Light therapy products are being offered in a very wide range of the latest developments, styles, and designs. This began since the latest research in light therapy has demonstrated a marked increase in the successful application of light therapy for all forms of depression, showing that light is actually a form of energy consisting of a stream of particles–or a wave of photons. Therapeutically proven to repair tissue and to control pain, light therapy products are fast becoming a chosen treatment for society in a world where traditional medicine is slowly being replaced or combined with successful alternative methods.
The light box therapy, photo rejuvenation, or light therapy probes are just a few of the latest light therapy products that are presently out to offer people variable ways to use light therapy for each person’s individual benefit. Single and full spectrum lighting can be used in many ways–desk lamps, full floor lamps, light shields, diode pads, back lights, LED infrared beds, deep penetrating lights for skin and wounds, dog acupressure with infrared light, animal infrared light, dawn simulators, blue light therapy devices, and sunrise alarm clocks.
The light box therapy is a major part of light therapy products for seasonal affective disorder and many forms of depression. Offering a light therapy treatment to regain a feeling of happiness with a brighter outlook, these particular lines of light therapy products are extremely popular. A simple process, the individual sits in front of a light box with their eyes wide open–a small portable device with fluorescent bulbs and tubes for the light source. Different than the normal household lighting, the light box therapy offers an intensity of light that mimics outdoor light, which causes a biochemical change in the brain to relieve symptoms of depression.
Another new and very popular light therapy product is the Biobrite Digital SunRise Alarm Clock, featured on the Wall Street Journal on March 2, 2007 on page W8. Awakening at dawn with a gentle simulated sunrise is a pleasant way to begin the day, as compared to the jarring of a loud noise. With the sunlight coming up about 30 minutes before the alarm’s wake-up time, the room will become illuminated until it is time to awaken. This light therapy product offers additional programs can be offered in different styles–different dawn and dusk cycles ranging from 15 to 90 minutes, brightness controls, automatic night lights, snooze features, alarms without any noise, alarms with a white noise option that can mask any distracting sounds for easier sleeping, and the option of an FM radio.
