If you have questions, we have answers.
LIGHT THERAPY / PBM THERAPY (PBMT)
What is pbm therapy (pbmt)?
PBM Therapy, is the application of red and near-infrared light to the tissue where there is degeneration or injury, to improve, repair, and reduce inflammation and pain. This is achieved via PBM Therapy’s ability to reduce oxidative stress which is accepted as the underlying trigger for most diseases and degenerative conditions. Oxidative stress is also a component in the inflammatory phase of acute and chronic injuries.
Intended uses of PBM Therapy include:
• Restoration of motion to joints
• Improved muscle performance
• Decreased post-exercise soreness
• Adjunct to obesity as part of a diet and exercise program
How is it applied?
The AARC is a whole-body delivery system of PBM Therapy that has been designed to deliver optimal wavelengths, power densities, and dosages based on published clinical research outcomes. It's as simple as lying still in the light chamber for the predetermined length of time, similar to a tanning bed, except you will not get a tan. The advantage of the AARC is it works on the whole body in just 8-15 minutes. Regular sessions have been shown to contribute to the reduction of pain, improved muscle performance and reduction of muscle fatigue.
How many PBMT treatments are needed?
That depends on you. Every person’s condition is unique; therefore, their treatment course is as well. However, there are some general rules of thumb that apply to PBMT. Acute injuries and inflammation from muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, burns, etc. typically can show rapid improvement in 7-12 treatments. Long-term, chronic conditions can take longer.
How does photobiomodulation therapy compare with other conventional treatments?
Photobiomodulation Therapy is able to influence the problem directly at the cellular level, resulting in therapeutic benefits that are long-lasting and address the underlying condition. This is unlike any other conventional treatments, which only deal with the symptoms or site of pain, without addressing the source of pain. Working on a cellular level takes time and patience but the results are longer lasting without the risk of side effects. Please consult your physician before using light therapy.
What will I feel? Is it hot?
The lights themselves do not become warm; however, your circulation increases throughout the treatment, so you may experience a feeling of warmth. A quick energy boost or feeling of euphoria is also possible.
Are there any side effects?
No, treatment is non-toxic, non-invasive, and has no side effects. It is safe and effective for most people.
Are there any contraindications?
Treatment is NOT APPROPRIATE FOR THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS: pregnancy, epilepsy, active cancer lesions, and anyone taking photosensitive medications.
Is it safe for children to use the Light Therapy?
Clinical studies have shown light therapy to be safe and efficacious. However, if you’re considering using it with children, we recommend consulting with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.
High Intensity Laser Therapy
How does it work?
When the photons of laser light penetrate the skin, they are absorbed by the cells and converted
into energy. Energy is key to helping the cells become normal and healthy. A cascade of cellular
events is triggered once the cell membrane permeability is altered including:
• Stimulation of ATP
• Stimulation of respiratory chain
• Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
• Enhanced collagen synthesis
What advantage does laser therapy have over other forms of treatment?
A laser therapy treatment does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. Unlike many therapy products that only treat the symptoms and mask the pain temporarily, the therapy laser is able to treat the cause of the pain and injury, helping the body to heal itself.
In addition, Laser therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality. Each laser therapy treatment will:
• Decrease inflammation
• Decreased muscle tightness and soreness
• Decrease pain
• Increase range of motion and movement
• Increase faster recovery and healing
How are laser therapy treatments administered?
Treatments are performed by positioning the laser handpiece either directly on the skin or approximately ½” above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam. Various areas may be treated including:
Directly over the site of injury or lesion
Trigger points or tender points
Nerve roots or superficial nerve trucks
How long will the laser therapy treatment take?
Depending on the condition, treatment times for this drug-free, non-invasive procedure will last on average 15–30 minutes but is based on the size of area, depth of penetration needed, and condition being treated.
Are there any safety precautions required?
Because the human eyes absorb light, specially designed protective safety eye-wear is required and is provided for both the person administering the laser treatment and the patient to wear during the laser therapy treatment.
How many treatments are needed?
Laser therapy produces results quickly, with improvement often within the first treatment. For many acute conditions 5 – 6 treatments are needed. Chronic conditions take longer and might require 6 – 12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with lifelong conditions you may be recommended periodic follow-up treatments.
Can laser therapy be used with other treatments?
Laser therapy can be used as a single therapy treatment, or as an adjunctive therapy in combination with other manual therapies such as chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, or with devices including cryotherapy, whole-body light therapy, and infrared sauna.
INFRARED SAUNA Therapy
What is infrared light?
Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum that our bodies use to heal and repair. They are the healthiest rays, with the ability to penetrate into the skin deeply as they dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body and provide lasting relaxation. Far infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.
What physical issues do saunas help with?
The detoxification that occurs in a sauna has been known to help with conditions such as colitis, chronic fatigue, auto-immune diseases, autism, ADD, ADHD, and fibromyalgia to name a few.
Can I sauna with a friend?
Absolutely! Our Infrared Sauna accommodates up to 4 people, and we charge individually per person using the sauna. Please note that our online system cannot make reservations for more than one person in a sauna, so please call us to schedule this type of appointment.
What should I do while in the infrared sauna?
