Specific Wavelengths of Red and Near Infrared Light have been clinically proven to activate various intra-cellular metobolic pathways. Leading to increased production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, enhanced cell signaling, and elevated protein synthesis.
Red Light Therapy
Red Light is primarily absorbed by your skin, leading to increased collagen production and optimal skin health.
Near Infrared Light Therapy
Near infrared light penetrates deeper within your body- enhancing muscle recovery and reducing joint pain.
Light therapy harnesses the healing power of natural light, which stimulates your cells to regenerate faster and produce more energy, resulting in a wide range of clinically-documented health benefits.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the use of red or near-infrared (NIR) light to heal, restore and stimulate multiple physiological processes and to repair damage caused by injury or disease. PBM started out as what used to be known as “low level laser therapy, LLLT” in the late 1960's, and was clinically applied for wound healing and the relief of pain and inflammation in a wide range of orthopedic conditions.
PBMT does not heat tissue, it does however increase circulation so a warming sensation is often experienced.
A light therapy device uses LEDs to deliver doses of safe, therapeutic red and near infrared light (NIR) to your body. It’s completely non-invasive, painless, and natural. Most people find light therapy to be pleasurable and experience at least some acute boost in mood and energy after each session.
The Right Wavelengths Make All the Difference
Red and near infrared light therapy uses a very specific range of wavelengths within the natural light spectrum (660nm to 850nm). A wealth of clinical research shows this range of light is highly beneficial at the cellular level. Light therapy delivers these therapeutic wavelengths without harmful heat or UV rays.
How Does Light Therapy Work?
Light therapy works at the cellular level. Photons of therapeutic red and near infrared light are absorbed by the mitochondria in your cells, producing 2 major effects:
More ATP energy: Light therapy increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy produced during cellular respiration that powers your cells (and indeed, all life on earth). More ATP means more energy and healthier function.
Enhanced cell signaling: Specific wavelengths of light help to create a better oxidative environment in your cells. This results in the activation of numerous intracellular signaling pathways, increased protein synthesis, and enhanced cell cycle progression.
Clinically-Proven Health Benefits
Light therapy has been studied extensively. There’s a wealth of clinical research that shows numerous health benefits, with virtually no side effects. Here’s a sampling of documented benefits:
Improved skin tone, clarity, & complexion
Diminishes age spots, fine lines, & wrinkles
Stimulates production of collagen and elastin
Increases blood circulation
Speeds muscle recovery to boost training & athletic performance
Reduces joint pain & inflammation
Speeds healing of wounds & injuries
Boosts natural melatonin production & promotes healthy sleep
Light therapy is safe, non-invasive, uses no chemicals or drugs, and is not associated with harmful side effects. It simply harnesses the natural healing and rejuvenating benefits of a specific range of therapeutic light and delivers this targeted energy at a higher rate than the sun—without harmful UV rays. A major 2013 study conducted by Harvard and MIT researchers praised light therapy for its “noninvasive nature and almost complete absence of side effects.”
How often should I use full-body light therapy?
Acute injuries and inflammation from muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, burns, etc. typically show very rapid improvement and can resolve in 2-4 treatments. Long-term, chronic conditions can take as little as 12 sessions to see significant benefits. Minimum interval recommendation is 2-3 times per week until your goals are met, then 1-2 times per week for ongoing maintenance. For individuals who exercise frequently or at high levels, 3-5 times per week is recommended for optimal recovery.
