  • Which HAPPŸLAMP lamp should I choose?
    To be effective, a light therapy lamp must produce a minimum of 10,000 lux. HAPPŸLAMPS are a minimum of 10,000 lux so now the choice of style is up to you!
  • Are HAPPŸLAMPs UV Free?
    Yes they are UV free!
  • How often should I use my HAPPŸLAMP?
    We recommend you use your HAPPŸLAMP daily for approximately 30-60 minutes per day, during the winter months when sun is limited. It is most effective when used first thing in the morning upon waking. Ultimately, we are all different with different lifestyles, working rosters and time constraints so find what works for you!
  • How do I use my HAPPŸLAMP?
    To be effective, the light must be able to reach your eyes. We suggest sitting approximately 30-60cm away from your HAPPŸLAMP. Ideally, use your HAPPŸLAMP first thing in the morning when you wake for a minimum of 30 minutes. If this is not possible, your HAPPŸLAMP can be used throughout the day, however avoid using it later in the afternoon or evening as it may affect your sleep patterns.
  • Do I need to replace the bulb/globe in my HAPPŸLAMP?
    No, you do not need to change the bulb as a HAPPYLAMP is designed to last for up to 100,000 hours of use
  • How far away do I need to have my HAPPŸLAMP for it to be effective?
    If possible, it is best to sit at arm's length away from your HAPPYLAMP - approximately 30 to 60cm.
  • Is HAPPŸLAMP safe for children?
    Yes HAPPŸLAMP is safe for children. Ensure your child does not look directly into the lamp and build their exposure time slowly every day. If your child is experiencing any side effects, decrease exposure time or move the lamp further away. Parental supervision is recommended.
  • Can I wear glasses or contact lenses while using my HAPPŸLAMP?
    Yes you can wear glasses and contact lenses as long as they are clear and don't have tinted lenses. Light must enter through the eyes to be effective so sunglasses or tinted lenses will prevent HAPPŸLAMP from working effectively. HAPPŸLAMP will not work if you fall asleep.
  • What is Lux?
    Lux can be described as the amount of light that falls on an object. Bright sunlight can emit up to 120,000 lux, whereas an overcast day can be less than 1,000 lux, and a stormy day less than 200 lux. Office and home lights generally supply approximately 500 lux. Research shows that well being is improved by daily exposure to light of more than 2,500 lux. HAPPYLAMP gives you a choice of settings from 2000 - 12,000 lux, with 4 timer settings, ensuring you receive enough daily light for optimal health and happiness in just 30 minutes a day.
  • Is there evidence light therapy works?
    Research into light therapy for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) has shown promising results, establishing it as a valuable and effective treatment. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression that typically occurs during specific seasons, most commonly in Autumn and Winter when daylight hours are shorter. Light therapy, also known as phototherapy, involves exposure to bright artificial light that mimics natural sunlight. Here are some key findings from research studies: 1. Origins of Light Therapy for SAD: Light therapy was first developed and identified as the primary treatment for Winter Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) (Partonen and Pandi-Perumal, 2009). This form of depression is characterized by mood disturbances and low energy levels during the darker months. 2. Effectiveness and Quick Action: ·Studies have consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of light therapy in alleviating symptoms of SAD. Research by Martiny et al. (2004) found that light therapy has a rapid onset of action, with noticeable improvements in just a few days. 3. Low Side-Effect Profile: One of the notable advantages of light therapy is its minimal side effects. Terman and Terman (1999) reported a low incidence of adverse reactions, making it a well-tolerated treatment option. 4. Expansion Beyond Seasonal Depression: Over time, the application of light therapy has extended beyond treating SAD. Terman (2007) and subsequent studies have explored its efficacy in addressing non-seasonal major depression, showcasing its versatility as a therapeutic intervention. 5. Comparison to Antidepressant Medications: Findings from various reviews, including those by the APA Committee on Research on Psychiatric Treatments (Golden et al., 2005) and a Cochrane review (Tuunainen et al., 2004), indicate that light therapy for non-seasonal depression is comparable in effectiveness to many antidepressant medications. This suggests its potential as an alternative or complementary treatment. 6. Enhanced Recovery in Combination with Antidepressants: Combining light therapy with standard antidepressant drug treatment for unipolar depression has shown positive outcomes. Studies by Benedetti et al. (2003) and Martiny et al. (2005) revealed that this combination can hasten recovery, with patients experiencing benefits early in the treatment process. In summary, research on light therapy for Seasonal Affective Disorder has demonstrated its efficacy, rapid action, and versatility in addressing not only seasonal depression but also non-seasonal major depression. Its low side-effect profile and compatibility with standard antidepressant medications make it a valuable therapeutic option for individuals affected by SAD and related conditions.
