Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the use of Near-Infrared Light to influence biological functioning. It uses wavelengths of light just outside the human visible range to stimulate blood flow and change the chemical energy inside cells.
Several major institutions, including the US Veterans Affairs and Boston University School of Medicine use PBM neurotechnology for research.

What is Brain Photobiomodulation?
The nerves in your brain can be improved by delivering light energy of specific wavelengths onto them! This process is called photobiomodulation (PBM). Scientific research shows our brain cells respond to a band of light called near infrared (NIR) light.
What is NIR light energy?
Near infrared light (NIR) energy is part of the electromagnetic spectrum (see photo below) which are waves (or photons) of the electromagnetic field. It radiates through space and carries electromagnetic radiant energy. Several existing technologies depend on the ability of electromagnetic energy to penetrate solid objects, such as WiFi, mobile data, radar and navigation satellites.
How Does PBM Improve Cell Function?
Research suggests several mechanisms of action. Near infrared light (NIR) is absorbed by mitochondria and converted into ATP for cellular use. NIR creates cellular repair and healing through ROS oxidants. The process also releases nitric oxide, which helps to dilate the blood vessels and improve blood circulation.
Why near infrared light energy for PBM?
Near infrared light (NIR) has the maximum depth of penetration in tissue. The NIR range maximizes the absorption of photons by blood at the shorter wavelengths and by water at the longer wavelengths. NIR light energy also influences mitochondrial more than any other electromagnetic frequency.
