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.
We are pleased to utilize red light therapy beds as a research–backed, safe way to improve sleep improvement.
Most adults need 7-9 hours of quality sleep each day to function efficiently. Between work, social activities and other day-to-day responsibilities, this can feel impossible. On top of life’s responsibilities, simply natural aging affects our ability to sleep well.
Why is sleep so crucial to health? Sleep decreases oxidative stress in our bodies. Oxidative stress can damage cells in our bodies, contributing to aging and possibly playing a role in the development of different health conditions. As we get older, we suffer from more oxidative stress in our bodies. So if your body is producing more oxidative stress, and you’re unable to get the sleep you need to combat it—well, the problem becomes clear.
Currently, there aren’t many effective sleep treatments widely available. Drug based treatments often have severe side effects. Behavioral training and meditation may help, but it also might not have any direct physiological effects. But the third option—light therapy—has shown real promise when it comes to improving sleep.
Several studies have shown light therapy has positive effects on sleep. In one study, researchers found light therapy improved the levels of serum melatonin, a hormone that promotes sleep, in the bodies of study participants. Others studies done with participants who suffer from sleep disorders or health conditions like migraines also showed great improvements in sleep habits.
So, how does it work? 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. A healthy brain equals better sleep.
While there is still research to be done, a growing body of evidence suggests light therapy can improve a person’s ability to fall asleep, remain asleep and get quality sleep. Even better, it’s a non–invasive treatment option.
