WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?
Red Light Therapy, also called Photobiomodulation, is a simple, non-invasive treatment that delivers red and near-infrared light to a person’s skin and cells. Think of it as food for your cells! It is energy that you cannot see, but your body can feel. Red Light Therapy is emerging as a new treatment option that is unique because it helps treat the cause, not just the symptom. Red Light Therapy is drug-free and pain-free and it repairs damaged cells. It does this by safely bringing energy into your cells that will stimulate your body’s own healing process. Dual wavelength of 630nm and 850nm are used for overall body healing.
WHAT CAN RED LIGHT THERAPY DO FOR ME?
Red Light Therapy works because healthy light intake is crucial and beneficial to our health. It is essential for our cellular function and energy production, just as much as we need water, sleep, and the nutrients from food. Since most of us do not get enough light in our daily lives because we spend so much time indoors, Red Light Therapy is an easy solution for getting more healthy light every day. Because dual wavelengths are used (630nm and 850nm), Red Light Therapy is good for a wide variety of things including, but not limited to, the below:
- Sports Rehab and Recovery: Accelerates healing of ligaments, tendons, muscles, stiffness & soreness
- Soothes Arthritis and Joint Pain: Improves Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and disc-degeneration
- Reduces Chronic Pain: Reduces inflammation, nerve damage and autoimmune conditions
- Wounds and Injury Healing: Accelerates healing of sprains, strains and post-surgical procedures
- Skin Conditions and Anti-Aging: Reduces wrinkles, improves skin tone and conditions
- Weight Loss / Body Contouring: shrink fat cells and lose inches
IS RED LIGHT THERAPY THE SAME AS AN INFRARED SAUNA?
NO! Red Light Therapy and Infrared Saunas are not the same. They emit entirely different wavelengths of light. The Infrared Saunas emit at 1000nm and up and this level will heat up your body which is why you sweat in a sauna. The biggest benefit of the sauna is sweating to detox your body as you sweat out the toxins. Our Red Light Therapy emits at both the 630nm and 850nm and these wavelengths DO NOT heat up your body to make you sweat. They penetrate deep within your tissue and cells for overall healing.
WHAT ABOUT A TANNING BED THAT WAS RETROFITTED FOR RED LIGHT? IS THAT THE SAME?
NO! Retrofitted tanning beds use fluorescent red LED’s and they only penetrate the skin layer. They do not emit light into your tissue for healing. These fluorescent LED’s can burn you and they are listed on the hazardous materials list. Our Red Light Therapy penetrates into muscles, deep tissue, tendons and your body’s cells.
