15 Reasons Why You Should Add Red Light Therapy To Your 2023 Self-Care Routines

15 Reasons Why You Should Add Red Light Therapy To Your 2023 Self-Care Routines

Whether adding red light therapy to boost your collagen production or increase your energy levels, adding red light therapy to your self-care routines may be one of the smartest decisions you make all year.

If you are not, read the blog below, which covers the top 15 reasons it makes sense to do that.


Here is a small summary of what red light therapy does:

Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation (PBMT), helps body cells heal by boosting cellular energy production.

Specifically, red light penetrates deep into the tissue to reach damaged cells and stimulate the mitochondria inside those cells. This improves energy production in ways that reduces inflammation, speeds healing, and alleviates pain.

Red Light Therapy Or Red Infrared Light Therapy offers many amazing benefits, but here are our top reasons why you should regularly do red light or photobiomodulation therapy as part of your self-care routine.


1. Reduce Inflammation

Inflammation seems to be a common concern in our society and for good reason! Chronic inflammation is an early warning sign for illness, disease and decline in mental health.

This could be one of the most important benefits! Red Light Therapy is FDA approved to reduce inflammation, and when you use a full-body Red Light Therapy bed, you get anti-inflammatory benefits from brain to toes without taking medication.

Red Light works at the cellular level, and it helps damaged cells accept nutrients and recover quicker while eliminating toxins faster, reducing inflammation.


2. Reduce Pain

Near-infrared Light penetrates the deep tissues of the body stimulating the cells in the muscles, nerves, and bones to release nitric oxide. This bio-chemical process triggers pain relief benefits. Red Light also facilitates the production of endorphins that act as a pain reliever.

When you include the anti-inflammatory and cellular repair benefits of RLT, you give the body a fighting chance for healing. Conditions like Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Traumatic Brain Injury and Neuropathy greatly improve symptoms when treated with RLT.


3. Drug-Free & No Side Effects

Red Light uses specific wavelengths of non-harming red and near-infrared light. No burn, no extreme heat, sessions are comfortable, relaxing and boost overall health without negative side effects.


4. Red Light is Safe

If you are tired of popping pills for pain and inflammation management, give Red Light Therapy a try. Red Light is a healthier way to feel better naturally with no negative side effects! No liver damage, no stomach irritation, no constipation. Natural, safe, and effective, whole-body healing.


5. Super-Charge your Workouts

Increase the intensity of your workouts! Run faster, longer and increase muscle mass quicker. Most athletes notice a huge improvement in endurance and performance while training with red light.

Olympic and top-level athletes use red light therapy to enhance training. A certain 2016 U.S. Olympic team had a red-light therapy bed shipped to the Rio Olympics. When the cargo was stuck in customs, the Secretary of State had to get involved to ensure the precious cargo was delivered in time to keep the athletes performing at their best.


6. Recover Faster

Run faster AND recover faster! With the improved circulation and reduced inflammation from RLT, athletes recover quicker. A quick session after an intense workout will reduce inflammation, take the sting out of sore muscles and boost recovery time so athletes can train harder.


7. Increase Circulation

FDA approved to increase circulation, Red Light is scientifically proven to increase the size of blood vessels and stimulate the growth of capillaries or small new blood vessels.

Increased circulation along with the enhanced cellular oxygen absorption, helps heal wounds and reduce inflammation quicker. Areas of the body with low and poor circulation like the lower legs and feet can greatly benefit from RLT treatments.


8. Deeply Relaxing

When is the last time you had 15 quiet minutes to yourself, laying horizontal, with no disruptions?

Treatments in a red-light therapy bed are warm (not hot) comfortable and meditative. Sessions are typically less than 20 minutes, but just enough time to power nap and shake off the stress of the day.


9. Increase Energy & Fight Chronic Fatigue

Red Light Therapy boosts energy production at the cellular level. When the cells work better, the entire body works better. Chronic Fatigue symptoms can be dramatically improved with consistent treatments. Red Light is known to increase endurance and energy levels.


10. Scientifically Researched

Thousands of research studies have been conducted on red light therapy, and the research says… it’s good!

To learn more about specific Red Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation), and research topics, visit PubMed. (see PubMed + Photobiomodulation), include your topic of choice in the search bar.


11. Cool Backstory!

Initially, NASA used red light to grow plants…(dramatic pause)… in space.

For years, the red light was only available in handheld laser devices to treat small areas of the body. After years of seeing huge benefits in treating a variety of conditions, clinicians started asking for a device to treat the entire body.

That dream is now available. Full-body red light therapy devices effectively treat the entire body in under 20 minutes.


12. Treat Traumatic Brain Injury – TBI

Near-Infrared Light passes through bone and penetrates to the tissues of the brain. Treatments stimulate, regenerate and preserves brain tissue and neurons while reducing inflammation helpful for mild Traumatic Brain Injury.


13. Improved Cognitive Function & Brain Health

Support brain health by improving blood flow and oxygenation, regrow neurons and protect neurons from damage while reducing inflammation and repairing cells.Treatments can help boost memory, promote faster learning and process complex problems quickly.


14. Humans Need Light to Thrive

Human cells have photon (light) receptors. We need light to thrive! Our modern indoor lifestyle means most humans do not get enough light for our bodies to operate at optimum levels.

One to two Red Light Therapy sessions weekly is enough to keep the body operating at ideal levels.


15. Reverse Oxidative Stress

Let’s get technical.

Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. Both molecules are necessary for normal, healthy reactions in the body, but an excess of either can cause damage. Free radicals are highly unstable and reactive, they cause damage to the body’s proteins, fatty tissue, and DNA. Damage by free radicals can affect cellular function and cause apoptosis, also referred to as programmed cell death.

While our bodies’ cells regularly die and get replaced, prolonged damage by oxidative stress has been linked to a variety of diseases such as diabetes, cancer, inflammatory conditions, and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Oxidative stress also contributes to aging and can affect skin collagen production and elasticity, causing wrinkles.


Red Light Therapy reverses oxidative stress and triggers repair at the cellular level.


You Get it All!

Does Red Light Therapy sound too good to be true? Well, it isn’t.

With a little upfront investment in time (a few times a week for a 3 months minimum), continued maintenance is 1 to 2 sessions a week!

You get ALL the benefits!
