Red light therapy has been studied for its potential benefits in improving skin health and reducing the signs of aging, including skin tightening. Collagen and elastin production naturally decrease with age, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. Red light therapy may help to counteract these effects. Let’s dig deeper to understand how..? Red light therapy works by stimulating the production of...
The hype around red light therapy (RLT) is growing more prominent over time thanks to the research backing up its wonders! Recently, many scientists started testing RLT on different brain parts, reporting the results as significant and important. Let’s go through RLT’s benefits on the brain and how you can optimize your brain health to reach your peak performance! First things first, red light...
Achieving Thyroid Balance with Light Therapy The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the front of the neck. It is responsible for managing the body’s metabolism and growth/development by secreting hormones to regulate literally every cell, organ and tissue of the body. A disturbance in thyroid function can eventually cause widespread health issues. Hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid) is a condition in which...

Red Light Therapy
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.
