Stimulate All-Over Healing,without the From the Inside Out
Available now as an addition to your salt therapy session in some of our suites, red light therapy works to stimulate cell mitochondria, the powerhouses of our cells. This therapy stimulates collagen production and improve skin health and appearance, aid in wound healing, and help with muscle recovery.
Benefits of Red Light Therapy
- Skin-Deep Benefits
- Reduces inflammation
- Inhibits autoimmunity improving eczema and psoraisis
- Reduces wrinkles, improves skin firmness

- Improves Muscle Soreness and Pain. Benefits continue during exercise and after exercise, reducing pain from musculoskeletal disorders. Red light may temporarily improve swelling and stiffness from rheumatoid arthritis.
- Helps Wounds Heal. Red light can help reduce inflammation, stimulate blood flow, and improve skin’s ability to heal. Combined infrared and red light are especially effective.
- Immune System Support. NASA conducted a study to learn whether red light could help support cancer patients’ immune systems, specifically healing painful mouth sores caused by chemotherapy. 96% of study participants saw improvement in healing the mouth sores. Red light is now used in other wound healing needs to support the immune system’s work.
- Sleep Better. Many of us miss out on natural light during the work week. Red light provides a natural light boost, restoring our circadian cycles.
The Effects of Red Light Therapy on the Brain
Red Light Therapy provides inner benefits such as improved mood, reduced stress levels, and enhanced energy. Here are some of the ways red light therapy can benefit the mind:
- Relaxation – The warmth generated by red light stimulates nerves that release calming signals throughout your body including your brain. This helps reduce tension in both your muscles and mind, leading to greater relaxation.
- Improved Sleep Quality – Exposure to red light boosts melatonin production, which is responsible for regulating our sleep-wake cycles. By restoring your natural balance of hormones you can enjoy better quality sleep and wake up feeling refreshed each morning.
- Reduced Stress – Studies have shown that regular use of red light therapy can help decrease cortisol levels which are associated with high levels of stress, fatigue and feelings of anxiety. Over time this can lead to improved concentration and greater emotional stability.
- Enhanced Mood – Regular sessions with a red light device can lift imbalances in neurotransmitters, promoting the uptake of endorphins which help us feel relaxed and energized at the same time. This leads to improved overall well-being as well as reducing symptoms of depression or low moods.
