Light therapy technology has managed to gain a lot of attention from people in recent times, but the history of light therapy is not brief. It is possible that in the past, when life therapy didn’t have much popularity, you might have heard that there is a therapy that can really help with different skin diseases, and depression too, to some extent. But you ruled out the idea of using it due to your doubt and hesitation, considering its little recognition.
The history of light therapy goes way back. In the past, people understood the importance of sunlight and tried to make use of it as much as possible. Light therapy technology evolved from the idea of mimicking sunlight. A scientist named Niels Fnsen got the Nobel prize for medicine for the use of light therapy. But it didn’t progress much after that period. But in the 1960s, the idea of light therapy resurfaced, and the therapy was being used as the treatment for arthritis, chronic pain, and other similar conditions in Europe.
The field of light therapy had started expanding rapidly during the 1980s, and it found its way into the medical science industry. Numerous researches and studies were conducted on light therapy, and many more benefits of light therapy started to come out to light. Such as the ability to cure skin diseases, improve cell tissues, etc.
In the 1990s, it was found that light therapy can treat injuries much faster than any other medications, and as a result, it can help players a lot during games.
In the 2000s, many different spectrums of light waves got their way into this technology, and researches were conducted to understand the differences between different colored lights and their benefits. Then we got to know that red light therapy can help best with mental health situations such as SAD and depression, and blue light therapy helps most with acne and many other skin diseases. Infrared light helps with pain, skin diseases, etc. Yellow, Green, etc., lights also have their share of benefits.
After a long journey, light therapy technology has come to the present day and has converted to LED technology, and now they’re more beneficial and more effective than ever. And this efficiency has brought this recent popularity for light therapy.
