What is NovoTHOR®?
NovoTHOR® is a whole-body red-light therapy bed that uses red and near-infrared light to treat injuries, reduce pain, relax muscles/joints, and increase blood circulation.
What is red light therapy?
Red light therapy is a treatment that uses 660nm visible red light and 850nm near-infrared light that can be used for many conditions of the human body. These wavelengths activate several biological processes that are perceived to be good for health.
Is the term used for how both visible red and near-infrared helps the body heal and relieve pain. infrared light is invisible to the naked eye, but our bodies can feel the energy as warmth or heat. Red light is like infrared; however, it is visible. When our bodies encounter these forms of light therapy, this increases the energy center of the cell enhancing cellular respiration in the mitochondria which activates Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This cellular energy production via PBM therapy facilitates a healing & regenerative response by the body. ATP synthesized in the mitochondria is the primary energy source for intrinsic biological functions, such as muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and protein synthesis. This can result in improved energy, wellness and sense of wellbeing.
Pharmaceutical medicine covers up pain by interfering with chemical signals. As we become more aware of the long-term effects caused by the extensive use of pharmaceutical drugs and how it is a poor solution for chronic pain, people have been turning to NovoTHOR® as a solution for managing their pain without the use of NSAIDs or opioids – with life changing results. NovoTHOR® relaxes and redevelops muscles – relieving the pain at the source, instead of just hiding it.
What are the benefits of using a NovoTHOR®?
NovoTHOR® increases muscle performance, treats muscles, and joints, and increases blood flow – making more oxygen available. This allows athletes to work out harder and recover quicker. In clinical studies athletes using PBM generated 38% more force on average than placebo. Exercised longer – competitive cyclists increased the average time they could exercise by 19% before reaching exhaustion withy the benefit of 42% less Delayed onset muscles soreness (DOMS) post workout. Relaxation with improved energy and better sleep is the common reported anecdotal evidence from many patients receiving NovoTHOR® treatment along with pain reduction, improved healing of injuries, muscle relaxation, increasing blood circulation, helps tighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and acne.
How long does each session take and how often can it be used?
Each session is between 12-15 minutes. It can be repeated daily or 2-3 times per week until health goals are met, then a maintenance program can be utilized once per week or two. Then on an as needed basis to improve wellness and recovery.
How soon will I notice a difference?
Everyone’s experience is different; however, most people notice results from the first session or a few hours after the first session others can feel 1-2 days after. If the latter is relevant a few treatments may be necessary to get your body attuned to this therapy.
Science not Magic – Is there evidence that NovoTHOR is beneficial?
Yes. Red light therapy has been deeply studied in. PBM can upregulate antioxidant defenses and reduce oxidative stress, truly making this a regenerative medicine. PBM is widely used in biomedicine to treat inflammation, pain, tissue, and nerve regeneration. A highly effective non-invasive treatment with no known side effects. With over 500 human trials and 4,000 lab studies THOR® has been the leader in the field of photobiomodulation since 1991 and has contributed to over 51 academic papers, collaborated with 6 Harvard Medical research groups and 30 other universities globally and used in Doctors clinics all over the world.
Who uses NovoTHOR®?
US Special Forces use NovoTHOR® for enhancing soldier readiness as a component of training as it helps with reducing injuries and allows soldiers to train at higher levels and recover quicker. Professional athletes, Olympians, major sporting teams & celebrities have all reaped rewards of using this therapeutic device.
Now it is available for your convenience at Acupuncture Zen®.
