What is Red Light Therapy and how does it work?
Let’s take a second to recap what we already know about Red Light Therapy. Also known as photobiomodulation, Red Light Therapy is a non-invasive treatment exposing the body to a combination of natural and infrared lights for cellular absorption. During a session of Red Light Therapy at Pro Recovery Zone, clients have the ability to stretch or decompress however they see fit as our setup allows for clients to use the panels how they would like which includes lying down, sitting, or standing.

How did Red Light Therapy affect our participants’ sleep?
Now that you have a better understanding of Red Light Therapy, we want to showcase a few individuals from our recent case study that immediately saw the benefits as it relates to sleep. The current theory is that Red Light Therapy increases the production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps you sleep, within the body. There are many small-scale studies that have shown results that help support this theory of improved sleep related to the use of Red Light Therapy. Below we have some questions we asked following our six-week case study along with the responses from three of our participants which highlight their experiences with Red Light Therapy and the immediate benefits they saw during the course of our study.
