Red Light Therapy

Your healing journey starts within.

Helping to heal from the inside out; when used in conjunction with regular yoga and/or meditation classes to help stretch, work, and ease the mind and body in support of holistic physical and mental wellbeing, Red Light Therapy is especially proven to treat a multitude of illnesses and ailments from chronic pain to depression, stress and anxiety.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy is a safe, and effective alternative health practice using a laser to emit low level wavelengths of red and near-infrared light into the body; essentially recharging your cells through systemic effect (activating cells that travel throughout the body via the blood system) to allow the body to heal itself from the inside out.

In a modern age where many of us suffer from light deficiency due to increased time spent indoors, excessive use of electronic devices emitting damaging blue light emissions, and harmful pollution blocking the energizing rays of the sun, Red Light Therapy is proven to be a non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive treatment option for a variety of different conditions, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Depression, stress and anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Addiction recovery
  • Joint inflammation
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine and headaches
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Tendonitis
  • Sciatica
  • TMJ
  • Reproductive issues / low Testosterone
  • Acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis

  • Counterbalancing of harmful blue light from excessive use of electronics (phone / computer screens, etc.)

How Does Red Light Therapy Work?

Red Light Therapy uses red and near infrared light to penetrate 3 inches into the body. Scientifically speaking, when the light reaches the cell, it activates the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell), which stimulates production of adenosine triphosphate or ATP (a source of energy within the cell); simulating the release of Nitric Oxide (a circulation regulator), which causes collagen production, the creation of new cells, and the repairing of old cells.

What Makes Our Red Light Therapy Machine Better Than Others?

While hand-held LED machines are used by many spas and chiropractic offices. Our free-standing Red Light Therapy machine uses a proprietary plasma-arc laser light capable of producing much more power than LED, which allows the light to penetrate more than 8x deeper into the tissue.

Our machine is also capable of broad-area treatment, meaning the light can cover more surface area than a hand-held device, which are typically limited to very precise, small area treatments.

What Does Red Light Therapy Entail?

Each Red Light Therapy treatment session is 20 minutes in duration, during which time you will sit or lay with the affected area positioned beneath the machine. The session will be administered and closely monitored by our trained staff.

During treatment, you will be given protective eye goggles, and if you wear contacts, they will need to be removed. Light clothing or bare skin is recommended.

For optimal results, it’s important to drink water after your treatment, and to clean the affected area of all moisturizers, lotions, creams and makeup prior to treatment. All metals and jewellery should also be removed from the area to be treated.

Red Light Therapy is cumulative; increasing effectiveness through a series of treatments. Depending on the severity of the condition, the optimal treatment time is 2-3 times a week for 6 weeks.
