The Research Behind Red and Infrared Light Therapy

The therapeutic effects of red and infrared light therapy are well documented in the scientific community. Treatment with infrared and red light is called photobiomodulation . These treatments can be carried out with light emitting diodes also known as LED’s.

Using photobiomodulation, an area is treated with light. This light improves the biological functions by increasing ATP which then supplies the cells with much needed energy.

The Science

There are thousands of research papers showing the benefits of photobiomodulation. Below is a list of studies carried out on humans for various conditions. Although not an exhaustive list. It is a great start in recognizing the healing power and results that are attainable from the use of photobiomodulation. If science is not your thing, check out the personal reviews that we feel speak for themselves.
