Rudding Park targets SAD with new Sunlight Therapy Room
POSTED 01 Feb 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
We were inspired by the idea of helping our guests overcome the challenges of long dark winter days.
– Matthew Mackaness, spa director at Rudding Park
Rudding Park in Harrowgate, UK has opened a Sunlight Therapy Room in its Roof Top Spa to help reduce the effects of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

According to research nearly a third of Brits suffer from SAD, due to lack of sunlight, with sufferers experiencing low mood, irritability, weight gain and difficulty waking up.

Designed to counterbalance SAD by giving guests a healthy dose of winter sunshine, the Sunlight Therapy Room offers safe sun exposure from 'sunlight simulators' that mimic natural sun rays whilst filtering out harmful UV rays. Guests simply relax on heated, sculpted loungers beneath these simulators for 20 minutes to reap a host of benefits, including reduced symptoms of SAD, sounder sleep, increase in energy, reduction in aches and pains and a boost in vitamin D production.

Following the Sunlight Therapy Session guests are encouraged to try the Roof Top Spas thermal and hydrotherapy experiences including the outdoor hydrotherapy infinity pool and spa bath.

Matthew Mackaness, spa director, "At Rudding Park we are always looking to innovate and offer guests something new. We were inspired by the idea of helping our guests overcome the challenges of long dark winter days. The Sunlight Therapy Room is the perfect solution which we hope guests will feel the benefit."
