We are excited to now offer Sunlighten Infrared Sauna to our clients. Sunlighten is recommended by countless experts including Dr. Mark Hyman, Kris Carr, and Jordan Rubin.
What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for SunlightenTM sauna therapy.
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.
How Safe is Infrared?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional
Sunlighten saunas use infrared heat instead of hot rocks or steam used in traditional saunas. Traditional saunas heat the air at extremely high temperatures which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heats the body directly instead of simply heating the air, infrared saunas are seven times more effective for detoxification. In a Sunlighten sauna, you will experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life.
Detoxification: A Sunlighten sauna generates a sweat 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna. Researchers have long known that toxic substances, including heavy metals, are eliminated from the body through sweat. Therefore, the more you can safely sweat (while maintaining proper hydration), the greater quantity of toxins will be released from your body. Infrared sauna usage is one of the most effective methods of inducing a detoxifying sweat.
Relaxation: Experience the purest form of relaxation and stress-reduction
Weight Loss: Studies have shown a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories
Heart Health: Sunlighten Solocarbon® heaters have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure
Pain Relief: One of the most compelling reasons to use an infrared sauna is the natural pain relief associated with its use. Sunlighten saunas work by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally. For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, constant fatigue, fibromyalgia, joint pain/stiffness and other chronic pain conditions such as arthritis and Lyme disease with continuous use of infrared heat therapy
Anti-Aging: The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by infrared therapy
Cell Health/Immunity: Stay healthy with the natural preventative properties of exclusive LED near infrared heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery, and overall immunity defense
Wound Healing: Aadvanced LED near infrared technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimalize scarring
