WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?
Red Light Therapy (RLT) is also known as photobiomodulation (PBM) or low-level light therapy (LLLT). It is the combination of natural Red and Near Infrared types of light from the sun. Red light is visible and near infrared light is invisible to the human eye. Red Light Therapy is safe and is concentrated natural light found in the ranges of 630-670 and 810-880nm.
WHAT DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY DO?
The Red Light combination is able to come into contact with individual cells up to 8-10 millimeters beneath the skin’s surface. This light is able to effect the cells in which it’s light comes into contact. This includes the surrounding tissue, lymph nodes, fat cells, nerve fibers, blood cells, and hair follicles. What is interesting about Red Light Therapy is that it effects each person differently.
The light is able to supercharge an individual cell with energy. The nucleus, or “brain” of your cell, decides what your body needs most and uses the energy to do so. For example, if the light comes into contact with a damaged cell it will help to repair the cell if possible. If the cells is damaged beyond repair, the energy will be used to detox the cell out of your body. Essentially, Red Light Therapy allows your body to function at it’s best by supporting you on a cellular level.
IS RED LIGHT THERAPY NEW?
Red Light Therapy seems to be only recently becoming known in The United States. However, don’t be fooled! The practice is not new. Ancient Roman, Egyptian, and Greek cultures understood and utilized the healing benefits of this practice. Our ancestors could sun bathe safely at sunrise and sunset to reap the red light benefits. Due to the depletion of the ozone layer, it is not so easy for us to do the same.
In the early 90’s, NASA began the modern research and applications of Red Light Therapy. Thanks to decades of scientific research and clinical studies, we now have an understanding of the possibilities. All of this research has lead the FDA to clear Red Light Therapy as safe and effective for many uses.
