Light Therapy for Depression?

Question by TPhi: Light therapy for depression?
Has anyone ever used light therapy for depression? Some say it won’t work unless it is seasonal depression, but it looks like the same factors in your brain would be involved either way. I know that there’s specific (expensive) light boxes I can buy, but I’m wondering if going to a tanning bed every 2-3 days might help. I’ve read that tanning beds are not recommended for this, but the medical field would never promote tanning beds anyway because it isn’t good for your skin.
I was just wondering if anyone had any personal experience with either a light box or using a tanning bed for therapy?
