Photobio modulation Therapy (PBMt) Overview

Photobiomodulation (PBMt), initially discovered in 1967 by Endre Mester at Semmelweis Medical University in Hungary, emerged from an experiment intended to treat rats with tumors using low-power laser beams. Instead of treating tumors, Mester noted accelerated hair growth and enhanced wound healing, marking the first observation of the therapeutic potential of what is now called Photobiomodulation. This discovery paved the way for the development of Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMt), which has since been supported by numerous studies demonstrating its efficacy in reducing pain and inflammation in various orthopedic conditions such as neck pain, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as enhancing wound healing and other health benefits.

Benefits for Wellness

Photobiomodulation is often hailed for its seemingly miraculous benefits. It reduces pain and inflammation associated with a variety of autoimmune conditions including neuropathy, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, as well as post-surgical recovery and injuries. The widespread use of full-body LED Light Therapy helps individuals feel better and recover faster. Notably, the owner of Regents Center, John Molenhouer, and his executive clients utilize ATP LED therapy beds to rejuvenate during the day, highlighting the therapy’s unique ability to revitalize both body and mind, and suggesting potential workplace applications.

Cognitive Enhancement

Globally, researchers and practitioners recognize that LED Light Therapy, especially near-infrared light, penetrates the brain and aids in restoring nerve cell function and repairing nerve damage through Neurogenesis. The therapy enhances mitochondrial energy production, improves circulation, and reduces inflammation in the brain. Specific frequencies can disrupt amyloid plaques, which are precursors to Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr. Lew Lim’s research with 810nm near-infrared LED light shows promising results in treating Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and TBI, with notable improvements in patient communication abilities. This systemic benefit is advocated by health experts like Dr. Mercola for its potential to combat the rising incidence of Alzheimer’s and Dementia among aging populations.

Enhanced Athletic Performance

Used by organizations such as the NCAA, NFL, Premier Soccer, UFC, and the US Military, the ARRC LED ATP Full-Body LED Light Therapy system is proven to expedite recovery from injuries and enhance pre-competition conditioning. Research confirms that the appropriate wavelengths and doses of LED Light Therapy can improve athlete performance by increasing strength, endurance, and speed, and by protecting against competition-related physical damage. This endorsement by military researchers and repeated purchases by professional sports teams underscore the system’s superior performance.

Aesthetic Improvements

Since 2007, LED Light Therapy has been a staple in the aesthetics industry for reducing wrinkles. Feedback from users of our facial panel systems, such as reports of rejuvenated skin, longer eyelashes, improved hair health, and effective acne treatment, inspired the development of full-body LED Light Therapy beds. Such testimonials underscore the therapy’s broad utility beyond facial aesthetics, evidenced by improved collagen production, enhanced skin elasticity, and the reduction of hyperpigmentation through increased blood flow, as shown in treatments of conditions like eczema.
