What is Red Light / Photobiomodulation?
Light has been used for centuries in the areas of healing and enhancing mood. We know that Light Energy emits energy frequencies, just as an X-Ray does when you go to your doctor to make sure you don’t have a fracture.
Here are Rejuvenations, we incorporate both the healing power and potentiation of Red Spectrum light at a frequency of 650nm, as well as the amazing healing and penetrating power of Near Infrared. Near Infrared is one of the deepest penetrating light sources that positively influences that body from detoxification, to cellular healing, and fat loss, to skin & collagen renewal. The combination of Pure Spectrum Red Light and Near Infrared at 850nm bring what I call a power pack “Dynamic Duo” of healing, boosting energy and recovery.
We combine Light Therapy with whole body cryotherapy, to amplify the reduction of inflammation and promote an increased metabolism, fat loss, and systemic healing, we have an amplification in healing and recovery as we combine each technology. The utilization of nitrogen based whole body cryotherapy enhances collagen and tightens and tones the skin and many clients report a “silky & soft” texture to their skin after several nitrogen cryo sessions.
So How does Light Heal?
Worldwide studies have shown that light energy is accumulative as well as cascading and can reduce pain and inflammation via Bio-stimulation, Edogenous opiate production, Slowing of sensory nerves, Restoring cellular energy, thus promoting healing.
Our Body is made up of approximately 5 Trillion individual cells. Each cell must supply its own vital energy called ATP (adenasine triphosphate). Every job a cell must perform needs to be done with the aid of ATP. Light is the only medication that can directly increase the production of ATP. Our cell power plant called Mitochondria, converts photon energy (Light Energy) into ATP (Cell Energy), when there is a deficiency. Research has shown that light energy now known as photobiomodulation can increase cellular ATP (Body Fuel) by as much as 150%.
This new fuel is then available to carry out the many repair and regenerative functions of our cells. In the essence, there is more energy to expel waste and increase lymphatic drainage which results in reduction of swelling and cellular inflammation. The increase in protein production includes collagen which is natures “repair” material especially, the skin. Newly formed collagen can then be used to regenerate tissue that once had been damaged.
Light bio-stimulation influences the body in several ways:
*Pain Control – low back pain, neck pain and associated inflammatory conditions, carpal tunnel, arthritis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, post herpetic neuralgia, muscle spasms and muscle cramps, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, etc.
*Reduction of inflammatory stages to achieve quicker healing – bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc.
*General Healing of Wounds & Injuries – fractures, tendon ruptures, ligamentous tears, torn cartilage, wounds, etc.
*Stimulation of collagen production – collagen is the main supportive protein of skin, tendon, bone, cartilage, & connective tissue. Light therapy is used to increase the sheen of the skin and reduce wrinkles, as well as tighten and tone the skin and reduce acne.
*Increase RNA & DNA Synthesis and Boost Immune System – helps immune system combat infection.
