What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light used in therapy is used mainly at one wavelength of light (660nm) emitted from super-luminous light emitting diodes that penetrate the skin without causing pain or damage, to indue certain physiological responses in the body.

Red light therapy is a natural therapy promoting the body's own immune responses, its own method of controlling pain and its own healing abilities. Red light therapy uses the energy of light to produce a therapeutic effect.

Red light therapy (or photonic therapy) is the use of red light on muscular tissues and areas of increased electrical activity, known as acupoints, in order to effect areas of the body in a certain way. Red light therapy is painless and safe and can be used alone or in conjunction with other therapies.
