Celluma by BioPhotas, an Overview
Celluma is a form of light therapy that emits photons which are absorbed in the mitochondria and cell membranes resulting in biochemical & cellular changes. Benefits of Celluma include:
- Arthritis pain relief
- Muscle spasm
- Muscle and joint pain
- Muscle tissue tension
- Joint and muscle stiffness
- Diminished local circulation
- Post-surgical healing
You may have heard of the terms biophotonic or low-level light therapy. Both terms synonymously are used to describe the delivery of light energy to treat a variety of medical conditions.
So what is low-level light therapy?
It’s the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy delivered is then used to improve cellular performance. Low-level light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LED) devices or cold lasers, and has a variety of applications.
The treatment is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time, and can be used on all skin types.
Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on a long-term space flight, the technology is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as acne, anti-aging, and pain. NASA studies concluded that gravity is necessary for normal cell growth, noting, “wounds heal less effectively in space than here on Earth.”
In response to this significant health risk, NASA developed light emitting diode (LED) technology that showed great promise for delivering light deep into tissues of the body to promote wound healing and human tissue growth. “NASA’s LED device stimulates the basic energy process in the mitochondria (energy producing compartments) of each cell, particularly when near-infrared light is used to activate color sensitive chemicals (chromospheres, cytochrome systems) inside the cell.” NASA also reported that DNA synthesis in fibroblasts and muscle cells quadrupled when exposed to LED light.
