INFRARED SAUNA

Infrared Sauna Detoxification

Sweating is good for you. Seriously, sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. And that’s why every Sunlighten detox sauna is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat.

 

Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with cholitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.
-Dr. Rachel West

 

Sauna detox helps you sweat the small stuff.
Did you know that sauna detox has been widely embraced as a healthy treatment in alternative medicine? In fact, as the world moves toward more natural and self-directed treatments, sauna detoxification is getting more and more attention.

Why? Well, the leading principle of sauna detoxification states that the build-up of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.

The United States Center for Disease Control estimates that the root causes of more than 80% of all illnesses are found in personal environments or lifestyles. In other words, the world around you can make you sick. It’s in the air we breathe, and in the food we eat. There’s very little we can do to reduce exposure. We can, however, use sauna detox as a treatment. Sweat the small stuff in a Sunlighten infrared sauna, and sweat yourself to better health and wellness.

Detoxification isn’t new. Just better.
Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. And what is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat? A sauna, of course. In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.

In fact, Sunlighten saunas are seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. Our detox saunas use far infrared heat to generate sweats with a toxin ratio of nearly 20%. In traditional saunas, you might get a 3% ratio. We’re able to offer this incredible rate of detoxification because of our highly-efficient and proprietary infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them.  As a result, regular usage of a Sunlighten sauna detox will provide a truly deep, productive sweat where toxins reside, at the cellular level.


Infrared Sauna Weight Loss

In the mood to lose weight? Sunlighten can help. Our saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.

The secret is out on sauna weight loss.

Maintaining a healthy weight is important to your overall quality of life. That’s no secret. In fact, a 10-year study published by The New England Journal of Medicine discovered that the circumference of your waist alone is a critical factor for assessing the risk of premature death. In other words, by maintaining a healthy weight, you may be able to live a longer, healthier life.

That’s where we come in with the Sunlighten brand of weight training: sauna weight loss. Using infrared heat technology to burn calories, our saunas – and only our saunas – are clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a 2009 study, our infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period. The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but "much more relaxing".  Therefore, Sunlighten saunas can be an effective lifestyle adjuvant for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems.¹

In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories.² During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.³

Plus, regular use of a Sunlighten sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning. That’s right, using Sunlighten for infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – wherever and whenever you need it!


Infrared Sauna Pain Relief

One of the most compelling reasons to purchase a Sunlighten sauna is the natural pain relief associated with infrared sauna therapy.

Sunlighten infrared sauna owners love to tell us about the pain relief properties of their sauna sessions. You too can toss the pain pills and step into one of our healing infrared sanctuaries to relieve tension and relax muscles. Sunlighten infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our 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, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.

 

Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal.
-Dr. Jeffrey Spencer - University of Southern California

 

A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery compared stretching in a Sunlighten mPulse full spectrum sauna compared to a typical training room environment.  Participants completed a series of hamstring stretches in random order with 48 hours separating the sessions.  Results showed that acute flexibility increased up to 3x in the mPulse sauna than without!  Benefits to the increased range of motion include joint mobility, less friction in the joints, enabling of joint function to diminish stiffness and joint relaxation.   View study

A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.1

Additionally, in a NASA study done by Dr. Whelan with near-infrared heat, determined that LED technology allows for deep penetration of tissue and increased cell growth from the inside.2 Sunlighten’s mPulse series--with its proprietary Solocarbon® Custom Spectrum™ heating technology--is the only sauna on the market that offers LED-based near infrared heat at this proven level.

Finally, a 2003 study conducted by the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Medical Research showed that use of near-infrared heat therapy helped the production of white blood cells to alleviate inflammation and reduce swelling, two key factors in easing bodily pain.3 Again, only mPulse’s heating technology is scientifically proven to deliver these types and levels of therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths. 

Improved Circulation

Owning and using a Sunlighten sauna for infrared therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – whenever you need it!

As a health sauna, Sunlighten heats your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.1

The elevation in body temperature from Sunlighten sauna use also produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid-infrared range – has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your health sauna session is completed. A cardio workout has never been so relaxing! Another benefit of improved circulation from Sunlighten sauna use is quick muscle recovery – after your regular workouts. The increased peripheral circulation from our infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and speeds healing, all important steps in helping the body recover from strenuous activity.

 

...the cardiovascular cleansing properties of Sunlighten saunas allow the circulatory system to have increased circulation and oxygenation while lowering blood pressure.
-Dr. Rachel West

 

More health experts recommend Sunlighten saunas than any other because of proven effectiveness. Dr. Mark Hyman, New York Times bestselling author and editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed medical journal Alternative Therapies in Health & Medicine, owns a Sunlighten sauna and says, “Sunlighten saunas improve circulation, help with weight loss, balance blood sugar and improve detoxification.”

Sunlighten health sauna therapy supports a healthy, active lifestyle. For more information on the health benefits of the Sunlighten sauna line, or to purchase one of our far-infrared health sauna kits, please contact Sunlighten today!



Skin Rejuvenation

As part of a sauna skin therapy program, Sunlighten infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance.

Forego expensive cosmetic treatments that may have limited effects or questionable long-term safety. Instead, rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with Sunlighten’s leading infrared sauna therapy.

A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.1 Sunlighten’s Solocarbon Custom Spectrum is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with near-infrared technology!

Sauna skin therapy works! Our customers have spoken: “I have been using my Sunlighten sauna almost every day and I absolutely love it. I've noticed that my complexion is getting better. I've struggled with break-outs for as long as I can remember. Since using the sauna my face is looking so much better. It has a healthy glow and the fine lines on my face seem to be lessened too. My husband has started using it frequently and now my teenage son. His complexion looks great; makes me wish we had a sauna when I was a teen! - Eva B., satisfied customer

“As so many people reported, my Sunlighten sauna has changed the character of my skin. It is much suppler without having to add moisturizers. After just two sessions a girlfriend asked me what I been doing because my face looked so much smoother and younger (I have a lot of acne scarring, and it seems to have softened the appearance). Delighted and will continue to use! - Alyne H., satisfied customer

Sauna skin therapy is essential to well-toned, healthy, great-looking skin. For more information on the other health benefits of the Sunlighten sauna line, or to purchase one of our SoloCarbon far-infrared health sauna kits, please contact Sunlighten today!



Cell Health, Muscle Recovery & Immunity

Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s exclusive heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense.

Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse 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.

Sunlighten’s research-backed near infrared heating technology can strengthen the immune system. In fact, a NASA study showed this same near infrared therapy, delivered by LEDs deep into body tissue, can quadruple cell health and tissue growth.1

Several studies have shown that LEDs (like those found in our mPulse saunas) stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level.

A study done at the Medical College of Wisconsin demonstrated that LED-produced near infrared (NIR) helps promote cell health and regeneration.2 The LEDs in our Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heaters produce infrared in this same range.

A study from The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology concluded that LED near infrared (NIR) restores enzyme activity and reduces cell death by half.2

 

Regardless of the extent of the injury, someone who regularly uses this type of sauna will recover faster...It doesn’t add additional stress to the body or the injury. It actually works with the body to heal.
-Dr. Jeffrey Spencer - University of Southern California

 

According to The Doctor’s Prescription for Health Living, Sunlighten’s infrared heat is one of the best treatments for sprains, strains, muscle spasms, and other injuries associated with sports because it works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.
