orient Expressed, an import company that produced children’s clothing. After eventually selling the business in 2013, Jacob was able to prioritize her health and healing—having contracted a bacterial infection that left her lungs scarred years earlier. She credits her ability to guide others in achieving their life goals while addressing ailments that hinder them to her rich life experiences and personal healing journey that ultimately led to the establishment of her current practice.
Jacob lives in the Garden District with her husband of 49 years and enjoys the company of her two daughters, their families and her four grandsons who live nearby. In her free time, Jacob enjoys yoga, qigong, playing competitive bridge and MahJong.
Below is a selection of the primary therapies and technologies Jacob integrates into her practice:
- RED LIGHT THERAPY
Used for over 30 years to promote general wellness and optimal health, red light therapy can promote healthy cells, relieve pain and support circulation. The neoprene pads have polychromatic Led diodes embedded within them to deliver the light in various pulsed frequencies.
- THE BEMER
A full-body mat that stimulates and increases blood flow to healthy muscles for improved performance and recovery. Users achieve enhanced local circulation by receiving therapeutic signals while laying down on the mat, which uses pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology. BEMER also supports stress reduction, relaxation, and sleep management.
This system is an FDA-cleared, state-of-the-art testing machine that scans the body’s organs and functions for imbalances using electrodermal screening (EDS).
Designed to reduce joint and muscle pain—commonly lower back pain/ stiffness or arthritis—this mat is constructed of 17 layers that transfer radiant heat—as opposed to conductive heat offered by traditional heating pads. It improves microcirculation on the cellular level, quickening the healing or recovery process. It boosts the immune system, provides stress reduction, and promotes deep rejuvenating relaxation.
- THE HEALY
A wearable and versatile device (controlled by your Apple or Android smartphone) that uses Individualized Microcurrent Frequency (IMF) programs to harmonize your Bioenergetic Field for many important areas of life.
- POSITIVE PRIME
A therapy technique based on Positive Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, and Neuroscience. It exposes you to carefully phrased statements, evocative imagery, and specially designed musical background that send nurturing and empowering signals to the deep regions of your unconscious mind, affecting your overall behavior.
