Infrared Sauna

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.

Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. A Sunlighten sauna generates a sweat 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna

“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 colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” – Dr. Rachel West

Detoxification isn’t new, it’s 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.  A sauna is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat. During a sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through your pores.

It is believed that Sunlighten saunas are up to seven times more effective than a traditional sauna.  Far infrared saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 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.

Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification because of their highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon far infrared heating technology.  This is 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.

Steps to Sauna Detox

Do you know how to use an infrared sauna to properly detox?

Hydrate
Each day you use our sauna, make sure your water intake increases. While our far infrared sauna detoxification isn’t harsh, you are still sweating, some sweat much more than others. The sweat produced in a far infrared sauna is 80 – 85% water, so it is important that before, during, and after your sauna detox session, you drink plenty of water to rehydrate.

Set Time Limits
The amount of time spent in a sauna detox session may vary depending upon your tolerance and daily activity level. To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 10-15 minute sessions every other day. Gradually increase towards 40 minute daily sessions in the optimal temperature range. Listen to your body. Be aware of excessive detoxifying. If you begin to feel symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms during your sauna session, discontinue use.

Find a Comfortable Temperature
Begin your sauna session when the sauna reaches 100°F. The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100° and 130°F.

Rinse-Off
After each sauna detoxification session, dry off with a towel. It is best to let your body cool off naturally while still burning calories. Finish it off with a cool glass of water and you are ready to take on the day.

Sunlighten saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress reduction. Relaxation is very important to our health. Stress impacts not just the mind but the body, as well.

Studies show that high levels of stress have great impact on the brain. From memory problems to anxiety to learning difficulties, the effects of stress on the mind are immense. Neuroscientists have shown that chronic stress can even cause differences in grey and white matter in the brain, as well as the size and connectivity of the amygdala. High levels of stress can even impact the number of neurons found in the brain.

Reduce stress and relax in our Sunlighten Sauna. The infrared therapy will soothe your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth.  Relaxing in our sauna provides stress relief in a number of ways. The heat from the sauna relaxes the body’s muscles, improves circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s all-natural “feel good” chemical, and their release provides a truly wonderful “after sauna glow.” Our sauna is designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to loosen your body and your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction.

Stress on the Body

The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain, and weakening of the immune system.

There’s a simple 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 sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.

Relax and Reduce Stress with Sunlighten

Sunlighten saunas deliver the most therapeutic infrared sauna heat per square inch (up to 99% efficient), so that you can be enveloped in soothing warmth to help you relieve stress, ease your muscles and fully relax.

Looking to lose weight?

A Sunlighten Sauna can help. Sunlighten saunas help you lose weight by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in comfort.  Maintaining a healthy weight is important to your overall quality of life.  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. By maintaining a healthy weight you may be able to live a longer, healthier life.

Infrared Heat Technology

Using infrared heat technology to burn calories, Sunlighten saunas are clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a 2009 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”. Sunlighten saunas can be an effective lifestyle advantage for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems. 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.  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. Your Blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.  Regular use of a Sunlighten sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercises, such as cardiovascular conditioning. Using Sunlighten for infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout!

Frequently Asked Questions About Sauna Weight Loss

How do saunas help me lose weight?
Sunlighten saunas have been proven to aid in weight loss by heating your core temperature to induce sweating. Increases in blood flow and heart rate are a result, which, much like moderate exercise, has shown to help you lose weight. Saunas also help you lose weight by easing aches and pains associated with weight training, helping you get back into the gym the next day.

How much weight can I lose in a sauna?
There’s a lot that goes into weight loss, including your current weight, and eating and exercise habits. There is not a set number of pounds lost using an infrared sauna, but sessions have been shown to burn as much as 600 calories.

How do I use a sauna to lose weight?
The most popular way to lose weight in an infrared sauna is to sit back and relax! But there are many more ways to enhance your session and subsequent weight loss. Performing hot yoga while in your Sunlighten sauna could not only improve weight loss, but offers other health benefits like flexibility and better sleep. If hot yoga sounds too strenuous, consider adding mild stretching to your sauna session. This low-impact workout is not only relaxing but it helps raise your core temperature a bit more effectively aiding in weight loss while in the sauna.

What is the difference in steam sauna and infrared sauna for weight loss?
A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time.

Skin Purification and Rejuvenation

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

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 use.  Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity, and firmness.

Sauna Skin Benefits

Acne
Infrared saunas may not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but they may actually help reduce acne in the first place. Infrared saunas cause you to sweat from infrared heat which can help clean out those clogged pores. When a sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures the unclogged pores do not clog up again.

Skin Detoxification
Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as heavy metals. Sunlioghten’s technology heats your body to the core, pulling out toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues beyond just within your skin.

Tone and Texture
In a study done in 2006, doctors looked at the impact of infrared on collagen and elastin in our skin, two of the most important ingredients to healthy skin. They found that both collagen and elastin increased after exposure to infrared, and all patients included in the study reported enhanced skin texture, less roughness, and improvement in color.

Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s patented 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.

Infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which has the ability to gently and comfortably penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits like boosting your immune system.  Infrared light also comes in several forms. Each form offers unique wellness perks that together provide a holistic approach to better mind and body.

Because far infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Your sweat then pushes out the toxins, cleansing your body and rejuvenating your skin. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction and weight loss, along with a wide range of other health benefits.

Far infrared sauna therapy has been shown to provide a variety of health benefits, detoxification, reducing blood pressure, slowing the aging process, and also the advanced healing of skin lesions and wounds. Currently, the technology produced by far infrared sauna heat and light therapies demonstrates its capability of encouraging cell regeneration.

