Red Light Therapy is absolutely amazing!
Ten years ago, I became a Certified Horse Masseur. I am also a Professional horse trainer and Certified rider coach. I wanted to do a course on massage so that I could work on my horses without having to worry about ringing and waiting for someone to come out and work on them.
In the course of things, doing my research on helping to heal the horse I eventually came across Red Light Therapy. I purchased my own machine and INSTANTLY started to see results! I was blown away with it. The machine I purchased is no longer manufactured, in fact I am pretty sure the company no longer exists.
Cutting a long story short, I began experimenting on my own body with the Scanner. It also came with a “BioFind” which you basically ran a rake type fork across the horses body until the machine would let out a high pitched squeal telling you that this is the area to work on, this is the area that is inflamed. Naturally, I didn’t bother with this machine in the kit on myself because I knew where my pain was.
I remember the first time I used RLT on my back just in under my shoulder blade where I was always hurting and chugging off to the chiropractor to be manipulated back in again.
It was one evening when I decided to bring the machine in from the stables where I was getting excellent results on the horses I treated I gave it a go on myself in front of the TV. Next morning I got out of bed it was total bliss! Sometimes, depending on the problem area, I use it for a few days or even weeks (on my broken ribs I received). It just depends on how bad the ailment is as to how many days I use it.
By the way, those broken ribs healed up really quickly using the machine on them, from a distance I might add as I couldn’t bear the thought of putting the diodes directly on my broken bones. That was over two years ago now, I’ve had no little reminders at all that my ribs were even broken.
I am using it on a daily basis for my skin tone on my face and am seeing awesome results in as far as firmness and fine lines go. The deeper, laughter lines take a bit longer, I’ll keep working on those.
Saving a bunch of $ – no more visits to my chiro.
From the day I started using my RLT/Infrared Therapy machine which is now coming up to eleven years I have not been back to my chiropractor.
My husband jumped on the bandwagon, he’s only been back to his chiropractor 4 times over 11 years and considering he went like me, once every three to four weeks that is pretty good going I reckon.
How it works
Natural red light powers your cells. A light therapy device delivers red & near infrared wavelengths directly to your body with LEDs. These photons of natural, therapeutic light produce a chemical reaction in the mitochondria of your cells that boosts energy production and regeneration.
Visible red light, at wavelengths from 630 to 700 nm penetrates tissue to a depth of about 10 mm. Light at this wavelength is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, and is particularly effective in treating infections.
I have researched and used RLT on an acupuncture point for ovaries and on the ovary area to help give me relief of pain. I have done the same on mares that were rather nasty and horrid toward other horses at certain times of their cycle and the improvement in them was fantastic.
Infrared light (800 to 1000nm) penetrates to a depth of about 50mm and deeper which makes it more effective for treating the deeper muscle structures, tendons, ligaments, joints, bones and organs.
Although both red and infrared wavelengths penetrate to different depths and affect tissues differently, the therapeutic effects are similar.
Red Light Therapy is not just for aches and pains either
There are over 4000 published medical studies detailing the effect of light therapy on a multitude of conditions – ranging from osteoarthritis, inflammation, peripheral neuropathy, tendon lesions, bacterial infections, nerve regeneration, anxiety, insomnia, post exercise recovery and much more.
This particular study – Transcranial Infrared laser stimulation produces beneficial cognitive and emotional effects in humans is amazing.
Neck & Shoulder Pain
Migraine and Headaches
Non Healing Ulcers
So far, I have tried Red Light/Infra Red Light on 12 of the list above and it’s just been magical.
The beauty of RLT and IRL Therapy is that it is Anti-Aging!
The effects of Red Light Therapy and Infra Red (like photosynthesis in plants). When the correct intensity and treatment times are used, red and near infrared light reduces oxidative stress and increases ATP. This improves cell metabolism and reduce inflammation.
Red light therapy feels so rejuvenating because it stimulates the production of collagen, which gives skin its elasticity, hair its strength, and connective tissue its ability to hold everything together. Numerous studies and trials have found light therapy improves skin tone & complexion, diminishes signs of aging, and speeds the healing of wounds and scars.
Red light therapy can delay the signs of aging and treat acne. By using infrared light, a burst of energy is delivered to the body’s tissues triggering a response for the body to heal from inside. This system is different from the sun’s rays too as it has no harmful UV components. Red light therapy is a non-invasive method of anti-aging treatment and it promises to get rid of wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and even acne on the skin.
I recommend using a red light therapy system if you’re into beautification and have the spare cash. The method is not only good in reversing the signs of aging but it is also helpful in enhancing your general health as well. During the actual therapy, even your joint and muscle pains can be relieved. A return to normal blood pressure has also been linked to exposure to infrared light, adding one more benefit to the list.
What do you think? Do you think Red Light Therapy works… I know it works!
I recommend this guy, they have an awesome combo Red/Infrared that you can do your full body from head to toe. I pray nothing happens to my device I would be totally lost without it but if it does the full bodied Red/Infrared device from The Red Light Man will be my next one.
