Red Light & Near Infrared LED Light Therapy
Did you know that the power of light can be used to improve your health? When combined, powerful red light (660nm) and near infrared (850nm) wavelengths can offer you an effective, therapeutic experience. Wavelengths are sent throughout the entire body to reduce oxidative stress while simultaneously stimulating the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This process is known as Photobionmodulation and can add measurable energy to the mitochondria of your cells, which can result in improvements such as reduced pain, rejuvenated skin and tissue regeneration.
VARIABLE OPTICS™ LIGHT THERAPY
Jacuzzi® Light Therapy is the only light therapy unit available to the industry that uses state-of-the-art Variable Optics™. Most light therapy units on the market are equipped with only a single optical output at 30 degrees, which unfortunately limits the amount of light that can be absorbed by the human body. Both red and near infrared light can be absorbed into your skin through light receptors. When a single optic is used, there is only a single acceptance angle, meaning reduced absorption.
With Variable Optics™ technology, a combination of seven to 60-degree optics results in multiple cross acceptable angles of light waves. This process enables the light to travel better into our cells, meaning better absorption and more benefits.
HOW IT WORKS
Jacuzzi® Light Therapy utilizes medical-grade LEDs to deliver the optimal wavelengths to the body, without adding additional heat. Each array is equipped with 70 red light LEDs in the 660 nm range and 70 near infrared LEDs in the 850 nm range. This unit is our most powerful and effective light therapy unit, as the production of up to 110 mw/cm² sets it apart from the rest.
RED LIGHT THERAPY
Red Light Therapy, which is also known as photobiomodulation and low-level light therapy, utilizes red low-level wavelengths of light to help you achieve a range of health benefits and wellness improvements. Red light is considered “low level” because it works at an energy density that is low when compared to other kinds of laser therapies. Did you know that Red Light Therapy was used by scientists to help grow plants in space in the early 1990s? The intense light from the red LEDs helped to promote both growth and photosynthesis of plant cells. After this success, red light was heavily studied for its ability to increase the energy inside human cells. Once the mitochondria in your cells has been exposed to red and near infrared wavelengths, the light is transformed into usable energy for your body through the process of cellular respiration.
NEAR INFRARED LED LIGHT THERAPY
The Jacuzzi® Light Therapy tower was crafted and designed to help you achieve better health through the delivery of near infrared at 850nm. This near infrared is absorbed deep below the surface of your skin, helping to penetrate deeper than both mid and far infrared. This light has been shown to help bring energy to cells, reduce pain, increase the production of collagen and elastin in skin cells, improve wound healing process, reduce inflammation, and even provide numerous anti-aging benefits.
LIGHT THERAPY IN YOUR SAUNA
Now that you know about the wonderful benefits of red and near infrared light therapy, you might be wondering how to bring it to your home. The Jacuzzi® Light Therapy tower can be easily attached to the door of your Clearlight® Infrared Sauna, or alternatively, used as a standalone light therapy system. When standing in front of the Jacuzzi® Light Therapy tower a 10-20-minute session is suggested, while on the other hand a 20-30 minute session is recommended for sitting.
