Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) light therapy

Winter can feel dark and dreary, and unless you're planning to jet off to the Bahamas for the season, there isn't a way out. Suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) during the winter months can be rough and if conventional treatments haven't helped you much, there is light at the end of the tunnel, quite literally. Red light therapy (RLT) is showing promise as an effective seasonal affective disorder treatment, potentially bringing relief to millions of sufferers across the UK and the globe.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?

As the weather gets colder and the days grow shorter, some people start to feel a change in their mood. They may feel tired, have trouble concentrating, and experience changes in their appetite. For some people, these feelings are more than just the “winter blues.” They may have a form of depression known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

SAD is a type of depression that occurs at the same time each year. It usually starts in Autumn or Winter and goes away during the Spring or Summer. SAD is more common in people who live in Northern latitudes, where there is less sunlight in winter. It’s also more commonly reported in women and young adults. In the UK, a study found that almost 35% of the UK population report a mood decrease from Autumn.

People with SAD may not have all the symptoms of major depression. But they typically have enough symptoms to interfere with their daily life. The most common symptom of SAD is feeling depressed most of the day, nearly every day, for at least two weeks straight. Other common symptoms include:

  • Feeling sluggish or agitated
  • Having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Losing interest in activities you once enjoyed
  • Feeling hopeless, worthless, or guilty
  • Having difficulty concentrating or remembering things
  • Avoiding social activities
  • Low productivity

How to Cure Seasonal Depression

There are a number of SAD treatment options for those afflicted by this debilitating disorder, so you needn’t suffer. SAD can be treated with antidepressant medications, light therapy, and psychotherapy.

1. Light Therapy

One of the most common treatments for SAD is light therapy, also called phototherapy, photobiomodulation or red light therapy. Light therapy involves sitting in front of a special light box that emits bright red light for 30 minutes to two hours every day. The Mayo Clinic recommends using the light therapy device with an hour of waking up for at least 20 to 30 minutes a day.

The light box is usually placed on a desk or table where you can work or read while you’re receiving treatment. Some people find that their symptoms improve after just a few days of red light therapy, but others may need to continue treatment for several weeks. A study found that some people reported an improvement in depression scores after just an hour of light therapy.

2. Antidepressant Medications

Antidepressant medications can also be effective in treating severe cases of SAD. These medications increase levels of neurotransmitters in the brain, which can help improve mood. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant for SAD. If medication is deemed necessary, your doctor will work with you to find the most suitable one.

Antidepressants can take between 4-6 weeks to kick in and start bringing relief, which is a long wait if you are in the throes of a very bad episode of SAD.

3. Psychotherapy 

Oftentimes, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can be beneficial to SAD sufferers. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that helps people identify and change negative thinking and behaviour patterns.

NLP is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on changing the way people think and communicate with themselves and others.

4. Combination of Treatments

Often a combination of SAD treatments is required for the best outcome. For example, if your doctor requires you to start medication, it can be beneficial for you to start red light therapy at home in order for you to find some quick relief while the medication takes effect. The Aduro LED Face Mask allows you to reap the benefits of red light therapy in the comfort of your own home.

Benefits of Light Therapy on SAD

Light therapy offers a number of benefits to those struggling with SAD. Red light therapy has been shown to be an effective seasonal affective disorder therapy. A number of studies have shown that red light therapy can help to improve mood, reduce symptoms of depression, and increase energy levels in people with SAD. Additionally, red light therapy can help to improve sleep quality in people with SAD.

Red light therapy works by exposing the person to bright light. The bright light helps to regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythm, which can be off balance in people with SAD. Additionally, red light can help boost levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that is linked to mood regulation.

Red light therapy takes the best components of sunlight, red and near-infrared while eliminating ultraviolet and delivers these to the body. This is extremely beneficial in winter months when our skin receives minimal amounts of natural sunlight.

How To Choose A Red Light Therapy Device To Treat SAD

red light therapy

When it comes to SAD and light therapy, there are a few things you need to consider before purchasing a device. Here are a few tips on how to choose a red light therapy device:

1. Figure out your budget. Red light therapy devices can vary in price, so it’s important to figure out how much you’re willing to spend before starting your search.

