Infrared heat has the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a range of health benefits. As a sauna heating technology, infrared is a recent innovation of the last two decades. Yet, the same technology has been used extensively. Especially in other industries from healthcare to space exploration for many decades. Infrared Saunas by Sunlighten have been endorsed by health and wellness professionals worldwide.
The Sunlighten full spectrum infrared sauna with patented Solocarbon®. Full Spectrum is is an advanced blend of near, mid and far infrared heating technology that is clinically shown to raise the body’s core temperature by nearly three degrees without exposing the body to radiation.
Featuring an Android-powered touch screen and six pre-set programs for detoxification, cardiovascular, pain relief, relaxation, weight loss and skin health. The sauna is not recommended for anyone under the age of 16 years. Clients under the age of 18, a parent or guardian is required to sign a consent form prior to the initial appointment. We do not recommend the Sauna for pregnant women.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna
A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery compared stretching in a Sunlighten mPulse 3-in-1 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 mPulsa 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.
A blend of near, mid and far infrared starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output, then lowers to sustain heart rate circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.
Sunlighen infrared saunas are more effective in removing toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a Sunlighten infrared sauna 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.1
Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification because of our highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon 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.
1 Detoxification Through the Skin by Mark Sircus Ac., OMD March 6th, 2005
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.
Sunlighten's Solocarbon 3-in-1 is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with LED near-infrared light therapy! In fact, it comes with an anti-aging program that is designed from this study.
There's a relaxing and effortless way to reduce stress! Scientific evidence shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a Sunlighten sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward.
In fact, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
In a 2009 study, Sunlighten 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".

What is Infrared?
Infrared heat is safe and healthy for all living things?
