FREE Light Therapy Available

Memorial Health Discovery Center is offering FREE light therapy exclusively now through March 31. It is open to the public by appointment. Light therapy in the Sunlight Feel Better Center was created in response to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This is a very common condition during the winter months that impacts mood due to less sunlight exposure. Symptoms include the loss of energy, motivation, social withdrawal, oversleeping, increased appetite, weight gain and difficulty concentrating. The lights in the Sunlight Feel Better Center are not appropriate for the treatment of mood disorders and people should consult their physician prior to treatment if they are taking medications, have eye problems or skin disorders.

The room includes light therapy units, summertime audiovisuals and other forms of relaxation. There are no UV rays connected with the light units. The Sunlight Feel Better Center is available by appointment, at no charge, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. You may schedule your 30-minute session for yourself or for yourself and one other person. Call 647-1801 to get your appointment. Walk-ins are possible if the room is open. The Health Discovery Center is in suite 6670 of 100 Navarre Place.
