Infrared light is part of the sun's invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate human tissue. Heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly, rather than just the air. Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe – no sunburns here! You can relax in the sauna without worry. It increases the body's core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed.
Infrared Saunas have millions of benefits! The experience is similar to sunbathing, which gives you radiant heat that is all your own without the harmful UV rays from the sun.
Conventional hot rock/steam saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. The steam also makes it difficult to breathe. You won't have any of those problems here. An infrared sauna uses soothing dry heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Heat therapy has also been shown to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation, and skin rejuvenation. Infrared sauna therapy helps you relax while getting an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed, rejuvenated & renewed. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas provide a gentle, soothing therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation & improved sleep.
Our proprietary Solocarbon heaters provide 7x more effective detoxification than those found in traditional saunas AND are the only infrared technology with clinical data shown to reduce blood pressure, increase core temperature, and aid in weight loss.
Sunlighten has led the industry for the past 6 years with the invention of Solocarbon® infrared heating technology. Now, this sauna will be the world’s first controllable full spectrum infrared heater. Inside the sauna, consumers will control the setting ranging from NEAR-Infrared light that aids in pain and muscle relief, to MID-Infrared light that assists in fat burning and weight loss, to FAR Infrared light that deepens the core sweat and is whole-body detoxifying.
Infrared sauna benefits include:
Joint Pain Relief
Clearer / Tighter Skin
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
infrared saunas can help with
Detox from an Infrared Sunlighten Sauna is 7-10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna, the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlighten sauna, you'd sweat out 20% toxins and 80% water!
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy! Researchers studying Heat Responsive Pain observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low-level heat therapy for treating body pain, and all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.
30-minute infrared sauna sessions can burn 200-600 calories! Your heart rate increases your cardiac output and metabolic rate as your body works to cool itself. Sunlighten’s infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature, creating passive cardiovascular conditioning.
Reduce Blood Pressure
Our Solocarbon® heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City which resulted in lower blood pressure from a 30-minute sauna session 3x a week! Repeated treatment improves blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure.
Improve your skin with regular use of an infrared sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring and helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, skin lesions, and cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin radiant, firm, and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin!
Infrared heats your muscles which produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation accelerates blood flow. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and speed healing.
infrared sauna facts
What to Wear
We recommend wearing loose fitting, comfortable clothing! This will make putting your clothes back on quick and easy. You can wear clothes, swimsuits, or your birthday suit (we provide complimentary towel and robe service). To guarantee that your skin receives the full benefits of infrared heat during your sauna experience, remove all makeup!
Hydrate Before & After
Our sauna makes you sweat to actively burn more calories. It’s important to hydrate and fuel your body before and after your session. Always drink plenty of hydrating fluids before, during, and after your sauna session. Most people do not drink enough water to begin with and now that you are using an infrared sauna and sweating, it is even more important to stay hydrated.
Infrared saunas raise your core temperature by 1-3 degrees. The benefits are cumulative – meaning the more you come in, the better you will feel! It might take 10-20 minutes to break a sweat initially, but you'll become accustomed to raising your core temperature on a regular basis, your sweat will start sooner into your next session.
