What is red light?
The term “ red light therapy ” refers to treatments based on LEDs or cold lasers that project wavelengths of natural red light and near infrared light.
This excludes white light, blue light, or blue LED masks, and is not the same as full spectrum light. Some people may include infrared or far infrared wavelengths with red light therapy. However these are generally used in dry saunas because of their ability to produce heat.
That’s not the point here: Red light therapy doesn’t rely on heat. This is the major difference between natural light treatments and those based on heat such as infrared sauna, traditional sauna or any other type of heat therapy.
How does red light therapy work?
Red light therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment. The latter delivers concentrated natural light to your skin and cells. Red light therapy is quick and easy. All you need to do is sit or stand in front of a red light device for 5-15 minutes. Ideally every day. This gives the mitochondria in your cells the natural light they need to produce energy to fuel your body.
Our cells need natural light every day; just as they need water and nutrients from food. Red light therapy allows you to supplement the light you receive in your environment. It adds wavelengths concentrated in red and near infrared light; and with a wide range of natural health benefits.
Home red light lamps use medical grade LEDs to illuminate your body. The rays correspond to natural red and near infrared light. They work like the natural light wavelengths your body needs, but without the heat or UV rays. These cause damage to your skin, eyes and mucous membranes.
