Photonic Red Light

Photonic Red Light Therapy is able to address many issues including physiological, mental, and emotional. It is effective and considered therapeutic because it stimulates cell activity that has been disturbed by injury. It promotes healing and provides temporary pain relief. The Photonic torch emits a beam of red light of a designated wavelength of 660nm. When applied to specific acupuncture points the light penetrates deeply under the skin mediating cellular excitation, changing the message the brain receives stimulating the brain to release chemicals and hormones that control pain, promote immune and healing responses; i.e analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Benefits

The benefits of red light therapy include:

  • Relief from acute and chronic pain

  • Stimulation of the immune system

  • Anti-inflammatory effects

  • Improved metabolism

  • Increased blood supply

  • Increased circulation

  • Generation of new tissue and cells

  • Elevated wound healing

  • Elevated endorphin levels

  • Increases lymphatic drainage

  • Regulates seratonin levels

  • Improved mental and emotional well being

  • Stimulation of the acupuncture and acupressure points

Can assist in various conditions including but not limited to:

  • Muscular related issues

  • Skin conditions

  • Stomach ulcers

  • Arthritis

How Does It Work

Red Light or Photonic Therapy is the application of a non-invasive, painless, low frequency red light to stimulate acupuncture points. When Photonic Red light is applied to acupoints  (acupuncture / acupressure points of Traditional Chinese Medicine) for 5-10 seconds, it activates the acupoints which excites nerve arousal through the intraneural collagen matrix of the body and stimulates the brain to release neurotransmitters and neuromodulators in response. Photonic Red Light is an effective alternative to acupunture - stimiluation of acupoints through needling. This alternative is fast, easy, safe, non-invasive option. Red light therapy will require multiple sessions that can be either days or weeks apart, depending on the issue.

 

 

Facts About Photonic Red Light Therapy

The healing benefits of light have been widely used for many hundreds of years. Scientific value was acknowledged when a Nobel Prize was awarded to Niels Finsen for his use of red light therapy in successfully treating smallpox and lupus over a century ago.

 

The word 'Photonic' is derived from the Greek word 'photos' meaning light. Light transmits at different wavelengths, in therapeutic applications; the Red Light emits light at 660nm which research has shown to have the most benefit to the body. Therapeutic Red light contains light emitting diodes (LEDs), these LED's are convenient sources of intense light at wavelengths that stimulate specific physiological functions within the body. Light-emitting diodes (LED) originally developed for NASA plant growth experiments in space, showed promise for delivering light deep into tissues of the body to promote wound healing and tissue growth.

 

Healthy tissue cells vibrate at about 660 nanometers; equal to the wavelength the Red Light torch emits. When tissue sustains an injury or illness the vibration level in the affected cells is reduced. By increasing the vibration level in the cell with the application of Red Light therapy; wound healing and tissue growth or cellular regeneration occurs through the stimulation of mitochondria within the cells. Mictochondria stimulation increases the production of cellular ATP. ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a complex molecule that is the primary energy currency of the cells of the body. By increasing ATP production at a cellular level, causes damaged cells to accept nutrients and eliminate toxins quicker. It also excites collagen regeneration within the damaged tissue. Collagen is the main structural protein of the various connective tissues; such as tendons, ligaments etc. Increased collagen production can improve the structure of tendons, bones, skin, teeth, and cartilage of joints. If therapy is administered quickly enough, it can prevent the death of the damaged cells.

 

Red Light or Photonic therapy works well as a complementary therapy with a Sports Massage treatment or it can be used on its own.
