Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation) on the Novothor Whole Body Light Pod

Light therapy (Phoyobiomodulation) on the NovoThor Whole Body light pod – rejuvenating full body light meditation session to boost energy within your cells.

What is Photobiomodulation?

Photobiomodulation (PBMT) is the use of different wavelengths of light to reduce oxidative stress – a cause of various degenerative diseases, inflammation, illness as well as ageing. Photobiomodulation uses wavelengths of light to inhibit Mitochondrial Nitric Oxide (mNO); thus, preventing it from attaching to the mitochondrial cells. As a consequence, PBMT increases the binding of oxygen to the mitochondria. This leads to a surge in ATP production which as a result provides your cells with more energy to perform their vital functions. It also reduces the production of ROS (reactive oxygen species ) which is the driver of inflammation in the cells and body.

You may already be aware that the retina uses more energy than any other tissue in the body – more than the heart, muscle and the brain. It is also known that the eye ages faster than any other tissue in the body. What you may not know, however, is that the “debris” this energy burning creates (known as Drusen) causes inflammation. By the time we have reached 70 years old we will have lost 1/3rd of the photoreceptors in the Retina. Our mitochondria becomes dysfunctional and we get an increase in inflammation and a decrease in available cellular energy

However, we now understand that Mitochondria absorbs two wavelengths of light – Red at around 630nm and near infra-red at around 830nm. This has the effect of “recharging” the batteries, which increases energy production and reduces inflammation and ROS.

What Photobiomodulation helps with?

Oxidative Stress and Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in ailments such as: Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetes, Stroke, Arthritis, Ageing (Wrinkles), Insomnia, Acute inflammation, Chronic inflammation, Strength Loss, Chronic fatigue, Neurodegeneration, Decreased Performance in sport, Decreased recovery in sport, Fibromyalgia and Autoimmune Diseases.

PBMT could be the key to reducing these. Even if you’re not an elite athlete or have a serious medical issue, PBMT could still make you feel more awake, rejuvenated and energised; thus, providing you the opportunity to be at your best.
