We know you love our Kangen water, but did you know that’s not the only health-boosting service we provide here at Tap Into Health? If you feel constantly tired or suffer from chronic pain, you may benefit from PBM therapy, which we also provide at our Concord store.
What is PBM Therapy?
Photobiomogulation (also known as PBM) therapy, is a treatment that involves the use of lasers or LED lights, to repair muscle tissue whilst reducing pain and inflammation. It’s an ideal treatment for anyone who feels constant pain or tiredness, who doesn’t want to rely on medication to “fix” the problem.
The use of PBM has been backed by countless studies, including one conducted at The Harvard Medical School.
Who is PBM suitable for?
Anyone who suffers from chronic pain, inflammation or general tiredness. Whether you are an athlete in pain or even a tired mom, almost everyone can benefit from the tissue healing properties of PBM.
Let’s take chronic pain as an example. There are so many treatments your doctor can offer you, but these are normally in the form of pills, right? PBM delivers powerful infrared light which is absorbed at the cellular level, getting right to the heart of where your pain or inflammation is. If you are looking to take control of your pain, PBM is definitely a great alternative.
How does Photobiomogulation work?
Photobiomogulation (PBM) produces an infrared light that targets the cause of this oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is an imbalance of free radicals (that create damage to our cells) and antioxidants (that protect and repair cells) in the body. In essence, there’s too much bad instead of the good, causing pain and inflammation in our body.
This can lead to conditions such as chronic inflammation, cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease and many more.
PMB uses lights that targets oxidative at the cellular level. The results can give a reduction of pain and inflammation in the body. Regular use helps to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and can even help reverse them altogether.
PBM therapy is delivered into your cells by laying down on a specialist unit. To the untrained eye, it looks like a tanning booth, but it’s actually a complex system that delivers powerful LED light deep into the muscle tissue to repair it.
Sessions take around 10 minutes and should be repeated twice weekly for optimum results. PBM is completely painless. The lights are not hot but you will feel a gentle warming sensation as the lights will boost your circulation, which encourages healing throughout the body.
Many people notice a reduction in symptoms straight away, with some even claiming to feel euphoric after a session.
