Preparing to Have the Best Red Light Therapy Experience:

It’s important to prepare for Red Light Therapy if your goal is to maximize the benefits and achieve the best possible outcome. While this therapy can be highly effective on its own, there are certain steps you can take to contribute to better outcomes. Do all you can to prepare yourself physically and mentally for a transformative experience with Red Light Therapy!

Here are several basic things to consider to prepare for your session:

  • Remove jewelry, since jewelry can refract, or impact lights ability to pass through to its desired target.

  • Find a comfortable position for the duration of the session (lying flat, fetal position, knees bent)

  • Relax, focus on healing, and let the red light do its part.

  • Stay well hydrated to help deliver nutrients to the cells, keep joints lubricated, and keep organs functioning properly.

  • Get sufficient sleep, as this also plays an important role in your well-being.

  • Make sure to have at least a light snack prior to your appointments.

  • Be open with your facilitator about your condition to ensure the best possible care.

  • Use the supplied oxygen. Oxygen helps the light enter your cells. It maximizes the light.

  • Listen to healing music.

A Healing Mindset:

Having a healing mindset can be transformational and is equally important during your Red Light Therapy sessions. It is a powerful approach to navigating challenges and setbacks with resilience. When we embrace a healing mindset it opens us up to growth, forgiveness, self-compassion, and allows our bodies to heal.

A healing mindset enables us to let go of past hurts, release negative emotions, and cultivate inner peace. With a healing mindset, we can heal ourselves and inspire others to be mindful along their own journey of self-discovery and personal growth. It is through this mindset that we can create the best possible lives for ourselves and truly thrive!

Consistency is key when it comes to reaping the benefits of Red Light Therapy. Sticking to protocols and maintaining frequency is vital for achieving the best results. Just like any other wellness practice, it requires commitment and dedication.

Keep your scheduled appointments and avoid skipping sessions to allow your body to fully absorb the therapeutic benefits of Red Light Therapy. Whether your focus is skin rejuvenation, pain relief, reducing inflammation, emotional well-being, or general well-being, consistency will help maximize the therapeutic benefits Remember, taking small steps on a consistent basis can lead to remarkable transformations in your personal health and well-being.

Shifting from one protocol to the next will not net the most promising results possible. While every session of our red light therapy provides basic healing such as anti-inflammation, ATP production (energizes your cells), and skin repair (produces collagen), our state-of-the-art pulsing pods have over 75 pulsing protocols that address very specific ailments. Twelve sessions of a protocol is considered a course. We have qualified facilitators ready to guide you into the best protocol for you. We do this when you provide us with your most accurate and up-to-date medical history.

Lifestyle Changes:

Making lifestyle changes can be helpful when it comes to optimizing the therapeutic outcomes of Red Light Therapy. Here are some lifestyle changes you can easily make right away to contribute to your personal health and well-being:

  • Reducing sugar intake,

  • Eliminating processed foods.

  • Staying hydrated can create an ideal environment for our bodies to heal and rejuvenate.

  • Develop a 20/20/20 strategy. 20 minutes of physical exercise, 20 minutes of mindful awareness and meditation, and 20 minutes of personal growth.

The changes you make not only support the body's natural healing processes but can also heighten the effectiveness of Red Light Therapy and contribute to your overall well-being. Remember, small adjustments in our daily habits can lead to major improvements in our health and ultimately contribute to a more fulfilling life.

Part of a Complete Plan:

Our state-of-the-art red light therapy can be stand-alone or part an adjunctive part of your overall healing process. We have teamed up with some of the best practitioners in Utah. We often refer out to medical professionals we trust. Our entire goal is to help you heal.

In Conclusion:

Preparing for Red Light Therapy is not just about showing up, but how you show up. It does require a commitment to the process and making important lifestyle changes. Dedicating yourself to regular sessions and adopting healthy habits such as maintaining a diet high in water content and electrolytes, staying hydrated, and getting enough sleep, can optimize the benefits you can achieve. It is also important to follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare professional to ensure optimal results.
