or ILLUMINATION STATION
or maybe REJUVENATION STATION
Whatever it is called, this is a little cubby
made for some down time. It's a time out to warm up and get some full-spectrum light during these short winter days. You can bring a book or put on a head set and immerse yourself in some rejuvenating brain-wave music.
It's a comfortable bentwood rocking chair and ottoman with a far-infrared and jade heat therapy pad, and your choice of 10,000 LUX bright light in the morning, or a green light for the rest of the day.
See brief write-up on each of the specific features:
Bright Light Therapy
Bright light therapy treatments use a “light box” that uses a white or blue light to provide intense exposure under controlled conditions. Benefits are quite widespread, ranging from the prevention of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and minimizing its symptoms, to improving circadian rhythms in order to promote better sleep. Treatment is as simple a sitting near a light box for as little as 30 minutes, while keeping your eyes open. While it isn’t recommended that you stare directly at the light, you can simply orient yourself toward it.
Green Light Therapy (Dr. Emily Kane N.D.)
My very favorite stress buster is to “bathe” under a green light. A true green light casts an orange shadow, and has been shown in studies to lower cortisol. ... I have used this with patients very reliably for over 10 years, and read to my daughter nightly under a green light. We both sleep well because of it! The green light is absorbed through the skin. Get naked under it! Use for 20-45 minutes daily, but longer is fine. - See more at: dremilykane stress-reduction-tips
Far-infrared Heat Therapy Healing Pad
When the jade is heated, it emits far-infrared heat that penetrates deep into your body as much as 2 to 3 inches below the skin. Far-infrared heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, thus relieving pain and reducing the time it takes to recover from an injury. Improves blood circulation. Reduces tension and stress. Helps remove toxins & improves flexibility. Improves immune system.
Brainwave entrainment uses sound technology to help you achieve a desired state of mind. It produces an effect similar to meditation but is different in one significant way. It’s fast.
If you are looking for a way to improve concentration, reduce stress, and increase creativity, it doesn’t get any easier than using entrainment technology.
While it is high-tech, the science of brainwave entrainment is easy to understand, once you know a few basics. Your brain cells generate electricity to communicate with each other. This electrical activity forms patterns or waves. Scientists have identified four main brainwave states:
Alpha: Occurs when we are aware but physically and mentally relaxed.
Beta: Occurs when we are alert, afraid, or tense.
Theta: Occurs in that drowsy state we experience just before falling asleep.
Delta: Occurs when we are soundly asleep.
The Awakened Mind System 2.0 utilizes embedded inaudible pulses of sound to create an Alpha state that mirrors the Awakened Mind Pattern, sound frequency pattern that draw you easily into states of deep insight, clarity of mind, creative inspiration and peak performance.
