Background: Major depressive disorder is a debilitating disease that is significantly associated with personal, social and economic injury. Various therapies such as laser acupuncture and short-term intensive dynamic psychotherapy have been used in this area, but is the combination of these therapies more effective than either of them? Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of acupuncture scanning and laser therapy on depression. Method: This was a quasi-experimental study. The statistical population of this study consisted of people with major depressive disorder referring to New Vision Center in Tehran (2018-2019). 10 patients with major depressive disorder referred to New Vision Center were selected by random sampling. Research instruments included Beck Depression Inventory (1961) and revised Symptom Checklist (SCL-90-R; Drogatis, 1975), short-term intensive scanning psychotherapy sessions (Davanlo, 1997), and laser medicine therapy. Traditional. Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance. Results: Both laser therapy and laser therapy combined with dynamic psychotherapy reduced depression (P<0/001). Conclusions: Laser acupuncture affects many neurotransmitters and transmitters in the central nervous system and is coupled with dynamic psychotherapy that helps to release emotions and bring them to consciousness. Depression helps.
