  1. How does PBM Therapy work?
    Light is absorbed at the cellular level, targeting the cause of inflammation by reducing oxidative stress. Extensive research during last two decades has revealed oxidative stress can lead to chronic inflammation, which in turn contributes to chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders and pulmonary diseases.
  2. How does it compare with other therapies?
    PBM Therapy works at the cellular level, stimulating repair and normalizing cell function. Many therapies only address symptoms without addressing the source. That said, chronic degenerative changes often cannot be “healed,” instead they must be managed. PBM Therapy is a safe, effective, drug-free therapy that has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation at its source.
  3. How can PBM Therapy be used?
    This non-invasive therapy has been shown to be highly effective for acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions such as sports injuries, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, neuropathy, arthritis pain, gout, and more. The intended uses of PMB Therapy include: • redevelop muscles • restore motion to joints • an adjunct treatment for obesity 4. There are currently over 400 clinical trials (RCT), and 4000 laboratory studies on PBM Therapy, with 30 new research papers a month being reported on Pub Med. The ARCC LED ATP – PBM Therapy FAQs Photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy, formerly known as Low-Level Laser Therapy, is the application of red and near-infrared light to stimulate tissue repair, increase production of cellular energy, reduce inflammation and reduce pain.
  4. How is it applied?
    PBM Therapy is delivered to the entire body by simply lying in the PBM bed for as little as 10-12 minutes, users experience a decrease in pain and relaxation of muscle spasms.
  5. What will I feel?
    Unlike high-intensity lasers, PBM Therapy does not heat tissue. It does, however, increase circulation so a warming sensation is often experienced. The following outcomes have been reported by clients. These outcomes may not apply to every person, and are not intended to guarantee, promise, represent and/or assure that anyone will achieve the same or similar results:

    • “temporary euphoric feeling”
    • “increased energy levels”
    • “improved sleep patterns”
    • “improved mood”
    • “improved skin clarity and tone”
    • “improved bowel function”
    • “decreased swelling of extremities”
    • “increased energy”
    • “increased mental clarity”
    • “increased general sense of well-being”

    Occasionally some clients may experience mild fatigue, discomfort, or aches after a session. These responses should reduce after 24-48 hours; if they persist notify your Recovery Specialist.

  6. How many sessions are usually needed?
    Every person’s physiological conditions are unique, therefore each person’s reaction to PBM Therapy will be unique, as well. However, there are some general rules of thumb that apply to PBM Therapy. Acute injuries and inflammation from muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, burns, etc., typically show very rapid improvement and can resolve in 2-4 sessions. Long-term, chronic conditions can take as many as 12 sessions to get significant benefits, then weekly or biweekly sessions may be necessary to maintain benefits.
