Red Light Therapy

Red Light Therapy

What is it?

Light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses light emitted from LEDs to deliver wavelengths of red and near infrared (NIR) light to the skin and cells. There are two primary ways to use light therapy treatments along with exercise and training: either before you work out, or after. You can pre-condition with light therapy before exercise to support stronger muscle performance. and you can use light therapy after an exercise session, or after every exercise session as a part of your training routine. Post-exercise light therapy speeds the recovery process by accelerating your muscle adaptation to exercise and helps the body process acute inflammation from working out.

Benefits

1) Performance and Recovery

Red Light Therapy treatments improvement in cellular ATP energy synthesis, glycogen synthesis, oxidative stress reduction, protection against exercise induced-muscle damage, and the addition of new myonuclei supporting muscle hypertrophy. Light therapy also supports healing and recovery by improving blood flow and oxygen availability.

2) Increased Mental Accuity

A sharp mind requires a balanced cellular environment throughout the body. Light therapy is one way to ensure you get the healthy light you need for cellular balance, healthy sleep, and the best possible mental acuity.

3) Reduce Inflammation

Red and NIR (Near Infra Red) light have been shown to stimulate the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell, and can optimize the cellular respiration process that makes ATP (adenosine triphosphate) energy, which increases function, speeds healing, and can reduce inflammation & discomfort.

4) Improved Blood Flow

One of the potential benefits of red light therapy is a significant increase in blood circulation following treatment sessions, indicating tissues are receiving more oxygen and other nutrients important for healing. Light also helps the body and circulatory system rid itself of toxic byproducts.

5) Weight Loss

Increased circulation has been linked to increased fat burning specifically in brown fat, which is a type of body fat that is activated when your body temperature drops. Brown fat helps maintain your body temperature by producing heat

6) Improved Skin Health

Red Light Therapy has the potential to reduce oxidative stress, and increase blood flow to damaged & inflamed tissues. This can help skin tissue regenerate and heal faster, reducing inflammation and improving overall body balance.

What to expect from your Red Light Therapy Session

Elysian Recovery offers two different red light therapy treatment options: Standard Red Light Therapy and the Near Infra Red Light Therapy. The standard session consists of 10 – 20 minutes in one our Red Light Suits. Both use red light wavelengths to penetrate the outer layer of skin, giving the cells energy to increase healing and reduce inflammation. It is important to note that you do have to be undressed for the red light to be absorbed by your skin. Of course, you can also choose just to have certain parts of your body undergo treatment. We also recommend you wear protective goggles to shield your eyes from any damage.
