What is Red Light Therapy?
RLT, (photobiomodulation), is a treatment that helps muscle tissue, skin and other parts of the body heal and regenerate. It helps both mental and physical health. RLT is proven to be effective in accelerating natural healing of the body, reducing swelling and inflammation, stimulating the immune system, relieving pain, improving skin and alleviating anxiety.
Our solar therapy ensures the body receives optimal healing wavelengths at the correct power densities and dosage of red and near infrared light. The wavelengths deeply penetrate the skin and the mitochondrial chromosomes absorb the photons. Electrons are transported, adenosine triphosphate nitric oxide release. Blood flow and reactive oxygen species increase and diverse signalling pathways are activated.
RLT heals from the inside out, rather than just providing relief from symptoms. Our state of the art units use the latest technology to deliver specific wavelengths (660nm- 850nm) of red and near-infrared light in the most effective way to the whole body. A full spectrum of light is necessary to keep the body synchronised otherwise the body’s processes do not function properly causing many problems. Infrared light is energy that can’t be seen but felt through heat, red light can be seen. Both lights are delivered together and have many benefits. The treatment is non-invasive, relaxing and therapeutic.
How Does It Work?
The light goes deep into the centre of your cells (mitochondria) and causes it to create more energy, charging the cells as proven in many studies. This helps the cell produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate) energy during the cellular respiration process. ATP is a crucial molecule that fuels everything the body does. The cell starts to repair itself and in turn starts the healing process of the skin and muscle tissue. The light has all the goodness of the sun but no damaging UV rays.
Treatment time varies between 5 and 20 minutes. As your cells can only absorb so much light at once, regular use is optimal. We use only the red and near infrared wavelengths that are clinically proven to be effective and safe. However, we always recommend consulting with your healthcare provider for specific questions about any of your health conditions. You may experience some detox-related symptoms once you start RLT treatment, especially if your cells are starved of natural light – shorten treatment times and if symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
Result times vary depending on health issues and consistency of use. Some feel relaxed, energised and their mood improve from the first treatment. Reduced inflammation and joint pain has been seen within a matter of days and skin health, fat loss and other long term benefits may take weeks or months.
The Covid pandemic has highlighted the importance of good health – RLT boosts immunity and optimises the mitrocondria of cells.
The treatment is FDA approved and has over 4,000 clinical trials demonstrating the results of this treatment and what can be achieved. RLT is clinically proven to help the body recover from a variety of conditions because it powerfully supports the body’s own healing mechanisms.
