When it comes to effective, non-invasive therapies for managing pain and discomfort, not enough people know about red/infrared light therapy.

At Bellagena, we use a medical-grade red/infrared machine to provide personalized pain-management therapy when and where you need it.

What is Red/Infrared Light?

The electromagnetic spectrum charts energy based on wavelengths. The shortest wavelengths are gamma rays and X-rays, and the longest (or lowest frequency) are radio waves and microwaves. Toward the high-frequency end of the chart, we have the spectrum of visible light—that is, the colors we can see. On either end of that spectrum is extreme ultraviolet (high-frequency invisible violet), and infrared (a lower-frequency red wavelength that’s invisible to us).

Even though we can’t see infrared, our skin can feel its heat. Red-light therapy operates in the same manner, but the wavelength is just short enough that we can see and feel the light.

What Does the Machine Do?

Our medical-grade light therapy machine utilizes LED lights to create the proper wavelength for your personalized treatment. Treatments last between 8 and 30 minutes. During treatment, we expose the afflicted part of your body to low levels of red and/or infrared light being emitted by the machine.

How Does It Work?

Red and infrared lights are forms of energy that interact well with the body instead of damaging it. Mitochond
