Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation (PBM) or low-level light therapy (LLLT) -- is a non-invasive and natural treatment that heals the body on a cellular level. It delivers red and near-infrared (NIR) light waves to the body through advanced LEDs. Red and NIR light share similar biological benefits and work synergistically, penetrating up to 5 - 10cm below the surface of the skin. Red light waves work on the superficial layers of the skin, and the longer wavelength NIR light penetrates deeper tissues like nerves, muscles, tendons and bone. Red Light Therapy can achieve a multitude of health benefits, including enhanced sleep, improved sports performance and recovery, reducing chronic pain, more youthful and glowing skin, and many more. 

Red Light Therapy affects change and promotes healing at the cellular level, it therefore delivers a myriad of health benefits. You'd be surprised at the number (over 3000) of peer reviewed studies illustrating the benefits of red and infrared light. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the ways red light therapy can benefit you:

HELL YES! The proof is in the pudding or so they say. We sent out lights to Light Lab International, you can see the results here: OptiGlo versus Comp 

Other Red Light Therapy companies like to make BIG claims, but when compared by a third party OptiGlo speaks for itself. Real life customer reviews and results speak for themselves, OptiGlo is number one!

Research shows exposure to red light to be beneficial for eye health. However the OptiGlo lights are very powerful and intense, so we recommend wearing the included eye googles or closing your eyes when using, especially when using NIR.

When using, DO NOT stare directly into the LEDs.

Again, our OptiGlo Lights are very bright and if you have any eye problems, or any other health conditions at all, please consult with a licensed healthcare professional before using.
