How Does Red Light and Near Infrared Therapy Work?

People have reported a variety of benefits from red light therapy and near infrared therapy in recent years, including less pain and improved skin health. But how exactly does it work? The science underlying red light and near infrared treatment will be examined in greater detail in this blog post, along with how it might enhance our health and wellbeing.

The Science of Red Light and Near Infrared Therapy

  1. Red and near-infrared light are absorbed by cells in the body, where they set off a chain of events that aid in healing and rejuvenation.
  2. Red and near-infrared light energy is absorbed by the mitochondria, the structures in our cells that produce energy. This process is known as mitochondrial stimulation. Energy levels are raised and cell healing is encouraged by this stimulation.
  3. Increased Blood Flow: The body's cells absorb red and near-infrared light, which boosts circulation and helps cells operate better by supplying them with nutrients and oxygen.
  4. Reduced Inflammation: Studies have shown that red light and near infrared therapy can reduce inflammation, which is a major contributor to a number of medical disorders, including pain, skin conditions, and even heart disease.
  5. Improved Cellular Function: Red light and near infrared therapy can assist to improve the general function of our cells by increasing blood flow, boosting energy levels, and lowering inflammation. This may result in greater health and happiness as well as a lessening of many conditions' symptoms.

How to Incorporate Red Light and Near Infrared Therapy into Your Daily Routine

  1. Devices: There are a variety of red light and near infrared therapy devices on the market, such as the Handheld Devices, Big Banks (full-body panels), Target Lights and Flex Pads available at RED LAB. Choose the one that best fits your needs and budget.
  2. Frequency: To see the best results, aim for at least 3-5 sessions per week, and adjust based on your individual needs.
  3. Duration: Each session should last between 10-30 minutes, depending on the size and strength of the device.
  4. Distance: Keep the device at the recommended distance from your skin, as specified by the manufacturer.
  5. Focus: When using the device for specific conditions, such as pain or skin health, focus the device on the affected area.

In conclusion, red light and near infrared therapy work by absorbing energy from light into our cells, which triggers a series of beneficial reactions that promote healing and rejuvenation. Whether you're looking to reduce pain, improve skin health, or boost energy levels, red light and near infrared therapy can help. So why not try incorporating it into your daily routine and see the difference it can make in your life?
