Scott Nelson is the impetus, power, and energy that set Joovv in motion. As head of commercialization, his ability to metabolize information quickly makes him an irreplaceable asset. The two words we would use to describe Scott are efficient and personable. Prior to cofounding Joovv, he spent his entire professional career in leadership positions with some of the largest medical device companies in the world, including Medtronic, Covidien, Boston Scientific, and C.R. Bard.

Why is Justin Strahan so special? Well, not just any man can take his wife's dream and make it a reality. Justin's affinity for process and extreme attention to detail is why we are lucky to have him as head of R&D. The two words we would use to describe Justin are intuitive and thorough. Prior to inventing and developing the Joovv, he spent his career as an engineer managing design and development teams.

Are you ready to learn about light magic?

Because today I’m sitting down with two of the co-founders of Joovv, Scott Nelson and Justin Strahan. Scott is a veteran in the MedTech industry and focusing on commercializing the first professional-grade, full-body red light therapy device designed for convenient in-home use. Justin is the inventor of the Joovv and head of R&D, coming up with all of the fantastic tech that makes Scott’s commercialization efforts possible.

If you’ve listened to the show before, you know that I love my red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation. When I feel tired, sick, or just a little out of it, I sit in front of the Joov Red Light Therapy device hanging on my door, and it just rejuvenates me.

The health and wellness community is usually focusing on what we put in our bodies, but light plays an incredibly significant role in our overall health – or dysfunction. We’re designed to spend the vast majority of time out in the sun and absorb red light every day. However, we’ve created lifestyles that keep us indoors soaking up fluorescent lights and blue screens, and it’s slowly killing us.

And this isn’t some crazy, out there concept. There are over 3000 published clinical papers on light therapy (over 200 being double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled), making it one of the most well-researched biohacks available to us.

It’s been possible to do red light therapy in spas and salons for a while, but going multiple times a week is inconvenient and expensive. And that’s really why the Joovv is such a powerful device: it allows you to get all of the benefits of red light without the cost or time required to make 4-5 appointments every week.

So do you want to create a new lifestyle that feeds your body what it craves? Are you looking for help with your skin problems, joint pain, inflammation, muscle recovery, or hormone health? Just want to stay up-to-date on all the greatest biohacking tech?

Then you have to learn more about the magic of Joovv.
