How does it work?
While the exact cause for migraines is still somewhat of a mystery, the latest research suggests that preceding a migraine, blood flow is increased by as much as 300%, then decreased rapidly at the onset of the migraine. We know that phototherapy promotes vasodilation because it stimulates your cells to release nitric oxide into the blood stream. The flood of nitric oxide dilates your constricted blood vessels. We also know that phototherapy reduces inflammation. These are the two mechanisms that are believed to relieve migraine symptoms.
