Understanding Sound: Frequency, Hearing, and the Nature of Sound Waves

What is Sound? Sound is a type of energy that travels through the air (or other mediums) as waves. These waves are created by vibrating objects and are detected by our ears. Sound can vary in pitch, loudness, and quality, depending on the characteristics of these waves. What is Frequency? Frequency is the number of waves that pass a point in one second, measured in Hertz (Hz). It determines the pitch of a[...]

The Science: How LED Light Therapy Works

Ever wonder why it's mentioned to "get some sun" to increase Vitamin D?.... or ever see when a baby is born with jaundice, why they put them under blue light? This is Photobiomodulation (PBM) at work! PBM or light therapy is basically the ability of certain light wavelengths (color) to penetrate certain levels of your body to trigger reactions that promote better health and wellness. One well known reaction of light therapy is[...]

Understanding Vasodilation: The Key to Enhanced Healing and How Red Light Therapy Can Help

Table of Contents What is Vasodilation? Vasodilation refers to the physiological process in which blood vessels widen to increase blood flow. This occurs when the smooth muscles in the vessel walls relax, allowing the vessel to expand. Vasodilation is a crucial bodily response that facilitates increased blood flow to tissues that need more oxygen and nutrients, especially during times of stress, exercise, or healing. The Role of Vasodilation in Healing[...]
