Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it's real or imagined—the body's defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction or the "stress response". The symptoms can be both physical and psychological. Short-term stress can be helpful, but long-term stress is linked to various health conditions.
NIR (Near Infrared Light) stimulates mitochondrial energy metabolism and promotes wound healing.
MIR (Mid Infrared Light) is a long wavelength that can penetrate deep into the body's soft tissue where inflammation occurs, increase circulation and speed up the healing process.
FIR (Far Infrared Light), the longest wavelength, reaches deepest below the skin to heat the body from the inside out.
MIR and FIR are shown to:
- Decrease both acute and chronic pain, even after sessions
- Increase flexibility and range of motion
