Lumiram HappyMood™ Pro Light Therapy Lamp

$69.95

Sunlight is an essential ingredient in life, but many of us don't get the amount of bright, health-stimulating light we need - especially during the darker months. As the days get 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.

Much more portable than our flagship light therapy unit, the Aurora™ light therapy system, you won’t have to think twice about getting your daily dose of bright therapeutic light with this practical light pad! You'll be able to bring this one with you everywhere!

⚡️ increase energy and alertness

🌓 reset circadian rhythm and restore sleeping patterns

Features:

5 level adjustable brightness up to 10,000 lux

600 lux, 4200 lux, 6500 lux, 9500 lux, and 10,000 lux

Unit Size: 6.25''W x 7.5''H x .5''D

You know that feeling when lights are turned on after a period of darkness? Not so pleasant. That's why adjustable light intensity is so important -- so you can gradually build up bright light exposure over your session. The HappyMood Mini Pad Pro allows you to do just that: with 5 levels, you can gradually - and comfortably - increase brightness.  

3 Color Temperatures (3000K-6500K)

When it comes to light therapy for SAD, we recommend using natural or cool white color temperatures. However, sometimes it's nice to fill in some ambient light with warm white.

Adjustable timer up to one hour in 10-minute increments

Set it and forget it. Turn your HappyMood on, select your session length (we suggest starting with 10-15 minutes), and get on with your morning routine! 

Plugin and use for up to one hour a day to start feeling the energizing and balancing effects of bright light therapy anywhere you go!

You don't necessarily need to be suffering from SAD to use light therapy - anyone can use light therapy as an addition to their daily morning ritual! It's an effective way to get a boost of energy and alertness to get the day going.

How to use

Light therapy is best used in the morning. While eating breakfast, getting ready, or sitting at your desk, place the light pad anywhere between 3-12 inches away from you, and to your side. The goal is for light to reach your eyes, without looking directly at the pad - it’s quite bright! Let it reach your open eyes peripherally. It's key that your eyes remain open for the duration of your session for light therapy to take proper effect.

If you wear blue light filtering glasses for screen/computer usage, we recommend taking them off during your light session for maximum benefit.

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 the pad a little further away and/or to use it for less time. You’ll learn what your body needs over time!

Contraindications

If you have macular degeneration, vision sensitivity, or are particularly sensitive to lighting in general, you'll find fluorescent-based light therapy, such as our medical-grade Aurora® full spectrum light therapy system, to be more comfortable.

Note: We do not make medical claims. Please consult your physician or therapist to see if light therapy is right for you.

Bright Light Therapy

How it works

Without enough of the bright white light exposure needed to stimulate the hypothalamus, a part of the brain linked to the body's internal clock controlling the sleep-wake schedule (among many other things), the body may increase its production of the sleep hormone melatonin while decreasing the production of serotonin, the feel-good brain chemical that helps regulate mood. Light therapy lamps help mimic the approximate brightness and color temperature of sunlight during the day to help to reset the body's internal clock, improve energy, and uplift mood.

Our eyes detect the presence of light through specialized non-visual forming photoreceptors containing the photopigment melanopsin. Melanopsin is most reactive to shortwave blue light, which, if activated by its presence, sends off a signal to our brain's hypothalamus.

Uses

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! 

FAQ

Does the Aurora™ emit UV light?

While full spectrum fluorescence does emit a negligebale amount of UV, it will all be filtered out by the prismatic lens covering the lightbox.

Is EMF a concern?

No; light therapy is only used for short stints of time each day up to 30 minutes max and shouldn't have any effect. We place more concern on the other light bulbs that are in use all day and night! That said, always choose fluorescent-based models like the Aurora™ over LED if EMF is a top concern.
