How to incorporate Red Light Therapy into your wellness routine

Prioritising self-care is an essential part of our everyday lives. Along with eating a healthy balanced diet, exercising and practising mental mindfulness. There are other ways to help enhance your wellbeing and recovery at home. In this blog post, our team of experts at Kiva will guide you through how to incorporate Etherea Red Light Therapy into your current regime and how to enhance its benefits.


1. Understanding Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cellular function, promoting healing and regeneration in the body. By enhancing mitochondrial activity and ATP production, it improves circulation, reduces inflammation, boosts collagen production, and accelerates tissue repair. With applications in skin health, wound healing, pain management, and muscle recovery, red light therapy offers a versatile and effective treatment option with minimal side effects.


2. Setting up the space

It’s important to set your device up somewhere you will want to use it! Create a dedicated space in your home where you can comfortably use your Etherea Red Light Therapy device. Choose a quiet, well-lit area where you can relax and unwind. If you are going to be stretching or practising yoga in front of your device, ensure you have enough room to do so.


3. Set a dedicated time of the day

It’s important to plan your day and have a think about when you are going to use your Etherea Red Light Therapy device. If you’re a morning person - perhaps setting aside a few minutes just as you wake up to gently stretch before you continue with your morning routine is going to work best for you. Alternatively, you may want to use the device to help you relax and unwind after a day at work. Before you turn on the tv, think about taking some time to practise your breathing in front of the Etherea Red Light Therapy - this will help you to truly wind-down and is a great set up for a restful night’s sleep ahead.


4. Maximise benefits to suit your needs

To optimise the benefits of Etherea red light therapy, explore various treatment durations and frequencies to discover what suits you best. Whether you opt for short daily sessions or longer, intermittent treatments, consistency is key for maximising its efficacy. It's great to combine with other self-care practices like meditation, yoga, or massage. 


5. Track your results!

We recommend writing down the durations and frequencies during your sessions, this way you can observe any positive or negative changes you are experiencing over time. This will allow you to tailor your approach moving forward, allowing you to maximise benefits and get the most out of your Etherea Red Light Therapy device.
