What is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is a treatment using 630/660 nanometer wavelength red light and 830/850 nanometer wavelength near infrared light to promote healthy skin, muscle recovery, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, and much more.
Benefits of Red Light Therapy:
- Increasing collagen production may reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin health.
- Increasing blood flow can speed recovery from workouts and increase performance.
- Reducing inflammation can help decrease muscle soreness, aches, and other minor pains.
- Increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation may improve several other conditions such as acne, psoriasis, joint pain, and hair loss.
Who Can Benefit From Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is for anyone who is looking to improve skin health, increase performance, or reduce inflammation.
Who Should Not Use Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is proven safe for a wide range of people, but if you have any conditions that are negatively affected by increased blood flow and cellular production we do NOT recommend using red light therapy. Conditions that may be negatively affected by red light therapy include hyperthyroidism, lupus, cancer, eye disease, and light sensitivity.

What is Red Light and Near Infrared Light?
Red and near infrared light are part of the electromagnetic spectrum and more specifically part of the spectrum of light emitted by the sun. These wavelengths of light are “bioactive” in humans. Below is a chart outlining the electromagnetic spectrum:
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red light therapy boosts cellular energy production. The most well studied mechanism of action surrounding red and near infrared light therapy is increased mitochondrial energy production in the cells. Mitochondria are tiny organelles that are the energy power plants of all the cells in our body. Red and near infrared light therapy helps the mitochondria create more energy. The specific photons found in red and near infrared light interact with a photoreceptor within our cells called cytochrome c oxidase. This interaction stimulates the mitochondria in our cells to use oxygen more efficiently which allows the mitochondria to produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Adenosine triphosphate is a complex organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells such as muscle contractions, nerve impulses, and chemical synthesis. Found in all forms of life, ATP is often referred to as the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer. When our cells have more energy, processes in the body simply work more efficiently.
The Benefits of Red Light
Red light between 600-700 nanometers promotes collagen production which can result in improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and overall healthier skin and hair.
The Benefits of Near-Infrared Light
Near-infrared light (NIR) 700-1100 nanometers penetrates deeper into the tissues to assist with wound healing, muscle recovery, and joint
