What Is Red Light Therapy & How Does It Work?
This soothing full-body treatment helps promote overall wellness and peak physiological function by encouraging the body’s inherently restorative processes. Relieve pain, relax sore muscles, and increase blood circulation to deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout the entire body.
Just as plants need light to grow, light provides functional support for the human body. Red Light Therapy (also known as Photobiomodulation Therapy) uses red and infrared wavelengths of light that may help to boost energy levels, relieve minor pain and swelling, and balance your mood—all in as little as 10 minutes per day.
How Red Light Therapy Works
The light penetrates the skin and reaches the mitochondria, the energy-producing organelles of the cells. There, it activates a protein called cytochrome c oxidase, which increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the molecule that fuels cellular activities.
Red light therapy also modulates the levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are involved in inflammation, oxidative stress, and cell signaling. By increasing ATP and reducing ROS, red light therapy can improve various aspects of health and wellness, such as wound healing, skin rejuvenation, pain relief, muscle recovery, cognitive function and more.
Red Light FAQS
Red Light Therapy, also known as PBM or Photobiomodulation Therapy, is a painless and relaxing service that takes only 30 minutes. Before your Red Light Therapy appointment, you’ll fill out a simple waiver and then head back to our private Red Light Therapy room.
Our staff will turn on the Red Light Therapy machine and give you some privacy. Clients usually remove their shirt or change into a robe so that their skin can soak up the maximum amount of light during their session. During your Red Light Therapy session, you’ll feel a mild warmth coming from the lights. You can choose to wear sunglasses during your PBM session or simply close your eyes, relax and soak up the glow!
Red Light Therapy uses low levels of red or near-infrared light to help power your cells and promote healing and energy. The low wavelength red light produced by our Red Light Therapy machines that can be absorbed by the mitochondria in your body, which are responsible for many important processes in your day to day health, healing abilities, and energy production.
Red Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation uses very low levels of heat that do not hurt or burn the skin. Unlike tanning booths, Red Light Therapy won’t expose skin to damaging UV rays.
