Red Light Therapy
The Great “Energizer”
Because YOU Deserve a Pain-Free and Active Life Through Red Light Therapy Benefits
People of all ages are Getting Great Results with the AAH Red Light
“Our little 4 year old, Norah, got a mean mosquito bite on her arm while we were down by the river. When we got home we put on the essentials oils and then she very matter of factly said, “I want the light!” We gave it to her and she very independently put it to work on her bug bite. She asks for it often to help with her ouchies.”

Here are just a few ways we use the AAH Red Light
Red Light Therapy– the Great “Energizer”
Red light therapy is a safe, non-invasive, pain-free form of photobiomodulation (PBM). By placing the device on or near the skin and emitting a specialized 660nm red light, healing of joints, muscles and tissues is stimulated at the cellular level.
With over 40 years of scientific study, photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) has been proven to provide fast pain relief and increased healing with minimal, if any, side effects. What’s more, it has been shown to be an effective treatment for animals as well as people.
Red and near-infrared light aren’t blocked by blood or water as much as other wavelengths, making them ideal for treatment on a wide variety of injuries and conditions on and beneath the skin. These wavelengths are used on everything from burn treatment and flesh wounds to joint and muscle pain, sports injuries and more.
Until quite recently, red light devices made available to medical professionals were considered to be too expensive for the average public. But over the past several years, a number of improvements have been made to voltages, battery efficiency and light output, all packaged into smaller, more affordable devices — making them ideal for everyone from the athletic to the elderly, pet owners, those with horses and livestock, and many more.
Photonic red light therapy benefits the body’s tissues because they can absorb this type of light and convert it to cellular energy through a process known as ATP. Many studies have shown that this cellular energy promotes activity in your mitochondria — the part of the cell responsible for generating protein, collagen and healing agents. Therapy also improves blood flow in the treatment area, speeding healing and minimizing pain.
The many benefits of the AAH Red Light
When the correct wavelength is used, red light penetrates the skin to a depth of approximately 8-10mm, making it a beneficial treatment for numerous conditions and aliments. The therapy also sends signals to the brain, causing the release of endorphins (natural painkillers) and serotonin (the feel-good hormone). This physiological chain reaction leads to a number of health benefits, including:
- Pain management
- Increases lymphatic activity
- Strengthens the immune system
- Accelerates cell regeneration
- Increases circulation
- Muscle relaxation
- Increased antiviral properties
- Improved collagen production
- Regulation of serotonin
- and much more!
Due to this interaction, conditions that can benefit from red light are:
- Acute/Chronic Injuries
- Arthritis and Joint Pain
- Back Pain/Sciatica
- Mood disorders related to anxiety, depression and more
- Colic and other digestion issues
- Cough and Colds
- Poor circulation
- Viral infections
- Strained muscles and soreness
- General Health and Wellness
- Tendon and ligament injuries
- Cuts and open wounds
- Immune system disorders
- Body Soreness
- Lameness and Laminitis
- Stifle, hocks
- And much, much more!
An important thing to keep in mind is that research has shown no negative side effects from this form of red light therapy. The most commonly reported feelings resulting from therapy include a sense of relaxation and well-being, and a tingling warmth at the treatment area. Darker skin may require slightly longer treatment times, as melanin is more effective at blocking light than lighter skin.

The History of PBMT and Red Light Therapy
Scientists, researchers, doctors and even NASA have come to understand the undeniable evidence and wide range of possibilities that PBM offers.
Forty years of research, spanning thousands of clinical trials and case studies, have been dedicated to PBM, PBMT and how red light therapy benefits humans and animals. From the battlefield to zero gravity and everywhere in between, it has been shown to dramatically speed the healing of wounds and injuries while reducing pain — all with little to no side effects.
PBMT is now available to the public at a more affordable cost than ever before, making this revolutionary therapy a reality for millions searching for a safe, effective solution to chronic pain, the healing of injuries and so much more.
Exhaustive research has shown no negative side effects from PBMT. There have been some reports of mild, temporary discomfort after treating chronic conditions, a natural occurrence as the body adjusts to the treatment.
