Full Body Red-Light Therapy

Ready for Red-Light therapy?

We all need natural light every day for health and physical performance, but most of us don’t get nearly enough. Red light therapy is a natural and proven solution to increase your light intake and experience a wide range of health benefits, from improved skin to muscle recovery and better sleep.

Clinically proven health benefits of Red-Light therapy

10 of the most studied and well-documented health benefits of light therapy include:

  • Stimulated natural melatonin production for healthier sleep [2,3]
  • Improved skin tone and complexion[7,8]
  • More natural production of collagen and elastin[7,8]
  • Improved appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks[7,8]
  • Reduced acne, rosacea, and eczema[7,8]
  • Enhanced muscle recovery and physical performance[9]
  • Reduced joint pain and inflammation[10,11,12]
  • Increased circulation[13]
  • Faster healing of wounds and injuries[13]
  • Helps cut fat and manage obesity [14,15]

Photobiomodulation studies

Extensive research into clinical effects of Red and Near Infrared (NIR) photobiomodulation (PBM) phototherapy is available in numerous publications.

The comprehensive database below summarizes the findings and provides links to the articles.

Athletes

Elite athletes & competitors use light therapy to train harder & recover faster. Natural light boosts energy & drive and helps your cells regenerate & heal faster, so you can get better results quicker, with less injury risk. Contact us today to learn more about light therapy.

Treatment guidelines for full body Red-Light therapy

For the most biologically effective red light therapy, follow these treatment guidelines:


Position Yourself 4-6 Inches from the light panel: You can sit or stand, but clinical research and user experiences have demonstrated that 4-6 inches is the ideal distance during a treatment.

10-15 Minute Treatment Times: 10-minute treatments at 4-6 inches from the device is optimal. 15-20 minutes for symptomatic areas may be beneficial, but beyond that, the evidence points to diminishing returns (your cells can only absorb so much light at once). For this reason, we recommend you allow at least 6 hours between treatments of the same area.

Frequency of treatments: To get the most out of your treatments, consistency is key. We recommend once daily use, although 2-3 times per day may be beneficial for symptomatic areas. If you have to miss some days, we suggest at least 5 times a week. Sporadic treatments are similar to sporadic workouts; you may benefit that day, but for longer-term, full-body health effects, you need to be consistent.

Any Time of Day: Some people love how it feels in the morning and say it perks them up for the day. Others wait until before or after a workout for max energy and recovery. And many use biophotomodulation at night, or as an alternative to bright, artificial lights after dark. The important thing is fitting red light therapy into your daily routine, regardless of what time.

Targeting Problem Areas: Many of the health benefits from red light therapy can be attained by consistent, full-body use. For example, you don’t need to target your thyroid gland to treat symptoms of thyroid disorders. However, it can be beneficial to target specific physical problem areas like sore joints or burns. In those cases, direct treatments for 10-20 minutes allows natural light to penetrate deeper into tissue for greater effect.

Whole-body vibration (WBV)

Improve your wellbeing with WBV

Shown to have an important role in increasing neuromuscular performance, improving muscular strength, balance, help oxygen and nutrients get to your muscles and other tissues more efficiently. Whole-body vibration has been used by NASA to recover muscle strength and bone density of astronauts. 

The Bulletproof Vibe is a whole body vibration platform that vibrates at a frequency of 30Hz, the most effective frequency for the most people. As you sit or stand (always with knees bent!) on the vibration machine vibrating platform, your muscles will contract and relax dozens of time each second, which is why doing squats on a vibrating plate requires so much more energy than doing them on the ground.

Vibration can help oxygen and nutrients get to your muscles and other tissues more efficiently, which can aid in flexibility, blood flow, and muscle recovery after exercise.



Here are some simple steps to get you started:


  • Keep your knees bent at about a 30-degree angle as you stand on the vibrating plate.
  • Use whole body vibration training to get the lymphatic and circulatory benefits associated with movement, or
  • you can perform some simple exercises on the vibe plate to strengthen your muscles. Poses such as deeper squats or placing your hands on the vibe plate (feet on the floor) in a plank position.
  • Start with 30-second to 1-minute sessions and (if desired) you can slowly work your way up to 15-minute sessions.
  • Don’t exceed 15 continues minutes on a vibration plate.
