If I had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) could I benefit from light therapy?Updated 2 months ago

Below, we have listed several research articles related to this matter:

When using our products directly on the face/head, it is important to limit your time to 10 - 15 minutes (this recommendation is due to the radiant heating of the brain, which is made of ~85% water).

If you are concerned about the eyers, SaunaSpace® has no suggestion of protective eyewear as there is no contraindication for the eyes. When it comes to the deleterious effects of IR and such, it involves higher irradiance laser, directly aimed LED, very close administration, etc. See this article, 'Friend or Foe' (see also from Dr. Micheal Hamblin the seminal LLLT paper.

Ultimately, if you are concerned about NIR light exposure (or have a sensitivity), fabric blocks NIR light completely. Use a sleep mask, handkerchief, or piece of cloth to block the light.
