    Red Light Therapy and Weight Loss

    Healthy weight loss could be challenging nowadays, mostly with the dieting industry, generally promoting restriction, which we all know by now leads to compulsion. To lose weight in a healthy way, we need to rework our relationship with food, understand what triggers us and rethink our lifestyle.

  • Red Light Therapy and Pain Relief

    Red Light Therapy and Pain Relief

    Red light therapy has become increasingly popular as a non-invasive and non-pharmacological treatment option for various conditions, including pain relief. This therapy works by exposing the body to low-level wavelengths of red or near-infrared light that can penetrate the skin and tissue to reach the underlying cells. Red light therapy has been shown to have a range of beneficial effects on the body, including...

    Living With Multiple Sclerosis: Discover The Possibilities With RLT AND PEMF

    Living with multiple sclerosis (MS) can be challenging, but exciting developments in supportive treatments like red light therapy (RLT) and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) offer hope for those seeking to improve their quality of life. These therapies have the potential to enhance your well-being by addressing various MS symptoms. MS is a neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system, including the spinal cord...

    10Hz or 40Hz: We Explain The Frequency!

    Why do we add pulsing to our red light therapy devices? The three main reasons we add pulsing in our devices are: first, it decreases tissue heating. Second, it induces brainwave entrainment; and it has its own unique benefits. The hertz (Hz) stands for cycles per second, in other words, the pulses. This being said, slow pulses are meant to decrease nerve sensitivity by...

    NeuroWrap and NeuroWrap Pulse Benefits

    Nushape offers two different devices, the NeuroWrap and the NeuroWrap Pulse. The difference is that the NeuroWrap Pulse offers Red Light Therapy and PEMF treatments (combined and separate). Whereas the NeuroWrap is the best option for PEMF-sensitive customers, check our PEMF contraindications article! We will now explore the various benefits found in the NeuroWrap and NeuroWrap Pulse! The Neurowrap is calibrated to the same...



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.

Nushape exists to develop top-tier, industry-leading LED light therapy devices for photobiomodulation. Implementation of specific wavelengths of LED light can effectively enhance bodily processes by improving mitochondrial health, ATP production; ultimately aiding the cellular ability to work faster, stronger.
