As hearty New Englanders, we love our change in seasons. But when days are shorter and evenings are longer, the lack of exposure to sunlight can affect serotonin levels and have other negative health effects because of the lack of vitamin D. Lack of sun can even affect our ability to sleep. Since melatonin is light sensitive, extended periods of time without sunlight affect our sleep cycles. Lack of sleep, and over sleep, affect our abilities to concentrate and process information.

Sunlight exposure means more healthy Vitamin D for the human body, but this requires a sunny day! Vitamin D isn’t absorbed from sunshine, but the simple act of sunlight hitting our skin prompts a complicated process involving the liver and kidneys that ends with the body creating its own vitamin D.

Luckily infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” therapies for overall healthier living.

If you want to experience vital “filtered sunshine” to boost Vitamin D and serotonin, Release Well-Being Center has a state of-the-art 10,000 Lux Sun Sauna which includes natural full-spectrum light and near, mid and far-infrared waves, without harmful UV rays. Individually both full-spectrum light and full infrared heat are of huge benefit to health and wellness. When used in combination, the benefits of each are multiplied exponentially. Increase natural vitamin D and serotonin production, while cleansing pores and promoting muscle relaxation.

So if you want to get yourself back into balance this winter, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals. Contact our Concierge Team at 508-986-2330 and visit Bliss today.
