Infrared Light Therapy
Umbrakinesis is the psychical influence of the electromagnetic spectrum including visible light and part of the near-infrared range. Umbrakinetic-based influence includes any form of electromagnetic radiation capable of causing a direct visual sensation directly within wavelengths of 380-950 nanometers whether wavelengths are pure or mixed.
In most cases, infrared wavelengths (650-900nm) are able to penetrate deeper than visible red (600-649nm).
In this case, visible light is partially absorbed by naturally abundant fluorochromes, including hemoglobin, while light in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum are partially absorbed by water, though greater tissue penetration is found in the near-infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum in the range of 700-800nm.
In regards to biophotonic therapies involving the experient influencing the biophotons of their client, rather than themselves, these penetration laws do not apply as the influence is targeted within the area requiring healing.
Umbrakinetic-based light therapy is very beneficial because it has the ability to promote and enhance healing, not just treat symptoms.
Infrared light therapy has been shown to trigger the release of nitric oxide, a small endogenous molecule with multiple effects on body systems including fracture healing, when applied to body tissues. Nitric oxide effects also include promoting blood flow to tissues and reducing inflammation and pain.
