Light Box Therapy
If you feel down, depressed, or increasingly anxious during the dark, winter months, you might be suffering from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Light box therapy can lift your spirits, reduce stress, and liberate your mind from seasonal despair!
At Georgia Med Spa, we provide light box therapy to patients suffering from SAD and other conditions for which simulated sunlight is an effective treatment. Sitting in front of our light box has a positive effect on brain chemistry, improving your mood and increasing energy levels.
Light is as essential to your life as air, food, and water. It’s intensity matters, too, which is why many of us who spend many hours indoors can suffer from a dearth of natural light during the winter.
If you’re suffering from SAD or just need to ease the Winter Blues, light box therapy is the answer!
Our light box emits 10,000 Lux, which is the level of illumination you experience on a clear, spring morning. Thanks to full spectrum bulbs, light box therapy mimics what you experience outdoors – a far cry from standard indoor incandescent or fluorescent lights!
