Kansas City has no shortage of Wellness Centers, and it seems the newest trend in self-care and wellness is sports recovery: Cryotherapy, compression therapy, infrared sauna, Normatec, Nucalm and the newest and probably most impressive wellness treatment, Red Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation Therapy. These centers seem to be popping up everywhere but only one specializes in Red Light Therapy, Red Spectrum Health.
Until a few years ago, Red Light Therapy was only available in hand-held laser devices to treat localized areas of the body. Typically, a small area like the spine or joints could be treated to help relieve pain and inflammation. Treatments were so effective that clinicians began to wonder, “Why can’t we treat the entire body with Red Light Therapy?”
Full-Body Red Light treatments have only been around for a few years, and already the technology, research, and results are impressive.
“Our bed is incredibly powerful with 28,000 LED lights in four spectrums of Red and Near-infrared light. Most beds only have one or two spectrums of red light. Our treatments are 10-15 minutes, they are warm (not hot), comfortable, relaxing, and very effective.”
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
As we age, our cells become overwhelmed by free radicals. When that happens, the cells are unable to absorb enough oxygen to perform their daily functions, which causes even more stress on the cell, triggering oxidative stress. Oxidative Stress is considered to be the precursor to all major disease.
Red and Near-Infrared light can penetrate the deep tissues of the body. Specific wavelengths of Red Light trigger the cell to release oxygen-blocking free radicals. When the free radicals disperse, vasodilation occurs increasing circulation. The Mitochondria (the power plant of the cell) is then able to take in oxygen, which increases cellular energy (ATP), triggering cellular repair, and reversing oxidative stress.
In a full body light bed, all the cells in the body are being treated, essentially all systems in the body are affected and work better! Treatments are safe, non-invasive, non-toxic and completely natural.

What Does Red Light Therapy Do?
Red Light is FDA approved to reduce pain and inflammation, increase circulation, and increase joint motion but it does so much more. There are over 4000 laboratory studies on Photobiomodulation Therapy, and it does everything from improving cognitive decline to enhancing athletic performance, boosting weight loss and anti-aging skin rejuvenation by increasing collagen and reversing skin damage.
“When you increase circulation, decrease inflammation, and stimulate cellular repair, you have this cascade of wellness that takes place. Most clients feel better in a few sessions and feel the full benefits in just a few weeks!
Our clients sleep better, feel better, have more energy, and use RLT to help boost their training, athletic recovery, and weight loss. We have clients that use it for everything from treating the symptoms of skin conditions to inflammatory issues and arthritis. It can do so much, and we can tailor the treatments to each individual client.
Self-care is vital! We know our 10-minute relaxing treatment is a game changer for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time. Anyone already on a training, wellness or weight loss journey is going to experience notable improvement when adding Red Light Therapy to their routine. For example, fat loss nearly doubles when RLT is combined with proper nutrition and exercise.
I know how it feels to do all the right things and see no progress; I was that person! After I had my daughter, I had pain, my weight was not going down, I was working out, eating whole foods, and felt like I was spinning my wheels. It was frustrating, I wasn’t seeing any changes!
When I added Red Light Therapy to my routine, I was thinking clearer, my body felt stronger, my workouts were more effective because I did not fatigue as easily. I had more stamina, I felt more energetic, eventually my pain went away! My clothes were fitting better, and I was thinking, why doesn’t everyone know about Red Light Therapy?!
Oxidative stress is one of the reasons many people feel like they are failing with their wellness and fitness efforts. Red Light Therapy will reverse oxidative stress, and boost energy levels. Clients are healthier after each and every treatment!
We do one thing and we do it well, give our clients a luxury, personalized, RLT experience. Red Spectrum Health has the most advanced and powerful technology in town. We know how Red Light can enhance wellness and make a difference in the daily lives of our clients with quick, relaxing sessions.”
