Red Light Therapy is one of the best treatments for health and wellness. This non-invasive treatment is simple yet powerful, and provides optimal benefits for your overall well-being. Scientific studies have shown that incorporating light therapy into your daily regimen will boost vitality and help heal your body. Explore the many ways our treatments and wraps can help you improve and heal your mind, body and spirit.
Many people trying to lose weight just want to look better in the mirror or at the beach. A wide variety of therapies to target fat and improve appearance are called “body contouring” or “body sculpting. But many of them don’t work and/or produce troublesome side effects.
Red light therapy is completely natural & noninvasive and has proven to be an effective option for changing how your body looks.
Red light in 635nm is scientifically proven to create lipolysis in fat cells, draining toxins out of the cell in a uniquely safe and effective way. Studies show that 635nm waves decrease fat mass at twice the speed of exercise alone.
The Lipo Wrap is especially helpful with stubborn fat areas where spot reduction is needed. This could be the key factor in unlocking fat loss and spot reduction by creating lipolysis and increasing the blood flow circulation to those fatty areas. The fat cells temporarily rupture and drain waste from within the cells into the interstitial layer so that the body can dispose of the waste naturally.
Studies have shown that red light therapy helps:
- Deliver a significant reduction in waistline circumference, including numerous parts of the body like the thighs, hip areas, and arms.
- Combined with exercise, you will lose more fat than just exercising alone.
- Increase in skeletal muscle mass.

In summary, clinical research and the accounts of many health experts show that red light therapy can be an effective, safe, and natural treatment for weight loss and fat reduction, as well as an efficacious method of body contouring and cosmetic improvement. Following the recommended protocol will help you flush out the released waste from your body, so it will not be reabsorbed by the fat cells. If rapid inch loss is your goal, then the Lipo Wrap is the wrap for you.
Cellulite starts to show up as we age, thanks to less elasticity in the skin. Women tend to get cellulite more often than men based on the balance between estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Cellulite results when hormone harmony is disrupted by hormone-altering circumstances like pregnancy, PCOS, puberty, etc. Other factors include poor diet or unhealthy lifestyle, toxins in the body, weight gain, and a lack of physical activity. So, while cellulite is pretty hard to avoid – luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to keep your skin firm, smooth, and glowing.
So let’s start by what cellulite is exactly. Cellulite is the dimpled-looking skin that commonly occurs in the thigh region. It forms when fatty tissue deep in the skin pushes up against connective tissue. The deeper the cellulite has progressed, the longer it will take to see the results. Since red and near-infrared light promotes and enhances blood circulation and the release of fatty acids from fat cells, it may very well be the best and most effective method to get rid of stubborn fat cellulite.
Pairing exercise with red light therapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce body fat and cellulite.
Exercise stimulates the body's metabolism to break down subcutaneous fat and build leaner body mass. A study has found that cellulite and thigh circumference was reduced in individuals who engaged in a high-intensity treadmill program combined with red light therapy.
The Lipo Wrap is the wrap for you if you want to treat your cellulite. It is recommended to start with a commitment of 20 minutes 3-5 times per week. When the cellulite is deep, It would be recommended to use the Lipo wrap every day for 20 minutes to achieve faster results. You will see results after two weeks!
Performance & Recovery
Recovery and performance go hand in hand. To improve fitness, it pays to work out consistently. You must gradually push your body to higher performance levels to get bigger, stronger, and faster. For most people, that’s always been the most significant focus of exercise and training. The recovery process, the downtime between training sessions, is essential for staying healthy as you work out.
Light therapy also helps healing and recovery by improving blood flow and oxygen availability.
Cooling down, resting, and getting good sleep between workouts gives your body time to replenish its energy reserves and heal muscle & tissue damage. Quality recovery time helps you perform better from acute soreness and inflammation. Proper recovery also helps prevent fatigue and injuries, so you can stay healthier over time, avoid chronic problems, and improve longevity.
Red Light therapy treatments have several mechanisms of action on muscle cells, like improvement in cellular ATP energy synthesis, glycogen synthesis, oxidative stress reduction, protection against exercise induced-muscle damage, and the addition of new myonuclei supporting muscle hypertrophy. Light therapy’s beneficial effects may improve physical performance and enhance post-exercise recovery. Light therapy has also promoted better fatigue resistance in bouts of exercise or strength training programs.
