But what is the science of Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy is an every-day term for the science of photobiomodulation.
Red light therapy is a natural, alternative therapy with a long list of benefits and no known adverse side effects. To put it very simply, red light therapy is the practice of shining the proper milliwatts in the proper spectrum of red light in a prescribed way in order to make you look younger, heal faster, reduce pain and/or bring overall balance to your energy and endocrine systems. And yes, it works!
What red light therapy is depends on who you ask. There are two very different ways to look at it: first, from the viewpoint of Western traditional medicine; and second, from the viewpoint of Eastern, energy medicine.
Red Light Therapy & Western Medicine
Western traditional medicine likes to deal with what we can measure in a lab and prove to the FDA. Once NASA came down with undeniable wound healing results from red light therapy, conventional medicine started paying attention. Over 10 years later, red light therapy has now been thoroughly researched and FDA approved for anti-aging and pain relief, with wound care applications soon to follow.
Western doctors and researchers often call red light therapy by other names such as:
- LLLT (low level laser or low level light therapy)
- LILT (low intensity light therapy)
- photonic stimulation
- and others
How Red Light Therapy Works
Visible red light is capable of penetrating the skin to a depth of about 8 to 10 mm. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to cellular energy, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level and kicking off a whole series of metabolic events, including:
- Increased circulation and the formation of new capillaries.
- Increased lymph system activity.
- Increased production of collagen and fibroblasts.
- Increased release of ATP, or raw cellular energy.
- Increased phagocytosis, or cellular clean up.
- Tissue granulation stimulated.
- Inflammation reduced.
Red Light Therapy & Eastern Medicine
Red light therapy is also used in Eastern medicine practices which focus on the energy systems of the body, specifically meridian points and chakra zones. For example, “Colorpuncture” uses a narrow beam of red light to stimulate acupuncture points instead of needles. Red light therapy could also be called red color therapy and used to fuel overall vitality.
While western science and eastern medicine may not often agree, the facts remain: light is energy and our bodies use energy. Red and infrared light energy penetrate deep into the body and have profound effects in the hands of both western and eastern healing professionals alike.
