Who Should Not Use Red Light Therapy?


At Live 5D Health, we are dedicated to providing our members with the best holistic health treatments available. Our Red Light Therapy bed is a popular choice for those seeking to rejuvenate their skin, reduce inflammation, and enhance overall wellness. However, like any treatment, Red Light Therapy isn’t suitable for everyone. In this post, we’ll explore who might need to reconsider using Red Light Therapy and why it’s important to conduct your own research before starting any new health regimen.

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy (RLT) involves exposing the body to low levels of red or near-infrared light. This type of light therapy has been shown to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation by penetrating deep into the skin and muscles. It’s a non-invasive treatment widely praised for its benefits in skin health, pain reduction, and accelerated recovery.

Who Should Avoid Red Light Therapy?

While Red Light Therapy is safe for most people, certain individuals should avoid it or seek professional advice before beginning treatments. These include:

1. Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is a time when the body undergoes significant changes, and it’s crucial to be cautious with any treatment. The effects of Red Light Therapy on unborn babies are not well-studied, so it’s best to err on the side of caution and avoid RLT during pregnancy.

2. Individuals with Photosensitivity

People who have photosensitive conditions, such as lupus or porphyria, or those taking medications that increase sensitivity to light, should avoid RLT. The increased exposure to light can exacerbate their conditions, leading to discomfort or adverse reactions.

3. Those with Severe Skin Conditions

Individuals with severe skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema should seek medical advice before trying RLT. While light therapy can be beneficial for some skin issues, it can worsen others, depending on the condition’s nature and severity.

4. People with Eye Conditions

Direct exposure to red or near-infrared light can be harmful to the eyes. Individuals with eye conditions or those prone to eye issues should avoid RLT or use appropriate eye protection during sessions which we will provide you with at the centre.

Empower Yourself with Knowledge

At Live 5D Health, we encourage all our members to be well-informed about any treatment they consider. Red Light Therapy offers numerous health benefits, but it’s essential to understand the potential risks and how it interacts with your specific health needs. By taking control of your health decisions and practicing health sovereignty, you can ensure that your wellness journey is both safe and effective.
