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.

    I'm so happy I found this place. The RLT is amazing for post work out recovery and my skin is looking a lot healthier as well.
  • Kim S.
    I have been suffering with shoulder and neck pain for several weeks. I stopped in at the Light Lounge and was incredibly impressed by the expertise and knowledge that Dan shared with me as we toured the studio. Dan and Laura have made the Light Lounge a clean, relaxing and soothing environment to heal in, and it is obvious that they have a strong community focus. I'm happy to report that after just a couple of sessions my pain has lessened immensely!
  • Eric P.
    You can instantly tell that Dan and Laura care deeply about spreading wellness and joy to the world. Their facility is beautifully and thoughtfully maintained. Red light therapy is a wonderful drug free and non invasive way to treat pain, boost energy and improve mood. Their equipment is state of the art. It would be impossible to replicate in the home. The convenience of popping in for a full body 15 minute treatment makes it simple to incorporate into your daily routine. This is the closest thing to a fountain of youth I have found in my middle age. My wife uses it to alleviate migraines and get better sleep at night. You owe it to your body to take advantage!! Thank you Dan and Laura for bringing this to our community. I know the journey was not easy.
  • Fran M.
    I love this place and the entire team! Always so helpful and friendly. Red Light/cold laser therapy is so beneficial for so many health related things. I don’t want to be without it!
  • Chris L.
    I tried this place out on a whim while traveling and am I glad I did! I had read about red light therapy so when I had time to kill in Littleton and spotted Light Lounge on my maps app, I went for it. First off, this place is super clean and beautifully designed and furnished. It feels like a high end Scandinavian spa as soon as you walk in. I was greeted with a smile by Laura, one of the owners, and shown some materials explaining the benefits of RLT. I've never been to a tanning bed, but it feels like a similar setup - but with different kind of light. There are private rooms with doors that lock, so it feels totally comfortable and safe to strip down and let the machine do its thing. I chose to cover my eyes with some little protectors they gave me, but I peeked and it didn't actually bother me or hurt my eyes at all. After about twenty minutes, I was all done. This all was toward the end of a long business trip for me, so had been feeling a little run down. After my session, I didn't really feel different at first, but that night I slept SO well in my hotel, which I never do. I'm sure one session won't have a big effect, but can definitely see how this would have some amazing long term benefits. It was just really relaxing and my body definitely responded. I just wish there was one closer to me!

    I have been dealing with sciatica for over a year and I started going here a few weeks ago. Results were noticeable right away. My use of pain medications has been drastically reduced and my state of well being has been lifted dramatically. I highly recommend Light Lounge to any of you that have tried other remedies to no avail. Great place.
  • Melissa P.
    I’m a new believer in red light therapy! Today was my first session and I can already feel a difference. I am a long time sufferer of chronic pain and inflammation. After a 15 minute session in the pod, Dan worked on my neck with their hand held lasers and for me to say my neck has significantly less pain when turning is huge! Dan and Laura are wonderful people and super knowledgeable. I highly recommend this place!

    The Light Lounge in Littleton, Colorado is amazing! I have a shoulder injury. Between the beds and the local treatment, I was able to do my week-long sailing school pain free.
  • sandi H.
    my sister told me about red light therapy and the owner of rocky mountain laser college told me about Light Lounge. In anticipation of surgery, I went 4 times prior. I have much less pain and bruising as expected! Off the pain meds 5 days early. Getting my energy back quicker. Had to wait a week to go post surgery because I could not get in and out of the machine. Now planning on going to continue the help in healing and feeling good. Thanks to Dan and his crew this place is awesome

    My experience at Light Lounge Littleton has been a wonderful addition to my routine. The space is so welcoming and peaceful and the treatments are supporting a shift in my brain that is difficult to describe! I am letting go of stress more easily and bothersome nervous habits have simply gone away. The fading of scars and improved skin tone is an extra bonus!
  • N G.
    While I was in town, I talked to Dan for quite a while about the benefits of red light therapy, and I am so glad that I did. He was patient with all of my questions, and he was knowledgable with all of his answers. This place is beyond pleasant, the staff are all caring, and they are willing to go the extra mile to help. The therapy, and my experience here, were both top notch!
