About Red Light Therapy

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red light therapy is a natural, non-
invasive healing modality that delivers

beneficial light directly to your body and
cells. Red light has been widely studied
in clinical studies around the world over
the last 20 years, including research at
NASA which validated the efficacy of
red light therapy. It utilizes two specific
wavelengths of light (mid 600nm red
light and mid 800nm near-infrared light)
that are naturally emitted by the sun.
In targeted doses, they provide a wide
range of health benefits across different
systems and parts of the body.


How does Red Light Therapy work?

Red light therapy works by delivering
your body the natural light that it
needs to function at its best health.
Red light therapy is able to penetrate
deep into the human body. Once in the
deeper tissues, red and near infrared
light have incredible healing effects
on the cells – leading to reduced
inflammation, enhanced energy
production, cellular regeneration and
anti-aging, and much more.

Health benefits of Red Light Therapy?


Understanding Red Light Therapy

All light falls along a spectrum of wavelengths. Red and infrared light that falls within the wavelength range of
630-850 nanometers (nm) is extremely beneficial, and often referred to as the “therapeutic window”. These wavelengths of light are bioactive in humans, which
mean they have a biological effect on the body like antibiotics or vitamins and affect the function of our cells. Red light emits wavelengths between 620-700
nanometers (nm). All red light wavelengths are effective and offer health benefits, although certain wavelengths are more powerful than others–particularly those that fall between 630-680 nanometers (nm). Visible red light within this range can penetrate deep into the skin, offering
rejuvenating and balancing outcomes for a range of health conditions.


Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe?

Absolutely! There have been hundreds of studies around the world that provide the safety and effectiveness of red light therapy
on all parts of the body. Because of this, red light therapy has become an extremely popular way to treat skin problems, athletic injuries, and even help with sleep! Since red light therapy does not have the harmful
UV rays or heat like the sun, you can rest assured that you are getting the right dose of light without any negative side effects!

How Long does it take to work?

You can experience results as early as after the first treatment session with red light therapy. To get the most out of your Vital Red Light, consistency is key. We recommend getting 2-3 treatments a week to see beneficial results for symptomatic areas. Red light therapy has been proven to work fast and effectively.

Why we need healthy light?

When we don’t get adequate natural light, it affects every cell and process within our body. Humans were made to use sunlight for optimal health. Healthy light is essential to every cell’s function, and a lack of light
can lead to chronic disease and illness. Lack of sunlight has been known to cause anxiety and depression because not enough sunshine depletes brain serotonin and dopamine levels, and those low levels can lead to disabling mood conditions.
