FITNESS & RECOVERY
Red Light Therapy increases recovery time in muscles and allows you to improve your workouts.
Red light therapy, particularly in the infrared spectrum uses your natural biology to help you recover. It does this through collagen stimulation, increased blood flow and an increase in cellular energy. Red light therapy stimulates an increase in ATP production in your cells, helping your body perform and recover at an enhanced level. Light therapy also boosts muscle growth, reduces DOMS and improves sleep allowing you to perform at your best.
Exposure of the body to red light increases cellular metabolism. Activating the cells into producing more ATP/energy meaning the body has more access to clean efficient energy, resulting in better performance and function. Thousands of studies show effectiveness of Red Light Therapy as a performance and recovery tool, therefore Olympians, NFL, all pros, NBA teams, boxers, MMA fighters and professional gyms have adopted the treatment.
Red light therapy before strength training sessions leads to enhanced strength and post training leads to enhanced recovery. Red and near-infrared light promotes cellular growth of healthy muscle tissue and muscle hypertrophy, helping users achieve their results.
In endurance based sports, a 2018 trial concluded that "engaging in red light therapy before exercise increases oxygen uptake, increases how long volunteers could exercise before hitting the point of exhaustion and significantly improves fat loss.”
Due to its anti-oxidation effect on cells, muscle fatigue reduces and heat hormones increase, safeguarding cells against chronic oxidation, mutations, decay and eventual cell death. Light therapy also leads to improved blood flow. When your muscles receive more blood they perform better, endure more and heal/repair faster.
While there is no cure for Fibromyalgia, Red Light Therapy (RLT) can improve this condition if the procedure is followed correctly and continuously. RLT is effective in reducing pain throughout the body, particularly chronic pain and Fibromyalgia.
RLT for fibromyalgia also helps ease tiredness, improve sleep, and facilitates the production of endorphins and serotonin, which will alleviate pain and improve your mood. Exercise is one essential factor for these conditions. RLT for fibromyalgia will reduce pain and inflammation on your entire body, allowing you to exercise comfortably once again.
After one week of therapy, there is often a significant reduction in pain levels and an increased ability to perform daily activities.
Infrared Light can work to reduce muscle atrophy, improve bone density, and speed bone healing, post fracture or break.
The increased collagen production associated with red light accelerates bone healing and improves bone density and structure. Concentrated natural light stimulates the mitochondria in your cells, reducing oxidative stress, and helping your body produce more usable energy to power itself, regenerate, and heal.
Recent research has proven the effectiveness of RLT in the healing of bone-related injuries.
Anti - aging
Anti - aging
Red Light stimulates collagen production to minimise wrinkles and fine lines.
According to Glamour Magazine, it helps to stimulate the production of elastin and the stimulation of collagen. It is also worth noting that the treatment is non-invasive and drug-free, giving you all the benefits with none of the side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
With Anti-Aging Light Therapy at Home, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a wide array of other signs of aging. The therapy will also move on to increase the firmness of your skin, as well as its texture and elasticity.
Again, the non-invasive nature of this treatment is its biggest, most significant advantage.

Red light therapy adopts four mechanisms to help provide relief from arthritis: decreasing pain, reducing inflammation, increasing circulation, and stimulating cellular repair within the joint.
By reducing joint pain, you can achieve greater levels of physical activity and function – a critical component in dealing with arthritis. Infrared light reduces the swelling in joints, thus providing greater freedom of movement. Increased circulation brings healthy oxygenated blood and nutrients to the affected area, boosting the body’s natural healing process. Increased ATP production leads to increased cellular repair.
Red and Infrared light can successfully reduce the symptoms of arthritis allowing you to exercise more comfortably and live a more comfortable pain free life.
Red Light Therapy opens, liquifies, and shrinks existing fat cells.
We all know there are no magic pills when it comes to weight loss. Diet, exercise, and lower stress levels are all very important factors. However, Red light therapy can be complimentary to these activities. So how does this occur?
The main effect of Red Light is that it stimulates cellular energy. The more energy our cells produce, the more efficiently they function. The more efficiently they function, the more efficiently you function as a human. Increased metabolism, improved ability to exercise and function daily and improved function of your organs all serve to stimulate excess fat loss.
Red Light has been shown to create tiny holes or pores in the fat cells in your body which allows fatty acids or lipids to be released. Even a few minutes of exposure causes significant amounts of lipids to be released.
We all know that weight training and increased muscle mass results in significant weight loss. Red Light has been proven by numerous research studies to increase muscle mass which leads to increased calorie turnover and improved body composition.
Red Light reduces fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, psoriasis, stretch marks and even the side effects of chemotherapy.
If you’re looking for a treatment for the overall well-being of your skin, there’s hardly any treatment service that is as wholesome and convenient as red light therapy.
Red light therapy takes the responsibility of treating issues like scars, acne, vitiligo, and eczema. The therapy also improves the generation of blood cells and tissues. It soothes the skin as well, this leading to improved healing times for skin issues.
The therapy works without the need for any additional product or treatment
Pain & Inflammation
Pain & Inflammation
Red Light Therapy decreases inflammation and stimulates healing and regeneration at a cellular level
The red and near-infrared spectrum provide significant anti-inflammatory properties. Red light can help to reduce joint pain across the body by providing enough energy to reduce inflammation and optimise the flow of energy. This leads to less pressure on the nerves, joints, and muscles. Better circulation is crucial to reduce pain sensitivity.
Rest assured that infrared and RLT will help to treat inflammation. Studies have also shown that infrared light therapy for pain relief has the same anti-inflammatory effects on the body as the popular non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. At the same time, it doesn’t come with the risks associated with long-term consumption of these drugs.
Red Light Therapy nourishes the scalp and stimulates natural hair growth.
There are many causes for hair loss. Genetics, stress, hormonal imbalances, poor nutrition, and side-effects from medical treatments are all contributing factors. Traditional means of addressing this are expensive invasive surgeries, medication with nasty side effects and shampoo products that yield limited benefits. Red light therapy offers a viable solution with no side effects. It is without doubt one of the most cost-effective measures that you can undertake to reverse the effects of hair loss.
RLT increases capillary formation in the scalp. This increases the blood flow and delivery of oxygenated, nutrient rich blood to the scalp and hair follicles. RLT also stimulates ATP synthesis within the hair follicles, increasing their metabolism and replication.
RLT improves sleep quality and decreases the sensation of grogginess upon waking, stimulating natural energy levels.
Sleep disorders and insomnia are no joke. Sleep is fundamental to our bodies function and repair processes. Without adequate sleep almost every bodily function is impacted. Unfortunately, the treatments for sleep disorders are limited. These are usually in the form of medication which over time can have detrimental effects on the body.
Blue light which is given off by screens, devices and standard lights are stimulatory and can negatively affect sleep by stimulating the body and telling the brain it’s time to wake up. Red light on the other hand has a relaxing effect. The use of red light in the evening can help relax your body and help it transition into a natural sleep cycle.
