Red Light therapy (also known as photobiomodulation – PBM) is a simple, yet powerful non-invasive treatment that delivers red and near infrared (NIR) light to your skin and cells. Red light therapy is just like the wavelengths of light your body needs from sunlight, but without the heat or UV rays that may cause sun damage.
The session does not require anything other than exposing your skin and sitting or laying in front of the device and letting your body absorb the light. This is a great time to meditate, read, or relax all while receiving high–quality red light therapy.
Our clients see positive improvements in acne, hair growth, and fading scars, sleep quality, inflammation reduction, improved recovery, improved blood sugar & insulin sensitivity and so much more! The red light helps cells repair themselves and become healthier. This spurs healing at a cellular level and improves all aspects of health.
Although Red Light has a lot of benefits, it‘s not recommended if you need a quick remedy to skin diseases and other medical problems. This treatment DOES produce long–term results like better sleep quality, skin improvement, scar healing, reducing inflammation, and more. Talk with one of our Vitality professionals or Functional Medicine providers about how red light therapy can benefit you!

How does red light therapy work?
The short answer is that our cells get an energy boost when they absorb natural light, especially red wavelengths at 660 nm and near infrared wavelengths at 850 nm. A large base of clinical research has found that this leads to enhanced ATP energy production, increased collagen production, reduced oxidative stress, faster muscle recovery, and a lot more natural health benefits.
How many sessions are needed?
That depends on your goals and current condition. In general, acute injuries (sprains, abrasions, etc.) show rapid improvement and often resolve in 2-4 treatments. Long-term and chronic conditions may need up to 10 treatments to show significant benefits. Most clients do 3 times per week until their goals are met, then reduce to 1-2 times per week for maintenance. For athletes with a rigorous workload, 3-5 times per week is recommended for optimal recovery. Our Vitality professionals and Functional Medicine providers will be able to help guide you to optimal results!
What should I do after my session?
Hydrate! Water is essential for cellular processes, and your cells will be hard at work after PBM. Make sure to drink extra water and eat well so your cells have all the fuel they need to heal.
