Our portal collates over 4000 studies conducted on the general topic of red light
therapy and its effects on your wellbeing and performance. Need answers to your questions
on red light therapy? We’re always happy to help you on your journey toward feeling better.
The outlook is promising: our analysis of current research indicates 82% positive outcomes, 10% neutral outcomes and just 8% negative outcomes. Studies also tell us about the most effective wavelengths for red light therapy: important because different wavelengths are effective for different use cases, known as “dosing”. Find out more about choosing the right one in this this blog post.
We’ve put together a selection of important studies that can help you in your decision to choose red light therapy. This database does not provide medical advice.
