WHAT IS INFRARED THERAPY?

Infrared Sauna is the use of infrared light waves to aid in burning calories, achieving deep relaxation, improving circulation, reducing pain, and improving cellular health. It is completed inside the sauna booth that uses Far, Mid, and Near-infrared waves to achieve a full spectrum of benefits. You should utilize this treatment, depending upon your needs and goals, suggested use is 1-3 times per week.

HOW DOES LASER THERAPY WORK?

Infrared heat therapy uses wavelengths of both the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight, which heats the body normally. The human body can benefit from sunlight in many ways, such as warmth to help regulate temperature and vitamin D for energy and overall health.

There are three levels of infrared heat, which benefit the body in different ways:

Near-Infrared Heat: Targets the surface of the skin which makes you feel better physically, rejuvenates the skin, raises your core body temperature, boosts your immune system, and improves circulation. Many people enjoy near-infrared heat for the pain relief that it can provide.

Mid Infrared Heat: Targets the soft tissue which helps with pain relief, improved circulation, and even weight loss.

Far Infrared Heat: This infrared heat penetrates deeply into the body which can aid in increasing your metabolism, aid in weight loss, and help to reduce stress, among other health benefits.

Relaxing in a full spectrum infrared sauna can lead to a number of health benefits and improvements, including but not limited to:

​​

  • Improved sleep patterns

  • Eased muscle tension

  • Soothed joint pain

  • More energy and less fatigue

  • Better appearance of skin and cellulite

  • Weight control and loss

  • Less stress and more relaxation

Laser therapy uses a process known as Photobiomodulation in which light triggers a cascade of biological events that leads to increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue.

No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery.
Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.

Laser therapy works by stimulating a process called photobiomodulation (PBM) in which photons enter the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria. To receive the best therapeutic outcomes from laser therapy, a sufficient amount of light must reach the target tissue. Factors that maximize reaching target tissue include:

 

• Light Wavelength

• Reducing Reflections

• Power

Our LED Light Treatment Works to Boost Collagen Production

Let’s quickly run through two biology basics: the Krebs Cycle and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).

1. The Krebs cycle is what generates cellular energy inside your body. Light activation boosts the body’s natural Krebs Cycle, which in turn assists in creating more ATP.


2. ATP is the energy currency of all the cells in your body. When your body has sufficient ATP levels, it has more energy to spend on restorative processes such as collagen and elastin production – these are the proteins your body uses to heal itself.
 

When all of those essential metabolic events happen, it results in greater outcomes beyond just collagen production. We see a cascade of benefits such as:

  • Cell generation to replace old cells (mitosis)

  • Reduction and prevention of cell death (apoptosis)

  • Neurogenesis (new neurons)

  • Development of new capillaries (angiogenesis)

  • Increased blood flow

  • Enhanced Nitric Oxide production

In summary: Light Therapy = Enhanced Krebs (energy) Cycle = Greater ATP Availability = More Collagen
