What Is Photobiomodulation Therapy?

Photobiomodulation therapy is an energy-based treatment that uses light to trigger photochemical changes in our biological systems. The human body has trillions of cells and within our cells are structures called mitochondria that produce the chemical energy required for cell functions.

If the mitochondria become physiologically stressed or diseased, energy production within the cell decreases, and cellular function declines. When applied correctly, light energy can be absorbed by molecules within the mitochondria and the transfer of energy induces biochemical changes that improve cell metabolism and reduce inflammation.
