How To Use Red Light Therapy?
Using red light therapy is simple and easy to fit into your self-care routine. You can set up your red light therapy device on a chair or table or hang it on the wall or a door. Remove your clothes before using the device. Undergarments, such as underwear and socks, they won’t interfere with the treatment.
Position yourself 4 to 6 inches away from your red light therapy device for best results. You can sit or stand, it’s up to your preference.
Treat each area that needs attention for 5 to 15 minutes. At first, I recommend starting with 1 to 2 minutes with each area. Slowly increase the time over the next few weeks as your body gets used to the red light. I personally use the full body RLT and NIR at the same time for 12-20 minutes each day with 6-10 minutes on each side of my body.
Use your red light therapy device four to ten times a week depending on your symptoms. If you use it several times a day, allow at least 6 hours between treatments.
I recommend consistent, full-body use with special attention to your specific problem areas. Remember, when it comes to RLT, consistency is key. For long-term and full-body benefits, use the light therapy regularly.
