Red & Near Infrared Light Therapy
Red & Near Infrared Light (NIR) wavelengths are very healing for the human body. Just as our body responds to UV wavelengths to produce Vitamin D, Red & NIR wavelengths stimulate other essential processes. We evolved with these wavelengths but are typically indoors or wearing excessive clothing to witness their healing effects around dawn and dusk.
Light wavelengths are a lot like nutrients, meaning we need to have an appropriate balance. We have photoreceptors, structures that absorb light photons all over our body, even within our mitochondria. Once the Red/NIR Light reaches your mitochondria, the powerhouses of your cells, it stimulates the last link in the chain to more effectively create energy. When this process slows down, free radicals run rampant and damage important cellular components, causing mitochondrial dysfunction.
What Light Therapy Treats
Symptoms light therapy helps to heal include skin issues, fatigue, stress, insomnia, inflammation, mood disturbances, hormonal imbalance and blood flow. It also can assist with blood sugar regulation.

The Seed & Soil Solution
Depending on your specific concern, we will decide the treatment dosage, area, and frequency required to efficiently address that condition. We utilize a Red/NIR light device which supplies medical-grade, therapeutic light to our patients. There is very minimal risk with over exposure to Red and NIR light, but we still like to approach with caution as too much a good thing is typically bad. We also like to avoid unnecessary treatments that can cost you extra money.
