What is Infrared Light Therapy?

Infrared light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is invisible to the human eye. It is present in sunlight and is responsible for the warmth we feel on our skin when exposed to the sun.  It has a longer wavelength than visible light, which means it has less energy. This gentle, radiant energy is generated into heat from different wavelengths. Infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. Scientists have established that infrared waves are beneficial to the human body as the thermal energy within the body is increased. Infrared light does this without any of the harmful rays of sunlight.

The different spectrums are defined by the wavelength, with near-infrared being the closest to red light and far infrared being the furthest. Some infrared wavelengths can penetrate deeply into the muscles and tissues within the body.​

These light spectrums generate heat within the sauna cabin and are gently absorbed by the body creating a therapeutic effect. This is known as  Infrared  Light Therapy.  

What is Chromotherapy?

 

Color Light therapy, also known as Chromotherapy, is a technique of restoring balance by applying color to the body. This light therapy uses colors for their proposed wellness abilities in treating emotional and physical disturbances. Light therapy is based on the premise that different colors evoke different responses in people. For example, some colors are considered to be stimulating, whereas others may be soothing. Color therapy has been suggested for many uses, based on tradition or scientific theories.

 

This rejuvenating LED light therapy can also be used for temporary pain management such as joint and back pain, sore or torn muscles, sprains, arthritis, post-surgical scars, burns, wounds, and more. Its healing power also uses different colored lights to promote relaxation and wellness. Each color in the spectrum has its unique benefits. Red, for example, can boost energy levels and improve circulation, while blue can calm the mind and alleviate stress. When used with infrared therapy it is one of the most effective and noninvasive ways to improve overall wellness.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photo-biomodulation, utilizes red, near-infrared, and sometimes Blue light, in conjunction with one another to penetrate the skin and stimulate rejuvenation at the cellular level. It is a natural treatment known for its non-invasive nature.

Red light therapy encompasses the use of visible (630-660nm) red wavelengths; invisible near-infrared wavelengths (810-850nm) and invisible infrared wavelengths (1060nm). It can also include Blue light wavelengths (480nm). When delivered within the optimal wavelengths and energy levels, red and near-infrared light is an innovative method to improve your overall well-being.

Only red light can reach into a cell’s mitochondria to stimulate healing and regeneration. This process stimulates collagen production, improves blood circulation, and reduces inflammation, causing a ripple effect that enhances overall health and contributes to faster healing. 
Near-infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin, aiding in reducing inflammation, promoting healing, and improving overall skin health.

Blue light, often included in combination with red light therapy, is known for its ability to treat acne and other skin conditions. It helps kill bacteria on the skin and reduces oil production.

 

 Many have reported positive results from RLT, such as increased muscle recovery, improved skin tone and texture, reduced joint pain, and accelerated weight loss
