The advantages of Red Light Therapy are numerous and diverse. Let’s explore some of the key benefits it offers:
- Promotes Wound Healing and Tissue Repair
- Red Light Therapy stimulates the healing process and accelerates tissue repair, making it highly effective for treating wounds and injuries.
- Supports Collagen Production / Anti-Aging
- By boosting collagen production, Red Light Therapy helps to rejuvenate the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and promoting a more youthful complexion.
- Reduces Swelling and Inflammation (Pain)
- Red Light Therapy has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help alleviate pain, reduce swelling, and improve overall comfort and well-being.
- Improves Joint Health
- By reducing inflammation and promoting tissue regeneration, Red Light Therapy can contribute to improved joint health, relieving stiffness and enhancing mobility.
- Improves Physical Performance, Muscle Recovery, and Energy Levels
- Athletes and fitness enthusiasts can benefit from Red Light Therapy as it aids in muscle recovery, improves physical performance, and boosts energy levels, enabling better workouts and faster recovery times.
- Increases Melatonin / Improves Sleep
- Red Light Therapy stimulates the production of melatonin, a hormone essential for regulating sleep patterns. This can help improve the quality of sleep, leading to a more rested and rejuvenated state.
These are just a few of the many advantages that Red Light Therapy offers. Its versatility and effectiveness make it a valuable treatment option for various health and wellness concerns.
But what exactly is Red/NIR Light Therapy?
The image illustrates the remarkable ability of red and near-infrared light to penetrate deeply into the human body, reaching cells, tissues, blood, nerves, bones, and even the brain.
Red light, with a wavelength between 600-700nm, offers a range of benefits for improving skin texture and tone. It helps in diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, promoting the production of collagen, and rejuvenating the overall appearance of both skin and hair.
On the other hand, near-infrared light (NIR), with a wavelength between 700nm and 1100nm, penetrates even deeper into the tissues. It provides assistance in wound healing, muscle recovery, alleviating nerve injuries, and relieving joint pain.
When we consider the bigger picture, it’s no surprise that red and near-infrared light provide such a wide array of benefits. Our ancestors, through evolutionary history, spent ample time outdoors, receiving these beneficial wavelengths of light from the sun. In contrast, modern humans, with our indoor environments, transportation systems, and office spaces, are often lacking proper illumination, leading to a state of “mal-illumination.”
Understanding the significance of red and near-infrared light and harnessing their potential can help restore a more balanced and beneficial light exposure, offering numerous advantages for our overall health and well-being.

Please note that any additional forms or paperwork required for insurance claims are the responsibility of the client.
Can children use Red Light Therapy?
While red and NIR light therapy has been shown to be safe in clinical studies, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before using it with children. All treatments involving children should be conducted under adult supervision.
Can pregnant or nursing women use the Quantum Red Bed?
Since there is no clinical research on Red Light Therapy specifically for pregnant clients, we do not offer this therapy to pregnant individuals. If you are lactating or nursing, it is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider before using Red Light Therapy.
Do I need safety glasses with this light?
While there is some scientific evidence suggesting that red and NIR LED light may benefit certain eye conditions, the brightness of Mito Red’s plug-in lights necessitates the use of safety glasses, especially when NIR is active. We provide eyewear to ensure eye protection during the sessions.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas and Quantum Science Energy Red Light Therapy Bed?
Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas and the Quantum Red Bed differs in terms of heat and therapeutic effects. Saunas utilize heat and a broad range of infrared wavelengths for overall health benefits, while the Quantum Red Bed focuses on targeted wavelengths of light for specific therapeutic effects.
Are there any side effects?
Quantum Science Energy Red Therapy Beds are FDA registered Class II devices and considered safe for use. However, mild effects can occasionally occur, including temporary tightness and redness of the skin, eyestrain, sensitivity, and headaches. To mitigate the risk of eye damage, we schedule sessions in smaller doses and provide blackout goggles for eye protection.
Are there any contraindications?
- Absolute contraindications for Red Light Therapy include recent burns or damaged skin.
- Red Light therapy has been clinically proven to aid in the healing of damaged skin, including cuts, burns, and blemishes. If you have any concerns, we advise consulting with your healthcare provider.
- Absolute Contraindications
- Malignant Cancer
- Eye Disease
- Light Sensitivity
- Relative Contraindications
- Fever or Infection
- Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
- Severe Bleeding and Blood Loss
- Use of Photosynthesizing Medications
- Concurrent use of steroids and red light therapy is not recommended, as steroids suppress the immune system while red light therapy may stimulate it.
- Other considerations
- For a more comprehensive discussion of contraindications, we recommend conferring with your health care provider.
Can I use the devices too much or for too long?
Excessive use of Red Light Therapy is not advisable. We typically start sessions at 10 minutes or less, depending on the individual’s circumstances, and recommend listening to your body. The maximum recommended duration is 10-15 minutes per session. We also suggest having at least one day off per week.
Can I wear makeup in the Quantum Red Bed?
Yes, wearing makeup during Red Light Therapy sessions should not affect the therapy’s effectiveness.
Can I wear clothes in the Quantum Red Bed, or should I remove them?
The choice is yours. Quantum Red Beds are in their own separate rooms to ensure privacy, so you can decide whether to keep your clothing on or remove it based on your comfort level.
Will the treatment interfere with or be affected by any medications I use?
If you are taking medications such as Tetracycline, Digoxin, or photosensitizing drugs, it is advisable to consult your physician before using Quantum Red Light Therapy.
How warm does the Quantum Red Bed get?
The sensation of heat experienced during Red Light Therapy is comparable to a warm day at around 80 degrees Fahrenheit (not the actual temperature of the room). You will feel the warmth on your skin when the light is turned on.
Will the Quantum Red Bed treatments cause detox symptoms?
It is possible to experience detox-related symptoms as your body adjusts to Red Light Therapy. If you encounter such symptoms, we recommend discontinuing treatments until the symptoms subside. Start with 2-3 minutes per treatment area and gradually increase the duration to 10 minutes over 2-3 weeks to help your body adapt. If detox-related symptoms persist or if you have any concerns about the use of red light therapy, we recommend stopping treatments and consulting with your healthcare provider.
What are the EMF levels?
Our Quantum Science Energy Red Light Therapy Bed is designed to emit low levels of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). This device emits no detectable levels of EMF.
