What Are The REAL Benefits Of Light Therapy?
Let’s start with how it works…The human body needs light. Without the sun, we would quickly become dangerously deficient in vitamin D. Not to mention the other physiological and emotional challenges we would face. Sunlight is a combination of the entire visible light spectrum (400 – 700 nm) as well as UV (300 – 400 nm) and infrared (700 – 1000 nm) light. Most people are well aware of the potential dangers of too much sunlight due to damaging UV rays. However, the body has specific responses to light in the 600 – 900 nm wavelength range, also known as the therapeutic window. This light energy can pass through human tissues much easier than other wavelengths. Specifically, light in the mid-600 nm and mid-800 nm range has been shown to provide optimal biological responses. This energy is absorbed by the body up to a depth of about 10-12 mm and stimulates ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the mode of chemical energy transportation at the cellular level. The cells receive this rejuvenating, anti-aging energy boost that enables them to perform their natural functions at a heightened level. Here are some of the documented benefits of red light therapy: – Improves skin tone and complexion – Stimulates production of collagen and elastin – Enhances muscle recovery and athletic performance – Reduces joint pain, inflammation, and arthritis – Improves appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks – Reduces acne, rosacea, and eczema – Increases circulation – Speeds healing of wounds and injuries Unlike many other types of treatments, red light therapy is completely safe, non-invasive, uses no chemicals, and has no harmful side effects. It simply harnesses the natural healing and rejuvenating benefits of a specific range of light and delivers this energy at a higher rate than the sun (without the harmful UV rays). It is a very relaxing and energizing experience that is quickly becoming a revolutionary treatment in numerous medical specialties due to its many applications and benefits.
Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy. LightStim LED light therapy delivers light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural processes
What does light therapy actually do?
A good way to explain it is comparing light to food. Just like whole food can be broken down into different vitamins and minerals, sunlight can be broken down into different colors. And just like the nutrients in whole food, each color in sunlight has its own effect on our bodies. The wavelengths of visible light are tiny, ranging from 400 to 700 billionths of a meter, or 400-700 nanometers (nm). The wavelength of light defines the color as we see it. And each color has its own unique properties and penetrates your body in different ways.
So How Does Red Light Therapy Work? Once absorbed into your body, light energy is converted into cellular energy, which kicks off a series of metabolic events like the formation of new capillaries, elevated production of collagen, and the release of ATP. Red light therapy has been approved by the FDA and its effectiveness has been studied throughout the world.
LightStim MultiWave Patented Technology simultaneously emits multiple wavelengths (colors) of light. These wavelengths of light work together to increase blood circulation so your body can naturally relieve pain and promote total body wellness.
