Brain photobiomodulation therapy is an innovative light therapy based on the science of photobiomodulation to help the body re-establish homeostasis or a ‘State of Balance’.
How It Works
Brain photobiomodulation uses near infrared light to excite the mitochondria in our brain. This frequency can be absorbed and used by our mitochondria, the ‘power house’ of each cell. By energizing our mitochondria with these low-level photons, it leads to increased energy and helps our body re-establish homeostasis. Photobiomodulation has been shown to enhance the function of the immune system, improve sleep quality and assist with memory consolidation.
Each session lasts for approximately 20 minutes.
