By: Melissa A. Kay Those afflicted with Alzheimer’s (the most common form of dementia) and the people who love them are constantly concerned about the steady decline in memory as well as seemingly odd thought patterns and unusual behaviors which affect daily life. Over time, there have been some medical breakthroughs in the field of Alzheimer’s research, but overall, the future is generally grim,...
Let’s be real; infrared saunas are kind of a big deal. From weight loss to clear skin, the benefits are endless. However, one of the biggest reasons people seem to turn to infrared saunas is because of pain. Honestly; we aren’t the young ducklings we used to be. And whether it’s from an injury, age, or just day-to-day activities, we all get pain from...
As mood disorders like depression and anxiety are on the rise, the need for healthy coping mechanisms rises with it. Daniel F. Kripke, M.D, professor of psychiatry at the University of California San Diego, theorizes that light therapy may remedy feelings of depression and anxiety, especially in those who experience it seasonally. Phototherapy has the ability to mimic light that is necessary for a...
FAQS About Red Light Therapy & Fat Loss I'VE HEARD OF LASER LIPO, ULTRASOUND CAVITATION, AND FREEZING FAT WITH CRYPOLISIS. HOW DOES LED PHOTOTHERAPIES COMPARE TO OTHER TECHNOLOGIES FOR FAT LOSS? The main difference is The Lipo Wrap treats a larger treatment area with 600 diodes consistently working over the entire area during the treatment, with the added benefit of infrared heat to increase...
Low level light therapy is the use of a certain part of the spectrum of near infrared light. This type of therapy, called LLLT for short, has been confirmed by researchers worldwide to be great for reducing pain, inflammation, and swelling. It promotes healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and prevents tissue damage by reducing the number of cells dying from trauma, lack...

Red light therapy first gained prominence in 1903, when Danish physicist Niels Ryberg Finsen was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology, for his pioneering work on the therapeutic and physiological effects of light treatment from artificial light sources and his invention of light therapy for skin tuberculosis.
Hungarian physician, Endre Mester, developed the first low-level laser therapy device in 1967 and tested its effects on skin cancer. He later used the device to show the effects of laser light on wound healing processes. In the 1960s LED Therapy was being used for treatment of chronic pain, arthritis and associated conditions, joint rehabilitation, and soft-tissue injury along with other medical ailments in Eastern Europe and in the USA for equestrian rehabilitation.
The study of Red light therapy grows vastly, with trials being done at leading research centers and institutions like . Many professional sports teams and athletes begin using LED therapy to aid in sports related injuries, and physical therapists discover recovery times up to 50 times faster than without Red light therapy.
NASA discovers red light therapy is effective for treating pain while maintaining astronauts' muscle mass while in space, and reports a 40 percent improvement in musculoskeletal training injuries treated with the light-emitting diodes - and publishes a press release stating “NASA scientists have found that cells exposed to near-infrared light from LEDs, which is energy just outside the visible range, grow 150 to 200 percent faster than cells not stimulated by such light. The light arrays increase energy (ATP and nitric oxide) that speed up the healing process.”
Despite being used effectively for nearly a decade the FDA approves the first low level laser therapy devices to treat inflammation, acne and pain
Jessica Charles develops the first wearable Red Light Therapy device and launches Nushape, bringing clinical grade light therapy to the home user at a fraction of the cost paid for in office visits.
