What is it?
Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the hottest therapies for healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of a session in our Sunlighten infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna
Tapping into the natural detox of sweating it out
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Sunlighten saunas are designed for comfort to bring greater relaxation and stress reduction. Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep.
In the mood to lose weight? Sunlighten infrared saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort. Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax!
One of the most compelling benefits of infrared sauna therapy is natural pain relief. For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
Reduce Blood Pressure
Only Sunlighten saunas are backed by clinical research showing a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, both key factors in maintaining a healthy heart. It induces a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.
The near infrared wavelengths are for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
Sunlighten’s advanced Solocarbon Full Spectrum infrared heating has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring. Scientific research has concluded this greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth.
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s exclusive near, mid, and far infrared heat therapy technology. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
What is the difference between near and far infrared?
To begin with, 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. Naturally occurring from the sun, it is the basis for all Sunlighten™ saunas. Infrared light also comes in several forms. Each form offers unique wellness perks that together provide a holistic approach to better mind and body. Learn about how near infrared differs from far infrared, and how each benefit you.
Near infrared technology used in Sunlighten Infrared Saunas is similar to the infrared used in cosmetic and healing devices. The LED technology we use allows our heaters to produce consistent near infrared without extreme heat or light, making it a safe option for near infrared use. Near infrared waves have a shorter frequency range and penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin. This is how near-infrared is able to impact your body at the cellular level, encouraging tissue growth, speeding up muscle recovery and strengthening your immune system.
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
”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 SpencerUniversity of Southern California
