What is Red Light Therapy and How is it Beneficial?

Are you looking for a painless and relaxing treatment that is comfortable and can help reduce inflammation, pain, increase skin health, hair growth, and more? Look no further! Red light therapy, commonly referred to as RLT, is a recovery treatment that utilizes low-wavelength red light to increase energy production all while reducing damage caused by an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. While red light therapy may not be an overnight fix, when it is consistently used for over or around a month, the results will make you feel and look better! If you are interested in red light therapy, our performance recovery experts here at The Body Remedy have put together a list of our top benefits of this amazing treatment!

Top Benefits of Red Light Therapy

Injury Recovery:

Red light therapy helps stimulate the mitochondria in your cells, driving up the ATP in your body, and aiding in muscle growth and repair after a long day at work or a tough workout. This in turn helps ease that tough post-workout soreness or pain that you may endure.

Neurological Benefits:

Not only does red light therapy help ease pain from workouts or a tough day at the office, but the 810 NM wavelength can give your body several neurological benefits. This includes recovery from possible brain injuries, headaches, or constant migraines.

Better Skin Health:

Because of its rejuvenating properties, and ability to stimulate collagen production, red light therapy is an excellent way to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne and eczema flare ups.

Increased Hair Growth:

If you are currently facing hair loss, red light therapy is an excellent way to increase the growth of your hair. This is because red light decreases inflammation in your scalp and in turn promotes blood flow to your head and hair, allowing the hair follicles to get more oxygen and nutrients, promoting growth over time.

Other Benefits:

Accelerated bone growth, increased bone health, reduced fine lines, decreased joint stiffness, faster return to play post-injury, and more!
