Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, is a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses medical grade LED lights to deliver concentrated and specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to promote healing at the cellular level. The cells in our bodies are able to absorb these specific wavelengths of light and use them to promote the production of ATP, an important molecule which helps our cells produce more energy. When our cells have more energy they can repair, rejuvenate and efficiently and effectively perform their specific functions, which leads to the numerous health benefits of red and near-infrared light therapy. Just like food and water, light is a nutrient that our bodies require to heal, sustain and energize us. The intelligent body knows exactly how to convert this energy into what it needs in order to optimize and thrive.
Red light therapy can be a valuable tool in achieving your health and wellness goals. There are literally thousands of clinical studies which demonstrate its safe and effective benefits which include:
Red light therapy is a powerful technology that delivers the naturally occurring wavelengths of red and near infrared light to optimize bodily functions. Our cells get an energy boost when they absorb natural light, especially red wavelengths at 660 nm and near infrared wavelengths at 850 nm which are the most bioavailable to humans. These wavelengths of light are absorbed by the energy centers of the cell called the mitochondria. Every single cell in your body has mitochondria, and when the mitochondria are given the proper resources it can heal the cell and restore balance and health in the body. Utilizing our high quality, medical grade LED devices, we can enhance this process so that your cells have more energy, function more efficiently, rejuvenate faster, and repair cellular damage without the harmful effects of UV rays or excess heat. Clinical research has found that this recharging of cells leads to reduced inflammation and oxidative stress, faster tissue recovery, better sleep and mood, increased collagen production and a multitude of natural health benefits.
Research has shown Red Light Therapy to be a very safe and non-invasive treatment. That said, treatment may not be appropriate for the following conditions: pregnancy, epilepsy, active cancer lesions, fever/infection, recent skin burns, hyperthyroidism, and anyone taking photosensitive medications.
Reduced pain levels for acute or chronic conditions, recovery time post injury or workout, improvements in texture and appearance of skin and scars, quality of sleep and energy levels throughout the day are all good markers to track success. Best result are achieved with 10-15 minute sessions 2-3x/week.
For optimal results, wear nothing! Delivering light to more surface area of your body leads to better light therapy outcomes, but being fully disrobed is not required for effective use. Lighter garments (swimsuits, underwear and socks) may be worn without hampering a treatment, though the covered areas not directly exposed to the light won’t receive full benefits. You can sit, stand or lie down in a private red light treatment room.
The wavelengths of red and near-infrared light are actually healthy for your eyes, however you should never stare directly into the light panel. We recommend closing your eyes and meditating, practicing breath work, dancing or just enjoying a relaxing bit of quiet time. Protective glasses are available if you prefer to use them.
