Contour Red Light Therapy in Raleigh, NC
Raleigh Central Chiropractic and Rehab provides FDA-cleared contour red light therapy in Raleigh, NC and beyond. With many of us spending more and more of our lives indoors, especially in the recent past, as well as many long winter months spent inside, we are missing out on the crucially beneficial effects of sunlight. With contour red light therapy, also known as low-level light therapy (LLLT), Raleigh Central Chiropractic and Rehab is able to provide our patients with therapeutic red light and near infrared light on the electromagnetic spectrum of light that activates the body’s natural healing response.
What is Red Light and Near Infrared Light?
Red light and near infrared light are on the electromagnetic spectrum of light emitted by the sun. This red light is bioactive in humans, meaning it has a positive effect on our cells. LED and near infrared light, in clinical therapeutic wavelengths of 635nm and 880nm, directly affect the mitochondria in our cells. This, in turn, stimulates increased cellular energy production (adenosine triphosphate, or ATP), allowing the mitochondria, which are the energy cores in our cells, to fulfill their purpose of cleaning, detoxifying and energizing cells.
FDA-Cleared Contour Light Therapy for Weight Loss
Backed by extensive government research, the Contour Light System is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive dermatological aesthetic treatment for body contouring, including the reduction of the size of the hips, waist and thighs. Because of it’s FDA clearance, it has become one of the most popular procedures to remove fat cells without surgery. Contour Light is also FDA cleared for the relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, and muscle spasms. It is highly effective in relieving stiffness, prompting muscle tissue relaxation and improving blood circulation.
