Red Light Therapy 

Our red light therapy sessions available in West Auckland feel like the warmth of the sun on your skin and provide a range of health benefits using the power of red and near-infrared light. The light penetrates your tissues, stimulates cellular change and enables the mitochondria to produce more energy in the cells, which has a flow on effect for boosting health. 

 

Our sessions are not only relaxing but also effective in supporting skin health, reducing pain and inflammation, improving sleep, supporting injury recovery and recovery from chronic illness, relieving stress and tension and treating seasonal effective mood disorders.

We have two West Auckland locations, Glen Eden and Lincoln Road Henderson

It's beneficial to combine osteopath, acupuncture or massage treatments with red light therapy to enhance healing and muscle relaxation. At Waitakere Health Hub we offer 10 minutes of red light therapy after another treatment session for $20.

 

You can also combine infrared sauna with red light therapy to maximise the relaxation, detoxification and healing benefits. We offer 10 minutes of Red light with a 30 minute sauna for $75

What to expect 

Sessions are 20 minutes of treatment with a full length red light therapy unit for you to stand or sit in front of. 

 

The light wavelengths need to be exposed to bare skin so we offer a private room with adjacent bathroom and complimentary water and electrolytes are provided.

When using red light therapy you will feel warm, but not sweat like in a sauna, so afterwards you can dress and carry on your day as usual. 

While you may notice some immediate effects such as relaxation, improved mood, better circulation or some reduction in pain, the majority of benefits come from regular use. It is commonly used 3-4 times a week, with greater benefits from daily use and we have a discounted concession available for 3 sessions a week. 

See our prices and more concession information.
