Advanced Photobiomodulation


What is Photobiomodulation or PBM?

It is a form of low-level light therapy that incorporates LEDs or lasers to deliver light within the visible and near-infrared spectrum to heal tissue in the body. Our center specializes in using Photobiomodulation to treat various psychological conditions. Photobiomodulation uses photons of light to enhance the functions of neurons and glial cells. The primary mechanism of Photobiomodulation is through an increase in the production of a molecule called ATP.

ATP fuels the cells in the human body and is essential for them to perform their function. Additionally, Photobiomodulation decreases inflammation, combats oxidative damage to cells, improves blood flow to the brain, stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, reduces damage to neurons, prevents mechanisms that lead to cell death, stimulates stem cells, decreases the formation of toxins and increases neuroplasticity.

Is Photobiomodulation safe?

Photobiomodulation is non-invasive and safe. Evidence has shown no side effects.

In what situations can we use Photobiomodulation?

Photobiomodulation has been proven to be effective in treating Major Depressive Disorder, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions), and Stroke.  Additionally, it can be used to improve mood, enhance cognition, improve sleep quality and duration, improve short-term and long-term memory, decrease systemic inflammation, prevent age-related gliosis, enhance the longevity of neurons, reduce anxiety, increase pain tolerance, improve functional connectivity of major brain networks and more.

What is the treatment like?

The duration of treatment is between four and ten minutes on average. We use a device that is similar to a helmet and worn on top of the head to efficiently deliver light therapy to the brain. Clients are seated comfortably while receiving treatment, and most perceive a mild sensation of warmth over the scalp. The procedure is gentle, quiet, well-tolerated, and effective.
