Scientific Benefits of Light Therapy

Scientific Benefits of Light Therapy

Light therapy is not a wellness fad or myth.

Researchers have conducted over a thousand peer-reviewed trials and studies on various kinds of light therapy (also referred to as photobiomodulation or low-level laser therapy). The research has shown an overwhelming amount of positive results. It’s a legitimate and widely-used health intervention to improve how you feel, look and perform.

In fact, NASA studied light therapy in the late 1980s and 1990s for use in space, and over the last two decades. The clinical consensus is that red and NIR light treatments are non-invasive, safe and effective, with a wide range of potential uses.

Light is essential for our health and cellular function, just like water, sleep, and the nutrients from food. The human body is designed to function with an abundance of natural sunlight. The truth is, most people do not get nearly enough sunlight spending over 90% of their lives indoors. Kala provides the highest-quality, medical-grade devices that can be used from the convenience of your own home.

All you have to do is sit or stand in front of the device and your body & cells absorb the healthy light. Kala treatments are also completely non-invasive and don’t include any ultra violet (UV) rays.

OPTIMIZES SLEEP

Red Light Therapy allows for the bodies circadian rhythm to adjust. The overstimulation we face from blue light (cellphones, tv, computers) hinder our ability to get deep, restful sleep. With Its low colour temperature and soothing effects on the body, Red Light Therapy promotes quality sleep. You can find a clinical study below. Refer to our Kala Glow Blog on sleep optimization below. Additional benefits include:

  • Promote your biological clock with balanced circadian rhythm.
  • Encourages deep sleep.
  • Alleviates over-stimulation from blue light.
  • Promotes melatonin production.

IMPROVES COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE

NIR Wavelengths from your Kala device can penetrate deep into the skin to provide therapeutic benefits at the cellular level. The red and near-infrared light photons penetrate through the skull and into brain cells and spur the mitochondria to produce more ATP. You can find a clinical study proving its benefits below. That can mean clearer, sharper thinking.
  • Stimulates brain cell function & mitochondria.
  • Improve mental acuity.
  • Clearer and sharper thinking.
  • Short-term memory.
  • Executive function.
  • Faster learning.
