Infrared & Near Infrared Light Therapy
Alo Health uses a general wellness device that stimulates photobiomodulation. Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a non-invasive therapy that uses light energy to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation in various parts of the body. It is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or red light therapy.
PBM works by delivering specific wavelengths of light, usually in the red or near-infrared spectrum, to the affected area of the body. This light energy is absorbed by cells in the body, stimulating a series of biochemical reactions that can improve cellular function and promote tissue repair.
PBM has been shown to have a wide range of potential applications, including:
- Pain relief: PBM can help to reduce pain and inflammation in various parts of the body, making it a popular for conditions such as arthritis, back pain, and muscle soreness.
- Wound healing: PBM can help to promote wound healing and reduce the risk of infection.
- Skin health: PBM can improve skin health and appearance by reducing wrinkles, improving skin texture and tone, and promoting collagen production.
- Improved immune function: PBM may help to boost the immune system and reduce the risk of illness.
- Improved cognitive function: PBM has been shown to have potential benefits for cognitive function and mental health, including reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
It is important to note that while there is some research supporting the benefits of PBM, more research is needed to fully understand its effectiveness and to determine the best methods of administration. It is always best to consult with a healthcare provider before beginning any new treatment regimen.
Your Light Session
Before your 1st session, you will fill out a simple waiver & intake form. You will then go to a private room for your session. Our technician will provide a safety overview, including how to position yourself. The device will be turned on and privacy will be provided so you can expose the skin for your targeted issues. Many choose to remove their shirt to allow for maximum skin exposure. We recommend that you wear easily repositioned clothing to your session.
During your Red Light Therapy session, you’ll feel a mild warmth coming from the lights. You can choose to wear safety glasses (provided) during your session or simply close your eyes, relax and soak up the glow!
Red Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation uses very low levels of heat that do not hurt or burn the skin. Unlike tanning booths, Red Light Therapy won’t expose skin to damaging UV rays. Like all services and modalities for health and wellness, Red Light Therapy can be an effective tool when used consistently.
Red light therapy is generally considered safe and non-invasive, and there are no known contraindications or interactions with medications. However, as with any treatment, it is always best to consult with a healthcare professional before starting red light therapy, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions or are taking any medications.
That being said, there are certain medical conditions that may require caution when using red light therapy. For example, people with a history of epilepsy or seizures should be cautious when using flashing lights, as this can trigger seizures in some individuals. Additionally, people with photosensitivity or a history of skin cancer may need to take extra precautions when using red light therapy, as exposure to light can sometimes exacerbate these conditions.
In general, if you are taking any medications and are considering red light therapy, it is best to consult with your healthcare provider to ensure that there are no potential interactions or contraindications.
