When qualified physiotherapist, Rory O’Neill, first investigated the far-reaching health benefits of Red Light Therapy (RLT), he was stunned by the results. Having searched extensively for effective pain relief solutions for his patients, he realised that this non-invasive technique could have a soothing and restorative effect on the body’s cells, releasing tension and easing pain. He was determined to use the therapy to promote pain relief and healing, going even further to envision a product range that would assist in optimising the human body’s performance from the comfort of one’s own home. With this mission in mind, he founded LumiRed, Ireland’s first supplier of exceptional-quality RLT products.
RLT is not a miracle cure, but it is a proven and effective method for managing chronic pain. The therapy, backed by multiple medical studies, consists of the use of high-quality lamps to expose your skin to non-harmful levels of red (near infra-red) light. The light rays are absorbed by mitochondria (the ‘energy factories’ of our cells), stimulating a charging effect and accelerating healing in the skin and muscle tissue. As health professionals, we know that this light therapy is not a cure-all, but we can confidently say that LumiRed’s product range effectively empowers your body to speed up and enhance its natural healing process.
In addition to its potential to treat chronic pain conditions, RLT has also proven to be immensely beneficial in other areas of wellness, including mobility, muscle control, skin longevity, cellular growth, and reduction of inflammation.
