Some of us simply succumb to the seasonal affective disorder that’s triggered by weeks without sunlight, cultivating unhealthy habits like settling into a warm bar stool to self-medicate for the winter. There’s a healthier alternative: Staycations Light Therapy, on South Third Street West, rents out single, double, and group therapy rooms equipped with happy lights that beam sun-mimicking rays. Massive televisions display waves that wash over the screen as soothing music fills your ears and heated white sand floors envelop pasty feet. An oxygen bar helps further boost your mood. The spa also offers spray tanning, so you can tell your friends that you’ve actually been somewhere.
