How Does Infrared Light Therapy Work?
Nitric oxide is the key to the dramatic improvements that infrared light therapy provides. This short-lived gas is crucial to the health of your arteries. Infrared energy prompts the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the immediate vicinity. This boost in blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to injured, aching tissues, resulting in fast healing. It also reduces pain and inflammation.
