Light therapy tackles inflammation in the body caused by oxidative stress. Alleviating inflammation can help you achieve a more “restful” sleep state by helping your brain recover.
Red light therapy is a newer technology featured in many recent studies looking into the possible benefits of red light therapy for human health. Based on the results of many of those studies, red lights have quickly grown into a valuable resource for humans as a supplemental healthy lifestyle practice.
Although more research is needed to fully understand all the possible uses and outcomes for red light, there have already been many beneficial uses discovered and documented. We now know red light is beneficial in the following ways:
While each of these benefits alone is of value, together they all play a role in helping an individual achieve better and improved sleep. For this reason, the red light therapy beds are an excellent option if you are in need of a safe health practice that will improve the quality of your sleep.
Red light therapy has been called many different things including photobiomodulation and low-level laser therapy. This kind of light therapy is a non-invasive treatment used to boost an individual's exposure to red and near-infrared light. This kind of light is beneficial to an individual on a cellular level. Human beings require the acquisition of energy both from food and from sunlight. Red light therapy is a great option because it not only provides one with the photons that aid your mitochondria in energy production, but it also does not contain the harmful UV rays that cause damage to the skin.
In this day and age, it is difficult to find enough time outside and away from our blue-lit screens. Smartphones, computers, and TV screens all operate with blue light. This light is known to have a negative impact on our sleep and can confuse our body's circadian rhythm.
Although we may understand our use of these devices is hindering our sleep, there may be more realistic options than removing blue light from our daily tasks. This is where red light therapy can become a useful tool. Red light therapy can be used to improve the body's circadian rhythm, increase relaxation, and provide a counterbalance to the blue light that we are exposed to throughout the day. Melatonin and serotonin are two hormones that are important for sleep regulation. Red light, unlike blue light, does not suppress melatonin. It can also play a role in boosting serotonin levels while lowering cortisol (another hormone that can have a negative impact on sleep when elevated).
One research study in 2012 found that a group of female athletes had improved sleep and melatonin production with red light therapy. Additionally, a 2019 study found red light was beneficial to the circadian rhythms of participants. The red light therapy beds provide whole-body exposure to red light that is sure to give you an extra edge for improved sleep.
"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.
Not all lights are created equal. Red light therapy is truly a mild, safe and non-invasive technique that can be used to improve your sleep. However, to have the most effective outcome you want to trust the technology you use. It must be held to a high safety standard and be designed with the correct wavelengths to achieve the desired therapeutic effects.
At Light Lounge it is our business to know and provide red light therapy that is up-to-date with the latest science. Light Lounge is a trusted provider of red light therapy.