There are two primary ways to use light therapy treatments and exercise. You can do it before or after your workout. The choice is up to you, depending on your health and fitness goals. If you do your treatment before exercise, you can pre-condition your body to support more robust muscle performance. Pre-exercise light therapy can also help you limit muscle damage and strain, negatively impacting performance because of inflammation, soreness, and longer recovery times. Red light therapy after an exercise will speed the recovery process by accelerating your muscle adaptation to exercise. Light therapy after training also helps the body process acute inflammation from working out.
Red light therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment that uses LEDs to deliver red and near-infrared wavelengths of light to the body and cells. It’s a popular modality with trainers and sports medicine professionals, and a growing body of peer-reviewed clinical research shows that red light therapy treatments can improve pain symptoms. Red light therapy has proven versatile for treating many pain types, including chronic, joint, neck, osteoarthritis, and more. Because it provides targeted pain relief, it's incredible for various conditions.
Red light can even help support longer, more restful sleep, which in turn also contributes to the healing of your body.
You could see this form of therapy for pain like infrared light penetrating the skin without cutting it. It does not mask the symptoms of pain but rather encourages healing of the cause of said pain. Once absorbed, the light energy kicks off a whole series of metabolic events, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level. There is an increase in blood flow, allowing the parts of the body to receive the oxygen and nutrients they need in order to function more effectively. Regeneration is stimulated, and inflammation and pain are reduced. In many cases, after a course of treatment with infrared light, the pain is gone for good.
Red light therapy devices deliver concentrated wavelengths of therapeutic light to your skin and cells, which can help reduce oxidative stress and stimulate cellular energy production (adenosine triphosphate or ATP). This helps your body power itself, leading to many benefits, including improved blood circulation and reduced pain and inflammation.
Your skin changes with age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as supple and smooth as it once did. Over time, the skin begins to wrinkle. Things in the environment, like ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun, can make the skin less elastic. Red light therapy can help reduce wrinkles and reverse signs of photo-aging, such as the breakdown of elastin fibers that causes the skin to sag and stretch.
Red light therapy improves mitochondrial quality and function and encourages glowing, youthful skin. Consistent use of light therapy can increase collagen synthesis, promote healing and decrease inflammation.
Optimized energy output and two clinically proven wavelengths of red and near-infrared light work together on a cellular level to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, stimulating fibroblast cells and targeting exacerbated collagen to restore elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and correct pigmentation from sun damage.
The red light reduces inflammation, pigmentation, and redness and helps prompt cellular repair and circulation for a more vibrant complexion. The near-infrared targets deeper fibroblast cells, stimulating new collagen and elastin production, resulting in plumper, firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
- Get Glowing Youthful Skin
- Reverse Photo Aging
- Reduce Wrinkles
- Increase Collagen Synthesis
- Advance Healing of Scars
and Bone Regrowth
Red light therapy greatly aids in healing breaks, fractures, bone defects, and has also been shown to increase bone density. It stimulates energy production in the bone cells. It improves blood vessel formation, circulation, and blood flow to the affected area. It regulates and decreases inflammation, increases bone growth factors, and enhances the production of collagen and procollagen, stimulating bone cell growth. The power of the beams lessens the sensitivity and look of scars caused by stretch marks, smoothening and flattening their appearance. With fifteen to twenty sessions spread over several weeks, you can expect to see an improvement somewhere between 20 to 50%.
Stimulate Hair Growth
Red light therapy treatment is an effective and safe way to stimulate hair growth. When red and infrared light is applied to the scalp, the body can harness the light and turn it into cellular energy. Light wavelengths can reduce oxidative stress in the body, helping the body to regrow hair. Red light stimulates the mitochondria and promotes blood flow across the scalp. In addition, red light therapy can influence the creation of new capillaries, bringing essential nutrients and oxygen to cells which leads to a significant increase of hair density, and is successful in both short and long-term treatments.
Viral Infections & Increasing Testosterone
Based on several informal trials, LED red light therapy helps tremendously in healing viral warts. It can also shorten the recurrent episodes of herpes and cause a noticeable reduction of related pain and inflammation. It can accelerate healing, reduce symptoms and influence the length of the recurrence of the flare-up. It has been proven to be an effective suppression therapy for Herpes rather than having a direct virus-inactivation effect.
Studies even demonstrated that consistent light therapy could increase testosterone levels with only Red light therapy when used on your genitals.
Findings suggest that light as medicine effectively improves thyroid function, promotes reduced TPOAb-mediated autoimmunity, and increases thyroid echogenicity in patients with CAT hypothyroidism.
