The Science Behind Light Therapy

Did You Know?

Light Therapy is a nutrient to the body not a medication?

Medical Research is now showing that Pulsed Blue, Red and Near-Infrared Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is a preventative and restorative technology, that is changing the way you care for Yourself, your Family and your Pets!

“One of the most reproducible effects of Photo Bio Modulation (PBM) is an overall reduction in inflammation, which is particularly important for disorders of the joints, traumatic injuries, lung disorders, and in the brain. PBM can reduce inflammation in the brain, abdominal fat, wounds, lungs, spinal cord.”       Dr. Hamblin (Medical Researcher Harvard University)


Pulsed Blue, Red and Near-infrared Light Therapy is a safe, non-invasive (place pads on top of the skin) technology built to change the way you care for you and your family through all of life’s events – BIG or SMALL.

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) emit near infrared (NIR) light with blue &/or red light (poly-chromatic).  Applying these diodes with various wavelengths and light frequencies of light to the body that stimulates a cellular response which triggers the release of Nitric Oxide.

Nitric Oxide is considered a master molecule involved in every biological function in the body and its release ignites a cascade of beneficial chemical reactions that stimulate healing throughout damaged blood and nerve cells. As it is released, it enters the muscle cells in the walls of the blood vessels. The muscle cells relax as the blood vessel diameter enlarges, allowing more blood flow for increased circulation, lymphatic flow, collagen production, angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), decreasing inflammation and pain.  Nitric oxide is one part Nitrogen and one part Oxygen and communicates to every cell in your body – telling it when and how to operate. It’s first action is increasing circulation, which we have been taking for granted!


Circulation, is the flow of your body and is essential for everything from blood, oxygen and nutrients to lymphatics, hormones and neurotransmitters. True health is to experience the ease of flow! When the flow of circulation and vitality is constricted or blocked, we can experience pain and discomfort in a variety of ways. Returning a healthy flow is essential in supporting our bodies, while allowing in the good (nutrients, neurotransmitters, etc.) and filtering out the bad (toxins).


Inflammation and pain occur when there are low circulating levels of oxygen and blood flow in an area of the body. By increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, pain and inflammation are naturally reduced. NASA began studying LED light therapy several decades ago and found it decreased the time needed to heal injured NAVY Seals by 40%.  Light therapy continues to showcase as a way to reduce pain, maintain athletic performance, enhance overall well being, and dramatically speed up wound healing, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-surgery recovery.


Light therapy, taps into the stored energy and potential within our cells, stimulating the body’s innate healing chemistry, allowing for regeneration through the nerves, skin, soft tissue, connective tissue and bone. Any regeneration within the body, requires oxygen, nutrients and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) growth factors. The only way to deliver these is through proper circulation. Increased circulation has far reaching benefits for the whole body and the whole family.
