Shining a light on Photobiomodulation

Power of Red Light Therapy at John Rose Eye Care

Welcome to the interesting world of Red Light Therapy (RLT)  or Photobiomodulation (PBM) at Light Therapy London, here within John Rose Eye Care – Kingston Upon Thames.

With our increasingly indoor lifestyles and the digital age keeping us from the vital exposure to natural sunlight, it has now become crucial to find alternative methods to harness the power of light for optimal health and wellness. Red Light Therapy at our clinic, in its various forms of treatment from whole body rejuvenation and pain relief, to dry age-related macular degeneration approved treatment; to optimal dry eye relief using red light therapy, Photobiomodulation, LLLT – these offer  numerous benefits backed by scientific research and technological advancements.

The Science of Light and Health

Light is not just a component of our daily life; it’s a vital source of energy that triggers various photochemical processes in our skin, essential for our overall health. Sunlight, known for its ability to enhance our mood and energy through the production of beta-endorphin and vitamin D, is now being mimicked by advanced therapies like RLT to offer health benefits even when natural sunlight is scarce.

The Evolution of Photobiomodulation

Photobiomodulation, the scientific term for RLT, has evolved significantly since the discovery of lasers in the 1960s. Utilising red and near-infrared light, RLT stimulates natural cellular processes, penetrating deeply into the skin to be absorbed by the cells’ mitochondria. This absorption boosts the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), enhancing energy availability and supporting the body’s healing processes, from improving daily energy levels to accelerating recovery from injuries.

The Impact of Mitochondrial Dysfunction

Mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to a host of problems, including chronic diseases and various conditions affecting the brain, muscles, and systems RLT offers a targeted and effective approach to support mitochondrial function, potentially restoring quality of life for individuals suffering from these conditions.
