What Is The In Light Wellness System?

The In Light Wellness System is a light-emitting diode (LED) system that provides low-level light therapy (LLT), or alternatively, can be set to provide multiple wavelengths for polychromatic light therapy (PLT). Based on tried and tested infrared red light therapy and blue LED therapy, In Light Wellness Systems offer a gentle therapeutic experience that can be used in a diverse number of treatment settings.

The reason that we have chosen this system for use at My Indigo Body is because of its status as an FDA-approved medical device for use in increasing and improving circulation and mitigating pain perception. Additionally, the versatility of the In Light Wellness System allows for a broad spectrum of applications well beyond the capabilities of LED light beds used by skincare studios and other LLT therapy providers.

What Is LED Therapy?

LED therapy is a series of pulsing wavelengths that was developed out of a program created by NASA scientists to help plants grow in space. The stimulation of cellular growth on a photosynthetic level was quickly adapted to treat wounds and was adopted by the US Special Forces, specifically the Navy Seals, in the early 1990s. Since then, more research has been conducted and certain applications have been proven and approved by the FDA.

The most well-known LED therapies include the treatment of acne, the reduction of inflammation, the increase of circulation, the reduction of pain, and the regeneration of skin cells. However, these same treatments hold tremendous promise for other healing opportunities and anecdotal evidence strongly suggests applications for superficial treatment and minor injury ranging from bruises to bursitis to relief from back pain.

Our clients, as well as people from around the country, have claimed to have found relief and success in using the In Light Wellness System deployed by My Indigo Body for help with:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Arthritis pain
  • Bone spurs
  • Bruises
  • Bursitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Inflammation
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Tendonitis
  • Tight muscles
  • The reduction of scar tissue
  • And more

How Is The In Light Wellness System Different?

One of the reasons that we here at My Indigo Body strongly favor the In Light Wellness System is for its broad spectrum of applications. Not only have our clients reported relief and success with the above-mentioned conditions, but we also find that In Light Wellness Systems allow us to tailor our LED therapy services to our clients’ specific needs in a number of important ways.


Unlike many types of LED light therapy devices, the In Light Wellness System is lightweight, flexible, and comfortably fits people of all sizes. This type of application versatility means that we can use this incredible FDA-approved technology on large surface areas, smaller targeted areas, and on straight or bent limbs.

Polychromatic Light Therapy

Polychromatic light therapy (PLT) is the simultaneous use of two or more wavelengths of colored light. Unlike single light (monochromatic) therapy, PLT works on multiple levels and can assist in the production of ATP — the energy needed for cellular growth and regeneration. PLT can also help to release nitric oxide, can promote circulation through photobiomodulation, or the manipulation of cells through light exposure. In short, this increased circulation is able to help promote whole-body wellness through the versatility of application allowed by the In Light Wellness System.

Infrared Light Therapy

The In Light Wellness System can also be applied using a monochromatic light therapy modality with either red light therapy (RLT) — also known as low light therapy (LLT) — or blue light therapy.

Red light therapy provides a superficial treatment for skin conditions, wound healing, and some other surface-level ailments. It is thought that RLT works by producing biochemical effects that may strengthen mitochondria, a crucial element of both animal and plant cells that provide energy, or ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The idea here is that with more ATP available, a cell can accomplish more, heal faster, and remain younger.

Blue Light Therapy

Unlike red light therapy, blue light therapy provided by the In Light Wellness System is able to penetrate deeper than the surface layer of the skin and can be used to treat conditions below the skin.

Blue light therapy is often used for help with acne, depression, and even minor scar removal.
