Functional improvement throughout the body!
Photobiomodulation therapy uses both near infrared (NIR) light and visible red light wavelengths to stimulate repair and normalize cellular function. This therapeutic use of these specific wavelengths have been studied for nearly 4 decades and have over 600 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) published and featured in over 4000 lab studies. PBM is currently being used in thousands of clinics, hospitals, and by professional sport organizations around the globe.
The wavelengths we use are non-ionizing, meaning they do not damage cells, but actually stimulate repair via photons into our tissue. PBM does not heat tissue, however it does increase circulation so a warming sensation is often experienced. Acute conditions often improve in only a handful of treatments and chronic conditions are often improved over 1-2 months depending on the severity and the condition being treated. Minimum interval recommendations are 3 times week until results are achieved.
Natural Health Benefits:

How Does Red and NIR Light Enhance ATP Production?
The short answer is: by breaking up the major roadblock to ATP and water production, which is harmful excess nitric oxide. During the creation of ATP synthase, nitric oxide competes with oxygen, which stops the eventual production of ATP. This also increases oxidative stress, which can lead to cellular death. The photons in red and NIR light excite electrons, which helps break up nitric oxide bonds so H+ ions can move through the process more effectively, resulting in more ATP energy that powers your cells and your entire body. The more efficiently your cells create ATP energy through cellular respiration, the better your body feels and performs. Red and NIR light stimulates mitochondria and works against nitric oxide & oxidative stress that weakens our cells and slows us down.
