Relaxation & Stress Management at Elevate Mind Body Beauty

Do you struggle with sleep? Or struggle to relax and wind down after a long day? If so, you are not alone, but it does not mean that you have to suffer.

Our wellness spa treatments and light therapy are an excellent non-drug alternative to help you relax and wind down in the evenings. Light therapy can help relieve sleep issues associated with insomnia, circadian rhythm sleep disorders, jet lag, seasonal affective disorder, and depression.

Find out how our wellness spa treatments aid in relaxation and stress management.

Sunlight Therapy

Regular exposure to sunlight is required for our bodies to produce the hormones melatonin and serotonin. Unfortunately, we rarely get enough of it. This is why most people suffer from the symptoms of the most common mental illness called Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Serotonin is your natural mood stabilizer. Increasing your serotonin levels allows for better control of your emotions so you can feel more focused, happier, and calmer. 

Light therapy is a natural treatment for various health issues. It is routinely used for anxiety and winter blues. Light therapy utilizes the body's natural response to light. The process stimulates the brain's production of neurochemicals associated with good moods. This explains why some people who do not get enough bright light suffer from mental health issues, a lack of motivation, and a lack of energy.

Additionally, light therapy helps to combat vitamin D deficiency, another condition that has been linked to anxiety. Light therapy resets your circadian rhythm, allowing you to improve your sleep patterns and awaken refreshed. For many people, thirty minutes of light therapy can be more effective than medication for improving sleep!

Not only does better sleep improve your overall physical health, but being well-rested also decreases anxiety and enhances the brain’s ability to cope with fear or anger. Per Dr. McMahon, “If people are exposed to light in the morning that mimics the wavelengths of daylight, they become better at coping with anxiety-provoking experiences. The light simply improves the communication between the regions of the brain that are central to our handling of emotions, such as stress and anxiety.”

Light therapy creates positive changes in the brain, especially in the amygdala, where our fear and anger responses are controlled.

Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy can help you relax and wind down in the evenings, ultimately promoting deeper and more restful sleep. Red light has a long-wavelength, which has a calming effect on the body. Therefore, it has beneficial effects on sleep and other physical properties that help promote relaxation and rest in the evenings.

Clinical research is also showing that red light therapy can improve sleep quality and duration, and help people produce more of their own melatonin – also known as the sleep hormone.

Red light therapy has an extensive list of amazing benefits, such as:

Helps you naturally de-stress and wind down in the evenings

Assists with circadian rhythm sleep disorder and insomnia

Promotes more of the sleep hormone, melatonin

Helps with anxiety and seasonal depression

Reduces pain and inflammation

Promotes relaxation and enhances circulation

Stress doesn’t just refer to that high-strung feeling you get when life is overwhelming. It also impacts your body through mechanisms, like stimulating stress hormones to flow. One problem is called oxidative stress, which happens when two types of molecules, free radicals, and antioxidants, are out of balance. Oxidative stress damages fatty tissue, protein, and even DNA within the body. This problem contributes to aging and diseases, including cancer. This imbalance isn’t as much caused by mindset, as it is by external and behavioral factors, like exposure to certain chemicals and pollutants, smoking cigarettes, and an unhealthy diet.

Making an effort toward a healthier lifestyle and minimizing exposure to chemicals can help with the problem of oxidative stress. In addition, red and near-infrared light therapy is a tool you can use to counteract oxidative stress, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the body. The wavelengths of red light are absorbed into cells to stimulate metabolic energy processes and support against stress. Red light therapy offers a variety of benefits, as it is: painless, non-invasive, has no side effects, can be combined with other therapies, and more. We provide full-body red light therapy to encourage the balancing of free radicals and healing within the body.

Red light therapy mimics what you’d observe watching the sunset. Every wonder why you feel so incredible watching a soothing sunset? You know how the sky turns red, orange and yellow? This is because the sun is actually emitting the highest amount of red and near-infrared light out of any time a day. Red light therapy mimics what you’d observe while watching a sunset. At sunset, the sun naturally emits the highest amount of deep red and near-infrared light, which tells your body it is time to wind down and relax.

Infrared Sauna Blanket

Stress and inflammation share an intricate link. Stress can trigger the body's inflammatory response, protecting it from perceived harm. Consequently, chronic stress can lead to chronic inflammation.

Infrared sauna blankets play a pivotal role in stress reduction. The heat produced by these blankets promotes a deep sense of relaxation and reduces muscle tension. This relaxation can lead to decreased cortisol levels, the body's primary stress hormone, resulting in lower inflammation.

Furthermore, the use of infrared sauna blankets can stimulate the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain and stress fighters. This can provide a calming effect, further reducing stress and, consequently, inflammation.

I spend every morning for about 20-30 minutes in the sauna blanket while meditating and working on breath work. By the end of the half hour, I am ready to tackle the day! Adding these tools into your daily life will level up your health. What are you waiting for?!
