Red Light Therapy

Have you heard of Red light therapy? It has grown in popularity in recent years and is perhaps the best known of the light therapies. Sunlight contains all wavelengths of light, including red light and infrared light, which have been found to be beneficial for the body. Let there be light — for your pain, skin, and injuries, that is. 

What Is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to penetrate the skin, offering a variety of health benefits. This therapy, originally developed by NASA for plant growth experiments in space, has since been extensively researched and is widely used for skin rejuvenation, muscle recovery, pain relief, and more.

Red Light Therapy has been the subject of numerous scientific studies, with over 10,000 studies supporting its efficacy. Research has shown that red light therapy can significantly improve cellular metabolism, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue repair.

Furter more the circadian rhythm, or the body’s 24-hour clock, is closely linked to light exposure, specifically the release of melatonin.

The photochemical reaction triggered by red light therapy is similar to photosynthesis in plants, where light energy is converted into chemical energy, promoting cellular health and function.

Red light therapy works by delivering red 620-660nm) and near-infrared (810-850nm) light through the skin, which is absorbed by the mitochondria in cells. Mitochondria, known as the powerhouses of cells, produce Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of cells.

When red light is absorbed, it enhances mitochondrial function, leading to increased ATP production. This boost in cellular energy enhances cellular repair, regeneration, and overall function.

Red Light Therapy uses targeted light to improve cellular energy production, aiding in healing, reducing inflammation, and enhancing skin health
