Electric light baths are among the latest inventions announced a newspaper article in 1893. “The necessary parts are a cabinet that encloses the entire body except the head, and fifty electric lamps of sixteen-candle power or 110 volts. They are arranged about the body in groups, with a separate switch for each group, so they can be directed at a particular part of the body. The light makes the patient frisky, and browns the skin like an ocean bath.” Developed by Dr. John H. Kellogg.
