MIRAVAL RESORT & SPA PARTNERS WITH LIGHTING SCEINCE©
TO ENHANCE GUEST SLEEP EXPERIENCE
Definity Digital Good Night™ Light Bulbs Supports Your Body’s Ability to Go to Sleep Easily and Naturally
October 2013 (Tucson, AZ) – Miraval Resort & Spa is pleased to announce that each of its 116 guest rooms will now feature Definity Digital Good Night LED light bulbs designed by industry leading lighting technology firm, Lighting Science®. Miraval is the first U.S. resort and spa to offer Definity Digital LED lights in their guest rooms. The installation of the specialty light bulbs, which will further enhance the overall sleep experience at the award-winning destination retreat, coincides with the introduction of new sleep-focused programming, led by Miraval specialist and registered nurse Sheryl Brooks.
According to Brooks, whose new lecture ‘Are You Sleeping?’ begins on November 1, 2013, sleep is one of the basic building blocks of good health, and sleep deprivation negatively impacts aging, immune system function, metabolism, reaction time and memory. In ‘Are You Sleeping?’, guests learn how their daily routines contribute to sleep patterns and how to create a plan to get a better night’s sleep.In the lecture, Brooks notes that the CDC estimates about 70 million Americans suffer from sleep issues and that a key factor in human sleep cycle regulation is exposure to light or to darkness. Scientists have found that reducing exposure to blue light prior to bed supports the body’s natural circadian rhythm and help you get to sleep more easily and quickly. Using a patented spectrum filter, the Definity Digital Good Night is the only LED light bulb the market that significantly targets blue light emissions, while still providing desirable and energy-efficient bed-side illumination.
"With the installation of advanced lighting technology in each of our guestrooms, Miraval is reinforcing its deep commitment to guests' health and wellness," said Michael G. Tompkins, CEO of Miraval Resort & Spa. “The Good Night LED light is the perfect complement to a stay focused on rejuvenation. At the end of an active day, guests can unwind in their rooms and look forward to restorative sleep supported by the light of Definity Digital."
For guests looking to experience the benefits of the bulbs at home, the bulbs will be available for purchase in Miraval’s gift shop – Raindance Pass.
