Episode Summary

Our bodies have always used the sun to convert light into energy for movement, healing, and restoration. With the increased prevalence of blue light devices in our everyday lives and more indoor-centric lifestyles, it’s becoming harder and harder to get the benefits from the sun that used to come to us naturally. 

So how can we heal and restore our bodies if we can’t get enough benefits from naturally occurring infrared light? Brian Richards from Sauna Space has one solution. He created a technology that combines the detoxifying benefits of a sauna, with the restorative benefits of near-infrared (NIR) light therapy. When combined, these two therapeutic methods can bring powerful benefits all the way into individual cells.

Join us to learn how near-infrared light therapy can help you on your path to healing and restoration and discover the mental health benefits sweat-light therapy can bring almost immediately.
