Light & Touch Therapy wants you to discover the revitalizing power of light


Why Does Light Therapy Work? Red Light stimulates the mitochondria in every cell to increase production of ATP, thus awakening regrowth and the self-healing mechanisms present in your body. Light energy stimulates the release of nitric oxide from hemoglobin into the blood stream. When nitric oxide is released it enters the muscle cells in the walls of the blood vessels. The muscle cells relax as the blood vessel diameter enlarges, allowing more blood to flow through the vessels.

Nitric oxide is increased locally when light energy is applied to any specific site. Along with it, blood flow increases at the same point. Inflammation occurs when oxygen levels are too low, so increasing blood flow via nitric oxide reduces inflammation.

Tissues that need to heal require oxygen, nutrients, ATP and growth factors. Nitric oxide provides an environment for enhanced healing. The key to accomplishing this? Better blood flow. The result is greatly enhanced overall health with reduced swelling and pain reduction.

Red and Near Infrared Light Therapy is now available in Cuenca at Light & Touch therapy Clinic.”