Various studies were conducted in Brazil using laser light therapy, all with impressive results. The study showed that along with red light therapy, there was a significant positive change in many participants’ thyroid antibodies, fewer inflammatory cells and white blood cells, less overall thyroid damage, as well as normalization of the size of the thyroid gland. Details of these studies proved that light medicine is effective in treating thyroid conditions, helping patients lead healthier lives without depending on medications as much, if at all.
The Lipo wrap has wavelengths that could help you deal with your Thyroid problems. To measure your results, please get your thyroid levels tested before and six weeks post-treatment to gauge the results.
Our brain is a flexible organ in the sense that it is constantly adapting. How could we keep our brains healthy and in good shape? To be cognitively fit, we must work on building our cognitive reserve. And while genetics determine the health of our brain, there are things we can do to enhance our cerebral health and cognitive fitness. It's important to remember that the body and brain go hand in hand, which is where we talk about a healthy body for a healthy brain.
Lately, the research field has shown interest in red light therapy (RLT) and pulsed electromagnetic fields’ (PEMF) benefits on the brain. Multiple studies have shown that RLT and PEMF can accompany neuroprotection and assist patients suffering from Dementia, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease. Additionally, we will also discover together what the benefits of RLT and PEMF are for people suffering from Migraines, a Traumatic Brain Injury, or who have suffered from a Stroke.
Alzheimer’s Disease (AD):
The world today is more interested in alternative treatments and therapies when it comes to neurodegenerative diseases. Following this statement, a lot of studies have been conducted in order to see how the brain would react to PBM in patients with Alzheimer’s. Knowing that mitochondrial dysfunctions are well documented in the brains of patients with AD, PBM’s role is to increase cell viability, which is the number of living cells, allows mitochondria to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), responsible for the cell’s energy.
On the one hand, pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) therapy has been shown to result in improved blood and tissue oxygen levels. With respect to brain oxygenation, PEMF therapy may be useful in the early stages of AD. On the other hand, improving sleep may help slow the progression of the disease.
Numerous studies have been ultimately conducted demonstrating that patients receiving PEMF therapy experienced improved sleep, leading to decreased agitation and better cognitive function
If you are interested in trying PBM and PEMF as a complementary treatment for AD, the NeuroWrap Pulse would be the ideal choice. Don’t forget to first take a look at the PEMF @contraindications and if you see yourself in there, consider getting our NeuroWrap.
*Always ask your doctor if you are a suitable candidate for any Neuro products before getting one.
To have detailed information on how PBM can help with AD, look at the studies below that have used 810nm 40Hz.
Parkinson’s Disease (PD)
An article (1) published in 2018 has demonstrated that Parkinson’s Disease could be connected to mitochondrial dysfunction.
As it has been proven, Red Light Therapy’s (RLT) main goal is to heal and protect our tissues, neurons and glial cells.
The ability of RLT to increase cell viability -number of living cells- in neurons, allows mitochondria to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is responsible for the cell’s energy.
Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) therapy is non-invasive and has been found to be safe for patients with PD. It has been suggested as a complementary treatment to PD (2). Through the current focus on alternative treatments, it has been demonstrated that PEMF could improve the patients’ quality of life by acting on PD symptoms such as slowness of movement, along with walking difficulties and tremor.
If you are interested in trying RLT as a complementary treatment for PD, the NeuroWrap Pulse could be perfect for you. Don’t forget to first take a look at the PEMF @contraindications and if you see yourself in there, consider getting the NeuroWrap.
*Always ask your doctor if you are a suitable candidate for any Neuro product before getting one.

The number of brain diseases that could be treated today with Photobiomodulation has widely increased. These brain diseases include neurotrauma, neuropsychiatric disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. Photobiomodulation is a practical treatment option when it comes to central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Following the recent attention given to PBM in the research field, it has been proven that PBM could indeed enhance neuroprotection by activating antioxidant and anti-inflammatory pathways.
If you want to protect your brain and prevent any neurological decline, then the NeuroWrap is your new friend.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI):
Traumatic brain injuries are generally the result of a severe blow or shock to the head or body. It has been shown through numerous studies that PBM as an alternative treatment could result in the increase of the brain volume, the development of functional connectivity, the increase of cerebral perfusion and a significant improvement in neuropsychological test scores.
