Red Light Therapy

Read more...

Light therapy within 630-850 nanometers (nm) is a clinically studied way to improve cell function.

 

The light penetrates deep into the skin, muscle tissue, and bone and is absorbed by the mitochondria. The cell then, being “fueled up”, can use its internal wisdom to decide how to spend that energy, whether to use it to build collagen and elastin, or to assist with cellular regeneration.

 

The mitochondria is highly responsive to certain wavelengths of light. The light at elixir consists of 630nm, 660nm, 810nm, 830nm, and 850nm.

 

Near-infrared (NIR) light has been shown to decrease inflammatory markers associated with joint pain, sore muscles, and brain injuries.

 

Red light has been shown to stimulate hair growth, testosterone production, dermal (skin) tissue repair and collagen production.

FAQ

Question:

What kind of Red Light Therapy do you have?

We have a 6'4 tall, standing setup with the following :

  • BioMax 900 Blue/Red/Infrared Lights

Question:

What do I need to know about doing red light therapy?

Red/infrared light therapy involves you standing or sitting in front of a very large panel that emits different frequency light.
 
This very different from a tanning bed! These light do not emit UV and the intensity of each light can be adjusted, so it is generally safe to use for all ages (babies to adults).

Question:

What should I bring and wear?

You are in a private area the entire time, and can wear as much or as little you're comfortable with (the light does not penetrate clothing). You can stretch, meditate, or take calls during the treatment.

You can read, meditate, listen to a podcast, take a call, or watch a show during the treatment. Bring headphones!

Question:

How often should I do red light therapy for best results?

It depends on the goals!

For most conditions, which includes anti-aging and skin health, start with 2-3 times a week for the first few weeks, then reduce the treatments to every 1-2 weeks for maintenance.

For seasonal depression, pain relief, and inflammation use as needed.

Question:

Who should not do red light therapy?

The lights on these panels are adjustable, which means they could be adapted to most people and protocols. 

Question:

I'm interested in optimizing my health overall.


How can this help me?

If you're serious about longevity, you may want to start with the Health Optimization program which shows you where your health currently is using a test called Metabolomix+.

 

We then work together to correct your environment (both cellular and external) to match your long term health benefits. We can add on red light therapy, compression therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help reverse cellular age.

 

This protocol can be a 6+ month process.

Question:

How do I know what protocol I need?

Protocols are personalized based on you and your needs. There is a general guideline for the protocols, but things like lifestyle, and your goals play a big role in what is going to help you most.

Question:

What are HSA and FSA accounts?

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are health benefit accounts that allow you to contribute a portion of your salary or wages (before taxes) to cover certain out-of-pocket healthcare costs. You will usually receive a debit card you can use on eligible purchases.

If you’re unsure whether you have an HSA or FSA, check with your employer or health insurance plan administrator.

Question:

What offerings at Elixir Health and Wellness is eligible for HSA and FSA?

Everything at Elixir Health and Wellness is eligible HSA/FSA! You can use your card on therapies, protocols, purchases, even gift cards for loved ones.
