Wellness is within reach because infrared’s healing light energy has been proven in many ways to help our bodies feel better. With gentler and more effective heat, Sunlighten’s infrared sauna benefits allow you to stay longer and reap more overall health benefits. Sunlighten has perfected infrared technology to bring you the safest, most efficient and effective infrared available.
Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. Infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with detoxification, pain relief, weight loss and cellulite removal, lower blood pressure, improved circulation, anti-aging, skin purification and rejuvenation, improved cell health and immunity, wound healing, relaxation, and stress relief.
GET THE OPTIMAL DOSE OF EACH IR WAVELENGTH
The most advanced infrared therapy available is Sunlighten's Solocarbon 3-in-1infrared treatment. The infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) waves, each with distinct characteristics and health benefits. Sunlighten delivers the perfect wavelength of each infrared wave, like dialing in a specific radio station. You get precise near, mid and far wavelengths for optimal results, made possible with NASA-inspired tech. The SoloCarbon® coating delivers 99% effective infrared meaning your body absorbs it almost perfectly. You want to receive the infrared waves your body receives best so that you get the maximum health benefit.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared sauna use causes a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Only Sunlighten saunas arebacked by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
Near infrared saunas provide the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Near infrared sauna therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Studies have shown that a far infrared sauna therapy session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. In fact, a 2009 study showed Sunlighten far infrared therapy to lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.
A 2019 study compared participants’ cardiovascular effects in a sauna and on an exercise bike. The increase in heart rate was similar to a short, moderate workout. Researchers stated, "A sauna session is a physical strain. Its long-term positive effects are comparable to sports activities." The focus was on the benefits to the heart and cardiovascular system, rather than weight loss or muscle development. We call it a “passive cardio workout.”
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, and speeds up recovery time. A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery showed that Sunlighten 3-in-1 treatments can increase flexibility up to 3x. Combined with our flexibility routine, you'll be touching your toes in no time.
Near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth.
Heat, in and of itself, is great for recovery, temporary pain relief and inflammation. Infrared light heats the body from within and penetrates the joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and blood flow.
Good circulation is critical for proper healing. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the site of the strain or inflammation, which helps to create new blood vessels and tissues at the site. The more red and white blood cells that can get delivered to muscles, the quicker they rebuild. Studies show NIR improves muscle mass and decreases inflammation and oxidative stress.
In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
