WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?
Red light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level light to promote healing and wellness. The light is absorbed by the cells in the body, which triggers several beneficial cellular processes.
Body Boost Bed (BBB) Therapy is also known as photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy. The treatment will become a central component for medical and aesthetic practices for years to come.
Red light therapy is a safe and effective treatment that can be used by people of all ages. It is a natural and holistic approach to healing that can help to improve your overall health and well-being.
It has several medical and wellness-based uses, thanks to a wide body of supporting evidence.
Research from 2016 titled Shining light on the head: Photobiomodulation for brain disorders showed that the treatment ‘increased blood flow, energy, had neuroprotection benefits, reduced inflammation and helped to aid brain repair’.
HOW DOES RED LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
Red light therapy works by using low-level light to stimulate the production of ATP, the body's main source of energy. When ATP levels are increased, the cells can function more efficiently, which can lead to several beneficial effects.
The treatment uses light wavelengths that specifically targets cells that are stressed and deprived from oxygen. Light (or photons), hit the cell and are absorbed. This absorption disassociates the free radical from the cell to allow oxygen to take its rightful place and resume optimal energy production.
Red light therapy also helps to reduce inflammation and pain. Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury or infection. However, chronic inflammation can lead to several health problems, including pain, fatigue, and impaired cognitive function.
Red light therapy can help to reduce inflammation by stimulating the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines.
BENEFITS OF RED LIGHT THERAPY
Research published in 2020 titled ‘Photobiomodulation—Underlying Mechanism and Clinical Applications’ proved that the treatment had several useful applications, leading the researchers to conclude that…
Photobiomodulation is a non-invasive method that contributes to pain relief and reduces inflammation, parallel to the enhanced healing and tissue repair processes.
A more comprehensive list of benefits to red light therapy includes…
Improve joint function.
Muscle and soft tissue recovery
Immune system support
Red light therapy can help to reduce pain by stimulating the production of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. Endorphins bind to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, which blocks the transmission of pain signals.
Red light therapy can help to reduce inflammation by stimulating the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines. Cytokines are proteins that act as messengers between cells. Anti-inflammatory cytokines help to reduce the production of inflammatory molecules, such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
Red light therapy can help to speed up wound healing by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its strength and elasticity. Elastin is a protein that gives skin its flexibility. This also helps to reduce the effects of ageing.
Red light therapy can help to speed up muscle recovery by reducing inflammation and pain. Red light therapy can also help to increase muscle mass and strength. The circulation improvement also helps to deliver repair agents to the muscles.
Red light therapy can help to improve skin health by reducing wrinkles, age spots, and sun damage. Red light therapy can also help to improve skin tone and texture. The production of collagen also helps to improve the condition of the skin.
IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT
Red light therapy can help to boost the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells. White blood cells are the body's natural defence against infection.
HOW TO GET RED LIGHT THERAPY
Red light therapy can be enjoyed using a red light therapy device such as a Body Boost Bed. If you are considering red light therapy, it is important to talk to your doctor to make sure it is right for you.
Red light therapy is a safe and effective treatment that can help to improve a variety of health conditions. It’s a completely passive treatment in that you simply lie there and let the machine do its work. All you need do is rest, relax and leave feeling rejuvenated!
