Boost Your Training With Red Light Therapy


Boost Your Training With Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy (RLT), also known as Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT), Energising Light Technology (ELT), or Photobiomodulation (PBM), utilises near-infrared and red light to deliver therapeutic benefits without producing unwanted heat. 

This innovative technology, now available at Third Space Spa, has been extensively studied for its positive effects on various aspects of health and performance, including reducing muscle soreness and improving strength and endurance.

Research has demonstrated that red light therapy can enhance skin health, boost collagen production, improve metabolism and blood circulation, and increase ATP production in cells, thereby providing energy and accelerating healing processes.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Today’s advanced light sources enable the effective use of near-infrared and red light for treatment without generating unwanted heat. These technologies, known as Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT), Energising Light Technology (ELT), or Photobiomodulation (PBM), have been employed by NASA for wound healing since the early 1990s. 

Extensive scientific studies have confirmed numerous positive effects on performance, regeneration, wound healing, and skin health. A primary focus of these studies has been the stimulation of collagen production by fibroblasts, enhanced metabolism and blood circulation, and increased ATP production in mitochondria, which are supplied with additional energy.

Benefits of Red Light Therapy


The anti-inflammatory properties of Red Light therapy can help to reduce muscle soreness and stiffness, speeding up recovery after training. Red light therapy has also been shown to improve endurance and muscle strength, making it an effective tool for athletes looking to improve their performance.


In addition to stimulating collagen and elastin production, red light therapy improves skin cell metabolism, reduces wrinkles, and improves the overall appearance of the skin.

Reduction of Skin Blemishes

Red Light Therapy can reduce sebum production and inflammation as well as blemishes like blackheads and pimples.

Improved Blood Circulation

The therapy boosts blood circulation, enhancing nutrient transport and waste removal, which are vital for skin health and overall metabolic performance.

Better Sleep Quality

Red light therapy helps regulate natural biorhythms and increases melatonin production, improving sleep quality and reducing symptoms of conditions like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
