Our sauna uses infrared rays to heat your body directly and gently. The heat penetrates deeply into your muscles, joints and tissue to increase circulation and oxygen flow. Infrared saunas can assist you with a range of health benefits, including pain relief, weight loss, skin purification, blood pressure and relaxation.

PAIN RELIEF

One of the primary purposes of the sunlighten sauna is the natural pain relief that is accessible through infrared sauna therapy. Infrared rays can be effective in relieving anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals routinely incorporate infrared heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and to speed up recovery time.


RELAXATION

Unlike traditional saunas, which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing, and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. You can read or listen to music in the sunlighten sauna, or just enjoy the quiet while you relax in privacy.


Weight Loss

If your primary goal is weight loss, the sunlighten sauna promotes weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax. One weight loss session in our infrared sauna can burn upwards of 600 calories, as the infrared rays begin at a high intensity to stimulate your cardiovascular system and then reduces to a medium intensity throughout the session. As your body works to cool itself, your heart rate will increase to a similar rate to that induced by exercise, allowing you to see greater progress in your weight loss goals.


Detoxification

Sweating is good for you! It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. The Infrared rays in the sunlighten sauna bring about detoxification 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.

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 food. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.

OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Blood pressure reduction: sunlighten saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure, and helps circulation.

  • Improved circulation: heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.

  • Skin purification: sunlighten infrared saunas help to restore skin to a youthful appearance, healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin and stimulating collagen production.

  • Wound healing: infrared heating technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimise scarring through the use of near-infrared LEDs. Near-infrared therapy enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and tissue growth.

  • Cell health, muscle recovery, and immunity: near-infrared light therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates 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.
