Red light, at specific wavelengths, is readily absorbed by chromophores in the mitochondria of the body’s cells, which activates metabolic energy processes.
Red and near-infrared wavelengths of light promote ATP production, which boosts energy transport within cells, leading to increased cell proliferation. This boost in the body’s natural healing cycle helps reduce inflammation and promotes healing of damaged tissue. What makes red light different from other forms of light is its ability to penetrate deeper into the skin.
While blue and ultraviolet light mainly affects the upper layers of skin, red light can be absorbed by cells deep in the body. Red light therapy is also referred to as photobiomodulation therapy because of the change in the body induced by light, and there are a variety of devices with different capacities of utilizing red light, including red light bed, panels, and targeted deep tissue laser therapy systems.
In order to get the most benefit from the Theralight 360 we recommend for men to wear just shorts and for women sports bra and shorts in the pod.
Mindbody Lounge is Perth’s premier Health, Wellness and Peak Performance facility. Our state of the art lounge will see you performing and feeling at your peak from the moment you enter.
Relax inside the Theralight Light Pod as optimal wavelengths of red and near-infrared LED light are delivered to your whole body in order to increase cellular energy called ‘ATP’ (adenosine triphosphate) – the energy currency of life.
Emerge feeling powerful and vibrant – because the light recharges your cells. It also boosts immunity, promotes tissue repair (skin wounds, muscles, tendons, bones, nerves), reduces inflammation or reduces pain.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy is the application of Red and Near InfraRed light in very specific colors, quantities, and at specific intervals. Photobiomodulation is safe, relaxing, and has no known negative side effects.
635 nm, 810 nm, 850 nm and 980 nm. the Theralight 360 is formulated with four colours based upon the depth of tissue penetration and what it does once it gets there.
The effects are photochemical, just like photosynthesis in plants. Specific nanometers of light are absorbed by our cells. Just like our cells require certain vitamins and nutrients for health they also require certain light nutrients. The absorption of specific nm of light create cellular health by reducing oxidative stress and increasing mitochondrial function = cellular energy (atp). This in turn improves cell metabolism, reduces inflammation, optimises physical and mental performance and also plays a role in optimising lifespan.
To date there are over 550 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) and over 4000 laboratory studies have been published using PBM devices. PBM Therapy is used in thousands of clinics, hospitals and elite sports institutions in over 70 nations. There are approximately 40 new papers per month being published. The primary evidence is in musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, however a wide variety of conditions are being studied as well. To review the published research, go to PubMed.gov and search by the terms Photobiomodulation, LLLT or Low Level Light Therapy.
PBM Therapy is non-toxic is non-invasive and has no side effects
Pregnancy, Cancer and clients that have had organ transplants. More research is necessary to detect any potential adverse effects on patients with these conditions before PBM Therapy can be utilised by these clients.
You should arrive 10 minutes early if you have not already filled out your new client paperwork and watched the orientation video. If you have, please arrive promptly for your start time.
You will be escorted to your private Theralight 360 room and a member of our team will orientate you to the room, how to turn on the light/timer and our recommended eyewear.
You will fully disrobe during your session so as to have maximum skin exposure to the therapeutic light waves.
When your session is complete the lights will turn off and it will be time to get dressed and return to the front desk in order to reserve your next Theralight 360 session.
For best results it is advised that for the first two weeks you receive a session every other day (3 sessions per week). This will renourish your body and allow for change to occur.
Next, it is best to receive 2 sessions per week until your goals are achieved.
Finally, you will continue a maintenance level of 1-2 times per week.
PBM Therapy does not heat tissue, it does however increase circulation so a warming sensation is often experienced. The LED lights are cooled by a patent-pending cooling system to keep you comfortable. Reported subjective feedback:
These outcomes may vary for every person, and are not intended to guarantee, promise, represent and/or assure that anyone will achieve similar results. Occasionally some clients may experience mild fatigue, discomfort, or aches after treatment. These responses should reduce after 24 – 48 hours, if they persist notify your technician at your next appointment and we can start you off with a shorter session to start off with.
