Red and Near Infrared (NIR) Light are bioactive wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Red light and NIR light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation or low-level light therapy, works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes at the cellular level and has amazing effects on our bodies. It uses LED bulbs to shine concentrated red and NIR light onto bare skin. The light photons soak into tissues in and beneath the skin, and stimulate our mitochondria, the energy-producing organelles inside our cells. This leads to a beneficial ripple effect throughout the body that has been shown to have innumerable and widespread health benefits.

Many studies suggest that red light therapy promotes longevity and optimizes cellular health.
Red light therapy is safe and natural, and based on our ancient knowledge of the sun’s healing properties. Clinical research has shown that of the visible light wavelengths, red light (630nm to 660nm) and NIR light (810nm to 850 nm) have the most scientifically validated benefits for the human body. These wavelengths work at the cellular level to address the root cause of the conditions being treated. Although it should not be considered a cure for any condition, thousands of studies conducted over the past three decades confirm the efficacy of red light therapy, further confirmed by innumerable reports of people who’ve seen relief and remission of their symptoms after treatment. In fact, red light photobiomodulation therapy has FDA approval for several purposes including hair-loss reversal, treatment of acne, wound healing, pain relief, and fat loss.
Research has shown that mitochondrial dysfunction and chronic inflammation are often the primary cause or a major contributing factor to a number of conditions and diseases. Cells with poorly functioning mitochondria are weak, vulnerable to infection, slow to heal and not able to communicate effectively with neighboring cells, and therefore poorly perform tasks that allow the body to function normally.
For most conditions, it is recommended that you jump-start the healing process with up to 2-3 sessions per week, each treatment lasting 12 minutes, for an initial 4-6 period. Results are typically seen within the first 1-2 weeks. During this time, cells will be energized, inflammation will be reduced, healthy new cells will begin forming, newly formed capillaries will carry oxygen and nutrients to tissues, and collagen and elastin production will increase. For chronic conditions, ongoing sessions two or three times a month will help maintain and enhance these initial results.
