Light Therapy to Combat Seasonal Affective Disorder

UV tanning bed at LuxTan Salon

Did you know that Oregon has the highest reported cases of Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.)? This disorder affects people in multiple ways. It can create a lethargic feeling causing low motivation for daily activities. It can also create a depressed mindset and tiredness. Studies have shown that because of Oregon’s climate many Oregonians experience S.A.D. especially during the Fall and Winter months. Maybe you can relate?

One way to combat this disorder is to visit a tanning salon that offers a wide variety of different light therapies. Here at Lux Tan and Cryo we offer many different light therapy options. The most popular is our U.V. tanning beds. Our tanning beds are regulated by the state, and we follow all safety protocols for safe tanning. We have 3 levels of tanning beds that clients can choose from. Our most popular tanning beds are the High Pressure and Medium Level tanning beds. Clients get their dose of Vitamin D from these beds and their “happy nap” as some clients call it. A Cleveland Clinic medical professional stated that a great treatment for S.A.D. is light therapy and Vitamin D. Both of which you can obtain from our tanning beds. Clients come in feeling a bit down and tired but after just a few minutes of their tanning session they leave feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the rest of their day!

If U.V. Tanning isn’t for you we also offer Red Light Therapy, Lumi Light Facials and the Sculpt Pod Pro. All of these services offer full body and facial light therapy. These output red light and other LED colors to boost your blood circulation, promote A.T.P, boost the lymphatic system, speed up recovery and more! Light Therapy will also help you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and will promote rapid healing.

So, if you’re one of the many Oregonians who suffer from S.A.D swing by one of our 5 locations and try out some light therapy, you may leave with a big smile on your face!