2. Consider the size of the device. If you plan on using your device at home, you’ll want to make sure it’s small enough to fit in your space. Some devices are designed for portable use and can be used in various positions and settings. Larger devices cover more area but are less portable so are better suited to a room where you go to administer your treatments.

3. Choose a device with adjustable settings. Many red light therapy devices come with adjustable settings, so you can tailor the amount of light exposure to your needs. This is especially important if you have sensitive skin or are just starting out with light therapy treatments.

4. Consider the warranty and return policy before making your purchase. Most reputable companies offer at least a one-year warranty on their devices. All LumiRed devices are covered with a 3-year warranty for your peace of mind.

Phototherapy: How it works and what are the benefits

Phototherapy is a treatment that uses focused doses of light to help improve certain medical conditions. The light can stem from natural sunlight or artificial sources of light like special lamps. Red light therapy is a type of phototherapy and by far one of the safest forms of light therapy available to date. If you’re wondering whether red light therapy could help improve your medical condition, how phototherapy works and what its many benefits could be for you, read on for your ultimate guide to understanding red light phototherapy.

History of Phototherapy and Its Evolution

The concept of using light to treat a number of conditions, especially skin conditions, is not a new concept. The use of phototherapy as a treatment dates back almost 3500 years ago when ancient Egyptians regularly practised heliotherapy in treating skin conditions like leucoderma. However, with technology, light therapy evolved into something quite different.

Not long after Edison’s invention of the lightbulb, a Danish scientist discovered that concentrated electric light could speed up wound healing for lupus patients. It would take another 70 years for the first low-level laser therapy device to be developed in 1967. It was only in the late 1990s that modifications to LEDs evolved into red light therapy as we know it today.

How Phototherapy Works

Red light therapy uses red LED light to stimulate the mitochondrial cells. These cells absorb light particles to produce energy by releasing ATP, a chemical compound responsible for cellular energy. When there is increased cellular energy, the result is increased oxygen in the bloodstream, better circulation and faster cell regeneration. Thus, exposing the skin to red light can help reduce inflammation, itching and other symptoms associated with a variety of skin conditions as well as improve general well-being.

Phototherapy can be administered in various ways, including via lamps, booths and panels. The type of phototherapy you receive will depend on your condition and your doctor’s recommendation. A course of treatment typically lasts several weeks or months and is usually done multiple times a week.

Types of Phototherapy

There are several different types of phototherapy that can be used to treat a variety of conditions. The most common type of phototherapy used by dermatologists is ultraviolet light therapy, which uses either ultraviolet A (UVA) or ultraviolet B (UVB) light to treat conditions like psoriasis, vitiligo, newborn jaundice and atopic dermatitis.

Other types of light therapy which do not use UV rays include:

  • Infrared therapy, which uses imperceptible red light and heat to penetrate the skin and promote tissue and cell healing;
  • LED therapy, which uses different coloured LED light, including red and blue light, to target specific areas of the skin (red light therapy falls under this umbrella);
  • Pulsed light therapy, which uses high-intensity pulses of light to improve the appearance of the skin and for permanent hair removal.

There are a number of different terms for red light therapy which include:

  • Low-level laser therapy
  • Photobiomodulation
  • Phototherapy
  • Non-thermal LED therapy
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Biostimulation

Uses of Phototherapy

There are many different uses of phototherapy that treat various health conditions. The conditions treated depend on the type of light therapy used. Some of the most common phototherapy benefits when using red light therapy include:

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): This is a type of depression that occurs during the winter months when there is less natural daylight, which can reduce levels of mood-boosting serotonin. Phototherapy can be used to help increase the amount of light exposure and thereby improve mood.
  • Chronic Pain: Red light therapy is commonly used as a treatment for pain associated with musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis, scoliosis and carpal tunnel. Red light therapy works to reduce inflammation which is often the cause of pain.
  • Insomnia: For those struggling to get a decent night of sleep, phototherapy can help regulate melatonin production and the body’s circadian rhythm for better sleep patterns.
  • Athletic Performance & Recovery: Because RLT increases energy levels, reduces inflammation and speeds up tissue healing, it can not only improve athletic endurance and performance but speed up your post-workout recovery.
  • Acne: While UV phototherapy is often recommended for acne treatment, repeated exposure can have other damaging effects on the skin cells. Red light therapy used on its own or in conjunction with blue light therapy can radically improve the appearance of acne by reducing inflammation and slowing down sebum production, which is responsible for clogging pores. You could try an at-home red light face mask if you don’t have the budget for a dermatologist.
  • Psoriasis: This is a skin condition that causes red, scaly patches on the skin. Phototherapy can help reduce the size of the patches and improve symptoms.