We encourage using your time in the sauna as a moment to relax and meditate and allow the infrared heat to melt away any stress or fatigue you may be experiencing. If this is not appealing to you, then the options are endless! You can bring a book, magazine, or even your phone or tablet into the sauna to pass the time.
Is it safe for children?
The sauna can be a very beneficial experience for children. It can be good for their physical, as well as their mental health. Children 6 years and up can enjoy the sauna for a short period of time and a parent will have to join as they can’t be left alone. 10 to 15 minutes is the amount deemed safe, longer use is not advisable. This recommend amount of time in due to the fact a child’s body cannot adjust to high temperatures as efficiently or as quickly as an adult.
We recommend you consult your child’s physician before beginning infrared sauna heat therapy.
Is infrared sauna safe from EMFs?
EMFs are like invisible energy emissions that come from any object that uses electricity. Most common electrical objects give off such low levels of EMF that they pose no risk to humans.Though infrared saunas are large and powered by electricity, the technology used in our infrared sauna keeps EMF in an extremely low range of 0.2 to 0.3 mG.
Will the infrared sauna help me lose weight?
It has been shown in research that a 30-minute session in an Infrared Sauna will cause a person to burn 500-800 calories. This is equivalent to running 3-5 miles. Much of the weight that is lost directly in the sauna is water weight, which needs to be replenished with fresh water, but the calories that are burned will not be replenished with water and serve to increase a body’s metabolism. This increase in metabolism has many effects that help weight loss including increasing digestion function which efficiently converts the food you eat into energy.
How will I feel after and what should I do for best results?
Think of how you feel right after a workout and that’s probably the feeling you’ll have right after your sauna session. But within 30 minutes, you’ll experience a boost in energy and mood resulting in a productive afternoon and restful night’s sleep.
BioEnergetiX WellNES System
What is the NES SCANNER and how does it work?
The scanner takes a complete assessment of your body-field in just seconds and sends it to our bioenergetic health practitioner. All from the comfort of your home or anywhere else you are. Based on decades of clinical research and practical testing, our scan assessments quickly answer these questions (and more):
How well is your body-field powered?
Is your body-field transferring information correctly?
Is your body-field doing what’s needed to promote healing?
While it’s not a medical diagnostic system, most are astounded by the connections it makes to the health challenges they know they have.
What does NES Health BioEnergetix Scan Identify?
1. Energy-field imbalances and distortions: Your comprehensive scan will identify energy distortions in the human body-field that relate to specific health concerns, both physical and emotional.
2. Individualized Healing Protocols: The scan determines your specific corrective Bio- Energetic healing protocol, based on the unique make-up of your human body field.
3. Nutritional issues: The scan report will identify current challenges in the body's ability to absorb and metabolize certain nutrients and determine possible food sensitivities.
4. Environmental toxins and sensitivities: a NES Health scan determines what environmental factors, toxic metals, chemicals, and EMF's you have been exposed to and the body’s ability to handle them.
5. Emotional issues and Life purpose alignment: Identifies negative emotional states and beliefs correlating with past shocks and traumas that negatively impact your emotional wellbeing and physical health.
What is NES miHealth?
The NES miHealth is a powerful hand-held biofeedback device that is non-invasive and effective for reducing stress, releasing and re-educating energy flow, muscles, nerves, organs and areas of the body. As stress is released, energy can flow properly and the body’s innate healing intelligence can revert back to its original, optimal state. As part of our treatment sessions we use the miHealth device during a client session in our center to release any blockages or trigger points identified during the body-field scan.
How does NES miHealth work?.
miHealth helps to re-train your body's own healing system by communicating specifically with the parts of the body with which it is in contact (on or off-body). The device does this primarily by sending ultra-weak electrical signals (or via PEMF when used off-body) to the spot it is in contact with and then “listens” to the body’s response from those signals. Biofeedback therapy is known to help reduce stress and re-educate parts of the body and mind to healthier patterns which can lead to a better quality of life.
What are Infoceuticals?
Infoceuticals are mineral-based supplements that have been imprinted with information designed to support the correction function of the human body-field. The body-field, in turn, instructs the body’s chemistry, supporting the body’s natural healing and wellness processes. You can learn more on our Infoceutical page.
Are there Infoceuticals I can take without a scan?
We recommend that you follow our system’s recommendations and discuss your personalized Infoceutical plan with your Energy4Life practitioner. But beyond your personalized Infoceutical plan, or without a scan, you may also try our range of “Feel Good” Infoceuticals, which target specific goals such as more energy, better sleep, improved mood, or cold and flu season support. These can be taken without a specific recommendation from your practitioner or without a scan.
Are Infoceuticals safe?
Infoceuticals have proven themselves to be extraordinarily safe over the years. They do not stimulate or challenge the body with herbs, nutrients, or medications, but instead optimize the energy and information of the body-field.
Who should NOT take Infoceuticals?
If you have had an organ transplant, you should not take Infoceuticals. Patients with organ transplants are often prescribed drugs to suppress the immune system to prevent organ rejection. Infoceuticals work to correct your energy field to boost immunity. Infoceuticals have otherwise proven very safe although, as with any supplement, care should be taken with children and pregnant or nursing women, and anyone with medical questions about taking a supplement should seek appropriate medical advice.
