Red Light 101

Ready. Set. Glow.

Your journey to wellness begins the second you start to make purposeful decisions to improve your health. As your self health awareness increases, you will find yourself naturally making healthier decisions. With each health-driven decision you may not realize it, but you are actually carving out your personal wellness journey.

Some of us take a proactive approach to wellness, while others opt for a reactive one, which can be more convenient. However, when it comes to health, proactivity and foresight yield the best results.

Discovering your motivation can be surprisingly challenging. Try engaging in conversations with friends, family, or even your doctor to brainstorm personalized ideas.

Regardless of how, where, or why you begin, remember to be patient, encourage yourself, start with achievable steps, celebrating each milestone as you journey toward a healthier, happier you.

How to Make the Most of Clearlight Red Light Therapy

Here’s a few tips and tricks to get the most out of every rejuvenating session.

1. Bare It All
Red light wavelengths can NOT penetrate clothing, so start with clean, bare skin to ensure the targeted areas are directly exposed to the Clearlight Red Light Therapy unit.

2. Choose a Convenient Location
Set up your red light unit where you typically relax, such as your living room or infrared sauna.

3. Make It Routine
Incorporate red light therapy into your daily life for continuous benefits and improved well-being.

4. Target Specific Areas or Enjoy Full-Body Therapy
Utilize red light therapy to address specific concerns or embrace the overall benefits of whole-body therapy.

5. Results and Timing
While some benefits may appear after the first session, significant results may take one to four weeks, depending on your goals.

6. Effortlessly Rewarding
Red light therapy provides a safe and effective means of addressing various issues, enhancing your well-being with minimal risk and maximum rewards.

7. Uncover the Advantages
While many start with a particular symptom in mind, they often discover additional benefits of red light therapy. Consult with your doctor for personalized guidance if needed.

    The Red Light Therapy Experience

    How can you make your wellness journey more cost-effective, efficient, and enjoyable? From chronic pain relief to youthful skin, red light therapy offers a holistic approach to support your health and wellness goals.

    It's important to note that red light therapy is cumulative, so results may take one to four weeks to become apparent. Once you've successfully integrated Clearlight Light Therapy into your routine, you may experience health benefits in as little as 5 minutes, with optimal session times ranging from 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your desired outcomes.

    After your light therapy session, or within 24 hours, you may begin to notice subtle changes. Perhaps you'll feel more energetic, experience reduced muscle and joint discomfort, or even see improvements in your skin's radiance. Some have reported hair growth and even increased testosterone levels when targeting specific areas.

    *Red Light Therapy Contraindications
    If you have a serious health condition or chronic illness, consult your doctor or pharmacist before starting any new therapy, including red light therapy, to address medication and other concerns.
    RLT is generally safe and painless, with few side effects reported. However, some individuals have experienced headaches, irritability, or eye strain as minor side effects.
    If you have bipolar disorder, consult your doctor before pursuing red light therapy, as there have been rare cases of RLT triggering mania in bipolar patients. The main cause of these risks is intense light or brightness, which can be mitigated by protecting your eyes during RLT sessions and avoiding direct eye contact with the light.
    If you have photosensitivity due to conditions like lupus or are on photosensitive medications, it's advisable to avoid red light therapy.
    Remember, you know your body best – if you notice any changes or have concerns during red light therapy, don't hesitate to consult your doctor. Trust your instincts!