Phototherapy Risks

Red light therapy does not carry the same risks as UV phototherapy because it is an entirely natural process. It is painless, safe and when used as per the instructions, void of risks. There have been reports of minor burns and blistering when people have fallen asleep with the devices on their bodies, exceeding the recommended treatment times, or if power cords have been damaged. LumiRed only sells FDA-approved devices that are not associated with the same risks as UV phototherapy.

While red light phototherapy is considered to be safe, there are some potential risks and precautions to take if going the UV route. Risks include damage to skin cells, increased risk of skin cancer and eye sensitivity.

Key Takeaway

Phototherapy is a safe and effective treatment for a number of common ailments and offers a number of benefits to patients. It is a low-risk, safe and affordable alternative treatment that can be administered in the comfort of your home, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.

Could Red Light Therapy Calm Your Anxiety?

If you happen to be part of the 18% (and counting) of the Irish population who suffer from an anxiety disorder, you may be seeking out an alternative therapy, so you can live your life to the fullest again. Recent studies have shown almost 1-in-4 people in Ireland have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder since 2020. However, there’s a new treatment on the block, and it's showing some promising results: red light therapy.

How light affects the body

Light is an important part of our overall health and well-being. In fact, we all need natural light in order for our bodies to function optimally. With working from home now the norm, people are spending much more time indoors and most are not exposed to adequate natural light in day-to-day life. This affects healthy cell functioning and bodily processes.

Lack of sunlight leads to mood disorders

Lack of exposure to adequate natural light can deplete serotonin and dopamine stores, resulting in chronic anxiety and depression. In addition to this, spending too much time indoors can itself can lead to various mood disorders, including Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Before we explore the benefits of red light therapy as a treatment for anxiety and depression, it is important to note that while beneficial, red light therapy should not replace working with a therapist or any other prescribed treatments but instead be used to enhance their effects and boost the overall wellbeing of the body.

How can red light therapy treat anxiety?

red light therapy

Now that you have a better understanding of how natural light impacts your mood and overall wellbeing, let’s look at how, specifically, red light therapy can help you manage your anxiety symptoms.

There are mitochondria within every cell in your body that are responsible for generating energy. Much like with photosynthesis in plants, red light therapy stimulates these powerhouse cells and produces a number of favourable results. These include:

  • Increase blood circulation and thus create an anti-inflammatory response throughout the body;
  • Optimise metabolic activity in the brain cells to more effectively take in oxygen and help you think clearly;
  • Reduce free radicals and cell damage;
  • Reduce global inflammation, decreasing brain fog, pain and elevating mood.

Unlike other forms of light, red light can infiltrate the many layers of skin more deeply and therefore the cells in the body can more readily absorb light. This has led scientists to also refer to red light therapy as photobiomodulation therapy – or PBMT – because of its unique ability to influence cellular functioning. Recent studies showed that regular red light therapy treatments reduced anxiety in up to 70% of participants within two weeks. With this in mind, let’s look at the mental health benefits of red light therapy in detail.

Recharge Your Batteries

Low levels of energy and fatigue are often associated with anxiety disorders. As we touched on above, red light therapy stimulates the mitochondria that power your body with the energy it needs to function. Because the body is so amazing and cleverly designed, it sends the energy to whichever part of the body needs it most. So, after regular red light therapy sessions you can expect to start feeling an increase in your energy levels and clarity of thought.

Give Your Brain A Boost

When red light therapy is concentrated on the head, some remarkable things can happen, which in turn, reduce symptoms of anxiety. First neuroprotection occurs, which means your brain cells function in an optimal state and cell death is reduced. Second, neurogenesis takes place, which is the regrowth of neurons damaged by injury or degeneration. Last but not least, red light therapy triggers synaptogenesis, which boost neuroplasticity and the ability of the brain to form new neural connections – this can help you replace the neural connections linked to your anxiety.

