LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A growing Vegas company may leave you seeing red. But that's a good thing. In fact, their product may just leave you feeling a whole lot better.

13 Action News anchor Todd Quinones shows us a local business building success with red-light therapy.

At Body Balance System, all the red-light therapy beds are built from scratch.  

"Red-light therapy is good for fat loss, pain relief, muscle recovery after a workout, a number of skin conditions," said Michael Londo, founder and CEO of Body Balance System.

Body Balance System makes these zero-gravity beds filled with small red lights, or diodes. There are about 9,600 per bed, Londo says.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, "Results of some studies do show some promise, but the full effectiveness of red-light therapy has yet to be determined..." according to the Cleveland Clinic. The therapy appears to be safe, clinicians said, but they recommended talking to your doctor to learn more.

Londo contends the demand for the beds indicate their effectiveness. He says they sell more than 100 beds per year, for $50,000 each, to clients across the country.

"Chiropractors, pain relief centers, pain management spas," Londo said.  

Today, this Nevada Built company employs 11 people at its location near Durango Drive and Russell Road.

The company says it's seen a recent growth in sales and they're actually looking to hire to keep up with demand. They're looking to fill positions in sales and production.
