What is infrared sauna therapy?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits.
Because 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. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction & weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one 40 minute session.

Detoxification 37 Minutes
Detox from a Sunlighten sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water.
Cardio 45 Minutes
Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. With regular use, you may see improved circulation and lower blood pressure.
Pain Relief 30 Minutes
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back pain and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under HRP classification.
Relaxation 40 Minutes
Far Infrared induces deep relaxation as it relieves muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall stress reduction with regular use.
Skin Health 30 Minutes
A low, constant intensity level penetrates tissue to help with various skin concerns. Near infrared improves overall skin tone, elasticity and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits.
Weight Loss 30 Minutes
Starts at a high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system then reduces to a medium level. As the body works to cool itself, there is an increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate similar to exercise.
Tip: Each day you are planning to user Infrared Sauna, make sure your water intake increases. While our far infrared sauna detoxification isn’t harsh, you are still sweating – some 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.
What are the health benefits of our full-spectrum infrared sauna?
Sweating is good for you and is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. Infrared saunas generate a sweat 7 x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna.
Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. 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. Infrared saunas have been designed to encourage the purest form of relaxation and stress reduction.
Looking to lose weight? Let our infrared sauna help! Our sauna helps you lose weight by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort. 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 per session. 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.
Lower Blood Pressure
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. Our infrared sauna has 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 heaters were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.
Naturally Improved Circulation
The elevation in body temperature from our sauna session 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!
You too can toss the pain pills and step into a healing infrared sanctuary to relieve tension and relax muscles. Infrared sauna’s 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.
Rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with infrared sauna therapy. Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as heavy metals. Our infrared 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. 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.
Cell Health, Muscle Recovery & Immunity
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of our infrared sauna therapy, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense. 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. 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.
Skin plays a vital role in the protection of our bodies from the external environment. When broken, it is important repair it quickly to prevent infection or further problems. 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%.
