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.

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.

    David, Allie and Brandon are so helpful and informative!😍
  • Beth R.
    I broke my ankle a little over two months ago and I started going back to the Light Lounge as soon as I was able to drive myself. I am able to deal with the pain so much better and am getting decent sleep now ever since I started the pain management sessions at the Light Lounge. The pain is not nearly as intense anymore. Life is good. The facility is incredibly clean and relaxing. I love going in here. I’m not the only one addicted to this place as I see many other fellow Evergreen business owners in and out. This is a happy place.
  • Kristi M.
    Courteous, clean, friendly, inviting atmosphere

    Nice employees who provided good information about the treatments.
  • Emma B.
    I can't recommend the Light Lounge Evergreen enough. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgable and that space clean and modern. They provide hydrogen water and free access to sound meditation tables with every appointment. Scheduling and using the app is very easy and not a problem to change or modify the appointment. They also provide after hours access to members so you can visit on your own schedule.
  • Shon D.
    The light lounge in Evergreen was a great experience. I learned quite a bit about the pods, different settings for different areas someone would want to focus on (pain, inflammation, sleep, etc). Brandon was very informative & helpful.
  • Janice C.
    What a fantastic experience! Thank you for your warm hospitality - I will be back!
  • Pamela L.
    Very soon after I joined Light Lounge, I noticed my aches and pains diminished, which was such a gift to me in my 60s! But I’ve also noticed other things as I continue to show up. I had two teeth that were giving me ongoing trouble after crown replacements, hypersensitivity nerve pain, and some bleeding at the gum, but they’ve stopped being an issue! Also, I had rotator cuff damage (from a fall several years ago) that was a chronic pain scenario for me when I slept, and sometimes during the day. Now, I forget I have the issue most of the time as the pain is mostly non-existent. And, recently, when I had a pedicure, a total stranger, and the nail technician both commented on how smooth and attractive my lower legs were. … I see the difference in my skin, I feel the difference in my body. I have made Light Lounge a regular part of my ongoing wellness regime and I am so VERY GRATEFUL this company is in Evergreen. ᐧ
  • Maggie M.
    Love it!
  • abbe W.
    In a world that preaches pharmaceuticals, my experience is that many times the adverse effects can outweigh the positive. For me, red light therapy has helped my body to heal itself. It has been the purest path to healing that I could have ever imagined. I now go every day as a part of a normal health routine. 15 minutes to keep my cells healthy and happy. I am so grateful that this is available to us here, as not many people have such easy access to this advanced technology. Thank you Light Lounge, I am revitalized daily.You lighten my day!

  • Geoff S.
    I was really skeptical at first because I really didn't understand how it would work but the next morning when I got out of bed I didn't have the usual aches in my joints and that was really surprising to me. So now I know that it does really help!!!!
  • Lisa D.
    Excellent product, and bent over backwards to assist. So happy with my Qi device. Thank you!

  • Philippe M.
    Love the Light Lounge, great crew and services.
  • Jaimi B.
    As a middle aged nurse I know how important supporting your body to assist with aging and healing is ! I’ve been using LightLounge for several years and commute over 45 min one way from home but it is absolutely worth it. I’ve recently sustained an ankle fracture and with hand held laser treatments by staff and the pods my recovery has been miraculous- I haven’t needed any pain medication!! Not only is this technology the future the staff at the Evergreen location along with the owner are professional and caring !! For what it costs for one hour and a half massage with tip you can have a monthly unlimited membership to LightLounge .. worth every Penny !!
