Red Light Therapy Improves Healing

Outer Space Research Comes to Oahu

Red Light Kailua was established to provide the men and women of Oahu a simple and relaxing way to experience total body rejuvenation using red light therapy.

Researched by scientists at NASA, it was found that red light helped speed the healing of astronaut wounds during orbital missions. Dermatology and sports medicine practioners began using red light therapy since it was shown to positively affect cell renewal.

Red light penetrates 3-4 mm under the skin’s surface and stimulates the production of white blood cells and adenosine triphosphate. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to cellular energy which stimulates the body’s natural healing processes and can increase circulation and the formation of new capillaries. It has been shown to increase lymph system activity and the production of collagen and fibroblasts, improve phagocytosis or cellular cleanup, stimulate tissue granulation and reduce inflammation. The increased level of white blood cells attacks the dead and dying cells in the body and repair nerve endings, damaged joints and scar tissue. Body aches and pains can be reduced through the repair of underlying nerve damage, torn muscles and built up scar tissue.

Red light therapy is a relaxing and energizing therapy that delivers the natural healing and rejuvenating benefits of a specific range of light that does not contain ultra violet rays. It’s a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses no chemicals and has no harmful side effects. The benefits of red light therapy accumulate with each treatment. This means that with every 20- minute session, patients will see additional results. The long-term benefits have been shown to lower blood pressure, relieve body pains and arthritis, reduce stretch marks, scars and acne and improve strength of hair and nails.

Red Light Kailua is open seven days a week with a location in Kailua, and a new one opening in the McCully Shopping Center, Honolulu. Their website provides for convenient on-line booking where sessions can be purchased individually or as part of a package.
