Brain Photobiomodulation (PBM) is an exciting new area of research showing tremendous promise for a wide range of conditions associated with brain dysfunction.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of light, which can penetrate the skull when applied with the right amount of power at a close distance. PBM is very safe, with no negative side effects or contraindications. Red and near-infrared light applied to tissue where there is degeneration or injury, has the ability to improve repair and reduce inflammation and pain, by stimulating mitochondria to produce more cellular energy (ATP).

There is a notable lack of therapeutic alternatives for what is fast becoming a global epidemic of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Photobiomodulation (PBM) can stimulate healing, protect tissue from dying, increase mitochondrial function, improve blood flow and tissue oxygenation, and many people are finally getting relief from symptoms that they have just “learned to deal with”.

“Near infrared light can penetrate quite deep into the body. So, if you shine it on your head, it will penetrate your skull and a lot of it is absorbed by your brain. Once you understand this, it’s amazing to think of the various diseases of the brain that need regeneration and healing, which could potentially be treated with light therapy.”

At Performance Bodywork, we have THE most advanced Brain Photobiomodulation device in the world,
the Thor Light Helmet.

Ours is 1 of only 3 of these helmets available to the public in the United States, and only about 20 total have been produced worldwide. Most are being used in research facilities on NFL and Military veterans, as well as being used at US Military bases.
