Red and infrared light therapy can offer a number of benefits for people who workout regularly. The most common benefits associated with this type of therapy are faster recovery times from workouts, improved circulation, and reduced inflammation.
What is Red and Infrared Light Therapy?
Red and infrared light therapy is a type of photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy. PBM therapy uses visible and near-infrared light to stimulate cells and improve cellular function.
Red light therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including wrinkles, scars, joint pain, and muscle soreness. It is also sometimes used to boost energy levels or improve sleep.
Infrared light therapy penetrates deeper into the body than red light, making it more effective for treating deep-seated conditions such as inflammation. It can also be used to improve circulation and reduce pain.
Planet Fitness offers red and infrared light therapy as part of its HydroMassage beds. These beds use high-intensity light to promote relaxation and relieve pain. They also offer other benefits, such as improved sleep and reduced inflammation.
If you are interested in trying red or infrared light therapy, Planet Fitness is a great place to start. The beds are affordable and the sessions are short, so you can easily add them to your workout routine.
The Benefits of Red and Infrared Light Therapy
Red and infrared light therapy can benefit your workouts by reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and reducing pain. This type of therapy can also help to improve your range of motion and increase your flexibility.
Boosts Muscle Recovery
One of the major benefits of using red and infrared light therapy is that it can help boost muscle recovery. This is due to the fact that the light helps increase blood flow and circulation, which in turn helps to remove lactic acid and other toxins from the muscles. In addition, the heat generated from the light can help to relax muscles and reduce inflammation.
Reduces Inflammation and Joint Pain
Red and infrared light therapy can help to reduce inflammation and joint pain, making it an ideal treatment for athletes. This type of therapy can also help to improve circulation and increase collagen production, making it beneficial for both the muscles and the skin.
Aids in Workout Performance
Red and infrared light therapy can help improve your workout performance by aiding in the production of ATP. ATP is the energy source that your muscles use during exercise. Light therapy can help increase ATP production, which can lead to improved muscle function and reduced recovery time.
In addition, light therapy can help reduce inflammation and pain associated with exercise. Inflammation is a natural response to injury or stress, but it can cause pain and stiffness. Red and infrared light therapy can help reduce inflammation, which can lead to less pain and faster recovery.
