1. A personal therapy compartment comprising:
a base extending from a first end to a second end, wherein the base is of a size to receive a human being, wherein the base includes a base surface;
a bed supported by and separated from the base surface of the base, said bed having an upper surface and a lower surface and being made of a light transmissive material and wherein the lower surface of the bed and the base surface are spaced apart from each other;
at least two spaced apart bed arrays of light emitting diodes located between the lower surface of the bed and the base surface of the base, wherein each bed array of light emitting diodes is adapted to transmit visible light through the bed and onto a body of the human being supported on the bed;
a cover pivotally attached to the base proximate the first end and wherein the cover comprises:
a divider panel attached to the cover, wherein when the cover is in a closed position the divider panel is positioned proximate the second end of the base, wherein the divider panel is configured to be positioned about a neck of the human to provide different environments for the human's body and the human's head;
a facial panel proximate the divider panel;
a facial array secured to the facial panel, wherein the facial array comprises a plurality of light emitting diodes configured to emit light towards a face of the human; and
a control panel configured to control one or more selected array of light emitting diodes of the at least two spaced apart bed arrays and the facial array, wherein the control panel is configured to control intensity and duration of beams of light emitted from the selected array of light emitting diodes such that the beams of light are transmitted onto a person laying on the upper surface of the bed.
