Welcome to The Sauna Hub, your ultimate destination for all things sauna! In today’s blog, we’re delving into the fascinating world of Red Light Therapy. We’ll explore how it works, its benefits, and how you can incorporate it into your wellness routine. So sit back, relax, and let’s dive in!
What Is Red Light Therapy?
Red Light Therapy (RLT), also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Photobiomodulation, is a treatment that uses red and near-infrared (NIR) light wavelengths to promote healing, reduce inflammation, and enhance overall health. This non-invasive therapy has been researched extensively, and its benefits are backed by numerous scientific studies.
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red and near-infrared light penetrates the skin, reaching cells, tissues, and even bones. These wavelengths stimulate cellular activity and promote the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the energy source our cells need to function optimally. By increasing ATP production, cells can regenerate and repair themselves more efficiently, leading to various health benefits.
The Science Behind Red Light Therapy
Scientists have been researching the effects of light on human health for decades. In recent years, red light therapy has gained popularity due to its wide range of benefits and minimal side effects. Here’s a quick overview of how the science works:
- Red and NIR light wavelengths are absorbed by mitochondria, the “powerhouses” of our cells.
- This absorption stimulates the production of ATP, providing cells with the energy they need to function optimally.
- Enhanced cellular function leads to various health benefits, from reduced inflammation to faster wound healing.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy offers a wide range of benefits, backed by extensive scientific research. Some of the most notable benefits include:
- Reduced Inflammation: Reducing inflammation is crucial for maintaining overall health. RLT has been shown to lower inflammation markers in the body, resulting in improved overall wellbeing.
- Enhanced Skin Health: RLT can improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity by stimulating collagen production and increasing blood flow to the skin. It also helps combat acne and other skin issues.
- Pain Relief: RLT has been proven to alleviate pain in various conditions, including arthritis, joint pain, and muscle soreness.
- Wound Healing: By promoting cellular regeneration, RLT can help speed up the healing process for wounds and burns.
- Improved Mental Health: RLT can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation in the brain.
- Better Sleep: Studies have shown that RLT can help improve sleep quality by regulating melatonin production and reducing cortisol levels.

Red Light Therapy vs. Chromatherapy
While Red Light Therapy focuses on red and near-infrared wavelengths, Chromatherapy, also known as colour therapy, utilises a broader spectrum of colours to address various health concerns. Each colour is believed to have unique healing properties, and the treatment is often used in conjunction with other therapies, such as infrared saunas.

How to Use Red Light Therapy
To make the most of your Red Light Therapy sessions, follow these steps:
- Choose the right environment: Find a quiet, comfortable space where you can relax and focus on your wellbeing.
- Exposure time: For optimal results, sessions should last between 10-30 minutes, depending on your individual needs and preferences.
- Frequency: Aim for 3-5 sessions per week to experience the full range of benefits Red Light Therapy has to offer.
- Skin contact: For maximum effectiveness, make sure the red light is directly in contact with your skin, as clothing can obstruct the light’s penetration.
