Lumiram Aurora™ Bright Light Therapy System
The closest simulation to natural sunlight!
The flagship full spectrum bright light therapy system by Lumiram.
Note: The Aurora is assembled by hand and in high demand. Please allow up to a week for processing.
Sunlight is an essential ingredient in life, but many of us don't get the amount of bright, health-stimulating light we need - especially around this time of the year. As the days get shorter and shorter leading up to winter, we get less time under the bright sun which is necessary to keep our circadian cycles and health in balance.
Whether you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or generally feel a little off during the winter, light therapy restores some zing to winter life!
While the majority of light therapy units these days use LED technology, the Aurora™ light therapy box is one of the few units available on the market using full spectrum fluorescent technology. This is especially important for those dealing with SAD and photo-sensitivities.
Aurora provides the necessary 10,000 Lux of bright, white light at a distance of 2 feet, in order to:
🌓 reset circadian rhythm and restore sleeping patterns
⚡️ increase energy and alertness
😊 improve mood
The awakening effects of Aurora are immediately noticeable; you'll start to feel more alert, energized, and motivated within minutes of turning it on. If you're looking for an extra kick to get the morning going and motivation to cross items off your list, you'll love Aurora's energizing effects - even if SAD isn't a concern for you!
Professional, high-grade quality that will last you a lifetime of winters.
While most light therapy products are throw-away, the Aurora lightbox will be in your wellness toolkit for the rest of your life. All you'll need to do is change out the bulbs as needed.
The Aurora™ consists of 2 main components:
- The "Box": an artisan-quality metal case enclosure (with carrying handle) that is hand-made here in Brooklyn, NY, with a prismatic lens covering to deflect glare.
-The Light: 2 Lumichrome® full spectrum fluorescent tubes. Made in Germany, Lumichrome® is the closest simulation of noontime sun (98 CRI, 5000K) available in a light bulb.
Coupled with a cozy nook and your morning cup of hot coffee (or tea if you prefer), winter mornings never felt so good!
How to Use:
Light therapy works best if used in the morning. While eating breakfast, getting ready, or sitting at your desk, place your Aurora about 24 inches away from you, and to your side. The goal is for light to reach your eyes, without looking directly at the light source. It’s quite bright - let light reach your open eyes peripherally. Also, if you wear blue light filtering glasses, we recommend taking them off during your light session for maximum benefit. It's key that your eyes remain open for the duration of your session for light therapy to take proper effect.
Try for 10 minutes at first to see how you respond; you should begin to feel a sense of alertness. If you start feeling jittery, that’s an indication to place your unit a little further away and/or use it for less time. You’ll soon learn how your body best responds, and your needs may also change over time!

How it works
Our eyes detect the presence of light through specialized non-visual photopigments called melanopsin (a light-sensitive retinal protein). Melanopsin is most reactive to shortwave blue light, which, if activated by the presence of light, sends off a signal to our brain's hypothalamus. Within the hypothalamus, lies a cluster of cells (called the suprachiasmatic nuclei, or SCN) whose job it is to coordinate our daily cycles of behavior and physiology with our external environment.
Who it's for
The most common use of light therapy is to treat SAD, a type of seasonal depression during the fall and winter caused by a lack of sunshine. But you don't need to suffer from a clinical diagnosis of SAD to enjoy the stimulating benefits of bright light therapy: think of bright white light as a vitamin to be taken each day for optimal health and wellness!
Well crafted unit meets expectations. Improvements would include a dimmer and rubber feet on two sides so the unit can be stood the tall way. Satisfied customer and I would recommend to others.
