Such as: acne, psoriasis, eczema, melasma, collagen production, lines and wrinkles, elasticity, tone, age spots, wounds & scars
Such as: Arthritis, back & neck pain, carpal tunnel, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy
Muscle and Joint Soreness
And so much More!
How Does Red Light Work?
Also known as photobiomodulation, Red LIght Therapy is a non-invasive holistic wellness option that uses different wavelengths of light to stimulate blood circulation and cellular activity. .
Mitochondria are the “powerhouses” that live in our cells and are responsible for generating the bulk of the energy that our body needs. As we age, or encounter health issues, our mitochondria may not produce the energy we need for maximum health and recovery. When exposed to red and Infrared light, the photons emitted penetrate the skin and body. This stimulates and strengthens the mitochondrial function and increases our cellular energy, and facilitates improved health and wellness.
What Do We Use?
Our system uses Full body LED panels covering both the front and back of your body with 2400 bulbs for maximum coverage and benefit. It combines 6 different wavelengths of light that have been carefully researched and studied to give you the optimal benefit for therapeutic and regenerative results.
For more surface and skin penetration.
Our bulbs offer wavelengths of:
630 nm (20%) & 660 nm (80%)
Combining the two wavelengths offer different levels of penetration with the longer ones amplifying the effects of the shorter ones.
For deeper penetration into the tissues, muscles, and bones, also offering different benefits at different wavelengths.
Our bulbs offer wavelengths of:
810 nm (10%), 830 nm (10%), and
850 nm (78%)
And trace Blue Light -
For very surface skin issues such as acne 480 nm (2%)
Brief LED Light Therapy Timeline
Ancient Civilizations worship and use the sun for thousands of years as a powerful agent for the benefit of life, wellness, and strength “Heliotherapy”
1818 - Jean-Etienne Dominique Esquirol is one of the first contemporary doctors to recognize the importance of sunlight for the mentally ill. He aids in the design of hospitals to have maximum open sun spaces for the treatment of the patients.
1855 - Arnold Rikki, a natural healer, develops helio-hydroscopic centers for treatments with water, air, and “most of all the sunlight.”
1876/1877 - Dr. Edwin Babbit publishes “The Principles of Light and Color” / Dr. Seth Pancoast publishes “Blue and Red Light.” Treatments using light and color begin to advance.
1879 - Thomas Edison invents the light bulb
1896 - Dr. Niels Ryberg Finsen works with and uses artificial UV light therapy to treat smallpox and Lupus Vulgaris (a type of tuberculosis) awarding him the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1903
Early 1900’s - Dr. Augustine Rollier, coined “The Sun Doctor,” opens up to 36 “sun sanitoriums” (Wellness centers for disease treatments) in Switzerland to treat tuberculosis as well as other diseases with sunlight. Therapeutic sun sanatoriums rise throughout Europe.
1920’s - 1940’s - Dinshah Ghadiali and his trained professionals use his treatment called Spectro-Chrome therapy (healing with different color beams of light) to successfully heal thousands of people from many different diseases (though at the time, his knowledge and practice was controversial)
1961 - Robert Biard and Gary Pitman invent first infrared LED “Light Emitting Diode”
1962 - Nick Holonyak Jr. invents the first visible light LED
1960’s - LED lights are used in Eastern Europe to treat chronic pain, soft tissue injuries and other medical issues. Light therapy and holistic healing approaches don’t progress quickly as the rise and use of antibiotics and pharmaceuticals take the forefront for medical treatments.
1990’s - NASA researches red light in space with the goal to grow plants. Not only did it stimulate plant growth, but as a byproduct, they found that it also accelerated wound healing and reduced muscle atrophy for the space crews. Many studies and scientific research continue
2002 - FDA approves first Device for Red Light Therapy. Cost, knowledge and availability prevent it from quickly making it to the mainstream.
Today: Red Light Therapy is mainstream with proven benefits for health and wellness
