Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal, stay healthy and detoxify.
In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80%
water, while in a conventional sauna, the average person only sweats out 3%
toxins and 97% water.
Studies have shown a 40 minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600
calories. As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a
substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate.
Sunlighten saunas deliver the ultimate experience in relaxation. With the most
therapeutic infrared heat found in Solocarbon® heating technology, our saunas
are guaranteed to help you relax in comfort with an invigorating sweat that will
have you feeling stress-free with each session.
Clinical research on pain has shown evidence of heat responsive pain or HRP,
which encompasses several common pain conditions that can be specifically
treated with the use of our infrared heat therapy.
Blood Pressure Reduction
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon® heaters were shown in a clinical study by the
University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 to lower blood pressure from a 30
minute infrared sauna session three times per week.
Sunlighten saunas heat your muscles with infrared rays and produces an
increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. 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.
A study 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.
Studies conducted by NASA concluded that NIR LED light significantly
promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human tissue growth.
Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size
decreased by 36%.
Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, which causes
more toxins to flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell
health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
What is Infrared Light?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the natural radiant heat emitted by the sun. It is 100% safe and even used to warm premature babies. Picture yourself feeling the sun’s rays on a warm day. That is what it is like to be in a Sunlighten™ sauna. This comforting heat warms you from the inside, for a deep and detoxifying sweat.
Infrared vs. Traditional Saunas
Sunlighten saunas use infrared heat rays instead of steam, as is used in traditional saunas. Infrared gently heats the body from within instead of heating the air. It has the ability to penetrate the surface of the skin, which gives your body overall radiant warmth. Traditional heaters only heat the air, which can become extremely hot and uncomfortable in which to breathe.
