- REDUCES INFLAMMATION – When injury or illness triggers the immune response, NIR light therapy resets the mitochondria so they can function normally again. It does this by triggering the cells to make anti-inflammatory proteins that will speed healing, while turning on antioxidant and energy-boosting genes.
- REJUVENATES SKIN – Reduces visible signs of aging. DNA Synthesis of fibroblasts, which affects the elasticity of skin, increase five-fold with NIR. The result is younger-looking, more beautiful skin.
- REDUCED VISIBLE CELLULITE – Cellulite is fat mixed with toxins that are trapped, in part due to an underactive circulatory system. Cellulite is so visible, in part due to weakened connective tissue. NIR helps rebuild connective tissue and has been shown to reduce cellulite.
- BOOSTS METABOLISM – The mitochondria (power plants of the cells) produce more ATP (energy currency of the cells) when NIR (near infrared rays) is introduced.
- REDUCES BODY FAT – A group of 20 women riding stationary bicycles 3 times per week for 4 weeks exposed to NIR lost an average of 8 cm’s or 444% more as compared to 20 women doing the same exercise without NIR.
- INCREASED ENERGY – NIR activates the color sensitive chemicals (chromophores & cytochrome systems) to depths of 23 centimeters (or about 10 inches), stimulating the energy processes in cells.
- IMPROVED CIRCULATION TO THE MUSCLES – NIR causes the release of nitric oxide. This stimulates vasodilatation of the microcirculatory system, bringing more blood to the muscles.
- BETTER ENDURANCE – Muscle fatigue was reduced by up to 42.2% when exposing muscle to NIR.
- INCREASED STRENGTH – Growth hormone release is induced by an increase in body temperature and not by exercise itself. Growth hormone increases muscle mass, calcium retention, and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat).
- FASTER RECOVERY TIME – Certain tissue regenerating genes including integrins, laminin, gap junction proteins and kinesin proteins have shown a two- to five-fold increase upon exposure to NIR.
- WORKOUT IN LESS TIME – Due to increased production of ATP and quick dilation of the microcirculatory system, a person can lessen warm-up time and work at a higher level of exertion without increasing blood pressure.
- DETOXIFY THE BODY – Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Sweat is the only way to remove certain carcinogenic PCBs, dioxins, phthalates, and volatile organic
- LESSENS JOINT AND MUSCLE PAIN & INCREASES FLEXIBILITY – Penetrating heat from NIR has long been proven to reduce pain and increase circulation to areas of discomfort. NIR has also been shown to significantly increase the range of flexibility.

The groundwork for Urban Wellness began when I (Terri Carrigan) was diagnosed with Lyme Disease a few years ago. After hours and hours of research, as well as trial and error (and spending too much money before we discovered what does work), We finally have a plan that has worked very well for me.
We started out by setting aside one room for me at the gym (Urban Survival Fitness & Wellness). We designed and equipped it to be conducive to healing with a RIFE Frequency Machine and an Ionic Detox Foot Bath– it was essentially for my personal use – a Sanctuary for my healing.
Through our extensive research we discovered a number of people who were experiencing amazing results from all kinds of chronic illness through Near Infrared (NIR) Light Therapy. The cost of going to a Med Spa was not only prohibitive, after learning everything we could about light therapy, and the different modalities, and months more research, we realized that not everyone had the correct wavelengths, or nanometers and few could really answer the questions that were important to us. So, Jeffrey decided to build the perfect NIR Therapy Room at the Urban Survival Fitness & Wellness. This too was for my personal use and I experienced amazing results. Now that I am in good health, we have decided we want to share the treatments with others who will benefit.
