It is the use of colored light coupled with infrared and near-infrared light waves to deliver the ultimate biological nutrient of Light with the tuning power of Pulsed Resonant Frequency to profoundly benefit your mind, body, and spirit. This helps to relieve pain and increase circulation, energize and renew, relieve stress and restore vitality, and tune and balance our bodies.
In a very similar way that plants intake light through photosynthesis, we too absorb light. This positive effect from light is Photobiomodulation: The use of light to affect positive cellular change. Some of the benefits are relaxation, circulation, pain relief, vascular dilation, ATP production, and nitric oxide production. The photo energy induces the body to release more nitric oxide from the hemoglobin and possibly surrounding tissue.
Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule that is known to relax smooth muscle cells found in the arteries, veins, capillaries, and lymph vessels. When these muscles relax, they dilate the blood vessel, thus allowing increased circulation. Nitric oxide has been shown to be essential for wound healing (even if chronic or traumatic.) Scientific literature shows that nitric oxide promotes collagen synthesis, collagen fibril alignment, and angiogenesis. Nitric oxide works as a retrograde neurotransmitter in synapses, allows the brain blood flow, and also has important roles in intracellular signaling in neurons, immune response, and vessel control.
