Bioflex Laser therapy has been scientifically proven** to speed up the healing process, which in cases of sudden onset injuries, i.e. (not limited to) Whiplash, sprained ankle, scar from a recent knee replacement surgery or chronic re-occurrences i.e. (not limited to) inflammation/pain from osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease. If left to natural healing, the time it takes for these issues to resolve turn into longer, agonizing healing time frame, in addition compensating muscles and other issues such as increased pain, stiffness, swelling and putting more stress and strain on the body, increasing that healing time frame, which currently, who has the time OR energy for this?
Official definition found on Bioflex Laser website:
Laser therapy is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode (250 milliwatts or less) or an array of high intensity super-luminous diodes (providing total optical power up to the 2000-milliwatt range) to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons.
These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function
The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain. Conditions treated include musculoskeletal problems, the arthritides, sports injuries and dermatological conditions. The light source is placed in contact with the tissues allowing the photon energy to penetrate widely, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the normalization of cellular components. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes.
The Practice of Low-Level Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has only been used in the United States since 2002, although it has been used widely in Europe and Asia for the past several decades. I admit to being biased—originally against it, and now energetically in favor of more widespread use of this valuable technology. Insurance companies are very short-sighted in refusing to pay for this therapy; it is less costly, safer, and allows for a more “complete” treatment of chronic pain syndromes. **Read More
Bioflex laser emits 2 different lights through the array: first a red light (that gets absorbed by your skin and your red blood cells) and an infrared light (that penetrated deeper, which your white blood cells, lymphatic system, muscles and tendons absorb that light. Through this Low Intensity Light Therapy (LILT), at the cellular level, your cell (the inflammation) absorbs the light in the mitochondria of the cell (the cell’s powerhouse) and converts it into energy (like Popeye and his spinach), your cells get a boost of energy which in turn helps it focus its energy to help heal. Since your cell now has a boost of energy, it can focus on the job it was designed to do (healing: moving the inflammation out faster which in turn prevents your secondary structures from even getting involved in the “muscle guarding” stage (this is the stage where the area above/below the injured site, muscles will contract to attempt to help keep the injured site protected)
Bioflex Laser Therapy treats a variety of issues:
For sudden onset of injury, like ankle sprain, plantar fasciitis, muscle tears, disc herniations; or Chronic injuries, like arthritis, old sport injuries, low back pain.
The Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) improves and gives your body the energy it needs to focus it’s healing on multiple pathologies in the shortest possible period of time while achieving the following goals:
- Absence of pain.
- Eliminate the need for drugs.
- Restoration of mobility (normal range of motion).
- Improve quality of life (activity levels, sleep, etc.)
- Reduce the need for surgical intervention.

BIOFLEX WAVE NANO is a portable, wearable red-light therapy (also known as photobiomodulation therapy or PBMT) device that emits read and near infrared wavelengths.
BIOFLEX WAVE NANO utilizes visible red (660 nm) and invisible near infrared (NIR 850nm) wavelengths known to have beneficial health effects. Red light is absorbed superficially and helps promote skin rejuvenation and general well-being of superficial muscles and joints. Near infrared light penetrates deeper in the body promoting deeper skin rejuvenation, collagen production and general well-being of deeper muscles and joints. PBM wellness effects can only occur when the light is directly absorbed by the skin.
Difference between Biowave Nano and Bioflex laser
Both emit same wavelength ranges. The difference is in the power frequencies*: The nano emits a max power frequency of 50-60HZ, where the Bioflex laser emits up to 25,000HZ.
Biowave nano is a personal at home device, for the average person to safely treat minor issues such as minor muscle strains, mild inflammation, and can also be used for minor skin irritations. The Bioflex Laser is a medical grade device to help your body naturally heal at a more rapid time frame. Neither one of these replaces a Dr prescription, diagnoses, etc. Laser Therapy is designed to give your body the tools to help promote natural healing, reducing pain and helping recover in a more timely manner.
*The laser beam is not a steady stream of energy. Instead, the laser emits light in pulses at regular intervals. Frequency determines the rate of the pulses. As frequency decreases, the number of pulses decreases, but the energy output per pulse increases.
Why is this device being sold at East Mountain Massage?
For those in-between laser treatments, for mild flare ups. This is not to replace the Bioflex laser therapy, only to help those minor bouts of inflammation.

Sonny M. Start August 18, 2023 and After last treatment August 29, 2023
Lisa T. Laser started next day after surgery, 6 laser treatments over 6 weeks. After picture 3 months later.
This was month 3, showing her knee after treatments.
Lisa said, after 3 months, her knee (right) looked like her first replacement (left) looked after 1 year
Linda O. Bruise that developed over 2 weeks.
Laser started, 3 laser treatments
