What Is Red Light Therapy
Have you ever heard of red light therapy? Especially in recent years, you may have heard of red light therapy and weight loss or of health, wellness, injury recovery, and much more. That’s because there is a lot more about red light therapy than most people realize. At Fit and Trim of Sarasota, we love educating people about all the amazing things red light can do and how it works. This blog will go over the basics of red light therapy and how you can add it to your wellness routine to reach your goals more effectively and efficiently.
Red Light Therapy: A Look at the Science
Red light therapy uses a specific wavelength of light that penetrates the skin and targets the cells directly. It works by producing a biochemical effect in your cells by firming the mitochondria. Since this is the cell area with energy, the red light can help activate the mitochondria, allowing your body to purge any unnecessary toxins, including excess fat, for example. This cell activation only happens with the emittance of a combination of light and heat from light-emitting diodes (LED), just like you can find in our office.
However, beware that all red light therapy devices are not the same. Some claim to be able to spot treat, and that is not as effective. Full-body exposure is the only way to ensure that your cells are activated for optimal treatment. Our zero-gravity beds allow for that full-body exposure that is critical to the effectiveness of your therapy.
