WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?

There is a revolution under way in Western medical science, changing the view of how our bodies work. We are not just a bag of random biochemicals - we are charged energy beings, constantly interacting with and reacting to our environment.

New research has unearthed a whole new understanding about how our cells function optimally. Food is not the only way we obtain energy. The human cellular battery crucially depends on light and its interaction with the body.

In fact, the body operates in a similar way to a battery - and our health is determined by our ability to receive and maintain a charge. Red light, comprising both red and near-infrared wavelengths, is a uniquely healing part of the electromagnetic spectrum and it is one of the most natural ways to charge the body.

The healing power of red light is now being used as a new form of therapy which falls under the umbrella of Photobiomodulation (PBM). PBM is a general term that refers to therapeutic approaches based on the interactions of light.

"After more than 50 years of extensive research on PBM and has been proven as a non-invasive, non-toxic and non-traumatic therapy. There are no known side effects."

Red Light: Wavelengths ranging from 600- 650nm. Red light boosts the formation of collagen and elastin, and assists cell communication. It penetrates superficially (up to 5mm) and is mainly used for skin conditions.

Near Infra-red (NIR) light: Wavelengths ranging from 750–850nm. NIR stimulates healing, increases mitochondrial function and improves blood flow and tissue oxygenation. It penetrates deeper into the body (up to 10cm).

HOW TO RECHARGE?

Electric charge is a fundamental property of the body. The surfaces in our bodies - such as membranes, proteins and DNA - are all charged, negatively or positively, depending on whether they lose or gain electrons.

By improving the flow of charged electrons, we can re-energize the body. At the core of your body’s power to heal itself are sub-cellular organelles called mitochondria.

The number of mitochondria in a cell varies widely by organism, tissue, and cell type, and are concentrated in organs with high energy demands such as the brain, heart, liver, skin, ovaries and muscles.

This is because mitochondria generate most of the chemical energy supply in the body via the molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

They also regulate a wide variety of other tasks, such as signalling, cellular differentiation, and maintaining control of the cell cycle and cell growth. This is why they are often referred to as the ‘powerhouse’ of the cell.

Crucially, within the mitochondrial membrane are chemicals that act as ‘light receptors’. Red light energy is taken up by these receptors, increasing the electron transfer across the mitochondrial membrane via a cascade of reactions, resulting in increased charge, which leads to more available energy all through the body.

Pain and Inflammation

PBM significantly reduces pain, swelling and inflammation, accelerating the body’s ability to heal itself. The long-term effects of PBM (or LLLT) occur within a week or two and can last for months and sometimes years as a result of improved tissue healing.

Anti-aging

PBM uses red light to stimulate both collagen and elastin production, dramatically reducing lines and wrinkles and repair damage form UV rays. In addition, it stimulates collagen synthesis and fibroblast formation, anti-inflammatory action, stimulation of energy production in mitochondria, and even DNA repair. The most effective nm is 630-970nm LED.

Faster Recovery Rates

During PBM therapy, post-exercise levels of biochemical markers, Blood Lactate, Creatine Kinase, and C-Reactive Protein level, decrease significantly. There is an increase in circulation following the treatment, indicating tissues are receiving more oxygen and other nutrients important for healing—while also ridding themselves of toxic byproducts.

Enhanced Performance

PBM enhances physical performance and accelerates recovery by decreasing muscle acidosis in high-intense sports activities when applied before activity. Increased lactate levels indicate muscular fatigue or acidosis that is associated with anaerobic metabolism during intense exercise activity. High levels of blood lactate are related to impaired performance during intense muscular contraction.

Reduce Soreness After Exercise

PBM has been proven to reduce muscle strength loss and muscle soreness, resulting in fewer range of motion impairments. It improves muscle power and delays muscle fatigue due to the decreased lactate levels in blood as well as lower CK and C-reactive protein.

Neurogenesis

PBM is widely used to treat conditions related to neurogenesis. It improves post-stroke local microenvironment and stimulates neuroprogenitor cells, significantly alleviating behavioral deficits.

MULTI-ANGULAR APPROACH

FlexBEAM™ has been designed to fit the human body. Its shape and flexibility enables more effective and targeted dosing, because less power is needed to deliver energy directly to the affected site. This allows light to penetrate deep into difficult to-reach areas of the body – such as the knee and shoulder joint – which is impossible with flat light panels.

Ours is also a safer approach because it reduces unnecessary exposure of skin and surface tissue.

Because FlexBEAM™ is designed to be worn on the skin, each session yields a consistent dose and is not dependent on distance from the light source.

In turn, this reduces treatment time, making it possible to deliver a targeted therapeutic dose in 10 minutes for a single placement.

SAFE AND EASY TO USE PROGRAMS

The 3 preset programs in FlexBEAM™ cover a variety of medical and wellness applications in one device. Each program lasts for 10 minutes, allowing for multiple target sites in one session.

SURFACE

  • PENETRATION DEPTH 0-2.5cm
  • Red 635nm pulse NIR 810-850nm pulse
  • For conditions that are skin deep. A greater proportion of red light to near infra-red.

MEDIUM

  • PENETRATION DEPTH 2.5-4cm
  • Red 635nm pulse NIR 810-850 pulse
  • For smaller joints like the elbow, tissue, muscles and more. A mix of red and near-infrared.

DEEP

  • PENETRATION DEPTH 4-10cm
  • Red 635nm pulse NIR 810nm: CW (continuous wave)
  • For joints like knees and shoulders, and large organs like the liver. This preset has a predominance of near-infrared light.
