What makes Red Light Therapy the most powerful pain relief available without a prescription and how can it get you off the pills and away from surgery?
It’s no secret that we are all light sensitive beings. Different kinds of lights affect our body in a way that science is only beginning to understand. In the last 40 years, research has found some powerful therapeutic benefits of light for our body;
Both visible red and infrared light have been shown to effect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level. There’s also solid evidence that red and infrared light can calm inflammation and relieve pain even if there’s no heat involved.
What Can Be Treated with Red Light Therapy?
I couldn’t believe it when I read all the studies that found light therapy for pain effective for… (Take a breath, it’s long…):
Arthritis, lower back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, Tendonitis, Fibromyalgia, Migraine Headaches, Sprains and Strains, Post-Operative Pain, Injury and Soft Tissue Healing, Burns, Pressure Ulcers, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Herpes Simplex, Acne, Inflammatory Skin Conditions, Rosacea, Soft Tissue Swelling and the List goes on and on.
What’s the Difference Between Visible Red Light and InfraRed Light?
Visible red light at a wavelength of 660nm penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm, which means it’s very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface of the skin – such as cuts, wounds, infections and scars.
Infrared light – Deep penetrating light – at 880nm penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm, which makes it effective also for bone pain, joints pain, and deep muscle problems.
Don’t worry, far infrared rays are 100% safe. They’re NOT the ultraviolet rays which cause sunburn and skin cancer. FIR heat is so safe that neonatal care units now use infrared heating systems to keep infants warm.
How Exactly Does Light Therapy For Pain Work?
Evidence indicates that cells absorb photons and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that is utilized by cells. The resulting ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; and restore homeostatsis (balance).
The result is that the absorbed energy is used to repair the tissue, reduce pain, improve circulation and restore normalcy to impaired biological processes. In addition to accelerated healing, the penetrating light activates the production of endorphins and blocks pain-transmitting chemicals.
Recent studies have also proven the efficacy of 660nm (red) and 880nm (infrared) LED light in the management of sports and muscle injuries.
What Are The Best Light Therapy for Pain Home Devices?
After extensive research and collecting hundreds of real testimonials, I have found the top 2 infrared light therapy devices, which are also the most cost effective ones.
Remember, do NOT settle for a regular heating pad, which will warm your skin but can not reach deep into your muscles and bones. If you’ve ever used one of those cheap, low-quality $20 heating pads, you know just how ineffective they are. Half the time they don’t work and can burn your skin, reaching only the surface of it.
DPL Therapy System Deep Penetrating Light For Pain Relief
This all natural, non invasive light therapy for pain device is easy to use, it has no side effects and it’s engineered to last for years. I would recommend it more for smaller areas of your body, such as joints or specific pain points all over your body. For a larger area, your lower back, for instance, you will need a larger and more flexible device – A heating pad (see below).
You can read 30 different real reviews for this device – Right Here.
This is how to use the DPL system:
- Lay panels on or within 1/2 inch of the skin, or use the Velcro strap to hold panels in place on painful area.
- Press power button and release. You will hear a beep and the red LEDs will be visible. The other LEDs are in the infrared spectrum and can’t be seen by the human eye.
- The system will automatically turn off at the end of 17 minutes.
Therasage Far Infrared Heated Pad
To cover larger areas of your body and for muscle pain you will need a larger and more importantly a more flexible device – An InfraRed Heating Pad. The Therasage pads come in 3 different sizes: small (for small areas and for travel), medium (you can cover all of your back with it) and large (you can cover all of your body in it).
It has Digital multi-function time and temperature controller, including sleep mode, it provides negative ion therapy and it has natural jade stones.

Full Body Pain Relief
If you have pain in most parts of your body (from arthritis, fibromialgia etc), you could really use a portable infrared blanket, to get the pain relief all over your body.
I have never heard or read any bad review or lack of satisfaction from all infrared products for pain relief. I myself have the Richway Amethyst Biomat and it is probably the best thing I have ever done for my health.
