Infrared Light Therapy

How Does Infrared Light Therapy Work?

Nitric oxide is the key to the dramatic improvements that infrared light therapy provides. This short-lived gas is crucial to the health of your arteries. Infrared energy prompts the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the immediate vicinity. This boost in blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to injured, aching tissues, resulting in fast healing.

Red Light Therapy...

Reduces inflammation and pain.

Increases circulation and the formation of new capillaries. Increased circulation and the formation of new capillaries means the area receives more oxygen and nutrients

Increases phagocytosis, or the clean up of dead or damaged cells, including dead bacteria, helping in infection control.

Increases lymph system activity. This helps to ensure efficient clean up and detoxification without overtaxing the lymph system. Helps in prevention of lymphedema.

Stimulates the production of fibroblasts. Fibroblasts synthesizes collagen, elastin, and proteoglycans in the final healing phases.

Stimulates the production of collagen, the key protein involved in wound closure.

Causes the release of ATP, or raw cellular energy. This provides energy to the damaged and surrounding cells to do what they were designed to do – heal themselves.
