Red Light Therapy at Zen Yoga Barre

What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy is a natural, alternative therapy with a long list of benefits and no known adverse side effects. To put it very simply, red light therapy is the practice of shining red light on yourself in a prescribed way in order to make you look younger, heal faster, reduce pain, or bring overall balance to your energy and endocrine systems. And yes, it works.

What red light therapy is depends on who you ask. There are two very different ways to look at it: first, from the viewpoint of Western traditional medicine; and second, from the viewpoint of Eastern, energy medicine.

How Red Light Therapy Works

Visible red light is capable of penetrating the skin to a depth of about 8 to 10 mm. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to cellular energy, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level and kicking off a whole series of metabolic events, including:

  • Increased circulation and the formation of new capillaries. 
  • Increased lymph system activity.
  • Increased production of collagen and fibroblasts. 
  • Increased release of ATP, or raw cellular energy. 
  • Increased phagocytosis, or cellular clean up.
  • Tissue granulation stimulated. 
  • Inflammation reduced.
