Reopening Monday 6th July. Online booking available in our 'Book Online' tab.
The Lucia No.03 provides a deep relaxation, while simultaneously providing a unique transcendental experience. Unlike traditional meditation, the Lucia No.03 is instantly accessible so that even first-time users can experience a state of deep relaxation (coupled with focus, where one is in touch with their own intuition and personal creativity).
It was developed by Dr Dirk Proeckl, a neurologist and psychologist, and Dr Engelbert Winkler, a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, in Austria.
The Lucia no.03 uses stroboscopic colourless LED lights in adjustable frequencies and intensities alongside a constant light source which can also be varied. White light passes through closed eyelids, past the retina to the pineal gland, and creates a visual experience of one’s own design. The inner consciousness of the user produces a unique visual experience and is created using a series of programmes ranging from a few minutes to an hour.
With a series of regular sessions on the Lucia No.03 light machine - between 5-8 sessions are recommended – you can train your brain to reach this optimal state at will. This magical space between wakefulness and sleep is powerful for deep relaxation, cosmic journeying, lucid dreams and creative visionary time. The reported benefits include enhanced feelings of wonder, joy, clarity, inner peace, exultation and compassion, also for pineal gland activation, deepening presence, improved sleep & more!
What to expect from a session;
A session typically lasts 1 hour during which time you will be fully supervised. The science of the lamp and its effects will be explained, and after giving informed consent your session can begin. The session starts with a 10-minute taster, to ensure you are comfortable with the experience. (Please be aware that at any time the session can be stopped by opening your eyes). All of the sessions are enhanced by listening to music at the same time so a complementary soundtrack will be selected to score your inner journey. After the taster you may have questions about your experience so do not be afraid to ask. This will be followed by a longer session on a programme of suitable intensity selected based on your feedback. The session can be experienced seated or lying down.
After a light session, users describe feeling calm and energised but we advise that you:
•Take time to allow for integration of what you've experienced.
•Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol.
•Consider meditating or completing a mindful exercise prior to bedtime.
•Get plenty of rest to optimise the healthful impacts of your experience.