Catch More Z’s

One of the best benefits by far of red light therapy is improved sleep. Red light therapy is able to reach the hypothalamus, which is the part of your brain that controls your circadian rhythm, aka when your brain tells you it’s time to wake up and time to go to sleep. If your circadian rhythm is out of whack, and you’re fighting insomnia night after night, this can reduce your body’s ability to stay zen.

When you’re tired you’re less equipped to deal with stressful situations and more inclined to go into fight-or-flight mode more easily. In fact, lack of sleep more than doubles your odds of experiencing anxiety. It’s also no secret that many anxiety sufferers struggle to fall asleep and/or stay asleep – in fact, up to 70% report sleep disturbances as a main symptom of their condition.

While bright, natural light can signal to your brain it’s time to be awake, red light stimulates the brain to produce sleep-inducing melatonin, helping you fall asleep faster and for longer.

Holistic Wellness

Red light therapy increases optimal metabolic activity in the body’s cells, improves blood circulation (and thereby oxygen absorption) and increases cognitive function. This brings about a sense of physical, mental and emotional well-being. These three pillars of health are interconnected and when one is under strain, your overall sense of well-being will also take a knock. Red light therapy’s ability to bring about holistic wellness can make you more mindful of the powerful mind-body-spirit connection.

Create Self-Care Habits

A big part of managing anxiety disorders is implementing routines and rituals, and self-care should always form part of this routine. For example, part of your daily routine could be going for a walk after work and a healthy ritual could be repeating positive affirmations while you’re doing your hair in the morning. Red light therapy can become a part of your self-care routine by forcing you to take 15 minutes out of your day to relax and release the stress of the day.

Key Takeaways

Red light therapy offers a drug-free, complementary treatment that can enhance the effectiveness of talk therapy and prescribed medications to bring about holistic wellness including better sleep, improved cognitive function and higher energy levels.

Prevent Overtraining and Boost Recovery

Fast recovery from exercise is often touted as the holy grail. Being able to train again in the shortest possible timespan is the key to enhancing performance but doing this is a delicate balancing act in terms of preventing injury and overtraining. Accelerating recovery with light therapy, is it really possible? What is recovery? Recovery is defined as the restoration of physical and mental function after physical stress, usually resulting in a higher level of performance. Physiological recovery is the return to baseline levels of physical and mental function, while psychological recovery is the return to baseline levels of motivation. The goal of recovery is to allow the athlete to train and compete at their peak levels as often as possible, without suffering from overtraining. What Is Overtraining? Since its discovery in the mid 1800's, overtraining has been described by many different terms including "over-fatigue" and "exhaustion". The main symptoms include increased fatigue, diminished ability to perform daily tasks, depressed mood, muscle and tendon pain, reduced athletic performance, sleep disturbances, increased appetite, weight gain, and reduced immune function. For athletes, the main symptom is a loss of performance. Anecdotal evidence suggests that overtraining is common among athletes and recreational exercisers. In fact, a study performed by the American College of Sports Medicine showed that the majority of adults engage in at least one episode of overtraining per year. Overtraining can be caused by numerous factors including excessive volume, poor nutrition, and inadequate recovery. Overtraining is the result of training at a level of intensity or volume that is greater than the body can handle. Overtraining is often confused with over-exertion or over-straining, but these terms are not synonymous. Over-exertion and over-straining may occur as a result of performing a task to near-maximal capacity. Overtraining can also occur when a person performs a task for longer than they are capable of recovering from. How can red light therapy help you recover faster? Researchers have found that when we’re injured, our bodies send out signals to repair the damage. If we’re unable to repair the damage, the body releases chemicals that cause inflammation and pain. Since the body only has so much energy available, it is unable to recover from physical stresses that are too much, or prolonged. Red light therapy's primary mechanism is the restoration of cellular energy though stimulation of the mitochondria. When your body is depleted, Red Light Therapy is one of the most effective ways of bringing you back to a fully functioning state. It works by exposing the body to a specific wavelength of light which triggers stem cell activity in the body. This increases your body’s ability to repair and heal itself. This is achieved enhancing the bodies natural process in a painfree and drugfree manner. Athletes can also double up the process by performing gentle stretching, yoga or myofascial release while exposing their body to the healing effects of Red and Near Infrared light. Many professional athletes and sports teams are embracing the healing properties of light therapy in their recovery and injury prevention routines. Experience the benefits for yourself with LumiRed high powered LED panels.

