Red Light Therapy

BENEFITS of RED LIGHT THERAPY

  • Increase Cellular Energy

  • Enhance Muscle Recovery

  • Improve Skin Health

  • Reduce Pain

  • Improve Sleep

Red light therapy works by using low-level red light to produce a biochemical effect in cells that strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell — it’s where the cell’s energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP(adenosine triphosphate).

By increasing the function of the mitochondria using RLT, a cell can make more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.

Improving ATP production, by increasing energy which speeds up the recovery process in wounds, aids in speeding up the healing process in chronic skin issues including acne and eczema, helps reduce muscle soreness and inflammation in joints.

  • Can red light therapy damage the eyes?
    Yes, Red light therapy is a safe, natural way to protect your vision and heal your eyes from damage and strain. Wavelengths of both red light and near-infrared light have been tested in multiple clinical trials and found to be safe and effective for ocular health and vision protection.
  • Is red light therapy safe during pregnancy?
    Red Light Therapy is proven harmless during pregnancy. However, we recommend checking with your doctor before starting a session during pregnancy.
