Infrared Light Therapy provides non invasive drug free tools to promote health and well being. It can dramatically increase circulation, reduce inflammation and encourage healing.  Infrared Light Therapy supports healing for Brain Injuries, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Muscle Strains/Sprains, Back and Neck Pain, Neuropathy, Wounds, Sciatica, Tendonitis, Bursitis and more.  These Class II medical devices are simple and safe for anyone to use.  

The Science

Scientists call waves of electromagnetic energy that travel through space light. We tend to think of light as only the radiant energy that we see with our eyes. But the light we can detect with our eyes is a very tiny fraction of all the types of light that exist. Infrared light is one type of light that is invisible to us. Gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet light, microwaves and radio waves are other types of invisible light. All of these rays and waves are the same type of electromagnetic energy. They are different only because the length of their waves are different.

When we see something by visible light, our eyes allow us to distinguish the light of different waves as different colours. The waves that are short appear blue and the waves that are long appear red. We can’t really see the waves, we only see the colours that our mind creates to help us interpret the world. Every colour has a distinct wavelength. For example, violet light can be seen at light wavelengths of around 0.4 micron (a micron is defined as a millionth of a meter. That is also one thousandth of a millimeter.) and yellow light is made up of waves that are 0.6 microns long. Reddish colours begin at wavelengths of about 0.65 microns. Your eyes cannot see light that has a wavelength longer than 0.7 microns.Light with wavelengths from 0.7 micron to about 0.1 millimeter is called infrared light. The band of infrared light is a thousand times wider than that of visible light. All of it is invisible to our eyes.

The Light Spectrum

As you can see, infrared light goes deeper than all other light colour therapies do.

Near infrared light therapy uses invisible, near infrared wavelengths between 700 and 1200 nm to deliver energy to the cells, stimulating healing and relieving pain. Infrared light therapy has been proven effective by hundreds of studies all over the globe, is 100% natural and has no known adverse side effects.

Near infrared light therapy is where light therapy gets serious. The combination of red light therapy with near infrared energy is being researched for amazing things such as the reversal of traumatic brain injury, stopping and healing the debilitating effects of stroke and heart attack, and the regeneration of damaged nerves.

Invisible near infrared energy is absorbed by photoreceptors in each cell. Once absorbed, the light energy kicks off a whole series of metabolic events, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level. There is an increase in blood flow, allowing the parts of the body to receive the oxygen and nutrients they need in order to function more effectively. Regeneration is stimulated. Inflammation and pain are reduced.

Who can use this Therapy?

When the InfraRed Light Therapy gets into the deeper layers of the body, it’s able to dilate the blood vessels. This allows more oxygen and nutrients to go to the tissue in need.
