Beat the Winter Blues (SAD) with JK PPL® Therapy!
Lack of energy…….?
In Winter time thousands of us notice a change in either our overall mood, energy levels, sleep length, appetite, weight and social activities. Alot of the time this is from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), a condition which typically affects people during the winter months where people tend to go to work in the dark and go home in the dark and don’t get enough natural daylight.
This lack of natural daylight causes sufferers of Seasonal Affective Disorder to spend nearly half of the year struggling with the following symptoms. If you have one or more of these symptoms, then you may be suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder:
- Difficulty waking
- Decreased energy/lethargy
- Carbohydrate craving
- Increased appetite
- Increased sleep
- Weight gain
- Difficulty concentrating
- Decreased libido
- Withdrawal from family and friends
At times, patients may not feel depressed, but rather lack energy to perform everyday activities.
The Solution is Simple!
JK PPL ® Therapy is a deeply relaxing treatment which boosts your mood and reduces the symptoms of SAD. Light therapy is a medical treatment that consists of light of a specific intensity and visible spectrum very close to that of sunlight. The beneficial effect of light is linked to its physiological action particularly its influence on secretion of melatonin, the “sleep hormone” and serotonin, a neurotransmitter which regulates mood balance. Light therapy is preferred over antidepressants in the treatment of SAD because it is a relatively safe and easy therapy. Studies have proven a 50-80% remission of symptoms for those who have used light therapy treatment.
Blue light is emerging as particularly beneficial for mood regulation. One study from researchers of the Light Research Program at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia found that blue light strengthens and stimulates connections between areas of your brain that process emotion and language.
This means that blue light may, in turn, help people to better handle emotional challenges and regulate mood over time. Blue light may be even more effective than the bright white light often used to treat SAD and other forms of depression. And a 2006 study found that blue light also worked better than red light in treating SAD symptoms.
It uses a safe light spectrum of light emitted from hundreds of light emitting diodes (LED), the light is focused towards the eyes and face the same way as natural light and is completely safe. The light will relax you and help lift your mood but that’s not all that it does! At the same time the light also improves the health of your skin as it improves the appearance of fine lines, increases circulation and evens skin tone so you get two treatments in one!
