Red Light Therapy

What is it?

A therapy that uses a very specific low-level wavelength of light that is red. The red light cannot be felt and does not generate heat. Through the stimulation of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate – a key factor in cellular regeneration), multiple benefits can be appreciated.

How does it work?

The red light stimulates an effect in your cells that strengthens the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the areas within your cells where energy is created. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

The red light is thought to increase the function of the mitochondria and thereby increase the production of ATP, providing your cells with more energy. This means that they can function more efficiently, the cells can rejuvenate themselves, and repair damage.

The Benefits

Muscle growth & Performance

Research demonstrates that there are  significant gains in muscle size, strength, endurance and speed. You can read all about it in the below research papers.

Sports Recovery

Regular use of red light therapy treatments have proven to reduce muscle soreness and lessen fatigue. This therefore reduces the likelihood of injury. Tissue healing and repair is also improved. Please see the supporting scientific evidence below.

Pain Relief

RLT has been shown to reduce rheumatoid arthritic pain by up to 70%!! Regular therapies have also shown to relieve pain and inflammation in tendonitis and improve joint health.

Sleep & Relaxation

Red light therapy has been shown to increase the bodies own melatonin production in the skin and in the brain. This aids sleep and relaxation. Another effect of this process is to enhance your mood.


RLT drives the cells of our bodies to boost  production of endogenous anti inflammatories and anti oxidants which get released into our blood to circulate through our entire bodies.


Red Light Therapy is well known to promote collagen production in our skin cells. The benefits of this include:

  • Improved healing for slow healing wounds.
  • Reduced effects of psoriasis
  • Improved skin complexion and diminishing wrinkles
  • Sun damage repair

Results show the balancing of natural hormone production in the body, including thyroid hormones and mood boosting hormones. Some studies are also showing an improvement in sex hormones in men and women.

Healthy Eyes

RLT is wonderful for your eyes. The therapy can decrease inflammation in your eyes . It can also slow and in some cases, stop degeneration.


Red Light Therapy is great for stimulating and maintaining hair growth. Research has shown that RLT may extend hair growing time, improving hair thickness. Research has suggested that it may even prevent male and female pattern balding, particularly with those suffering from androgenic alopecia.

Recent trials are showing amazing results for RLT and brain health with positive effects on improved executive function and enhanced recall memory. RLT also has great benefits for sufferers of dementia and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and concussions.
