What is Photobiomodulation?

Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM), also known as Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT), is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that involves the use of low-intensity light energy to stimulate natural healing processes in the body. The light energy is absorbed by the cells, which then triggers a series of biochemical reactions that lead to increased cell metabolism and tissue repair. PBM therapy has been found to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and promote the production of ATP, a molecule that provides energy to cells. By reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow to the affected area, PBM therapy can help reduce pain and promote faster healing. It's a safe and effective therapy that has been used to treat a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, arthritis, skin issues and even depression.

What are the biggest benefits of PBM? 

PBM Therapy has been shown to offer a number of benefits for chronic pain sufferers including:

  •  Its ability to reduce pain and inflammation. By stimulating the body's natural healing processes, PBM therapy can help reduce pain and swelling in the affected area, making it easier to move and perform daily activities. 
  • It can improve range of motion, making it easier to move without pain. 
  • It is non-invasive, meaning it doesn't require surgery or medication, making it a safe and effective option for those who prefer to avoid more invasive treatments. 
  • It's a natural solution that doesn't have any negative side effects, unlike some medications. 
  • Is a convenient option as it can be done in just 15 minutes, making it a flexible treatment option for those with busy schedules. 

Overall, PBM therapy is a promising solution for those who suffer from chronic pain and want to improve their quality of life.

What to do to prepare for a NovoTHOR session? 

There are really just two things to do to best prepare for your NovoTHOR session one make sure to drink lots of water so you are well hydrated.  And second, it's best to avoid using any lotions or creams, the half hour before your appointment, as these may interfere with the light therapy.

What is a session like? 

During a NovoTHOR session, you can expect to lie down comfortably in the NovoTHOR device, which looks similar to a tanning bed. The NovoTHOR system uses a combination of red and near-infrared light to target the entire body. You will remove your clothes for the session. The session typically lasts between 12-15 minutes, and during this time, you may feel a warming or tingling sensation throughout your body. This is a normal response to the therapy and is a sign that the light energy is working to stimulate your body's natural healing processes. 

The NovoTHOR device is designed to provide a precise and consistent dose of light energy, ensuring maximum therapeutic benefits. After the session is complete, you should feel relaxed and rejuvenated. You may experience some relief from pain or inflammation right away or over the next few days, although it's common to require multiple sessions for long-term benefits. Overall, NovoTHOR is a safe, non-invasive, and effective therapy that can help improve your quality of life.
