What is infrared light treatment?

Infrared therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to heal injuries and encourage weight loss. Infrared light penetrates deep into your body’s tissues to help your cells regenerate. 

Unlike ultraviolet light, infrared light isn’t harmful to your cells. Instead, infrared light promotes healthy circulation. Proper blood flow can help deliver oxygenated blood and essential nutrients to the areas that need it most.

What are some health benefits of infrared light?

Infrared light travels deep into your body, reaching muscles, nerves, and even bones. Once these wavelengths are inside your body, they’re absorbed by photoreceptors in your cells. 

Infrared light can then kickstart metabolic processes. Treatments that use infrared light can boost your metabolism and help your body shed unwanted pounds.

Infrared light treatments are also used for a variety of chronic conditions, including:

  • Weight loss
  • Inches loss
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Sciatica
  • TMJ
  • Back and neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

For some people, these treatments can help reduce inflammation and increase endorphin levels. If you’re struggling with chronic pain or stubborn injuries, infrared light may help encourage natural healing.

What can I expect from an infrared light treatment?

Infrared light treatments are painless and straightforward. During each treatment, you rest comfortably in a chair or on a table. LightWave Wellness staff then use special devices to deliver infrared light to the target area.

Treatments generally take 20 minutes. After your treatment is complete, you can resume your normal activities right away. There is no surgical incision, no invasive procedure, and no recovery time involved.


Are infrared light treatments safe?

Many people are curious about the potential risks of infrared light exposure. Infrared light isn’t linked to skin cancer or other health risks. 

Infrared light treatments carry no risk of burns, swelling, or skin damage. Instead, infrared light offers one of the safest treatments for chronic pain and weight gain.
