How is this super healing power achieved?
As previously mentioned in other articles, NASA has known about the benefits of Red Light Therapy since 1998 and have been using it to benefit their high-performance teams since then.
Near-infrared wavelengths have the ability to penetrate the cells 5cm below the skin, and that is why you are able to generate healing and recovery deep into your muscles. This is the unique power of the Red Light Therapy technology.
The near-infrared wavelengths increase microcirculation and the formation of new capillaries. This results in the area receiving more oxygen and nutrients to assist with the natural healing process. This means that pain can be relieved, muscles will stop aching and recover faster, and inflamed joints will loosen up and improve in mobility.
The visible red and near-infrared light energy induce the same process in the targeted cells. Through the absorption of the light photons, the photochemical reaction eventually causes the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the fuel of all cells in your body.
This causes increased synthesis of procollagen in fibroblasts which causes cells to rebuild and regenerate. The end result of this being increased collagen and elastin synthesis, with the healing and strengthening of damaged tissue.
Due to the energy systems being stimulated in the blood as well, LED phototherapy has a systemic effect on inflammatory or immune cells in nonadjacent tissues to the target area, as well as those cells in the targeted area. This means that the benefits and energy created will not be limited to the treated area, but will travel to nearby cells as well.
