In the lexicon of therapeutic physical treatments, a sauna with “red light therapy,” or RLT, may sound novel. Indeed, the practice is relatively new, but growing evidence suggests its effectiveness and safety in treating a variety of ailments from joint pain to autoimmune disease.
What is red light therapy? It is a process through which long-wavelength red light emits from a device and penetrates the skin to a depth of approximately 5 millimeters. The light, in turn, stimulates healthy cell renewal and regeneration.
As always, you should consult your physician before implementing any new treatment regimen. But as you research sauna benefits, know that by inserting a Jacuzzi® Light Therapy Tower into a Jacuzzi Clearlight Sauna, a 15 to 20-minute session can increase and augment those benefits significantly. Here are 4 reasons to get a sauna with red light therapy.
A Sauna with Red Light Therapy is Safe
Like any other treatment, your first question is likely, “How safe is it?” And rightfully so. People often cringe at the thought of a “light” treatment because it conjures up images of them cooking under a lamp. Rest assured, this will restore you, not roast you. Follow the manufacturer instructions for best results.
A Sauna with Red Light Therapy Treats Numerous Conditions
When treatment is designed to intervene at a cellular level, the list of ailments it addresses grows rapidly. RLT is one of those treatments.
By strengthening the mitochondria within a cell, the low-frequency red light boosts a number of regenerative functions within your body. Add the infrared or full-spectrum sauna wavelengths to the mix, and you have an accelerated wellness program on your hands.
Conditions and processes aided by RLT include:
- Relief from muscle and joint pain/inflammation
- Weight loss
- Tissue regeneration and wound repair
- Collagen and elastin production in the skin
- Mood boost and stress management
- Eyesight improvement
Whether your goal is to prepare your body for your next athletic event or keep it primed for the hustle of everyday life, RLT and your sauna are on your side.
The Red Light Therapy Device is Usable on its Own
If RLT and a sauna session together sound like a big undertaking, don’t worry. You could always use a Jacuzzi Light Therapy Tower as a stand-alone treatment. So on days when you don’t feel like going for the full sweat, simply take your light therapy tower out of the sauna, and treat yourself to a session without excess heat.
The Jacuzzi Red Light Therapy Difference
While there are numerous options out there for RLT devices (e.g., masks, wands, etc.) a Jacuzzi Red Light Tower offers a benefit that other devices do not: Variable Optics™ technology. Most RLT devices focus light through one specific set of points. Variable Optics, which are only available in the Jacuzzi Red Light Tower, allow you to focus the lights into more discrete points for deeper penetration or diffuse the light over a greater area for more full-body wellness.