The largest organ in the human body is our skin.  One of the most important roles that our skin plays is that of a protective barrier against damaging environmental elements such as moisture, harmful rays from the sun, bacteria and toxic substances. Any open wound or injury on the skin’s surface serves as an entry portal for dangerous substances to enter the bloodstream. When wounds occur the body responds by supplying blood and nutrients to the skin surface in order to promote healing and prevent infection. New cells are produced, and will eventually form new tissue and blood vessels at the wound site.

Clinical studies have found that sauna therapy, in addition to healing damaged muscle and tissue, accelerates and enhances this recovery process of open wounds. A study conducted by NASA found that infrared therapy accelerated cell regeneration, promoted tissue growth, prevented infection and enhanced the skin’s natural healing process

Wounds, cuts, scars and even acne will heal quicker when bathed in the warm and gentle infrared light waves. Far infrared also aids in de-stressing and encouraging deep relaxation. Far infrared sauna therapy also slowly and efficiently restores toxic elimination through the skin.

While sweating inside a far infrared sauna we assist our body’s ability to expunge toxins the like of mercury, lead and additional contaminants which have been building in our systems for years. This is all necessary when healing various skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and wounds. When using far infrared heat there are some wonderful benefits; heart, lung, kidney and other organs functions are improved.

For those suffering from certain skin diseases, or those just wishing to improve the look and feel of their skin, far infrared can be particularly therapeutic. Healthy sweat makes your skin glow. The skin is not recognized as our largest and major organ of elimination. It is necessary to sweat occasionally for good health. Repeated and consistent use of a far infrared sauna, on a regular basis, reduces the body’s toxic load. The gentle and warming infrared rays promote perspiration and a release of toxins by way of the entire skin’s surface. Since ancient times sweating has been a major way of cleansing the body both inside and out.

Far infrared sauna therapy strongly supports your body’s ability to allow your skin to heal wounds and grow newer, healthier tissue. Cell growth is increased, and the wound size is decreased. Infrared light and heat are truly wonderful for healing your skin.

Only Sunlighten saunas are backed by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.

As part of a blood pressure therapy program, regular use of a Sunlighten infrared sauna is good for your heart! In the U.S. alone, one in three adults suffers from heart disease, stroke or some other form of cardiovascular disease in their lifetime. High blood pressure increases your risk of getting heart disease, kidney disease or serious stroke.

Sunlighten saunas have been clinically determined to provide one of the best, natural ways to lower blood pressure. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, Sunlighten’s Solocarbon far infrared heaters were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.

Tips to Lowering Blood Pressure in an Infrared Sauna

When using an infrared sauna to lower blood pressure, there are a few tips and tricks to make the most of each session.

Hydrate
Increase your water intake each day you are planning on a sauna session.

Set Time Limits
It’s best, to begin with short sessions until your body has time to adjust. Start with a few minutes at a time, then slowly work up to longer sessions. The optimal time to work towards is 40 minutes.

Supplement Mineral Loss
No matter what your infrared sauna session entails, you are working up a healthy sweat. Within this sweat are some minerals your body needs to be its healthiest. With frequent use of infrared saunas comes the need to up your mineral intake with supplements. Speak with your doctor or nutritionist to ensure proper type and dosage of supplements.

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.

Infrared saunas use infrared light to penetrate your body’s skin barrier to raise your core temperature. This is different from a traditional sauna that has to heat the air before it actually heats you. Because of these differences, infrared saunas get less hot, allowing you to spend more time inside reaping the benefits.

Infrared saunas typically emit far-infrared, but the infrared spectrum consists of three different wavelengths – each with their own healing capabilities. Near-infrared (NIR) penetrates the least past the skin barrier to help more on a surface level by fighting against signs of aging and helping to heal wounds. Mid-infrared (MIR) goes a little deeper to help reduce inflammation and chronic pain and far-infrared (FIR) goes the deepest into the body to help with chronic pain as well as draw out toxins.

For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from a 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 a sports medicine expert from the University of Southern California and consultant to Lance Armstrong

A study reported in Clinical Rheumatology showed that infrared saunas gave significant relief for patients with chronic pain (such as rheumatoid arthritis). Four weeks of 30-minute, twice-weekly sessions in an infrared sauna resulted in a 40 percent improvement in pain and stiffness.
A recent study published in Internal Medicine showed that patients with chronic pain saw their pain levels drop by nearly 70% after their first session of infrared sauna therapy.

Infrared saunas use infrared light to penetrate your body’s skin barrier to raise your core temperature. This is different from a traditional sauna that has to heat the air before it actually heats you. Because of these differences, infrared saunas get less hot, allowing you to spend more time inside reaping the benefits.

Infrared saunas typically emit far-infrared, but the infrared spectrum consists of three different wavelengths – each with their own healing capabilities. Near-infrared (NIR) penetrates the least past the skin barrier to help more on a surface level by fighting against signs of aging and helping to heal wounds. Mid-infrared (MIR) goes a little deeper to help reduce inflammation and chronic pain and far-infrared (FIR) goes the deepest into the body to help with chronic pain as well as draw out toxins.

For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from a 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 a sports medicine expert from the University of Southern California and consultant to Lance Armstrong

A study reported in Clinical Rheumatology showed that infrared saunas gave significant relief for patients with chronic pain (such as rheumatoid arthritis). Four weeks of 30-minute, twice-weekly sessions in an infrared sauna resulted in a 40 percent improvement in pain and stiffness.
A recent study published in Internal Medicine showed that patients with chronic pain saw their pain levels drop by nearly 70% after their first session of infrared sauna therapy.
