Learn how LED light therapy can boost your health at a cellular level.
The human body is full of various different types of cells, all working to perform the processes that sustain life, such as healing or converting oxygen to energy. In fact, trillions of cells are constantly working to make life possible. The cell is the smallest unit of life, and within the cell there are many working parts. LED light therapy interacts with the mitochondria and the ATP of the cells.
The mitochondria is known as the powerhouse of the cell. This is because the mitochondria generates chemical energy that is then used for the rest of the cell’s functions. Red light therapy works to increase the number of mitochondria and to activate the mitochondria, thus producing more cellular energy and boosting the function of the cells.
ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is the molecule that stores energy within the cells — the energy produced by the mitochondria. Many cell types require high amounts of ATP to perform, such as healing a cut or building muscles. Red light therapy can help increase the levels of ATP energy so your cells work and function more efficiently. Red light therapy also helps reduce cellular inflammation, allowing for more efficient cellular processes.
While LED light therapy is certainly beneficial for aging individuals who are excited about the anti-aging properties for their skin, this type of therapy can improve the health of individuals of all ages. By making cellular processes more efficient and effective, red light therapy can improve:
Clearly, LED light therapy offers benefits that range far beyond appearances. Individuals of all ages can improve their overall wellbeing thanks to the impacts of red light therapy on cellular health.
"The Light Lounge has been my savior. I had a bad ski accident about two years ago and I wasn't healing well. By the 5th session the pain was gone."
"I was referred to Light Lounge by my physical therapist, I would absolutely recommend this to family and friends."
"I have been coming to Light Lounge almost every day for two years. The joint pain I used to get in my shoulders is gone."
"I have had issues with my blood pressure for a little over two years. It comes down for about 3 days after I have been to Light Lounge."
"In the last year and a half I have had two knee replacement surgeries on the same knee. I had been frustrated with my pain and recovery, that's when I found Light Lounge. I no longer have to strongly rely on my opioid medication."
When light that is in the red, near infrared, and infrared spectra is applied to the body, inflammation and pain are decreased, and healing is accelerated. Light therapy does this by reducing excessive oxidative stress at the cellular level with no documented nor reported negative side effects.
From folks who are suffering from chronic pain (light therapy can alleviate pain without drugs) to people who want to get more out of their training (light therapy can help increase performance and decrease recovery time).
Clinical trials and 4000 laboratory studies demonstrate that light therapy (also called photobiomodulation) has no negative side effects. It has been proven to heal soft tissue injuries, help with TBI, relieve pain without using harmful drugs and painkillers. For more evidence based information please see our BLOG.
