            Reduce Inflammation and Pain with Infra-red Light Therapy

What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy is emerging as an alternative treatment for skin and muscle problems that are inflamed, painful or aging. It’s beginning to show promise as an effective way to improve certain conditions. 

Red-light therapy (RTL) is a non-invasive, drug-free therapy that uses low-level wavelengths of red and near-infra-red (NIR) light to boost energy and improve the body’s healing ability. It works by stimulating the “power-house” cells of the body, known as mitochondria, and giving them more energy to do their job.
