Near-Infrared Light (NIR) wavelengths penetrate deeper into the tissue to deliver energy to the body’s cells and can pass through bone to assist with healing deep wounds, muscle aches, nerve injury or joint pain Red Light Therapy | Tory Urban Retreat

If there was a pill that was proven to have powerful anti-aging effects on our skin, combat neurological disease, fight depression and anxiety, increase fat loss, speed recovery from exercise, increase strength and endurance, combat certain autoimmune conditions, fight hair loss and speed healing from injury-all with little to no side effects it would be a billion-dollar blockbuster drug. Hundreds of millions of people would be told to start taking it every day and doctors all over the world would call it a “miracle drug.”

Here is the crazy part- This drug exists but it’s not a pill, it’s Red and Near-Infrared Light.

Light therapy is not a fad, it may be one of the oldest therapeutic methods used by humans – historically as solar therapy by Egyptians, the Greeks (Heliopolis, the city of the sun, was famous for its healing temples) and other cultures. Red and Infrared Light and its therapeutic properties have been studied in China and Japan for over 30 years and now researchers in the rest of the world are also discovering the benefits of Red Light Therapy.

Red Light Therapy doesn't use drugs or surgery to boost your health.

It simply uses light—light that is also found naturally in the sun.

LED light therapy is a process of emitting low light wavelengths through the skin. Our LightForce LED Red Light Therapy Lights concentrate particular wavelengths of this natural light creating higher levels of 'natural light' than we would be exposed to while out in the sun. Unlike ultraviolet rays from the sun which damage the DNA of skin cells, the low light wavelengths emitted in this spectrum are perfectly safe. That means there’s no tanning or burning when you’re exposed to red light, it’s effects happen deep inside at the cellular level and can help to heal sunburn.

When we are unwell, injured, fatigued or stressed our mitochondria begin to produce excess nitric oxide, mitochondria are tiny organelles that are the energy power plants of all the cells in our body. Red and Near-Infrared Light wavelengths protect the cell from the damage that nitric oxide can potentially cause by absorbing the red light photons allowing the cell to continue effectively utilising oxygen and creating Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a complex organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, e.g. muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation and chemical synthesis. Found in all forms of life, ATP is often referred to as the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer and is a key element in cellular regeneration. When our cells have more energy, they simply perform better and the body follows suit. During a Red Light Therapy treatment, Red and Near-Infrared light reaches all the way into cell’s mitochondria to stimulate healing and regeneration, improving appearance, performance, and overall well-being.

It has been proven in over 3,000 scientific studies to have powerful anti-aging effects on our skin, revitalise skin cells, speed recovery from exercise, easing joint stiffness and inflammation, increase strength and endurance, reduce pain, fight hair loss and speed healing from injury-all with little to no side effects.

Light therapy is cutting edge technology first used by NASA to grow plants in space. NASA conducted further studies using LED infrared to speed up wound healing in humans, enhance tissue regeneration and treat the bone loss experienced by astronauts.

Our LightForce LED Red Light Therapy Lights have a variety of benefits and can be part of an overall wellness routine. Red light treatment can be used to aid in faster healing, immune boosting, anti- aging, mood enhancement, muscle recovery and more. LightForce LED Red Light Therapy Lights safely deliver optimal wavelengths and energy levels of Red and Near-Infrared light without any harmful UV rays or excess heat all in the comfort of your home- most people find it to be warm and relaxing.

As research into Red Light Therapy has progressed, it has become increasingly apparent that the treatment offers astonishing health benefits. Clinical studies are beginning to explore the diverse potential of red and near-infrared wavelengths for healing diverse physiological and mental conditions.


Red Light wavelengths measure between 630-700 nm. These are an ideal length to penetrate skin cells and sebaceous glands, offering benefits for skin texture and tone, smoothing fine wrinkles, promoting collagen production and generally rejuvenating the appearance of skin.


Near-Infrared Light (NIR) wavelengths are longer than red light wavelengths and measure between 700 nm and 1,100 nm. They penetrate deeper into the tissue to deliver energy to the body’s cells and can pass through bone to assist with healing deep wounds, muscle aches, nerve injury or joint pain.

Think of Red and Near-Infrared Light as food for your body, providing nutrient-dense nourishment that contributes to enhanced well-being.
