(Red Light & Infrared Therapy Pod)

Photobiomodulation (PBM)

Project RUP Novothor Red Light Therapy


NovoTHOR® is a whole body red light and infrared therapy pod that uses red and near-infrared light (also known as Photobiomodulation or PBM for short) to treat injuries, reduce pain, relax muscles/joints, and increase blood circulation. It’s used by pioneering doctors, clinics, and sports teams around the world.

NovoTHOR® is the professional device of choice for professional sports teams (Toronto Raptors, Golden State Warriors), Olympic athletes, and the US Special Forces.

Why NovoTHOR?

Relieve Sources of Pain

Drugs cover pain up by interfering with chemical signals. NovoTHOR® actually treats the source of the pain, relieving muscular and joint pain.

Improve performance

NovoTHOR improves muscle performance, improving the effectiveness of your workout or helping you hit levels you’ve never reached before.

Stay on Your Feet

Whether it’s an injury or a workout, NovoTHOR® can redevelop muscles, relax them, and improve their blood flow, helping you get back on your feet, faster.


NovoTHOR® treats the whole body, from your head to your toes, all at once in less than 15 minutes. It’s relaxing and will leave you feeling better than ever.

    How does PBM work?

    Photobiomodulation (PBM) works by using low-level light therapy to stimulate cellular processes and promote tissue healing and regeneration. When the light penetrates the skin and reaches the cells, it activates certain biological mechanisms, including increasing the production of ATP (the main energy source for cells), reducing inflammation, and promoting the release of growth factors. These processes can help improve cellular function and tissue repair, leading to a range of potential therapeutic benefits for conditions such as pain, inflammation, and wound healing.

    What is Red Light Therapy used for?

    Red light therapy or PBM is used to treat injuries, reduce pain, relax muscles and joints, and increase circulation.

    PBM is typically used by doctors, physical therapists, and pain clinics as a highly effective and non-invasive treatment with no known side effects. It also used by professional athletes to improve performance and reduce the risk of injuries.

    How long does a treatment take?

    The average treatment lasts between 12–15 minutes, but can last up to 20 minutes.

    Is PBM for everyone?

    NovoTHOR® is generally safe for most people, except for pregnant women, anyone with light sensitivity or carcinoma.

    It may also be safely used over metal implants, plastics and stitches and on patients fitted with a pacemaker.

    It is always best to book a consultation to discuss any health conditions or concerns.

    Does NovoTHOR® only treat certain areas?

    No, the NovoTHOR® Pod is a whole body treatment. So if you have multiple areas that need treating, the pod can do this all at the same time.

    How often can you have NovoTHOR® treatments?

    There are no rules as to how many treatments you can have. The only stipulation is a maximum of one treatment in a 24 hour period.

    How many treatments will I need?
    This depends on the severity of the condition or injury.
    In general, acute injuries such as sprains, and abrasions can be resolved within 2-4 treatments. However long-term or chronic conditions may need up to 10 treatments to show significant benefits.
    Are there any side effects?

    No, NovoTHOR® is a non-invasive treatment with no side effects, unlike some prescription or over the counter drugs used to treat the source of the pain.

    Some of the healthiest populations in the world live where the sun is able to deliver consistently higher levels of red and near infrared light to the body.  This may explain why those who live in the Mediterranean have good general health (along with a healthy diet!).

    What do I wear during my treatment?

    It is recommended that you be fully undressed during a treatment, or minimally dressed (underwear, swimsuit, etc). Treatment is enhanced by exposing as much skin to the light therapy as possible.
