NEAR INFRARED THERAPY
Near-Infrared Therapy (NIR) enhances cell function and the function of the extracellular matrix in many different ways. NIR is widely used as a cosmetic treatment for regenerating collagen and elastin under the skin. Collagen and elastin are primary constituents of the connective tissue matrix which underly both posture and movement. NIR is very inexpensive to set up and use. In the context of this web page, it is primarily recommended for use on the gut. However, it is very healing for any part of our bodies and safe to use on the head (protect the eyes).
