Heal The Body With Light

Welcome to the Future of Medicine with Discovery Health Healing Center (DHHC) and THOR Laser Therapy! DHHC specializes in Restorative Medicine with the utilization of PhotoBioModulation aka InfraRed Light Therapy. Medical grade (not cosmetic) THOR Laser, the newest NEAR INFRARED light laser technology that is proven to significantly increase athletic performance and endurance, relieve pain, resolve inflammation, and promote faster healing of injury.

problems InfraRed Light Therapy can fix

Tissue Repair

It is a medical-grade, monochromatic light that removes dangerous radicals bound within your mitochondria. (Cytochrome C is inhibited by the binding of Nitric Oxide. The light breaks this bond)


By removing radicals, infrared light therapy allows your cells to start making energy efficiently and reduce inflammation. (Cytochrome C is meant to transport electrons in energy production.)

Pain Relief

The improved function of your cells enables them to start repairing the damage. (Your cells need energy to function, so optimal energy production is essential to reparative processes.)

Injury Healing

The faster the inflammation is reduced and the reparative process can begin, the quicker your injuries will heal. 

"[Achieve] drug-free pain relief and better healing through best-in-class photomedicine products and services."

- James Carroll, THOR Photomedicine CEO

How does infraRed Light Therapy work?

Video Transcript

This is a normal cell. Cytochrome C Oxidase, the terminal enzyme in the electron transport chain, is combining oxygen with NADH to make the hydrogen ions that drive ATP Synthase. But, something goes wrong when we get sick, injured, stressed, or just old: the mitochondria starts to make nitric oxide. The nitric oxide competes with oxygen; it binds to cytochrome c oxidase and competitively displaces the oxygen. This stops the production of ATP and increases oxidative stress. Oxidative stress leads to inflammation and cell death for the gene transcription factor NF-kappa-B known as the master switch for inflammation. Low level laser and led therapy break the bond between nitric oxide and cytochrome c oxidase allowing oxygen to combine with NADH, so that ATP can be produced and the oxidative stress to be abolished. Now the cell can get on with doing its job of regenerating tissues, fighting infection, or whatever it's programmed to do.

What is PBM?

Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy) previously known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a laser or LED light therapy that improves tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduces inflammation and reduces pain wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor, therapist or technician, treatments typically take 1 - 10 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week. Pubmed refs

How does is PBM Work?

PBM works predominately on a protein in mitochondria (cytochrome c oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. A cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects lead to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation. Pubmed refs

How much is enough, how much is too much?

  • There is a dose response: not enough power density and there is no effect, too much and there can be inhibitory effects which can slow down healing and lose the anti-inflammatory effects. Pubmed refs

The Analgesic Mechanism

This depends on an PBM overdose; Higher power density PBM >300mW/cm² reduces ATP production in C fibers and A delta fibers resulting in an immediate neural blockade lasting up to approximate 24 hr. Pubmed refs

So there are actually TWO kinds of PBM ?

Yes, high power density is necessary for analgesia and deep tissue targets, low power density (< 100mW/cm²) is necessary to promote healing and reduce inflammation in superficial wounds, tendons and joints (the target is the synovia not the joint). THOR do both high and low power density for best healing, deep penetration and analgesia. Read more about class IV lasers, 3B lasers, LEDs and dose here
