S.A.D is a depression that starts in the autumn and lasts all winter, but you can fight it!
Seasonal Affected Disorder (S.A.D) is thought to be due to an imbalance of chemicals in the brain, caused by short days and lack of sunlight. Aquasun Therapy, which was originally designed by the medical profession, is a unique system that combines the sun and spa water experience in one, thus helping sufferers.
The concept behind Aquasun Therapy is to emulate the less harmful UV sun rays by strong control and filtering, allowing the benefits of UV rays to overcome the negative impact on the skin, combined with bathing in warm Dead Sea mineral water and hot air jets massaging the body to promote a sense of well-being. Aquasun Therapy treatment mimics a Mediterranean beach scene during those cold winter months, lightly tanning the body and invigorating the mind.
It Really Works…
Clients who use Aquasun Therapy as a way of reducing S.A.D are always extremely impressed with the results. Just read the positive comments of two journalists who have experienced Aquasun…
‘‘As someone who suffers from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), a type of winter depression, I dread turning the clocks at the end of October, I feel like hibernating but that simply is not an option!
Aquasun sounded like a pleasant way to help the problem… The Aquasun is a floatation unit with a safe sun light above. It just looks like a larger version of your bath at home. There’s a large ‘canopy’ above it, which is simply a huge light emanating carefully filtered UV sun rays- allowing the benefits without any dangerous side effects.
All you have to do is lie back in the mineral-rich Dead Sea water and close your eyes.
I found the light very bright at first, but I quickly adjusted and was able to relax as the warm water with Dead Sea Salt bubbled away, gently massaging my body. The treatment takes 20 minutes but the transformation in my mood was brilliant- it left me feeling completely rejuvenated, much calmer and more positive. You need regular top-ups to maintain the effects, but I’ll definitely be going back sporadically, when I’m feeling low.’’

"The Aquasun treatment experience, designed by medical professionals, is a unique sun and spa experience which combines relaxation with rejuvenation by boosting the body with important minerals as well as Vitamin D, helping to promote healthy bone density.
Allied with the beneficial effects of mineral rich sea water in a warm water tub, the Aquasun system is a new concept for the beauty/spa market- a therapeutic whirlpool solarium. While bathing the skin absorbs essential Dead Sea Minerals from the water. Circulation in the skin improves and its resistance to harmful influences is strengthened. The sun canopy is mobile and fitted with 12 strong, low-pressure UV lamps. When you start your bath, the canopy lowers itself automatically to approximately 70cm above your body, gently warming and tanning your body simultaneously.
The lamps have more or less the same degree of efficiency as the sun, except that there is no
risk of an 'overdose.'"