Explainer-How does Red Light Therapy work?

Red Light Therapy for Horses, Dogs and Pets

Red light therapy is not just for humans, our furry friends can also experience the multiple wonderous benefits of this therapy. Animals suffer many of the same afflictions that humans do; arthritis, inflammation post surgery, slow healing wounds, infections, tendon issues, sprains and strains. Just as people are shifting towards more holistic forms of treatment for themselves, pet owners are seeking the same for their beloved animals. Red and Near Infrared light works much the same way in animals as it does in humans. Light in the Red and Near-infrared spectrums increase cellular energy in the mitochondria. Energised cells function better and more efficiently enabling faster healing, reduced pain and better overall function and health. Most pets are very comfortable around Red Light. Dogs have a more limited visual colour range than humans so are not as visually sensitive to light as humans. Cats tend to love warmth so love being exposed to light as do many other pets. Smaller animals may need less exposure to light whereas larger animals will benefit more exposure. Furry animals will gain more from being close to the light because fur, like clothing will hinder the penetration of light to the tissues. Slow healing wounds, infections or post surgical wounds respond tremendously well to Red and NIR light. Pets, horses and any animals that have wounds can often experience huge acceleration of the healing time with exposure of the wound to light. There is no difference in our LumiRed panels for animals instead of humans so they can serve a dual purpose of improving the health of you and your family members as well as your beloved animal. Research: Red Light Therapy for Horses A study found that horses with soft tissue injuries heal significantly faster when treated with a red light wavelength of 635nm. Wounds were made in the mid-metacarpal region of the legs of eight horses. After eighty days, horses treated with the red light had fully healed, while those in the control group (which hadn’t received the treatment) were still in the process of healing. The study’s authors concluded that red light therapy promoted tissue regeneration while reducing inflammation and pain. Another study carried out on fourteen horses in 1987 found that infrared light therapy alleviated chronic back pain. The horses had been unable to perform at their expected standards due to longstanding back pain, and had received little benefit from other therapies. They received a light therapy treatment weekly, for an average of 11 weeks. Ten of the fourteen horses experienced an improvement in their back pain that was so significant they were able to return to training and competing. At the one-year follow-up, nine of these ten horses continued to perform well. Red Light Therapy for Dogs A study evaluated the effects of preoperative red light therapy on dogs undergoing bone surgery. Twenty-seven dogs were divided into two groups, one of which received the red light treatment pre-operatively, the other of which received a sham treatment. Eight weeks after treatments, a greater proportion of the dogs treated with light therapy had healed. These findings were supported by another study which found near-infrared wavelengths significantly accelerated bone healing in dogs.

How Red, Infrared Light Therapy Helps You Ease And Control Your Pain?

If you're suffering from chronic or acute pain you're well aware that it's HARD to treat and you might've tried different medications, injections, endless visits to doctors and therapists...nothing worked!

Doing things you enjoy in life is starting to get harder and harder... Hope for a pain-free life is fading away and you start to feel as if there is nothing that can help you... It's a common feeling shared by lots of people in Ireland... In fact, according to a report published by Chronic Pain Ireland in 2017, an estimated 598,000 people in the Republic of Ireland are living with chronic pain at a severe level... It shouldn't be that way, and thankfully there is a Little-Known pain therapy that’s showing promising results for those who are looking to FINALLY control their pain and live a pain-free life..
I couldn’t recommend this device highly enough. Rory was able to give me advice on how best to use the machine and it is one of the best investments I have made. It has tremendously helped with my pain levels and also my overall healing. I have completely come off my painkillers for my chronic chest and back pain since I started using the Red Light. It has definitely helped lower the inflammation in my body. I use it every day and this really has been life changing for me in managing symptoms. - Sarah - Lumired customer.
It’s a clinically proven treatment, known in academia as “Photobiomodulation” , backed by more than 3000 scientific studies, and first used by NASA to grow plants in space…it’s Red and Infrared light therapy... And in this blog post, our goal is to explain how red, infrared light therapy can help you live a pain-free life and help you control your pain WITHOUT drugs, injections or endless visits to doctors...with simple 5-20min of RED/NIR light therapy each day? And Help you decide whether red light therapy is for you? So to start with... Red Light Therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free technique that Doctors, Dermatologists, Health and Wellness Professionals use or recommend to treat various medical and cosmetic conditions… The Light used during the therapy (Red or Infrared) has a specific scientifically proven wavelength of light that produces a natural response from the body’s own cell’s… And the difference between Red Light and Infrared light is the wavelength and how deep each light can penetrate through the skin… Red Light has a wavelength of around 620 to 750 nm, and it can penetrate the skin up to 10 mm… While Near-infrared has a wavelength of around 700 nm to 1400 nm and it can penetrate the skin up to 40 mm… As an important note for you here… When choosing your at-home red/infrared light therapy device, make sure it emits that specific wavelength: Between 620 and 750 nm Red, and between 700 and 1400 nm Infrared to make sure you get a working device and not just a placebo.

