Treatment Time 60 Minutes

The Rio Sad Lamp is a compact unit, standing at only 19cm tall, it can be easily placed in a bedroom or a living room, on a desk beside a PC at home or even on a desk at work. It produces a full spectrum of natural light with low energy usage. Typically, 15-60 minutes of exposure a day is sufficient for most people, however the lamp can be used as often as required. The lamp can be used at any time during the day (to link to the natural biological clock, it is best to use between 6am and 8pm), although research has shown that morning use is the most beneficial time. Users will recognise when sufficient light treatment is achieved - most often by a feeling of heightened alertness, energy and mood. 

The Benefits of Sunlight Indoors

The Rio SAD LIGHT has been developed to help Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), a condition which can affect all ages, men and women alike. Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) is a condition that can affect men or women of any age. Symptoms vary, and are often referred to as the “winter blues”, the lack of natural light at any time of the year may cause S.A.D.

 

How you use SAD LIGHT

Simply position the Rio SAD LIGHT about 50cm away from you directing the light towards your face, but slightly offset. Adjust the timer and brightness to suit you then begin. (It is ok to look into the light every now and then, but do not look into the light continuously).

Typically 15-60 minutes of exposure a day is sufficient for most people, however, you may use your light as often as you want.

TOP TIP: Try to co-ordinate usage with your natural biological clock, namely between 6am and 8pm. You can obviously use the Rio SAD LIGHT at other times of the day but research has shown that morning use is most beneficial.

Use the Rio® SAD LIGHTTM on at least five successive days at roughly the same time, you can then repeat the programme as often as you feel you need to.

Light levels determine the sleep / wake cycles of both animals and humans. The desire to sleep is brought on by the secretion of Melatonin, and the bright natural light or the light from a SAD lamp significantly reduces Melatonin, greatly improving our energy levels. Typical symptoms of SAD are depression, lethargy, anxiety, craving, social problems, sleep problems and loss of libido. These symptoms can be commonly resolved through the use of The Lucia Mega Light Therapy SAD light box.
