Red light therapy is a fast-growing niche that is becoming increasingly popular for a variety of reasons. It is non-invasive and painless, and it helps clients with a wide range of health issues including: skin rejuvenation, wound healing, muscle recovery, pain relief, sleep improvement, joint flexibility, mental health, and more. Adding this technology to your business can help you stay competitive, increase revenue and boost your client satisfaction.
In addition to med-spas, spas, and beauty/tanning salons, LLLT is also popular in chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage clinics, cosmetic surgery practices, and acupuncture and Ayurvedic practitioners’ offices. It can be used in combination with a number of other treatments such as hydration boosting, detoxification and metabolic support supplements, and massage and bodywork.
The cellular healing effects of red light are a result of photons (particles of light) entering cells and activating chromophores, which then triggers a chain reaction that promotes tissue repair and regeneration, says the PBM Foundation. Red light also stimulates the mitochondria of cells, which generate ATP energy to promote cell growth and improve the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Adding a red light therapy service to your practice can be as easy as adding any other treatment. The machines are easy to operate, and sessions last only 10-20 minutes. They also use LED light technology, so there shouldn’t be a significant impact on your electricity bill. Plus, many clients are already familiar with the benefits of this technology, making it easier to sell them on your new service.
