One of the services offered at Elevate Mind Body Studios that continues to receive rave reviews from many of our clients is red light therapy.
If you haven't tried red light therapy you're probably wondering what exactly is it?
Red light therapy, originally developed by NASA stimulates the bottom layer of the skins dermis which in turn, stimulates collagen production. In addition to collagen production, red light therapy also stimulates white blood cells by activating ATP (adenosine triphosphate) stored in the body. This stimulation works to repair damaged tissues. ATP also releases endorphins that provide soothing relief from chronic and acute pain.
Specific benefits of red light therapy include wrinkle, redness and blemish reduction, Reduces and minimizes the look of scars and stretch marks as well as helps reduce the symptoms of rosacea and eczema.
In addition to great looking skin, red light therapy aides with reducing muscle soreness, inflammation, neck and back pain or stiffness. Red light therapy is also used to help ease symptoms of arthritis, as well as reduce fatigue and depression.
We recommend starting 4-6 times a week for the first 2-3 weeks then at least 3 times a week monthly. Red light therapy is safe for daily use and can be combined with any Elevate Mind Body Studio services.
