HOW DOES IT WORK?
Research consistently tells us that sunlight is good for our body. However, most of us spend a majority of our waking hours indoors in front of computer screens, mobile phones, and under light bulbs. Those are blue light, not the kind of light our body needs day and night. The consequence of continuous exposure to blue light all the time is poor quality of sleep, fatigue, inflammation, and poor immunity against infection, germs, and cell damage.
The wavelengths of red and NIR lights are mild yet able to counteract the harmful effects of the blue light. Red and NIR lights stimulate the protective mechanisms in the cells to help our body to function normally. On contact with the skin, the wavelengths cause mitochondria to produce energy in an efficient manner, thus enhances production of antioxidants to fight inflammations and diseases. Because infra-red light is able to penetrate the inner layers of the skin, it is able to reach not just the muscles but also tendons and deep tissues. Many studies show a frequency or wavelength of 700 to 1000 nanometers is best for treating inflammation. As pain is alleviated, muscle injuries can recover faster.
PDT offers a very impressive result against acute and chronic inflammation in the body, and is effective in alleviating joint pain and boosting energy. The other health benefits of PDT include:
• Increased production of nitric oxides, which are vital for cardiovascular health
• Improved blood circulation in deep tissues
• Pain and inflammatory relief
• Energize the mitochondria within cells, triggering growth and repair
The benefits of PDT have been proven in hundreds of clinical studies. It is a natural and safe alternative treatment for pain and inflammation treatments. Besides medical practitioners, many professional sports teams and world-class trainers make use of the therapy for improved performance and muscles recovery benefits.
