Red Light Therapy
Your Full Body Wellness Solution
"Photobiomodulation" (PBM) - A.K.A. Red Light Therapy - utilizes non-ionizing electromagnetic energy to trigger photochemical changes within cellular structures that are receptive to photons, particularly the powerhouses of the cells: the Mitochondria.
In our cells, the Mitochondria perform the function of producing Adrenosine Triphosphate (ATP) or cellular energy. In a Red Light Therapy session, they absorb the visible Red and Near-Infrared Light (NIR) energy, stimulating natural reparative, restorative, and healing processes at the cellular level.
The key to this entire process is a Mitochondrial enzyme called "Cytochrome Oxidase C", a Chromophore, which accepts photonic energy of specific wavelengths when functioning below par.
While the term might seem complex, let's keep it simple: PHOTO (light energy) work at the BIOlogical, cellular level, MODULATING or modifying our processes for optimal healing, wellness, and overall functioning!
Red Light Therapy Applications
Red Light or PBM Therapy has been applied widely in the health care realm: in nursing physiotherapy for the elderly, white-collar workers, sports crowd soothing physiotherapy, female common nursing physiotherapy, and even for beauty.
Quite literally, the list spans from head to toe... but how? To put it most simply, all of the cells in our tissues have the same Mitochondria and PBM Therapy works by targeting the electron transfer chain in our Mitochondria.
This revolutionary LED light bed technology has been specifically designed and developed to treat large areas of the body with a range of conditions all at once! Patient response to PBM Therapy can vary from person to person depending on a number of factors, such as:
Muscle Bulk or Fitness
Pre-Existing Damage or Arthritis Severity
Time of the Condition
Coexisting Medical Conditions
What Specific Aches & Pains Can Benefit
From PBM Therapy?
Amazingly, the treatment improves overall immune function and eliminates sub-health, something we could all use a little boost of these days. Here are just a few of the conditions that Red Light Therapy has been proven to prevent, relieve, and improve:
RELIEVE Cardiovascular & Cerebrovascular Diseases
PBM Therapy has a warming effect on the skin and mucous membranes, dilates the blood vessels of deeper tissues, improves blood circulation, and purifies blood. It has been shown to relieve or even prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, such as hyperlipidemia and hyperglycemia.
PBM Therapy can increase the catalase activity of cellular mitochondria, promote protein solidification of diseased tissues, promote the formation of new squamous epithelial cells, accelerate the absorption of exudate, strengthen muscle tone, and effectively improve carious nerves, tissues and joint pain, dysmenorrhea, gout, sports injuries, and more.
PBM Therapy can promote partial blood circulation, increase the phagocytosis of cells and macrophages, control infection, and promote inflammation dissipation. Moreover, PBM can have a positive carative effect on chronic inflammatory conditions, such as neurodermatitis, eczema, chronic lymphadenitis, and various classifications of arthritis, including senile osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
PROMOTE Wound Healing
Photobiomodulation Therapy can improve blood circulation, promote wound regeneration and repair, so as to achieve the effects of pain relief, swelling, granulation tissue growth, and shorten wound healing time. As well as reducing postoperative adhesion, promoting scar softening, and reducing scar contracture. It has a good effect on skin ulcers, wounds infected by trauma, chronic wounds, etc.
ENHANCE Liver Function
Photobiomodulation Therapy cam cause deep heat effects in the body, activate cells, improve tissue regeneration, promote cell growth, strengthen liver function, improve liver detoxification, and keep the liver in good condition.
Photobiomodulation Therapy can increase mitochondrial catalase activity, promote glycogen content, protein syntheses and adenosine triphosphate decomposition. Enhance cell vitality, enhance the body's self-repair and cell regeneration ability, but also increase the phagocytosis of white blood cells, improve immunity and disease resistance.
ENHANCE Sleep Quality
PBM can adjust the autonomic nerve to maintain a good state, effectively improve or eliminate headaches, dizziness, cold limbs and other circulatory issues, improve sleep, and improve sleep quality.
IMPROVE Postpartum Symptoms
PBM Therapy can signficantly improve hypogalactia and other postpartum symptoms such as nipple cracking and vulvitis, and promotes postpartum wound healing.
Red Light Therapy in Skincare
PBM Therapy is applicable for skin at all ages and stages. It can improve acne by accelerating the elimination of diseased or dead cells by promoting blood circulation and metabolism, allows macrophages to release cytokines, stimulates fibroblasts, produces growth factors, accelerates the skin repair process, and effectively eliminates harmful bacteria.
Exposure to Red and Near-Infrared Light increases lymph system activity, reducing swelling and puffiness. What's more, this revolutionary form of therapy stimulates the production of collagen and fibroblasts. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity, firmness, and fullness of your skin. The increased production of collagen and fibroblasts will smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, smooth the texture of the skin, and reduce pore size over time.
The Brain Does More than You Think
It controls mood, hormones, memory, and everyday executive functions, like decision making and planning, personality, movement, mood, concentration, sleep, and more. Supporting brain health is essential to successful daily functioning and quality of life at any age and stage. The brain plays a critical role in your body's processing of pain and relief signals and in the mental component to overall healing and wellness. Exposure of the brain to Red or Near-Red Infrared Light stimulates blood flow and increases oxygenation, making the therapy beneficial for paitents managing concussions and other Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).
Whether Your Aches Are:
Therapeutic lasers are particularly effective when administered very soon after injury, bringing pain under control and promoting healing sooner.
Red Light Therapy combats persistent chronic pain by promoting circulation to damaged tissues. The alternative solution can be powerful for long term pain relief.
Laser therapy improves post-activity recovery times and reduces Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), making it excellent for both pre- and post-workout for amateur and professional athletes alike.
