Red light therapy is a low-level light therapy that became popular in recent years due to its health benefits. Red light therapy exposes the skin to low levels of red and near-infrared light, which promotes cellular repair and regeneration. Though promoted for its body contouring and anti-aging benefits, clients pursue reglar treatment for many surprising reasons. Let’s explore three of the most surprising benefits of red light:
- Improves cognitive function
Red light therapy improves cognitive function. Several studies show that exposure to red and near-infrared light can enhance cognitive function, including memory, attention, and reaction time. Red light therapy increases blood flow to the brain, delivering oxygen and nutrients to brain cells while promoting cellular growth. In addition, treatment may help reduce brain inflammation, which correlates with cognitive decline. Improved cognitive function can help alleviate symptoms of ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, PTSD, and other mental health concerns. Our clients report improved mood, stress response, motivation, and general positive outlook from receiving biweekly red light treatment.
- Reduces inflammation
Many of our regular clients seek red light treatment to help with post-workout recovery and arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis. Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but health problems like heart disease and diabetes lead to chronic inflammation. Low-level light therapy produces anti-inflammatory cytokines, which reduces inflammation in the body and helps regulate the immune system. It can also help reduce oxidative stress, which is a key contributor to inflammation. Red light therapy is thus a top notch chronic pain relief treatment.
- Improves sleep quality
Clients love improved sleep quality as a result of semiweekly red light treatment. Red and near-infrared light exposure can help regulate one’s circadian rhythm — the internal biological clock that controls sleep-wake cycles. Red light therapy can also help promote the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. By treating insomnia and improving sleep quality, red light therapy can help reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance overall well-being.
Red light therapy offers many surprising benefits beyond its well-known weight loss and skin rejuvenation benefits. From improving cognition and reducing inflammation to insomnia relief, red light is a powerful tool for overall health and well-being.
