Over the past couple of months, I saw people on an Instagram post about red light therapy. I would see pictures of photo shields and how beneficial they are.

Upon going to a local tanning salon, I saw that there was the option to try red light therapy and had to see what it was all about. For me, it was such an uplifting and relaxing experience. I could not wait to do it again and booked my next appointment.

I have read all the benefits of red-light therapy and it made sense with how I was feeling after my session. After talking with the owner of the salon and doing my research, I have continued to my sessions once a week and totally see a difference. For me, the benefits have been both, medical and cosmetic. It is more of an experience that you need to try for yourself and feel the benefits.

Here a few places in the Hudson Valley that you can try red light therapy as well.
