BodyLab has added on a “biohacking” service. The credit for this goes to Dave Asprey and his Bulletproof website (www.bulletproofexec.com) for sharing knowledge about this with the rest of the world. He defines biohacking as “changing your environment from the inside-out so you have full control of your biology; using your body as your personal laboratory, finding the exact hacks that work for you.” So with that in mind we have been building up a few extra tools.
Light Therapy (Auckland and Wellington)
Light therapy involves the use of a device that emits optimal Red and Near Infrared light within a certain range of therapeutic wavelengths and intensity. Red and Near Infrared wavelengths react with cellular mitochondria to increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. In turn, increased ATP production can lead to faster production of collagen, vascular structures, DNA, RNA and other materials that are essential to the body’s healing process. Red and Near Infrared therapy can speed up muscle recovery and soft tissue healing, decrease pain and reduce joint inflammation, enhance blood circulation and athletic performance as well as mental clarity, relaxation and sleep.

Kacelia Tru-Align Body System (Wellington only)
The Kacelia Tru-Align Body System is the first of its kind holistic, self-care treatment system. It works by specifically engineered cushions that support the body at key points allowing gravity to exert a downward pressure restoring the spinal curves and good posture. Using the Tru-Align decompresses limbers, reshapes and encouraged alignment of the jaw occipital, neck spiral, shoulder sacroiliacs and hip joints. It has been clinically proven to alleviate pain and stiffness of the groin, sacra-iliac, neck, shoulder, jaw, upper, mid and lower back. It also reduces or resolves headaches, sinus pressure, pinched nerves, disc problems, sciatica, depression, low energy, trouble sleeping and pregnancy discomforts.
