You’re probably aware of the power of light to influence your health and wellness. The right amount of sunlight is critical to your eye health, mental health, and the production of vitamin D. Too much ultraviolet light, however, can cause skin cancer.
Red light therapy is a powerful treatment that uses a different type of light, called red or near-infrared light, to trigger positive physiological changes. This treatment is also called photobiomodulation.
Red and near-infrared light are included in the spectrum of light emitted from the sun, and are also found in fire. Unlike most types of light, certain wavelengths of red and near-infrared light can penetrate deep within your body and to the cells of your bones, brain, nerves, and blood.
Red light therapy addresses many different health issues. Some of the demonstrated benefits include:
These are just some of the areas where red light therapy yields impressive improvements.
There are several ways red light therapy creates positive cellular changes in your body. The first is by reducing oxidative stress. Red light therapy promotes antioxidant production, which helps fight cell injury and protect cells from early death.
Your circulation also increases after red light therapy sessions. That means your cells get more oxygen and nutrients, and eliminate toxic byproducts at a faster rate.
Red light therapy also boosts new collagen production. That new layer of cells smooths and plumps your skin, and is the basis for the aesthetic benefits of this therapeutic approach.
Joint health is another area where red light therapy yields impressive results. Red light improves your lymphatic function, which reduces inflammation. Because inflammation is a leading cause of joint pain, it’s no surprise that red light therapy helps treat arthritis.
Even your sleep can improve with red light therapy, which works to improve the release of melatonin. Red light therapy even helps control your hunger and boost your weight-loss efforts.
Finally, red light therapy enhances energy production to help your body work more efficiently. That can lead to less fatigue, better performance, and swifter muscle recovery.
The team at FoRM Health PDX offers state-of-the-art red light therapy sessions as both stand-alone treatments or in conjunction with other anti-aging and regenerative therapies. Sessions take just 20-30 minutes, are painless, and require no advance preparation or downtime.
