Learn how red light therapy may support weight loss efforts.
While the research behind red light therapy and its correlation with weight loss continues to grow and expand, one thing is abundantly clear: red light therapy promotes cellular health.
One of the ways red light promotes cellular health is by boosting the presence of collagen in cells. Collagen is a protein that has gained popularity in the past decade for its beneficial effects on skin and nails. It also helps the body heal from injuries and replace damaged tissue.
By boosting the collagen in your cells, red light therapy helps your body heal faster and reduces recovery time after injuries. Additionally, boosting collagen can aid in muscle recovery post-workout. When increasing your exercise routine for weight loss, the added collagen and light therapy can promote fat-burning in your cells. Exercising can be more enjoyable if your body doesn’t ache while you work to keep it healthy.
By decreasing inflammation, light therapy also reduces oxidative stress in the body. This type of stress is thought to contribute to weight gain and obesity due to its effects on hunger hormones and metabolism.
We often eat or crave certain foods because we need an energy boost. Food works to fuel our bodies and keep cells functioning properly. This is why focusing on nutrient-rich foods is critical to overall health. Eating regular, healthy meals and indulging strategically in foods with high sugar and unhealthy fat content can lead to the balanced lifestyle required to sustain weight loss.
Light therapy can increase cellular energy levels, decreasing the desire to reach for foods that will spike blood sugar and contribute to weight gain. Red light that enters tissues is absorbed by a cell’s mitochondria and converted to a compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This compound is responsible for stimulating cell function, which can aid in restoring energy levels throughout the body.
Light therapy combined with healthy eating has also been shown to reduce insulin resistance and balance your metabolism. Finally, studies have shown that red light therapy can target stubborn fat areas and work to reduce waist circumference when combined with a healthy diet.
While light therapy alone is not a permanent solution for obesity or weight loss, it can help support your weight loss journey and encourage the targeted shedding of fat cells. Light Lounge offers excellent treatment packages to introduce red light weight loss.
Back and spine injuries often make exercising an impossible chore, which can pose an obstacle when making the necessary lifestyle changes for weight loss. Red light therapy increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and supports cell healing to recover from injuries.
Back injuries can occur after straining repetitively for long days, weeks, and even years. Losing weight can take pressure off your back and spine, but you need a healthy back to exercise regularly and promote weight loss.
Red light therapy is a non-invasive alternative procedure for surgery that utilizes light and heat to encourage cell repair. The light stimulates blood flow to bring oxygen-rich blood to areas affected by pain and injury. By increasing circulation, red light brings more nutrients to affected areas while promoting the removal of toxins and waste that can inhibit healing.
An essential part of reducing pain is reducing inflammation. Inflammation is the immune system’s response to infection and injury, but too much inflammation can cause additional discomfort. Red light therapy encourages cell repair, allowing the body to slow the inflammatory response and prevent the cycle of inflammation from attacking healthy cells when the body is attempting to heal.
Red light therapy has also been proven to reduce chronic inflammation and swelling caused by chronic illness or genetic disorders such as Osteoarthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Bursitis. By working to heal the body, patients have often observed an increased range of motion and speedier recovery time.
You can focus on building healthy habits when your back and spine feel healthy and pain-free. Participating in strength training and targeted exercise programs can maintain weight and keep your back and spine healthy for the long term. Red light can be essential in cell health and pain management, keeping you healthy and exercising year-round.

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.
