How does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red light therapy has been featured in more than 3000 scientific studies; thereby the fact that it is effective has been quite well established. It is difficult to measure the biochemical processes that unfold on the cellular level; however there are universally accepted standing hypotheses on how red light affects the human body.
The scientific community postulates that the process involves a reaction by the body to these specific wavelengths of light. Since near infrared and red light wavelengths can be found in the sun; our bodies are inherently receptive to these beneficial wavelengths.
With red light therapy; the therapeutic process begins in the mitochondria. In the modern world, we are exposed to so many things that cause cellular stress, from radiation, free radicals, ph imbalances, injuries etc. An overabundant byproduct of this oxidative stress is Nitric Oxide (NO) which, to the detriment of the cells, binds with an enzyme called Cytochrome C Oxidase in the mitochondria. The fundamental pathway of action by red light lies in the decoupling of this bond through a mild stress influence on these organelles. This process frees up the Cytochrome C oxidase to optimally produce ATP, the energy that all powers all living cells.
The benefits of this are significant, but they don’t stop there; the release of Nitric Oxide is also very advantageous, as NO acts as a natural vasodilator, relaxing the walls of the blood vessels and allowing more blood to flow which in turn can help speed up healing and help reduce inflammation. There are many cascading and beneficial spinoff effects that take place as a result of these core processes which is why red light therapy has been associated with so many positive health outcomes.
Human cells are densely packed with mitochondria, and good cellular respiration is fundamental to good health. One medical hypothesis holds that the degradation in the quality of the mitochondria through the over-accumulation of free radicals, can actually speed up the aging process. This may be one of the reasons that the use of red and NIR wavelengths on human tissue are so closely tied to anti-aging benefits.
These modalities are for education and information purposes only and is not intended as medical advice or a substitute for medical advice. Queens Health Centre and Wellness Spa does not intend these products to cure any physical, skin, or mental conditions solely from their use.
A qualified health professional should always be consulted prior to using these products, and professional medical attention should be sought with regard to any serious or life-threatening conditions.
"We see many patients with chronic pain and chronic fatigue in family practice. Unfortunately, conventional medicine doesn't have much to offer for these conditions.
People are tired of taking pills. Red and near infrared light are wonderful modalities which fuel mitochondria and helps the body regenerate. Red light has a wavelength of 650 nm and works on your skin, NIR has a wavelength of 850 nm, and penetrates 2 inches deep and works on joints, tendons, nerves and muscles. NIR also promotes a profound relaxation due to increased melatonin production. The contraindications for this therapy are if you have burns, active cancer, lupus, epilepsy or are pregnant. I have personally tried red and infrared light therapies and noticed improved skin texture, energy levels and reduction in knee pain just after 4-5 sessions. If you have any questions with regards to red light treatment please don't hesitate to contact me. "

Pulsed electromagnetic field technology is a soothing and restorative modality that stimulates and exercises the cells to address cellular dysfunction and support overall wellness. PEMF Therapy works by recreating the earth’s magnetic fields, which are critical to human life. PEMF provides healing from a cellular level to quickly relieve symptoms and inflammation enhancing the body’s natural recovery process. PEMF Therapy has gained approval from the FDA for varied clinical treatments to promote healing of bone fractures, migraines, and depression. PEMF is backed by a tremendous amount of research and scientific evidence. There are over 2,000 medical studies that evaluate the positive effect of PEMF on the body. PEMF is an important part of our preventative maintenance as it also helps combat inflammation from forming in the first place.
What is PEMF Therapy ?
RED LIGHT THERAPY WORKS BETTER WITH PEMF
With magnetism, oxygen, and light we have the power to turn back the clock on our cellular health, and to take some control of our aging process. The benefits are compelling no matter if you are in your eighties, have limited mobility or are an athlete. . Magnetism, oxygen, and light created life. When you expose the body to these powerful natural forces, you can restore its natural order. Charging the body with PEMF charges our cells which separates them, allowing for more oxygen and better nutrient absorption. This creates an immediate window of opportunity for optimal infrared light absorption aiding in the reversal of oxidative stress and optimizing APT (energy) production. Red Light Therapy and PEMF Therapies work together at a cellular level of healing
Massage therapy is a hands-on technique that uses pressure and strokes to help you relax and relieve tension. A trained therapist uses their hands or tools to work on your muscles, tissues, and joints, aiming to improve blood flow, reduce muscle soreness, and cause you to feel better overall. It can help with issues like pain, inflammation, swelling, tendonitis, and a variety of other physical issues. Massage therapy can also help you relax and feel less stressed providing a way to unwind or decrease anxiety.
