Red light therapy is an every-day term for the science of photobiomodulation.
It has been proven effective for a wide range of healing and rejuvenating uses including anti-aging, hair loss prevention & regrowth, skin conditions, wound care, pain relief, and much more. It is a 100% natural therapy with zero side effects. And yes, it works.
What red light therapy is depends on who you ask. There are two very different ways to look at it: first, from the viewpoint of Western traditional medicine; and second, from the viewpoint of Eastern, energy medicine.
Red Light Therapy & Western Medicine – Photobiomodulation
Western traditional medicine likes to deal with what we can measure in a lab and prove to the FDA. Once NASA came down with undeniable wound healing results from red light therapy, conventional medicine started paying attention. Over 10 years later, red light therapy has now been thoroughly researched and FDA approved for anti-aging and pain relief, with wound care applications soon to follow.
Western doctors and researchers often call red light therapy by other names such as:
LLLT (low level laser or low level light therapy)
LILT (low intensity light therapy)
All of those are red or near infrared light therapy just the same.