Strokes are the most frequent causes of adult disability because they result in basic motor dysfunction. Nowadays, there is a huge interest building in the research field when it comes to Red Light Therapy (RLT) and its benefits to the brain and for strokes.
A 2007 study (1) reported significant and long-lasting results of RLT treatment in ischemic stroke survivors who were reevaluated 90 days later, and the results were still evident.
Another study led in 2016, saw results of a decrease in pain and a slowing down of the rate of muscle fatigue
A study in 2018 has described a significant increase of 200% in Brain Drive Nooro-Tropic Factor (BDNF) and 50% in Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) -growth factors- involved in the neuroplasticity process during the stroke.
If you want to know more about BDNF and VEGF, check the links attached.

Migraine is one of the most widely spread disorders in the world. It is estimated to affect approximately 148 million people. It is well known that a migraine is a moderate or severe headache that can cause intense throbbing pain or also a pulsing feeling on one side of the head.
A systematic review study has evaluated the safety and effectiveness of photobiomodulation on migraines. One of the studies included in the systematic review suggested that LLLT could eventually be an alternative therapy for migraines.The authors reported an improvement in pain, a significant reduction in headache episodes, and a decrease in the duration of the episodes. Another study (also included) found that there was a significant decrease when it came to the frequency of the episodes, one month after the treatment.
The latest studies suggest that migraines are most probably the result of a variety of factors such as abnormal brain activity (PEMF may stimulate the body’s internal organs, counting the brain) changes on an emotional level (PEMF was FDA approved treatment for anxiety and depression in 2006), on a physiological level and on a hormonal level (the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland that are responsible for hormonal production can also be stimulated by the PEMF).
Since migraines could be considered as an electrical storm in the brain, treatment with pulsed electromagnetic fields has proven to be very efficient.
The purpose of PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) is to stimulate the brain and restore normal function, while simultaneously minimizing inflammation.
If you want relief from your migraines, the NeuroWrap Pulse could be perfect for you. Don’t forget to first take a look at the PEMF @contraindications and if you see yourself in there, consider getting the NeuroWrap.
Focus and Creativity
Do you fear growing older and have memory and focus problems? Do you try to keep your brain healthy and in “good shape”? We all know someone who has experienced some sort of cognitive decline with time. Here is how red light therapy (RLT) could become your new treatment modality.
A study found improvements in high-level cerebral functions such as rule-based prefrontal learning, sustained concentration and short-term memory in healthy young subjects.
The group that led this study also conducted another one, in which they found that PBM improved both cerebral hemodynamic processes and oxygenation, which are essential for superior cognitive functions.
PEMF therapy, used for cognitive wellness, has been proven successful in the reduction of brain fog, mood improvement and even in treatments of depression. The application of PEMF improves circulation and modifies neuro-chemical disturbances. The outcome is a more balanced hormonal and cell respiratory response, which leads to improved sleep quality and has a direct impact on your brain, specifically on your cognitive function and ability to focus.
If you want to protect your brain and prevent any cognitive decline, then the NeuroWrap Pulse is your new friend. Don’t forget to first take a look at the PEMF @contraindications and if you see yourself in there, consider getting one of our NeuroWraps.
Most people know the importance of sleep and know when we're not getting enough: we may experience increased irritability, lack of mental focus, trouble recalling details, etc. Proper sleep is not just essential for overall health and well-being, but it can also stimulate creativity!
A proper night's sleep is key to our well-being, and red light therapy (RLT) can be helpful in relaxing us at nightfall. Generally, sleep is affected by us being exposed to unnatural light, like the blue light produced by our phones, televisions and computers. This can actually send confusing signals to our brain, which may make it more difficult to drift off to sleep at night. RLT at night before bed can provide a way to redress overexposure to blue light and readjust our circadian rhythm.
PEMF could be set to alpha brain waves (7-14Hz). We begin the alpha brainwave stage by first closing our eyes and getting relaxed or by entering into non-visual reflections. We are conscious during this stage, but our consciousness is enlarged (b). Alpha is the locus of creativity in which our greatest ideas are born. It is the stage where we start visualizing, often in pictures. This relaxed mode of consciousness is the most important part of the process, we can read faster, work through problems, acquire languages, and store information (memorize).
This is where the subconscious mind operates.
If you want to get in touch with your creative side, the NeuroWrap Pulse could be perfect for you. Don’t forget to first take a look at the PEMF @contraindications and if you see yourself in there, consider getting the NeuroWrap.
