What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is a bit like taking a magical multi-vitamin that knows exactly where to go to strengthen and improve the body's natural healing mechanisms.
NASA’s Scientists were the first to discover the inspiring advancement of red light therapy and use red LED lights over lasers to heal wounds in space and on earth. When applied to the body, LED light therapy (both infrared and visible red light) delivers light energy to tissues and cells in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. However it's important to mention that Red Light Therapy is UV-free, using only non-invasive, healthy, safe light rays to energize cells and stimulate the body's natural process. With no pills, no downtime, no side effects - Red Light Therapy is becoming popular in the wellness world for building new proteins and regenerating cells, temporarily relieving arthritic, muscular and joint pain, reducing inflammation and stiffness and increasing blood circulation and healing time!
One of the main benefits of light therapy is that it reduces oxidative stress and increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. ATP is an essential molecule required by all living things to make usable energy for your body. We need and use ATP to power every movement we take in our physical body! Humans spend the equivalent of their own body weight in ATP through the course of a day. Red light therapy breaks up the major roadblock to ATP, which is excess nitric oxide. Too much nitric oxide competes with oxygen, and stops the eventual production of ATP. Through improved ATP production, red light therapy combats oxidative stress, and provides additional energy and power to your body.
Red light therapy is for everyone! Whether you're an overworked parent, an athlete needing to stay competitive and pain free, if you suffer from arthritis or chronic pain - red light is a natural option for pain relief and total body wellness.