How Does Red Infrared Light Therapy Help with Pain?

You see, humans have trillions of cells and each cell requires energy to do its job and keep our body in harmony. They get the energy from the water we drink, food, and oxygen in a process called “cellular respiration”...The product of cellular respiration is what’s called adenosine triphosphate (ATP)...This molecule is responsible for energy, the energy that our body needs and uses every second… And the more efficiently we can create (ATP) the better we feel and function! Now, what Red/NIR light treatments do is… When the Red/NIR light penetrates your stimulates the cells, and more specifically, it impacts the mitochondria and the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell or think of it as the energy factory of the cell… So it impacts the mitochondria by increasing the number of mitochondria, and also by boosting their function in the cell... And to get a little bit more microscopic, Red/NIR light affects the electrons inside the mitochondria during “cellular respiration”, and “cellular respiration” is the process cells go through to get energy as we mentioned….So, it helps clear out nitric oxide (NO) from the electrons inside the mitochondria during “cellular respiration”, which is a harmful roadblock to ATP production...The photons in Red/NIR light excite electrons, which helps break up nitric oxide bonds… As a result hydrogen ions can move through the process more effectively, resulting in greater levels of ATP energy that power your cells and body. Eventually, that’s how you get relief from pain and experience the positive benefits from Red/NIR light therapy… And unlike pain-killing medications, RED/NIR light therapy doesn’t block our perception of pain. Rather, it works at the cellular level to promote optimal cell functioning that results in a healthier, pain-free body. Whether it’s Arthritis Pain, Fibromyalgia, Sciatica Nerve Pain, Shoulder Soreness, Neuropathy Pain, Inflammation Pain, Joint Pain, Muscular Aches & Pains… The right RED/NIR light therapy device can help you ease your pain and feel better everyday, when you start using your red light therapy device - in most cases - you’ll start feeling immediate relief from the soothing warmth emitted by the device, and the warmth usually calms down your mind and make you feel physically relaxed while reviving your cells and helping your body heal itself... You see, Just like plants use sunlight to heal and grow… Our body is able to harness specific wavelengths of light and turn them into cellular energy… This, in turn, stimulates your body’s natural healing processes and allows you to enjoy a healthier pain-free life.

The pain conditions that RLT can potentially help you with?

