HOW LED LIGHT THERAPY TREATS SEASONAL AFFECTIVE  DISORDER

As we move into colder temperatures, SAD, seasonal affective disorder, can alter our emotional wellbeing. We’ve studied the influence of this all too common stressor and have found excellent remedies. But our favourite? LED light therapy. 

What kind of LED light is best to help SAD? 

We preach the skin benefits of Near-Infrared 830nm light, as the cell regenerator works in tandem with Red 633nm light to help decrease pain and reduce inflammation, strengthen the complexion, and support the aging process. But for SAD purposes, it promotes relaxation and reduces stress.

So what does that mean? LED boosts serotonin levels (our happy hormone), helps to reset our circadian rhythm, increases the sleep hormone, melatonin, and ignites pockets of nitric oxide, which is just as valuable as vitamin D and present in every single cell in the body. Nitric oxide, a mood and immunity booster, is one of the most important molecules for blood vessel health. It’s a vasodilator, meaning it relaxes the inner muscles of your blood vessel, causing them to widen. 

Other well-being benefits of LED treatments 

Our Boost Advanced LED devices are also a great antidote for discomfort and pain management. LED light therapy stimulates a natural response in human tissue that can accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level. Near-infrared light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.

To reap LED’s stress-relieving benefits, use our Boost Advanced LED Mask and Décollettage Bib at least three to five times per week. Increase when you need more support, and decrease when you are sleeping well. 

What our customer says about LED treatment for SAD and anxiety 

To that end, our clients wholeheartedly believe the hype. According to @lechic.edit, she says, “While I can feel that my skin is softer, plumper, and more toned whilst using it, the biggest difference, I feel, is therapeutic. I feel a generally positive affect—relaxed, but uplifted and it calms any anxieties I may have accumulated during the day. I use it at night before bed and the quality of my sleep is significantly better. I wake up feeling well-rested.”
