Light therapy specialist Lumie is supplying the lights for a chill out room during Warner Music’s Wellness Week, which is running this week at their London offices in Kensington.

 

Light therapy adds value to this important investment in our employees’ wellbeing at what is typically a low point in the year.

Warner Music’s 600 employees are benefiting from a range of well-being events including talks from experts and an exhibition that will showcase Lumie lights among other well-being brands.

The light therapy chill out room features Lumie Brazil, the company’s most powerful lightbox that delivers 10,000 lux (the amount of visible light a person receives at a given point) at up to 35 cms. To put that in context, even a well-lit office only delivers about 500 lux. Bright light therapy has been shown to improve productivity, mood and alertness and is especially good for getting you going in the morning and for picking you up from the post-lunch slump.

Workplace well-being aside, using a light therapy box is an effective treatment for anyone on the winter blues spectrum, from those who experience a drop in their mood and energy to those who are disabled by Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Just 30-60 minutes’ treatment is enough to feel the effects and the therapy is cumulative so it doesn’t have to be taken in one sitting.

“We are delighted to be able to include Lumie lights in Warmer Music’s Wellness Week this year. Light therapy adds value to this important investment in our employees’ wellbeing at what is typically a low point in the year. Not only do we see tangible benefits in terms of reduced absenteeism and improved productivity but it’s also great for team building.” said Amanda Papageorgiou, HR, Warner Music.

“We can use light at any time of day to acutely boost our mood, level of alertness and ability to perform cognitive tasks. In the winter when our environmental light levels are at their lowest, using a light box in the workplace is an effective way to ensure we get enough light. Simply using a bright light box for 15-30 min can have a positive effect, " said Dr Victoria Revell, Circadian Rhythm Expert, Surrey University.

Lumie

Since 1991 Lumie has been researching and designing bright lights to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other conditions. Our first Bodyclock dawn simulator – an alarm that wakes you up with increasing levels of light – was the world’s first wake-up light and brought light therapy into the mainstream. We also designed and developed Lumie Clear, a unique hand held device that uses combined blue and red light therapy to treat acne.

Over the years Lumie has worked closely with the scientific community. All of our products – the broadest range in Europe – are based on published research and designed by us from our base in Cambridge. Lumie is in the EuRhythDia consortium investigating circadian rhythms and type 2 diabetes, and is working with Liverpool John Moores University sports science department. We continue to research new applications for light therapy.

Lumie products are medical devices, certified to the Medical Devices Directive (93/42EEC)and supplied to the NHS on an occasional basis. Distance and brightness levels (lux) are independently verified and Lumie is registered with the government's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.

The benefits of light therapy reach far beyond SAD. Our lights help you to sleep well and get up in the morning, beat the afternoon slump, conquer jetlag and look after your skin. They also optimise sports performance and we are proud to provide lights to some of Great Britain’s elite athletes as well as acting as official suppliers to British Swimming.

Two of our wake-up lights, Luxe and Active, provide white noise as an option. If you are trying to sleep in a noisy environment or during the day, white noise helps to muffle other sounds, like traffic or people talking.

In the UK our products are available through www.lumie.com as well as major retailers including amazon, John Lewis and Boots. We also have an expanding network of distributors across Europe and in North America. For consumers buying through www.lumie.com we provide a 45-day trial on all products and a dedicated customer careline.