While Red Light Therapy is not a “miracle cure-all” treatment, its effectiveness when it comes to easing pain is very promising, and the reason for this is because as we mentioned, unlike drugs that cover pain up by interfering with chemical signals, RED/NIR light therapy treats the source of the pain by reviving cells and relieving muscular and joint pain. From both, multiple clinical studies and our customer's feedback, RED/NIR light therapy is considered to be a safe and effective treatment for the following pain conditions: Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain: Arthritis is characterized by swelling and tenderness of the joints. There are more than two hundred rheumatic diseases that affect joints. The most common types are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Pharmaceuticals and surgery have been recommended for years as the best way to manage this disease. Doctors even prescribe vitamins, minerals and herbs, massage, electrical stimulation, and hot and cold therapy. A wealth of clinical research has shown that using Red Light therapy has a positive effect on arthritis symptoms like pain and inflammation. Red light therapy helps provide relief from arthritis through 4 means: decreasing pain, reducing inflammation, increasing circulation, and stimulating cellular repair within the joint. Reducing joint pain allows more physical activity and function, a vital factor in dealing with arthritis. Red light reduces the swelling and tenderness in joints providing greater freedom of movement and Arthritis Relief. Local red light therapy treatment of the affected joints combined with general full-body treatment has shown to generate the best results. Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia is also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). This disorder intensifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. It is a long-term condition characterized by musculoskeletal pain with fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues. While there is no cure for Fibromyalgia, Red Light Therapy (RLT) can improve this condition if the procedure is followed correctly and continuously. Red light therapy is effective in reducing pain throughout the body, particularly chronic pain and Fibromyalgia. It helps ease tiredness, improve sleep, and facilitate the production of endorphins and serotonin, which will alleviate pain and improve mood. Exercise is one essential factor for these conditions and Red light therapy will reduce pain and inflammation on your entire body, allowing you to exercise comfortably. After one week of therapy, there is often a significant reduction in pain levels and an increased ability to perform daily activities. Sciatica Nerve Pain: Inflammation of the sciatic nerve is extremely debilitating and painful. It restricts your ability to bend forward, sit for any period of time, and to carry out basic daily functions. Red Light Therapy is tremendously powerful in helping to reduce the inflammation associated with Sciatica, reducing pain and spasm in the muscles of the hip and leg, and getting you back to normal pain-free function. Neuropathy Pain: Neuropathy is a painful, irritating condition and one that is tremendously difficult to treat. Many are told it's just something you have to live with. Luckily, there is an alternative. Red Light Therapy boosts the function of all cells, including nerve cells, helping to repair the damaged neurons associated with neuropathy. Many people suffering from neuropathy find their symptoms improve when they travel to warm, sunny climates. Fortunately, LumiRed devices take the beneficial light found in sunlight and deliver it directly to your tissues, allowing you to achieve the beneficial effects of warm sunny climates in the comfort of your own home.

New product: Aduro Mask

When trying out new forms of non-invasive treatments such as light therapy, it’s extremely important that you find something that satisfies your own needs. Finding a product that suits you isn’t always as easy, which is why many of us conduct our own due diligence before trying something new.

Light therapy has been around for decades, but is making a serious comeback as its effectiveness and results become more widely known. The best part is it’s not only beneficial for gaining a youthful glow, but overall health as well. So if you’re interested in incorporating a mask into your practice, it’s time you checked out the Aduro Mask.

Our LED face mask is a light therapy device that uses different wavelengths to create 11 different treatments for many types of skin problems. It took inspiration from NASAs light therapy devices. It has 7 different LED light options, and when the selected light color penetrates the skin, photon energy is transferred to the cells. This is the basic principle of all light therapy devices.

When the light penetrates the skin, cells convert this energy into ATP (our energy source) – stimulating cellular activity and reproduction. The boosted cells improve their rate and stimulate the body’s natural rejuvenation. This leads to an increase in collagen production and the body’s natural rejuvenation processes – resulting in youthful skin and an overall improvement in your skin’s complexion. The Aduro LED light therapy is mainly for skin rejuvenation and improving skin conditions, depending on the type of light used during treatment.

For example, to treat the epidermis—the outer layer of the skin—red or infrared light is used. When applied to the epidermis, it absorbs light and stimulates collagen production. The skin, therefore, has more collagen, appears smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Whereas blue LED light therapy focuses on the sebaceous glands. These are necessary to lubricate the skin and hair, but they can also become hyperactive and lead to oily skin and acne.

The blue light under the skin also destroys the bacteria that cause acne, which can help in the treatment of severe acne, including cysts and sebaceous nodules. Blue light is often used in combination with red LED light to heal acne, reduce scars and increase anti-inflammatory effects.

And this is just an example of the power of light therapy. The Aduro facial masks offer seven different forms of light that all have their own unique healing components.

The treatments available with our LED face mask range from anti-aging to pain blockers. The mask can:

Increases hydration from the inside out
Help to even out skin pigmentation and redness
Even skin tone and clear complexion
Reduce acne
Revitalize and brighten the skin
Reduce eczema and rosacea for sensitive skin

The treatments are calming and purifying for all skin types. With our face mask, there are also options of treatments for skin above the age of 40 and a specific treatment for cell rejuvenation. Depending on your needs, you get to customize the light you want to include in your therapy treatment.

The device is so simple to use. Simply wear it for 20 minutes every evening while watching your favourite TV programme, reading a book or close your eyes and wind down from your day. Unlike other masks which are rigid plastic and uncomfortable, the Aduro is made of flexible silicone so it adapts perfectly to every face shape and feels soothing against the skin.
