What Is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy is an alternative therapy that has been used by NASA, the U.S. Navy, on deep sea submarine voyages, physicians, dermatologists, and more to treat a multitude of conditions. From pain relief to healing, skin rejuvenation to acne, and rosacea to pet pain relief. It’s a healing therapy that profoundly affects lives.

Red LEDs (light emitting diodes) have powerful properties that are easily absorbed into the body and accepted at a deep cellular level. As the wavelengths penetrate into the skin, tissue, joints, and bones the lights permeate the cells and ignite a plethora of responses including an increase in collagen and elastin production, an increase in cellular energy, activating the production of endorphins, blocking pain transmitting neurons, and prompting healing and reparative processes.

Countless studies have been performed proving the efficacy of this ultra powerful technology. Scientists, NASA, universities, and medical institutions have been researching LED light therapy and its benefits for over 40 years. Through this research they have discovered that some cells exposed to LEDs may grow 150-200 percent faster. These lights increase energy within the cells speeding up the healing process.

Research shows that red and infrared LEDs deliver intense therapeutic benefits to living tissue. Red and infrared LEDs have the ability to affect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level; they promote intense changes within the body and skin.

Red/infrared LEDs help with the following conditions:

  • Back pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • TMJ
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Muscle pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Bone spurs
  • Bursitis
  • Torn cartilage
  • Shoulder pain
  • Strains and sprains
  • Bone fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Spasms and knots
  • and more……

Benefits of red/infrared and red/yellow combinations for the skin:

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Reduces lines and wrinkles
  • Fades age/sun spots
  • Diminishes scarring
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Smoothes the surface of the skin
  • Lessens pore size
  • Tightens and firms
  • Reduces redness associated with rosacea
  • Eases sunburn symptoms
  • Speeds up the healing of blemishes

Infrared/red help for pets:

  • Increases circulation driving more oxygen and nutrients to the injured area
  • Blocks pain transmitting neurons
  • Stimulates the production of endorphins
  • Speeds up the healing process
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Eases pain in the following conditions:
  • Arthritis
  • Hip pain
  • Deep muscle pain
  • Bone spurs
  • Muscle spasms and knots
  • Injuries
  • Strains
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Wounds

As the research continues the benefits appear to grow and grow offering more opportunities to treat a vast number of conditions.  Often compared to laser therapy, red light therapy doesn’t carry any of the risk that lasers produce.  It’s a safe, non-invasive, and drug-free option for transforming your life with the healing power of light.
