Light therapy is an every-day term for the science of heiliotherapy. It uses invisible, near infrared (IR), wavelengths to deliver energy to the cells, stimulating healing and relieving pain. light therapy has been proven effective by hundreds of studies all over the globe, is 100% natural and has no known adverse side effects. 80% of sunlight is infrared, withought it we would not exist as a planet.
IR light therapy is essentially the same as red light therapy, except infrared energy is invisible, and it penetrates the body deeper than red, reaching deep into soft tissues, muscles, joints, and bone.
Visible red and invisible near infrared energy are absorbed by photoreceptors in each cell. Once absorbed, the light energy kicks off a whole series of metabolic events, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level. There is an increase in blood flow, allowing the parts of the body to receive the oxygen and nutrients they need in order to function more effectively. Regeneration is stimulated. Inflammation and pain are reduced.

Beyond the clinical evidence, I personally have witnessed red light improve stretch marks, totally heal eczema that had persisted for years, and drastically improve muscle recovery after strenuous workouts. The real-life benefits of red light for improved health are quite overwhelming.
Here are some of the documented benefits of red light therapy:
Improves skin tone and complexion
Stimulates production of collagen and elastin
Enhances muscle recovery and athletic performance
Reduces joint pain, inflammation, and arthritis
Improves appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks
Reduces acne, rosacea, and eczema
Speeds healing of wounds and injuries
Blue light therapy works by killing bacteria.
A natural remedy for chest infections, such as bronchitis and COPD.
Some users may find light therapy helpful for cystic acne, rosacea, and acne scars. Generally, it’s marketed for the treatment of mild to moderate hormonal acne. Blue light is able to penetrate deep into your pores. This can end acne breakouts before they reach the surface.
Besides prevention, blue light also reduces the appearance of active breakouts. It decreases the build-up of oils on your skin and over time may even reduce pore size.
