Get to the Light
with Photobiomodulation (Light Therapy)
Let MMD Wellness Group show you the benefits ......
Welcome to MMD Wellness Group
MMD Wellness Group is focused on bringing the latest innovations in wellness to clients across the United States. Working with exciting new technologies, backed by peer-reviewed science, our professionals employ a wide variety of natural and non-invasive techniques to improve wellness.
MMD Wellness Group is currently sponsoring and directing a revision of the study Photobiomodulation and Inflammation. This study is to develop evidence that Photobiomodulation reduces COVID-19 symptoms. Given this data we anticipate the FDA will give Photobiomodulation (the technology) an Emergency Use Authorization…which opens up our capacity to share this benefit as a legitimate claim. In addition to the benefits of increasing Nitric Oxide which has anti-viral capacity, Photobiomodulation as an anti-inflammatory becomes a potent therapeutic in our fight against COVID-19, an inflammatory illness.
PBM is an a valuable tool -- like washing hands and social distancing and wearing a mask…if you have lights – use them!
If you don’t have lights—get some!

Marcie Denton - MA., MEd., CLTI
Marcie comes to Light Therapy from the world of science education and research. With over 30 years as a science instructor and supervisor her transition to Light Therapy was a natural extension of her desire to provide knowledge and tools to enhance health and wellness.
She is board certified by the Board of Advance Natural Sciences as a Light Therapy Instructor and has been in private practice since Feb. 2014 but has actually been working and learning about Low Level Light Therapy for the last 10 years.
She brings a vast knowledge base about the technology but more importantly brings experience working with individuals with multiple and diverse concerns.

Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy) previously known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has a photochemical effect (like photosynthesis in plants). One of the main mechanisms of action occurs in the mitochondria (the cellular power plant inside every cell). The effect depend on the application of the correct wavelength and density of light, delivered to the target tissues for an appropriate period of time (typically between 30 - 60 seconds). Pulses can improve tissue repair and anti-inflammatory effect, analgesia is best achieved with a continuous beam.
TISSUE REPAIR AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECTS
The primary effect occurs when light is absorbed in cytochrome c oxidase a protein within the mitochondria.
When cells get stressed (perhaps due to disease, injury or ageing) the mitochondria produces nitric oxide (NO). This competitively displaces oxygen from cytochrome c oxidase consequently reducing ATP (an essential intracellular cellular energy and extracellular signalling molecule) and causing an over production reactive oxygen species (ROS) and leading to oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is well known to lead to inflammation an cell death via the gene transcription factor NF-Kb.
PBM of the correct wavelength and density, dissociates NO allowing oxygen back in, so ATP is restored and oxidative stress reduced. Once normal mitochondrial function is restored by PBM then cell metabolism is improves, and the patient gets better more quickly. https://www.thorlaser.com/LLLT/3B_vs_Class_IV_lase...

Marcie Denton has a wealth of knowledge to share…not just the science of Photobiomodulation but how to Use it…How to problem solve with a technology that is flexible, open ended and surprisingly simple.
Seminars & Events
MMD Wellness Group hosts and attends seminars and events to share in the latest in light therapy research, educate others, and keep on the forefront of the industry and science.
MMD Wellness Group is currently sponsoring and directing a human clinical trial to develop evidence that Photobiomodulation reduces inflammation.
For the practitioner who wants to move from novice to expert, coaching is a valuable asset. Refining our trade/craft sometimes is more subtle than just a knowledge base and requires “thinking aloud”.

Completed Study: Does Photobiomodulation Reduce Inflammation? Continuing and revised study Does Photobiomodulation reduce symptoms of COVID-19
MMD Wellness Group sponsored and directing a human study to develop evidence that Photobiomodulation reduces inflammation. Study data supports that hypothesis and is in alignment with numbeous double blind studies that add to the evidence that PBM is an anti inflammatory intervention. The question remains does PBM also reduce symptoms of COVID-19…we believe yes it does and given this data we anticipate the FDA will give Photobiomodulation (the technology) an Emergency Use Authorization…which opens up our capacity to share this benefit as a legitimate claim. In addition to the benefits of increasing Nitric Oxide which has anti-viral capacity, Photobiomodulation as an anti-inflammatory becomes a potent intervention in our fight against COVID-19, an inflammatory illness.
PBM is a therapeutic not just a prevention like washing hands and social distancing or wearing a mask…if you have lights – use them! If you don’t have lights—get some!
Participate in Our PBM Study on COVID-19
We're seeking qualified participants for non-invasive study about how light therapy may help reduce COVID-19 symptoms, especially inflammation and other symptoms caused by the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus.
