Whole Body Phototherapy
You've found our website, so you've probably heard the hype about the whole body pod.
"The Philadelphia Eagles have one! It must be good!"
"Frozen shoulder? Hop in the pod!"
"Autoimmune disorder? Hop in the pod!"
"Leg fell off? Use your other leg to hop in that pod!" (I kid, I kid).
But really, how can one therapy work for so many conditions?
It sounds too good to be true doesn't it? Let's explore the science behind the whole body pod, and then you can make your own judgement.
The pod has five wavelengths in three colors: GREEN, RED, and NEAR INFRARED.
GREEN (528nm)-is a surface energy. It is thought to accelerate wound healing by promoting angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels from existing blood vessels). Small but promising studies have shown that it may be an effective treatment for skin conditions like acne and shingles.
RED (630nm & 660nm)-is proven to boost ATP production, reduce inflammation and pain, boost collagen and elastin in the skin, and promote healing in damaged tissue.
NEAR INFRARED (810nm & 850)-penetrates the deepest. It cannot be seen with the naked eye, so although it looks like some of our bulbs are burned out, that is not the case! 810nm light has been proven to do all the things that red does, but it penetrates deeper to stimulate deeper muscles, connective tissues, and organs. 810nm has been shown to boost athletic performance and mitigate post-exercise soreness.
Now you know about our wavelengths, let's look at specific benefits of a Whole Body Pod treatment:
Skin- Boosts collagen and elastin, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles, promotes angiogenesis.
Muscles, Ligaments, Tendons- Heals damaged tissue, reduces inflammation, reduces pain, boosts athletic performance, reduces post-exercise soreness.
Lymphatic system-Stimulates blood flow to the lymph nodes, which helps them flush toxins and lactic acid from your blood.
Stem Cells-Near infrared 810nm penetrates the bone marrow in your tibia and sternum, stimulating mesenchymal stem cell proliferation.
Whole Body- Boosts ATP production, boosts energy and metabolism, heals you systemically on a cellular level.
We like to think of our Whole Body Pod like a multivitamin. Different wavelengths of light energy have different physiological effects, and penetrate to different depths in the body. Using them together gives the maximum benefit, in one quick 20 minute treatment!
