Four of the Most Studied Red Light Wavelengths
This little powerhouse has 4 of the most studied wavelengths regarding health. You can find lots of published research on how red light benefits our health and mitochondrail function on places like pubmed.

Incredibly Low Flicker Rate
Flicker rate has been implicated with having a negative effect on our eyes and health so it’s a concern with screens in general, and in particular within the lighting industry. It is sometimes the hidden culprit behind headaches, naseau or fatigue we feel in our workplace, as well as other negative effects.
Some video games with high flicker rate carry a warning that playing the game may trigger seizures in certain individuals who are sensitive to a rapid flicker rate.
The Firestorm has a low flicker rate. Like, incredibly low. According to the manufacturer Firestorm flicker is measured at 0.7%, which they measure with a UPR spectrometer.
The Firestorm has a 60 degree beam angle. This means that you can achieve a therapeutic effect from futher distance. Put another way, you can cover a greater part of your body from a distance.
With this much power, it’s easy to stay out of the Firestorm’s electro magnetic field (EMF).
How to Use This Device
Everyone is different so we always recommend that you reach out to your doctor and the manufacturer for help with dosage times and how to most safely use any given device. You need firstly to consider its intended use. In other words, what do you want to use the Firestorm for?
Red light therapy is being used for a wide range of health benefits including skin rejuvination, wrinkle reduction, recovering from an injury, as a sleep aid, hair regrowth and weight loss along with many others.
You should also consider what part of the body you are treating. Do you need something you have to hold in your hand or something you want to be further away from? Red light therapy devices come in lots of different shapes and sizes to suit any and all of these scenarios. You may also want to consider the different spectrums of light and the intensity levels for your specific situation. Your doctor or health professional can advise you in the specifics.
That being said, I know people who make calls or return emails while sitting in front of their light. I personally like to sit in front of mine and take that time to listen to some guided meditation to start my day.
If you were going to use this light just as ambient lighting, you could use just the diodes to do that and use the crystal bulbs for when doing actual therapy.
