About Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder

Depression and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) can have serious impacts on quality of life. Depression, also called major depressive disorder, can cause a loss of interest in hobbies and activities, feelings of sadness, trouble sleeping, loss of energy, and more.

Those with SAD often experience the same symptoms as those with depression. However, SAD is a condition that only occurs in the fall and winter months because it is triggered by the decrease in daily sunlight. Because sunlight governs the brain’s circadian clock and the circadian clock impacts various other systems in the body and brain, this seasonal decrease in sunlight can do serious harm to the mental health of many individuals. Those with SAD may experience symptoms that include:

  • Low energy
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Feelings of sadness or hopelessness

Fortunately, there are promising treatment options available for both SAD and major depressive disorder.

Mental Health Benefits of Phototherapy

How Does Red Light Therapy Impact Mental Health?

Red light therapy, also known as phototherapy or photobiomodulation, involves applying specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to the body. These wavelengths painlessly penetrate the skin and stimulate cellular processes. By activating cells to produce more ATP, or cellular energy, red light therapy can have exciting impacts on many of the body’s functions.

Red light therapy works in several ways to alleviate symptoms of depression and SAD:

  • Regulate circadian rhythm: The brain’s circadian rhythm is responsible for sleep patterns, but also for hormone regulation, proper digestion, and many other functions. Phototherapy has been shown to help regulate the body’s internal clock, allowing for better sleep and more efficient hormone regulation.1
  • Reduce inflammation: Red light therapy can help reduce inflammation throughout the body, alleviating chronic pain and allowing for improved brain function. Chronic pain and depression often go hand in hand, so reducing inflammation can play an important role in breaking cycles of depression.
  • Boosting energy: By increasing cellular energy, red light therapy can improve cellular function and make individuals feel more energetic. Having more energy makes it easier to participate in activities that have been shown to alleviate the symptoms of depression, such as physical exercise. Red light therapy can also help boost overall mood.
  • Balancing hormones: Hormones such as serotonin and melatonin play an important role in mental health. Red light therapy can help normalize the production of these hormones in the brain, promoting mood elevation and wakefulness in the daytime.

Red light therapy alone is unlikely to cure depression or SAD. However, properly administered phototherapy can play a role in breaking difficult cycles of poor sleep and low energy. Working with a medical team to determine the best steps for alleviating the symptoms of depression and SAD is critical.

Light Therapy

Why Light Therapy

Light Therapy (or Photobiomodulation) is a non-invasive treatment that decreases oxidation, lowers inflammation, and helps your body stay healthy at the cellular level.

Clinically Proven

Over 500 clinical trials and over 4,000 laboratory studies have proven Light Therapy to be effective with no side effects. It can improve performance and heal tissues to treat the source of pain.

FDA Approved

Light Lounge™ uses only FDA approved medical grade light beds to ensure that you get the best treatment available on the market.


"The Light Lounge has been my savior. I had a bad ski accident about two years ago and I wasn't healing well. By the 5th session the pain was gone."

Lisa Marie

"I was referred to Light Lounge by my physical therapist, I would absolutely recommend this to family and friends."


"I have been coming to Light Lounge almost every day for two years. The joint pain I used to get in my shoulders is gone."


"I have had issues with my blood pressure for a little over two years. It comes down for about 3 days after I have been to Light Lounge."


"In the last year and a half I have had two knee replacement surgeries on the same knee. I had been frustrated with my pain and recovery, that's when I found Light Lounge. I no longer have to strongly rely on my opioid medication."


When light that is in the red, near infrared, and infrared spectra is applied to the body, inflammation and pain are decreased, and healing is accelerated. Light therapy does this by reducing excessive oxidative stress at the cellular level with no documented nor reported negative side effects.

From folks who are suffering from chronic pain (light therapy can alleviate pain without drugs) to people who want to get more out of their training (light therapy can help increase performance and decrease recovery time).

Clinical trials and 4000 laboratory studies demonstrate that light therapy (also called photobiomodulation) has no negative side effects. It has been proven to heal soft tissue injuries, help with TBI, relieve pain without using harmful drugs and painkillers. For more evidence based information please see our BLOG.

    The Light Lounge Arvada is worth every penny for the healing power of red light. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. 5 star establishment.
  • Pat H.
    I came to the light lounge with two issues. 1. My legs were swollen with serious edema and painful limited flexibility 2. Due to an accident my hand was badly scraped up. After I started light treatment my hand wounds started healing much faster than other cuts and scrapes have healed in the past. The flexibility in my legs is measurable because I could only lift my leg to a stop limit. Over the last 2 weeks, my flexibility has.markably improved . Was this because of the Machine or natural healing by .my bodies natural ability to heal itself? I believe the light treatment triggered the natural healing abilities in my body to do their job. The staff has been very friendly and helpful with the appointment app, and after hours access.
