NON-TOXIC PAIN RELIEF- How can Infrared light therapy help with pain management?

April 13, 2020


Nobody deserves to live in pain or depend on medication to enable everyday activities, but thanks to non-toxic, non-invasive, and affordable Infrared light therapy, lives around the country are changing for the better.
At Anika Skincare and Makeup, we offer complimentary Infrared Light Therapy for pain during any one hour or longer massage treatment. This is also called LED Phototherapy or Photobiomodulation. Click here to see massage menu and facial menu that offers LED Light Therapy.


What is Infrared light therapy?

Much like plants, scientific research has shown that human bodies can absorb particles of light (photons) and transform that light energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy needed to power metabolic processes, improve cellular performance, and encourage tissue repair and regeneration. Modern light therapy utilizes three types of wavelengths; Blue, Red, and Infrared. Blue and Red light therapy provide great aesthetic benefits such as acne treatment and increased collagen production, helping to achieve the signature youthful glow people associate with light therapy facials.


Infrared, however, offers a whole new set of medical benefits that are clinically proven to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface layer to target muscle and joint pain at the source, providing much-needed relief for people who suffer from inflammation and injury.


How does Infrared light therapy work?

In the same way that plants grow by getting their energy from the sun during photosynthesis, Infrared light therapy -- or “low-level light” therapy -- uses specific, proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level. Infrared light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.


When tissue is damaged, pain occurs. Human tissue can be compromised in a variety of ways; a sprained ankle, a surgical procedure that didn’t heal properly, or even an overly intense gym session can all cause bodily discomfort and emotional distress. Pain can be short-term or long-term, and because it presents itself differently in every person, it can be extremely difficult to treat.


Medically prescribed pain killing drugs work by blocking pain receptors in the brain, alleviating the symptom but not fixing the cause. Even worse, opioids can be extremely addictive and the risk of addiction significantly increases when they are used on a regular basis to manage long-term chronic pain. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse , more than 90 Americans die by opioid overdose every day.


Chronic pain management is an American health crisis. Thankfully, there are other treatment options available.


How can Infrared light therapy help with pain management?


When it comes to treating and healing medical conditions with light therapy treatment, wavelength is key. Compared to blue light therapy, near-infrared wavelengths can penetrate deep into the muscle & joint tissue to alleviate pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation.

Infrared light therapy provides compromised cells with extra energy to accelerate the natural repair of compromised tissue cells, foster cell production, and restore homeostasis within the body.


Originally developed by NASA engineers for pain management and injury treatment on long-term space missions, light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of pain conditions.


From chronic pain management to improved exercise tolerance , Infrared light therapy has been clinically proven to provide therapeutic benefits across an array of medical applications, penetrating deep into the skin’s surface to enhance health at the cellular level.


Infrared is a modern approach to chronic pain management. Free from harmful chemicals and the risk of dependency, Infrared light therapy is a more natural method of healing your body from the inside out. Rather than simply masking pain, Infrared light therapy works differently to treat the underlying condition, enhancing tissue repair and performance, and allowing your body to perform at an optimal level of health and wellness.


With Infrared light therapy technology and unique body contouring device design, you can regain and maintain your body’s natural vitality without the need for prescription drugs and their dangerous side effects, leading to long-lasting, life-improving pain management you can rely on.
