The DreamSpa


It’s not just tiny tots with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads who have trouble sleeping during the holidays. Tis the time of year when even adults are so amped up on excitement, errands and seasonal activities that they find it difficult to get some shut eye.

Well for yourself or anyone you know who suffers seasonal or regular insomnia, there’s a solution called the DreamSpa, a heavenly creation that in addition to bringing the sandman to your bed, helps you look younger, reduce stress and keep the wrinkles away.

After months of testing the DreamSpa, which was provided for testing by the company, we found it definitely makes a difference especially in the shut eye department, especially for my husband Richard, an insomnia sufferer, who used it regularly an hour or so before bed time. While he stills has an occasional bout of sleeplessness, he does notice difference after sessions under the canopy. To be honest it isn't always convenient fitting in time to go under the lights, but the results are worth the effort. Also for claustrophics such as I it can prove a little close for comfort and take some getting used to.

How it works

The DreamSpa features a canopy which closes over your head and feels like a mini MRI. There are five proprietary LED light programs designed for the benefits mentioned above. The photons or particles of light produced by the machine are absorbed through the skin and acupuncture points and are then conducted throughout the body by the connective tissue. (To better understand this watch this video testimonial from DreamSpa client Dr. Cari Jacobson, a chiropractic physician who uses it on her patients: Some satisfied customers claim amazing benefits that range from feeling and looking younger to better frames of mind after regular use which you can also read on the company's web site.

For best results it’s recommended to use the machine daily for at least a month. At first concentrate on one symptom ie: sleeplessness, stress, facial renewal, energy renewal etc. Then as you move along you can mix and match the settings.

If you travel frequently you’ll find the DreamSpa ideal to help reduce jet-lag. Just use it after you get home for a few days and you’ll feel like you never left town. It really does rejuvenate the body. And like the name implies you feel dreamy after, almost euphoric. An added benefit to Richard’s testing of the machine is a greatly improved complexion that’s made him look years younger (he also follows a daily skincare routine devised by yours truly and that helps, too).

The DreamSpa costs $1,799 (plus shipping) for which you get a 60-day guarantee and one-year warranty. The carrying case is an extra $169 and no they don’t toss in a Ginsu knife, but for readers of this Examiners column they are offering a $100 discount when you order at enter the code PATTI at checkout. It' also the perfect gift for special people in your life.

And to all a good night's sleep.
