If you are mildly affected by the winter blues or seasonal depression, a light therapy lamp could be beneficial to you. Light therapy or phototherapy, is a non-medicinal treatment known for its effectiveness in countering the effects of a lack of daylight hours, including seasonal depression.
To benefit from light therapy, you must be exposed daily to artificial light that replicates the effects of sunrays. Exposure to the light of a lamp specially designed for this purpose is generally recommended for 30 minutes according to the light intensity of that specific lamp. Results are generally felt within the first week, but four weeks of treatment are usually needed to obtain an optimal response.
It is recommended to begin the treatment in the fall when daylight hours decrease and to continue until spring. We encourage you to speak to a healthcare professional about the advantages of acquiring a light therapy lamp.
