Red Light Therapy, also referred to as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Photobiomodulation (PBM). It utilizes red and/ or infrared light to improve unwanted conditions within the body. When red light therapy is provided within close range to the body, it can actually treat the source of pain. Whereas drugs can mask and cover up pain by interfering with the body’s chemical signals.
Red Light Therapy uses red and infrared light wavelengths which have been proven in scientific and clinical study to break down inflammation and stimulate a normal tissue healing response.
Using Red Light Therapy provides a variety of benefits both before and after exercise and training – call us to schedule your $35 consultation today. (Consultation Fee of $35 will be applied toward red light therapy treatments)
Close range red light stimulates fibroblast production (fibroblasts are the precursors to collagen), which will help thicken skin as well as the underlining connective tissue and restore elasticity. With thicker connective tissue and more elasticity, subcutaneous fat is less likely to push outward.
Close Range RLT stimulates the regrowth of neurons and the formation of synapses between neurons, which influences the brain’s neuroplasticity (the brain’s natural ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections.) This technology is especially helpful in cases of TBI where cognitive functions have been impaired.
Close range RLT stimulates blood circulation and the development of new capillaries. Because of this, more nutrients and oxygen are delivered to the skin that visibly results in a healthier radiance and increased collagen production.
Through the process of close-range Photobiomodulation, RLT super charges the cells mitochondria which results in an influx of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and other mitochondrial products. ATP provides cellular rejuvenation and fights oxidative stress which heals muscle tissue and joints, boosts muscle performance, and increases blood-flow and oxygenation throughout the body
Treatment of Inflammation
Inflammation is one of the body’s main processes of fighting against things that harm it, like infections, injuries, and toxins, in an attempt to heal itself. Chronic inflammation happens when this response lingers, leaving the body in a constant state of alert.
Red and infrared therapy technology have been proven to target fat cells (lipids), harmlessly shrinking them while releasing their contents into the surrounding tissue. They have the unique ability to increase the production of collagen and elastin in the body, resulting in a slimmer and more youthful look.
